Biggish gallery appears for FuRyu's biggish Colossal Titan

At 21-cm tall, FuRyu's Colossal Titan is big enough to tower over your Attack on Titan figma... even if he doesn't exactly scale well. The recently released soft vinyl figure has received a decent-sized photo gallery that sho...

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.

Empty's sofubi Colossal Titan manages to be large and small at the same time photo
Empty's sofubi Colossal Titan manages to be large and small at the same time
by Tianxiao Ma

Few things are funnier to me than seeing horrific villains doing casual things. That's why I got a kick out of Akiba Hobby's preview gallery for Empty's Colossal Titan. He's not menacing humanity, breaking down walls, or inconveniently appearing at the ends of inspirational monologues. He's just kind of chilling with another Colossal Titan buddy.

Empty's soft vinyl figure, while having Nendoroid-ish proportions, is actually pretty big. He stands about 20cm tall, which is just under 8" (or if you prefer, two billion angstroms). He also has a little bit of articulation, being able to rotate his arms and turn his head. Look forward to an April release for ¥4,800.

Kaiyodo's Hyper Sofubi Ultraman is a big, big deal

You ever look at your shelf and think there's something a little off about your Kamen Rider being the same height as your Ultraman? Kaiyodo's new Hyper Sofubi Ultraman is just the thing to correct that little annoyance. Made ...

Think spring with the newest Pocket Rose Vampire
by Brian Szabelski

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.

A very Bizarro Sofubi (and Superman) on the way

Things are looking a little more Bizarro (or Bizarro?) with the upcoming DC Heroes: Superman and Bizarro Sofubi Figures, set to appear in the pages of the February issue of Diamond Comics' PREVIEWS. The 9.75-inch tall figures...

De Korner, Scott Tolleson bring us Kookie No Good
by Brian Szabelski

Scott Tolleson's new work with De Korner is a pouty little bowtie-weatring fortune cookie named Kookie No Good. What is he no good at? Well, might just be fortune telling for all we know, but the little guy (he's a 3.5-inch-tall sofubi figure) looks so adorable being so sad. The first version of him also happens to be in celebration of the upcoming Year of the Horse, so he's painted in some traditional Chinese colors, namely red and gold.

Kookie's Year of the Horse colorway is going to be up in the De Korner shop in time for the Chinese New Year ... which is Friday. It'll be on sale at 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern, 6 p.m. GMT) for US$35 each.

New works from Buff Monster? Why yes: he has two new versions of his Mister Melty coming. One is a pink colorway, based on the original sculpt; the other is a zombie version. The Zombie Melty is unpainted blank white viny, featuring a torn-open head, bandaged arm and other battle scars.

The Pink Mister Melty is US$35, and the Zombie Melty is US$30, plus shipping. Both are available in Buff Monster's shop starting at 10 a.m. Eastern (7 a.m. Pacific, 3 p.m. GMT).

Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur to haunt Super7 photo
Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur to haunt Super7
by Brian Szabelski

I've been a fan of Super7 and Josh Herbolsheimer's Caveman Dinosaur since I picked one up at SDCC 2013, and he's had a few colorways, but nothing quite like this. Super7 is rolling out the Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur on Thursday, with a transparent sofubi body and painted on details (his club, eyes, teeth and outfit). It's not a drastic design change, but I think its pretty awesome looking. 

If you want one, they're going on sale Thursday at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) in the Super7 shop. Does the ghostly caveman dino catch your eye, Tomopop readers?

Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7 photo
Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7
by Brian Szabelski

They're baaaaaaack: Gargamel lucky bags are returning to Super7 on Thursday! Like years past, these will be a random assortment of various Gargamel pieces, including unique colorways and maybe even a special piece or two. Of course, you'll have no idea what you get until you open your bag up, so it's a bit like a very expensive blind-boxed figure.

Price-wise, they're US$300 each and available starting at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) from Super7. Anyone tried their luck at a lucky bag before, and if so, how'd it go for you?
