#FR2 x T9G -- FXXING Rabbits Sofubi Pre-Order


First shown as an unpainted proto at Beijing Toy Show and then near-final painted protos at Toy Soul last month, the wild FXXING Rabbits sofubi figures  (~14.7") from bad boy photographer #FR2—infamous for his seductive photos of beautiful models—and T9G are now available for pre-order from Japan's Campfire crowd-funding site in the standard white edition and a Campfire exclusive Red+White edition for ¥19,000 (~$174) each. While this pre-order is limited to Japan only, the standard edition will soon be available in regular retail channels.  We're also expecting to see the orange+black edition which was previewed at Toy Soul.

The striking figures deliver T9G's feral interpretation of #FR2's bunny logo/alter ego and feature several signature T9G elements including the use of doll eyes and the removable plush head.  As one might expect, the figures ship with realistic replica accessories of #FR2's Leica cameras right down to the branded camera straps.  FXXING Rabbits checks all the boxes for collectors looking for T9G's over-the-top designs where the feral and the unusual override the kawaii trend.
