Aww, this came out beautifully! Back in January we got our first whiff of Chris Ryniak's debut painted Stinky Ginger sofubi from Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus, dubbed 'Pickled Ginger'. At that point, the partnership was still deciding between opaque or transparent vinyl as both versions looked great. Fast-forward to now and we have the verdict: transparent pink vinyl WITH an opaque pink fade on her gnarly noggin. Huzzah! Balance is restored, advocates of either style can collectively rejoice and T+CP delivers yet another cracking sofubi release!
An official drop date is still forthcoming, but I wouldn't be surprised if her cranky butt makes an appearance at Stranger Factory next month for Migration. It's pure speculation, but considering they're already in production at Obitsu, it's a possibility. Like all of T+CP's painted releases, Pickled Ginger will be an edition of 120 pieces halved between Circus Posterus (North American collectors) and Tomenosuke-syoten (International collectors), but for slightly cheaper at $89. Additional release details to come!
