photo 1The clues have been out there for quite some time, but we can finally start to show off what’s in store for 2014…the Tomenosuke + CP Chibi Series!

Chibi is a popular Japanese character style, drawing fans of the small and cute. Imagine smaller and even cuter little versions of the toys we all know and love, and know that the Tomenosuke + CP series is taking this idea full throttle. Here is the test sculpt of Brandt Peters‘ Skelve for the series, sculpted by the amazing Yohei Kaneko, in all his squat, bow tied glory.

We don’t have the exact production details yet, but we do know, that they are small / two-part figures and part of a line that will include Circus Posterus favourites, and guest artists. Also, for even more fun – their heads will all be swappable. The first series in the line- up will feature Kathie Olivas, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd, and Brandt Peters.

Check out more of the design below.

All the signs are pointing to VERY SOON because Brandt and Kathie are having a blast monster mashing all the other Circus Posterus x Tomenosuki sofubi with parts from the Heathen Snake Skelve.

This is great because it gives the sofubi version a whole new persona. The sofubi Heathen is modular just like Stingy Jack and Calliope so you can interchange the head and body. Our dynamic duo is truly loving the ability to swap out parts to create new sofubi!

From time to time, the Circus Posterus Instagram feed will sneak in some gems if you pay attention. Right before the weekend was one of those times!

headerWhat appears to be something very obvious, actually. It looks like a Heathen Snake Skelve sofubi is coming from Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus! This coiled cold-blooded skelve will make many fans happy when it debuts. Speaking of, Monsters & Misfits III is in September, could this be the release day?

More soon!

Well happy early holidays to us! This past week we’ve seen a couple of sweet reveals of Kathie Olivas’s second Calliope Jackalope sofubi colorway from Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus. A soft cream and light blue mix, you’ll notice a couple of subtle changes to the little lady this round, with the addition of eye reflections and a rosiness to her nose and lips. ETA is early 2013; official specs and release details to come!

Previously on Calliope Jackalope, An Anatomy, Pt. II: Our little lady is assessed by Obitsu and it’s determined that the figure would require five molds. The wax master is sculpted, the metal molds are forged and the first Calliope test figure is born. Now: we add a splash of color.

With the test figures pulled and green-lighted by KO, it was time to bust out the Pantones and whip up a paint master for the factory to replicate. For her debut Calliope, Kathie chose a soft robin’s egg blue:

At a glance, Calliope’s paint finish seems relatively simple; buuuut … that definitely is not the case. The spray mask alone had to be applied three times more than that of Stingy Jack’s. The figure has a total of eight masks: propeller, face, broken antlers, whites of the eyes, the pupils, lips/cheeks, belly and zipper. The lips and cheeks were the most tedious as they had to be airbrushed by hand to create a realistic ‘rosiness’.

Up next, we take a look at the completed Calliope Jackalope in all her glory. Stay tuned!

Brandt Peters’ Stingy Jack recently received a cracking review from premier Japanese toy culture site, Kaiju Korner! In-depth, charming and deeply insightful, blogger Andy B wholly captured the essence and charm of the figure and the intent of the T+CP initiative. Now sold out at Circus Posterus and Tomenosuke, the response for Stingy from collectors worldwide has been incredible. Click here to find out why!
