Hey guys! As some of my Instagram followers may be aware, I recently quit my day job to focus 100% on toys. Whilst this of course will mean I’ll be taking on more production commissions, creating more of my own sofubi and painting whatever comes my way, the extra time will also mean I’ll be able to focus more of my energy on making Softoy Hobby the most comprehensive news site across both soft vinyl and keshi- yay! Before this though, I’m going to be taking some time out to visit the home of these very special toys that we all know and love, Japan’s capital Tokyo. Helping Rampage Toys’ Jon Malmstedt wrap things up before his move back to the States next month, as well as prepping for various shows we’ll be attending whilst I’m out there, I’ll also be spending some time on getting the proverbial ball rolling on my latest sofubi, the Sumoggub?ru. A follow up to the hugely popular Oozeball, Sumoggub?ru (roughly translated as Smog Ball) has been heavily inspired by smog monster kaiju – Bemon’s classic Kougai in particular – featuring a unique 360° rotatable mouth, 6 eyes which convey a wealth of expressions, as well as innumerable hidden details including power stations, waste pipes and even a micro Ooze-It for good measure! Designed by myself and sculpted by my good friend Richard Page of UME Toys, the crazy looking figure is due to be waxed during my stay, with a hopeful debut planned for DCon ’16 in late November… – Tru-Tek
