From 13 to 30 June, the vintage toy museum features UNBOX presents: Godzilla Sofubi Exhibition, featuring a display of more than 500 Godzilla Sofubi toys, making it one of the largest collections of its kind on display in the world. Expect to see rare finds on display, including the DesuGoji series from MARMIT, one of the biggest producers of iconic soft vinyl toys associated with Godzilla. There will even be some exclusive items from a private collection unboxed for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of one of the event sponsors Mr Jeran, who also happens to own one of the largest private Godzilla Sofubi collections in Southeast Asia!
To top it off, the president of MARMIT Kazumitsu Akamatsu will be the special guest of this landmark event. Toy collectors and hobbyists will be able to register for an exclusive meet and greet session with the man himself! Sofubi toys, also known as soft vinyl toys, originated in Japan. They often are produced in limited runs due to their handcrafted nature, being sculpted and painted purely without the use of machinery. This technique leads to unique colourways and intricate details in each toy model that cannot be replicated, making each creation highly sought after in the toy collector market.
As always, with MINT Museum of Toys, a complete experience is any experience that involves collecting limited edition merchandise. For this special UNBOX event, 10 lucky winners of our raffle will receive an opportunity to purchase an event exclusive ‘The Final Meltdown Desugoji’, the iconic 1995 Godzilla Sofubi by MARMIT, in collaboration with Century Fugu and Sixscales.
With this Godzilla Sofubi Exhibition highlighting the unique and classic use of soft vinyl in toymaking, local sofubi manufacturer Century Fugu will also be launching their ‘Desu Ultimatum’ Sofubi collection during this event, in a collaboration with MARMIT. All event exclusives will only be available for this time period, making this June’s UNBOX an event not to be missed by Sofubi fans all over the region!
