Kaiyodo: New for 2018
« on: August 09, 2017, 03:36:16 AM »
I stumbled across this image earlier today.
It's from Kaiyodo's large/Sofubi Toybox figure line.
The Shinzen T-rex coming in Spring of 2018.

 It appears to be articulated, so it can probably get into a more natural pose.

Shinzen is THE man, but unless that head can rotate up (so you can position the critter in its normal horizontal position)...I dunno...will need a lot more pics ...

ah man. i love the sculpt and the paint apps, but that pose is just the worst thing to have an otherwise stellar sculpture to be placed in. really got to see more of this guy. i truly hope that if the figure is articulated, it would be able to get a more interesting and/ore natural pose then whats seen here.

Nice looking sculpt, but honestly I'd rather have had a new Capsule Q set.

Same here. I'm in CQ withdrawal. Anyway, how many T rexs can any one person want?

Looks like somthing that walked right out of Carnosaur
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

I like it.

Speaking of T-rex, what's the 2017 verdict? No feathers? Will WS update their model?

The Kaiyodo toy box line is all swivels, so no BOTM like posing here, unfortunately.

I would be a bit sceptic for using the word "Sofubi" -
I think it is just a translation mistake that has been rooted in time, from the word "Soft Vinyl" to Japanese and back ...

Verdict is at least less feathers.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Verdict is unknown. No one even knows what the impressions are.

So glad to see it, I hope it sells very well to make Kaiyodo to consider new prehistoric sets.

I've already placed my order with Brett.

well, I certainly have mixed feelings about this. I think I will add them to my collection; although I would be much more happy if only they made different species' skeletons or at least the same species with different poses. some of them awfully look like remakes of previous versions which released years and years ago, with a base and some updates as a change. I could only hope there would be more prehistoric sets this year. otherwise if Kaiyodo pass 2018 with just this set, I would feel a little bit disappointed after such a long wait. :'(

I have enjoyed the CapsuleQ line so far, but I would have preferred fleshed out animals rather than skellies.

I'd feel a bit fobbed off if this is indeed all we're getting.

When you're a collector of small scale figures, pickings are so slim. Collectors of mainstream toy lines (Safari, Collecta, Papo etc.) are spoiled :P >:D

The real question is did we need yet another set of famous dinosaur skeletons.
Kaiyodo has already done plenty of those already, this set in my opinion is not needed.
Glad that Kaiyodo decided to do more prehistorics, disappointed that they decided to do skeletons.
I hope they'll have more offerings, especially on the obscure department. I personally don't care for this set.
