Stingy Jack

Toy Break 265: Tomenosuke x Circus Posterus Sofubi!

  • by

Our buddies George and Ayleen(from Toy Break and October Toys), with special guest J*RYU, reviewed our Stingy Jack, Calliope Jackalope and Stinky Ginger sofubi today, and we’re grateful and excited to hear them talk about our little vinyl babies. It’s always great to hear them chat about toys, but our review begins at 52:00.

“I think the character is adorable…I love pumpkin headed toys.” Ayleen says about Stingy Jack.

“Kathie’s toys have been getting progressively closer to her work…she’s an oil painter, and there’s a really textural element…subtle spray, multiple paint applications.” J*RYU says about Calliope Jackalope.

“I can’t wait to punch Chris Ryniak in the face.” J*RYU says, but seriously, Stinky Ginger was well reviewed too.

We’ve sold out of the charming little Calliope Jackalopes, but Stinky Ginger and two Stingy Jack variants are still available in our store!

And, visit October Toys, Toy Break, and J*RYU, because they are all rad folks.

Brandt Peters’ “Old Timey” Stingy Jack, Colorway #3



Get ready for some old time calamity because we are starting the new year off right!

Stingy Jack Sofubi Colorway #2 to Debut @ DCon 2012!

Following the insane success of Brandt Peters’s first sofubi Stingy Jack in August, the pumpkin-headed trickster is back for another spin with the Circus. Hot out of the molds from Obitsu, the second colorway just wrapped up and is slated to debut at DesignerCon 2012!

Inspired by Brandt’s “Toxic Marshmallow” resin custom from Monsters & Misfits II, this next colorway from Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus packs a heck of palette that’s guaranteed to stand-out from the rest of the collection. Just check out the fade on his noggin!

The Toxic Marshmallow colorway is an edition of 120 pieces. Roughly half of the run will be available at the CP booths (#500) during DCon and the rest will then be split between Tomenosuke -syoten and Stranger Factory. These will be sold shortly after the Con (date TBA). Price is $95 per figure. CP board members, stay tuned for a lottery announcement on the forums.

Hang on to your hats, my friends — things are about to get crazy!
