Here’s a little something on a Japanese newcomer to the soft vinyl world: Blood Guts Toys! Created by Izumo Irezumi of Instinct Tattoo, they’re making toys inspired by old monsters and zombies and their first figure is titled “Shikabane Kaiju”.

Shikabane Kaiju stands 11″ tall and has been created in collaboration with Hirota Saigansho, as far as I’ve understood.

I don’t really know if these will be offered through Medicom Toy after the event sometime, but let’s hope so!
