Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kaiyodo's Mega Sofubi Advance

Did I just completely miss this whole arm of Kaiyodo's corpus? I'm always awed and amazed (sometimes not in the best way) by super-huge toys. In this case, I definitely got a good impression, though. As I turned the corner, I...

Kibunadon rises from the depths to invade the U.S. photo
Kibunadon rises from the depths to invade the U.S.
by Brian Szabelski

So we've had cat kaiju, and dog kaiju ... how about some fish kaiju? That's what's new from Max Toy Co., as they've put together the mighty Kibunadon, based off of Teresa Chiba's character. Teresa won the Kaiju Gals Design-a-Kaiju contest, and I have to say that Kibunadon fits in well with Konatsu's Negora and Shibara figures.

The first U.S. release of Kibunadon is a red and yellow colorway with some gray and green accents, and can be had in the Max Toy Co. shop for US$40 right now.

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.
