Finally, we send it off to our manufacturer, Acro. Acro is an amazing company based out of Japan who’ve done many of the hyper-detailed soft vinyl figures available now.
Here’s a small army of Pulgasauri getting painted by Acro:
In the end, we receive this amazing looking product from Acro, all ready for a home and available now.
Which leads us to… Announcing a new category for the Mondo Toys and Collectibles department: SOFT VINYL FIGURES!
We’re absolutely in love with the world of soft vinyl and sofubi toys and will be diving deep into it over the coming months and year.s Our new soft vinyl toy category is where we’ll be releasing in-house designed soft vinyl figures from licenses like Toho and Marvel, as well as distributing exclusive figures from toy designers we love.
This new category will be ground zero for us to get super creative with our licenses as well as work with some of the best and most talented toy designers out there. In fact, we thought it’d be nice to give you a sneak peek at some of the upcoming soft vinyl we’ll be releasing.
Man-Thing Soft Vinyl by James Groman and Mondo Toys
We’ve shared some concept art for James Groman’s take on the Marvel Comics monster Man-Thing, but are absolutely thrilled to share James’ massive finished sculpt, which comes in at a giant 12″ tall! Not only does James design and illustrate, but he sculpts and paints his creations too. Check out his instagram to see more of his amazing work and give him a follow. James is a toy industry legend and his outrageous talents are on full display here.
Can’t wait to show you all this guy painted up!
