‘Bake-Kujira: The Phantom Whale’ by Candie Bolton and Toy Art Gallery Coming in 2016!

Candie Bolton’s latest sofubi design is a brilliant take of a mythical Japanese ghost, named “Bake-Kujira The Phantom Wale.” According to the legend, a Bake-kujira is primarily a skeletal ghost of a whale that has been hunted and killed by humans. Some stories have also said that the unrested spirit was accompanied by unusual hosts of fish and birds. The sight of a Bake-kujira in the sea brings a curse to the person that spotted the spirit in the form of famine, plague, fires, and other kinds of harm.

In this design, Candie has made the folklore the star by featuring what seems to be the ghost of a narwhale, while including other physical elements of the mythology in between. Bake-Kujira was sculpted by macsorro and will be produced into a sofubi by Toy Art Gallery. The sofubi will be 11 inches tall and will be released sometime in the early half 2016.

Provided in the post are images of the prototype, as well as the display shown in DCON 2015. The Rave Corner will provide more updates as soon as they are available!

RAMPAGE TOYS is bringing back The Disarticulators' famous Oozeball sofubi for another great variation. This time Oozeball will be predominantly yellow and referred as "CHEEZY MOON." Collectors, who haven't owned this collectible item, may want to obtain this figure as RAMPAGE TOYS stated that Oozeball will be retired after this release.

RAMPAGE TOYS wrote the following post in Instagram:

"jmrampageComing soon to the RAMPAGE webshop - 'CHEEZY MOON' squeeky squishy Oozeballs! This will be an open pre-order for this FINAL squeeky blank version of the @trutek Oozeball. We will be doing paint on some yellow ones in the future, and on non-squishy figures as well, but this is basically the final hurrah for this figure that has become a proven neo-classic since its release last year. From here on, @trutek will be moving in the direction of his @goryhole series.

Once I get the pre-order details sorted and loaded into the RAMPAGE webstore, I will post here. The order will be open through the New Year's festivities for all your post holiday shipping pleasure.
