We love surprises and TODAY Tara McPherson x Tomenosuke x Circus Posterus “STELLA & FLUX ” gets an online release! The prototype made its debut at Dcon and official confirmation that white/grey blanks (which turned out to be an edited photo in B&W) of STELLA & FLUX were going to be on sale at this weekend Tokyo Comic Con at Tomenosuke booth plus an online at Circus Posterus. Moments ago Circus Posterus uploaded a green version of the Tara McPherson’s long-awaited STELLA & FLUX and on sale NOW. Yohei Kaneko of mirock-toy who sculpted STELLA & FLUX did an amazing job making Tara’s 2D art come to life in 3D! 3 years in the making and its here waiting for you.
Among all sofubi figures of T+CP, the brand in collaboration with Circus Posterus, this Tara’s figure is by far the one that took the most time to make. Now that it is finished, I even feel nostalgic about those 3 years behind us, but I also recall all these times when we were about to be discouraged in the middle of the production.
Anyways, once we conveyed to the prototype sculptor (through Brandt Peters) the intention of the artist making the sofubi figure for the first time, of course, the sculptor requested a change in the design. Here is when I must give a feedback to the artist, together with annotations, so that the artist can well understand, but this is precisely difficult to do. And this is what we have been doing for 3 years, over and over again. The truth is, all people participating to this project were too busy and could not immerse themselves in this figure only. I may be the busiest person of all of them, but I gave up some of my plans and devoted myself in the role of messenger.
40 pieces were made in total, half of them were delivered to Circus Posterus, and Tomenosuke will sell the other half all around the world, except North America. We are planning to sell half of these 20 pieces at Tokyo Comic Con. – Tomenosuke
