Tokke is Shoko Nakazawa’s newest sofubi!
Big news in the sofubi world: fan-favorite Shoko Nakazawa has just revealed a brand new sculpt that’s joining her reptilian résumé. Introducing: Tokke! He’s probably the cutest lizardy guy we’ve ever seen.
Aside from some one-offs and special oversized editions of her existing releases, Tokke is Nakazawa’s first all-new, all-original character in quite a few years. Suffice to say, we’re pretty dang excited!
This first variant of Tokke is pepto-pink vinyl, with glass eyes and likely hand-painted painted teeth and tongue. He measures just over 4 inches tall, and probably has one point of articulation in its tail.
It is with our sincere sadness that we announce the cancellation of Pop Toy Show 2021 in order to support the epidemic prevention work in Beijing. PTS committee has already begun working on alternatives to support everyone affected. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. pic.twitter.com/bT7pTzC50K— POP MART (@POPMARTGlobal) August 4, 2021
Though the original plan was to release Tokke at Popmart‘s Pop Toy Show Beijing, the event was cancelled due to CoVID. According to Little Hut’s social media, Pop Toy Show 2021 (and thus Tokke) will be moving online, but there’s no official announcement on that yet.
Other than Pop Toy Show, Tokke “will be arriving at [their] retail partners very soon.” So sit tight and hopefully we’ll have more for you down the line!
