Kaiyodo - New for 2018
« on: August 26, 2017, 10:32:48 PM »
The first Sofubi Toy Box figures are announced for 2018:

1. Red-claw crab (Chiromantes haematocheir), January 2018



2. Two for the 'Spring', an emperor scorpion (this appears to be an unpainted prototype) and Tyrannosaurus rex.

they are gorgeous and for someone who used to keep a lot of Pandinus and Heterometrus spp. that emperor scropion fig is especially attractive.

I wonder... has Kaiyodo stopped making CapsuleQ animal sets. Seems a poor year, especially arthropodwise.

Most of the 2017 CQ sets have not been animals, no. Not sure if it's just ebb and flow or what.

I however am super excited for that crab

 ^ Serval and Shoebill (which seems to be bigger than previous ones) are must-haves for me :) . Thanks for the info!

im not really sure if that hand-figure contrast is accurate but are these figures the same scale as the major brands or a bit smaller?

 This set has just been released. Must have the Tree Frog and the two white Axolotl figures :D !


Thanks Helge, but this should go under Ikamon-Nature Techni Colour, not Kaiyodo  ;)

Oops! Sorry for that. Maybe it was too late in the evening.
Maybe you could delete the quoted picture as well.

I guess they are smaller than the major companies' figures, but bigger than the usual Kaiyodo size.

The green capsule (of the capsule Q museum series) will be the best reference  for the one piece animals.
