MAN-E-NEWS// The “Monster School” sofubi finger puppets from Shikamark…


Sofubi producer Shikamark are proud to introduce their latest sofubi, the “Monster School” finger puppets! Inspired by the silverscreen’s classic monsters as well as Mattel and Bandai’s cult Ma-Ba Zombie toys, the series features a total of 4 figures sculpted with a school-infused theme -“Franken teacher”, plus pupils “Cyclops-kun”, “Medusa-chan” and “Salamander-kun” – each standing at around 3″ tall and featuring a simple uncapped, open base. Making their debut (and quickly selling out!) at Wonderfestival Summer ’15 last weekend, the unpainted black colorway you see above came in at just 2,000yen ($16)… Here’s hoping an overseas release is in the pipeline soon!
