It’s been awhile since we’ve seen anything on the toy front from French artist Rolito. So we were excited to learn that he’s working on a new sofubi figure, ‘The Boy’ (unpainted test shot) to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Rolitoboy.  Remember those awesome figures produced by Toy2R, way back when?

While there’s not too much info to go on yet, it appears that ‘The Boy’ (in development since at least June 2013), is a new character rather than an interpretation of  his signature character – perhaps inspired by his son who recently turned a year old?  Instead of his classic birds, Rolito has given the boy little gumdrop like companions, two sitting atop the head and at least one as an accessory.  Back in 2013, Rolito mentioned a ‘playset’ so perhaps there will be additional figures as well.  Look for this to drop sometime in June – we’ll be sure to stay on this.
