    Wauuuuu, LB, where the hell did you get this? *envy* - It's my fav platform... only got one, but totally want the rest... :-/

    Is it GID too?

    Was able to grab it at Mandarake for quite a decent price. It's GID and is my first AAA piece, pretty cool! :-)

    Congrats! :)
    I've never bought anything from Mandarake. Seems like a labyrinth! Can't figure it out at all !! :(
    Tried KaijuBlue last week. They're weak compared to One-Up. Took 3-4 days for a negative answer; "Thank you for an inquiry.
    The product has much SOLD OUT",
    Of course none of them speak English, but One-Up is clearly using a better version of Google translator. KaijuBlue's email was nearly incomprehensible. :)

    I've bought a whole lot of stuff at Mandarake. They sometimes have flipper-prices, but often there's some pretty nice and cheap stuff to be found there, also they declare the package at a lower value and I never had to pay any taxes so far. Will drop you a mail later about it if you want to, it's actually quite easy. ;-)

    I've used Mandarake several times as well, and have only positive things to say about it. I'm a bigger sofubi fan than western, so that may help with my ease of navigation.

    Should there be a differentiation between vinyl and japanese vinyl?

    I think the differentiation between vinyl and Japanese vinyl is just fine. It's easier for people who want to search for a specific type of figure and in my opinion it can be considered a different material: it's not just usually lighter, glossier and has more details, but the manufacturing process and even the ingredients vary slightly (Jap vinyl is unhealthier, yay).

    The only thing one could merge would be Japanese vinyl, soft vinyl and sofubi, which is basically the same (but would be kind of a lot of work and I don't know if it would make sense to do so).

    I'm happy with the above classification if everyone agrees. Could take a lot of tag updating though :)

    Yes, I agree with LB. There certainly is a difference. Take one of your Dunnys in one hand and one of your Pocket Mummy Boys in the other. No comparison. Japan stuff has the feeling. Dunnys seem "dead".
    Why else would an esteemed company like S7 choose to have their toys entirely produced in Japan?
    Obviously there is a difference. But LB is right, Japanese vinyl, soft vinyl and sofubi is more or less the same.


    Actually you'll find Japanese and Sofubi under "Type" tag as well.


    I suggest we keep one entry for Type: Sofubi.
    And one entry for material: Soft Vinyl.

    That way we have both

    Just one thing; we mods have to keep our eyes peeled when new uploads are coming in. But it isn't that a big thing.

    (OK, I see Dan was faster, than I was :) )

    I don't think sofubi is a type. Sofubi just means "soft vinyl." I think a Mummy Boy is just a designer toy. I think the material should be sofubi and the type should be whatever is appropriate, usually designer toy or kaiju.

    I think Shank actually nailed it pretty precise here...

    Certainly there's a difference between designer toys and kaijus.

    Everybody happy?

    If you google the name of the toy and a bunch of stills from old Japanese movies show up, it's a kaiju.

    Err.. but aren't they called "sofvi" now...? Maybe we should reconsider the whole thing?? ;O/

  • CoMus angel

    I think the type should be removed all together or just a ‘family’ term: vinyl/plush/resin/3D printed

    As so many designers/stores/collectors are referring to Japanese made vinyl as Sofubi now, I think the material for all should be changed to sofubi.... then again, it might all be called 'Super Flexible Magical Plastic' next year so you'll have to change it all over again.

    Sofvi/sofubi/japanese vinyl = all the same thing. You can get soft vinyl out of China though.
