WIP pics for Rampage Toys x Imps and Monsters Sofubi: The Manotaur

Friend and toymaker Jon Malmstedt (Rampage Toys) sends us this REALLY exciting work-in-progress image of a new sofubi he will be helping produce locally in Tokyo: The Manotaur. Designed and sculpted by Justin Hillgrove (Imps and Monsters), this awesome 8-inch Japanese soft vinyl toy will be made in limited colorway runs. The aim is to debut the toy at Justin's booth at the Emerald City ComicCon in Seattle in the spring.

"The Manotaur roams the world in search of something he can’t quite remember. In fact, ever since he invited that fire spirit into his head he’s had trouble concentrating on little other than catering to his countless neuroses and consuming anything with the word “gummy” in the description. In any case, he’s pretty sure he’s forgetting something really important..."

Here's the illustration upon which this character is based:

Pause Designs Chainsaw Panda custom Dunny

Eric from Pause Designs emailed us these images of his sweet Chainsaw Panda custom, based on an 8" Dunny platform. I'm not going to lie, he emailed this to me about 3 weeks ago so he probably thinks I'm a big jerk. Well, Eric's work is tight and despite how long it took me to post this, it's DEFINITELY worthy of a post, even a late one. Also, you should really check out Pause Design's website. Pause seems to be a collective of 5 people, and they have some awesome products like t-shirts & skate decks available, in addition to videos and just a whole mess of content. Cool website. I'm impressed. Click here.
