that head robot is bugging me out.
I keep wanting to look away, but then I come back to it... wtf!
Theres a spot up top for Yamomark minis (or any mini) to sit up in the top of the head gotta get one of these guys
I know what you mean!
It really is weird and much different from the existing Yamomark catalog.
Looks like TE meets Amapro in some regards and Glenn you correct
on the head being open like a bucket. Very inspiring to see this doll.
So is the Crayfish, I really really really need that when it surfaces!
I asked a friend in Japan and they seemed to think it was the "metal molds factory he had entrusted" so I'm guessing just the mold making factory. I guess he's not the only sofubi artist to have used them. Still investigating...
I can confirm a mold factory is closing, expect delays.
A few more pics from Yamomark
This new guy and the Crayfish were just delivered to my friend/contact in Japan.
Really looking forward to getting this Crayfish. Only Sofvi picked up since April.
I don't even collect Yamomark but this Crayfish was just too irresistible to pass.
I'm really digging the crayfish too! Such a "normal" yet detailed sculpt.
And that head is just beyond bizarre... hilarious that he has a hole in his head where you can stick a mini!
This Sofvi Crayfish/Zarigani means more to me than just another doll.
This will be one of the last toys that I buy, just not into how goofy things are with vinyl.
Everything about this Crayfish is great and it appeals to me at a very personal level
One of my early and best memories of my dad was of him bringing me a small
plastic langostino size lobster that was up on display in the seafood section of
a grocery store. He apparently aped it for me after they said he couldn't buy it.
I used to War it against HO scale Armymen
So who got lucky today?
I put the Coijarus, GID Crayfish, and GID Dumpling in my cart and proceeded to checkout... all went smoothly until the final "Order" button was clicked to finalize payment and I got an alert that the Dumpling Monsters were all gone!
Missed it again, but I still managed to get the other two. My first Koi and Crayfish. Aquatic delight.
Been waiting for the dumpling monster. No luck. I haven't completely decided on the crayfish because that blue doesn't look great to me. Last I checked there was one left. The decision probably already got made for me
I'm a huge sucker for anything GID so I just had to have the crayfish! I'm sure there will be many other colors in the future though, this is just the second version, I believe.
I grabbed one of each of the new minis, the crayfish and the Cialis Q10 with black glasses (yellow sold out in my cart lol)
is there a story behind mr. robot head?
Not that I'm aware of. But here is my Yamomark haul, minus the crayfish
How the heck can the Yamomark thread be quiet for 15 months?? That's just insane.. here's a recent pickup of a guy I've been eyeing off for a little bit. Happy that I finally pulled the trigger on it!
Been holding out for a Mushroom Soup man for years (not that they have been that common recently anyway) but I had no hesitation in pulling the trigger on his almost-hawaiian version a few weeks back... does anybody know when this version was released?
^^ December 2009, Patchi-Summit release.
