Chris Ryniak’s Stinky Ginger sofubi made a heck of an entrance at this year’s DesignerCon as a low-run, unpainted edition dubbed “Raw”. Retailing for 65 bucks per and run of just 65 pieces, most of the little Stinkers flew off the table before noon (did you see the photos?!), along with Kathie’s Calliope Jackalope and Brandt’s Toxic Marshmallow Stingy Jack.
Stinky is the third release from the Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus line of sofubi. If the name and header card weren’t any indication, she reeks something fierce with an equally-snarky attitude to match.
Chris’s original model stands on the left, accompanied by Yohei Kaneko’s modified version on the right. The figure was resized in scale with Stingy Jack and Calliope and slight adjustments were made to her features.
The final prototype.
Next, it was time to get waxed. Unlike Stingy and Calliope’s five molds, Chris’s stoutly Stinky only needed three: torso, feet and hands.
Hot outta the mold, the completed Stinky Ginger figure cast in sofubi. Unpainted, 6.5 inches in height with three points of articulation. Circus Posterus will be releasing the remainder of their allotment soon; keep an eye on the CP forums for details!
