- There are now user-generated "Buying Guides" on eBay (I guess this is like Wikipedia for... eBay purchases?)
- There's an article about sofubi that came up #1 (!!!) when you search Google for "sofubi" - try it yourself!
- They mention Funko's Hikari figures, which I was what I was trying to edit on my site when I searched "sofubi" on Google
More reasons this is interesting:
- Writing a useful Buyer's Guide could get you to the coveted #1 spot on Google. If you nerd out on a certain category of toy, I recommend writing one of these guides on eBay.
- Sofubi is interesting enough to the general public to have a guide written and published.
- It's still being argued about whether sofubi can come from China when manufacturer uses same techniques and materials. I say NO, it's a different term for soft vinyl from China, but hey what the fuck do I know, I'm just a gaijin.
- If you've never seen how the small Japanese mom & pop shops produce sofubi, watch the video. Super interesting
