Rampage Toys Ugly Unicorn backstory

Jon of Rampage Toys sent in this info on his upcoming debut sofubi figure Ugly Unicorn:

"Pre-sale goes live on Tuesday 8/16 @ 8pm EST (5pm West Coast or Wednesday 8/17 @ 9am Japan Time) in the SHOP.

A little more back-story:  The UGLY UNICORN (アグリー ユニコーン ) is a mysterious creature believed to come from a planet where cake and frosting are the main source of sustenance.  Via some seemingly random circumstances (a wormhole perhaps?) he has come to earth and now seeks the only thing that can keep him alive - CAKE!  Due to his absurdly ridiculous size (measured by scientist to be somewhere around 75' - depending on his food intake at time of measurement), UGLY tends to make a mess of his search for food; destroying things and leaving rubble in his wake. 

Each figure is made in Japan, measures slightly over 5 inches in height and will come bagged and header carded.  I'm releasing the first two colors (unpainted) at the same time.  Red and Yellow!  The color swatches in the attached pics should match the Pantone requests I put in.  I have been told to expect the casts by the end of August.  15 of each blank color-way.  Painted one-offs and small runs will starting being available at SUPERFESTIVAL in Tokyo on September 25th!"
