FERG has finally announced details on the release of the FERG x Grody Shogun ‘YOUNG GOHST’ sofubi project! The series is comprised of thirteen 3″ figures that will be offered via a six-month subscription service. Two little dudes will blast your mailbox every month and the last shipment will contain three figures. Each release will have a different coloured body and brain. To add a little excitement, the brain sculpt will be selected at random! (Yes!! Even the brains vary! Mine is asploding right now!!)
The release is set for April 30th at noon central time and will be open for a week. Store link to come! Full subscriptions are $285 USD (works out to be about $22 a figure), domestic shipping included. International orders add $70 for shipping. For those who aren’t looking to commit to the full subscription, a 2-pack containing the first two releases will also be offered for $58 shipped.
A quick refresher for those who missed the initial news: Young Gohst is FERG’s new sofubi (Japanese soft vinyl) project in conjunction with Grody Shogun (Luke Rook of Lulubell). Sculpted by master of anatomical artistry Scott Wilkowski, the 3-inch soft vinyl figures feature a removable brain/spinal column with a tongue that sticks out of Young Gohst’s mouth. In other words, it’s a tiny miracle of utterly kick-ass toy engineering. See below for the aforementioned brain piece as well as a color chart of all the releases (the 13th is a mystery!). Stoked!
