MAN-E-NEWS// Science Patrol’s “Patrol Tank” sofubi prototype revealed…


Hot on the heels of his huge online drop last week (check it here if you haven’t already), Japan-based sofubi producer Science Patrol is proud to reveal yet another new figure that’ll be making an appearance in soft vinyl soon, the Patrol Tank (name TBC)! Taking a brief sidestep from the usual youkai and dungeon monsters, the beautifully realised piece has been inspired by both Metal Slug and Dominion Tank Police, featuring a simple chibi-style design that comes in 2 parts and stands at around 3″ tall. Pictured here as a finished wax prototype ahead of molding, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the little tank will make it’s debut in the Science Patrol store at some point over the next couple of months…
