hey /toy/, I recently discovered that there is a collector market for sofubi nowadays. Ever since I was a kid I've loved sparkly/transparent/glow in the dark silicone figurines and thought I would try my hand at making some. I am a glassblower by trade and in the future wanted to make molds for a couple of my designs, but the question is, is it worth it? I'd appreciate if you could post any of your favorite figures and point out what makes them valuable and appealing compared to others, I plan on making them as a hobby if I cannot market the idea. Thank you!
>>5702594 So basically you're an unoriginal hack who is trying to make a quick buck like every other dumbfuck with this market who thinks their ocdonutsteel sculpt is worth a gorillion dollars each piece.
Don't bother. The only reason they're expensive is because >Actually talented and well known painters/sculptors are making them Or >Well-known vinyl shit group makes them
>>5702594 Hey op, that's pretty neat that you are thinking of living the dream with making your own toys. I appreciate that you are reaching out to the net for input.
I personally have not seen many well done ball jointed vinyl figures. Even if its just a neck, shoulder or waist, I feel like it adds a lot to the figure. I have no idea if this works well with vinyl at all, but there's my shitty input.
Is there anyway to fix pic related. I have OCD and it's annoying the fuck out of me. I got the piece for free but it's an expensive piece to replace and I can't paint for shit. Any ideas or do I just have to succumb to the torment and wait until I stop noticing it?
>>5697311 The joint is fucked beyond repair. You'll need to heat up the neck piece (with boiling water or a hairdryer) and try to pry out the broken peg without damaging the surrounding area where the peg goes in. Take out the other half of the joint from the head with some tweezers or something.
It's going to need a new joint. You can't buy 'another head' without getting any entirely new figure, the head isn't the thing that's broken.

What if it were an led black light? I'm aware of florescent lights damaging everything, but I want to be sure if like your average light that something like one of the LED black lights will not cause any sort of damage, that or one of these things.
It's through GBJR, the Shocker "successor", and I get the feeling these order pages went up in 2014-2015, before the "lost" the steel molds. Then they found them but the licensors wanted more money and they did a kickstarter then Geoff fled with the money.
>>5703066 Pretty sure they only make statues. Sorry dude. I mean, don't get me wrong, any sort of Dark Souls merch has me excited, but yeah, it woulda been really nice if this were for an Ornstein and Smough articulated 1/6 set.
So my girlfriend has started building Gunpla with me, but she isn't into gundam itself. And there more girly sorta kits out there? She's already built Fumina and Nobel. Not Gundam exclusively, just something she can build
>>5701248 There's some feminine LBX characters. LBX is also generally cheap. If she likes Pokemon there are some simple kits. Other than that maybe model vehicles. And upcoming Figure-Rise Dragonball, plus those static busts for Gundam humans.
