Finally the greens for Soda Pop Miniatures “Kenobo Monk of Gomandi” have become available. Kenobo retains the consistent Anime sculpting style seen in earlier releases but is the first male, non humanoid character from the company. The basis of sculpt seems to be a Noh opera monk resplendent with ropes and prayer beads.
The weapon looks very impressive but also a little thick, but I will give the benefit of doubt as this is only the early stage of sculpting. What I do like is the dynamic combat pose, flowing hair and menacing looking snarl.
originally I was not going to paint my Soda Pop collection, but with the figures getting better each month I feel like I owe it to myself to have a little fun and work on these figures. Soda Pop have also previewed a sketch for their next figure, which looks like a child (female) witch. How they intend to sci-fi up a witch I don’t know but I expect it to carry the same design flair of its pre-decessors.
