Konatsu's kaiju creatures are back with new colorways photo
Konatsu's kaiju creatures are back with new colorways
by Brian Szabelski

Konatsu's Negora and Shibara sofubi figures have been favorites for some time now; I think it's just seeing pets transformed into gigantic kaiju that makes me smile a bit. But as with all sofubi, a collector's work is never done ... because the artists keep releasing more and more colorways. New variants of Shibara (glow in the dark and snow green) and Negora (glow in the dark and snow purple) have arrived, along with their 1.75-inch counterparts Mamera and Migora. The "green figures" seem more blue to me, though, don't you think?

The 3.75-inch Negora and Shibara figures are US$35, and Mamera and Migora will be US$12. You can find them at Rotofugi both in-store and online.

Super7's Foster gets ready for spring photo
Super7's Foster gets ready for spring
by Brian Szabelski

Super7 brings us a new colorway of my favorite kaiju cookie, Foster, just in time for spring. The bright green Spring Forward Foster is cast in a sparkly translucent vinyl, and features buttercup yellow and silver accents for his mouth, eyes and filling. My Foster obsession compels me to buy one, I think.

Spring Forward Foster arrives at noon Pacific Thursday (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) for US$25 each. It's not as much of an instant buy as the frost-colored Foster, but I'll likely still own one. How about you?

GODAI Guardians crosses Kaiju with collectable USB figures

I will admit it: Kaiju figures and USB drives were a combination that I hadn't considered. But when the Kickstarter campaign for Kaiju USB: GODAI Guardians was brought to my attention, I realized that it was a match made...

Think spring with the newest Pocket Rose Vampire

Super7's next Rose Vampire takes root this week, and all plant puns aside, the S7 crew are teasing us with a Spring Green Pocket Rose Vampire. As you can guess, he'll be a green machine, cast in glittery green soft vinyl with metallic blue leaf accents and a little splash of dark green for the petals ... not to mention his red eyes.

The Spring Green Pocket Rose Vampire arrives at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) on Thursday at Super7, retailing at US$25 each.

Max Toy Co. drops a new Kaiju Negora colorway photo
Max Toy Co. drops a new Kaiju Negora colorway
by Brian Szabelski

Max Toy Co. has rolled out a new colorway of their Kaiju Negora sofubi figure, and this one is a slightly darker tone. The brown-and-yellow Sabertooth version does feature some metallic paint accents, especially around the eyes and spine, that give it a little more interesting look. You get the Big Fish accessory, too, as with the other Kaiju Negora figures.

If you're interested in the colorway, it's US$45 and you can pick one up from the Max Toy Co. shop until either they hit their pre-order limit or next week, when pre-orders will close.

Cojica Toys' Monoclon surfaces from the vinyl depths
by Brian Szabelski

Need some new kaiju in your life? Step right up: Lulubell has got a new figure from Cojica Toys called Monoclon that's coming next week! The Nara, Japan-based Cojica Toys is a flesh-tone piece, about 7.5 inches tall and painted with some sky blue and orange accents. Also, it has a triceratops-like head ... though technically I should call it ceratopsid-like, except only dinosaur nerds would probably understand what I'm referring to (it's the family of dinosaurs the triceratops comes from).

Each of these Monoclon figures will be available on Dec. 1 at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) for US$65 each on the Lulubell shop.

NYCC 2013: Lulubell and Velocitron

Lulubell Toys and Velocitron shared a NYCC booth, offering up a sampling of their wares. There were the usual selection of Japanese sofubi and kaiju figures, along with a few exclusives, including a cherry red Bones and Lucky from Mike Egan. They look a little more pinkish to me, but hey, I guess that's splitting hairs at this point. Check out the gallery for photos from the Lulubell booth!

NYCC 2013: Grass Hut and friends

Bwana Spoons and Grass Hut Corp. made the trip out to New York Comic Con, but they weren't alone this year. Along with Grass Hut's own variant figures, I've spotted figures from Rampage Toys, Yaki-mon and Zack Soto, among others. It's also a reminder, at least to me, about how small those Gachapon Goblins from Rampage Toys are. Check out the gallery for photos from the booth!
