This is awesome. Mark Nagata got together with some USA-based “soap artisans” and created KAIJU SOAP. According to Mark’s message, he’s been contemplating kaiju soap for about for 2+ years.
Call me crazy, but I really think this is a great way to expose those non-toy-collecting folks out there to kaiju. While I’m sure you may want to collect them, I’d encourage you to use them.
Is he calling us dirty??? Kaiju soap “has all natural ingredients and is hand cast with a nice sea breeze scent and a cool iridescent sheen.” They’re available in two colorways for $8.99 each here.
Scary Japanese monsters for bath-time? Why not! More fun soaps here.
Interesting! The nature of these toys is to be collected, whereas the nature of soap is to be used.
Impermanence versus attachment.
Nice design & the packaging is great as well! Hopefully the packaging will encourage people to pop them open & not just set them on a shelf with the rest of the collection.
