PurePlastic has announced a contest where people can submit ideas for a future plushie set! The first part (out of four) asks you to suggest a pose for the plushies, based on either a picture from Ginga or a photo of a real-life dog.
Oooh, what a fun idea! I wish I could participate, but I like to stay away from Facebook, I haven't touched the account I made since 2012, and I don't intent to get involved again. Would they also be accepting answers from their Instagram, or other social media? If not, I'd love to see the concepts that others have to show, there are a lot of creative people in the fandom!

Whatever happens I'd love to see plushies of the Kai dogs next, and Hakuro.

I second you on that - I wonder which designs they would use for the Kais? So far, we've only seen one character from GNG, presumably due to copyright. Hakuro would be amazing, especially with a new pose! Like laughter, or a big smile.

I'd love to see Smith, as his character design in GDW has him missing a leg, which would in a way be changing his pose. (Making him stand upright would be a hassle though, unless he's sitting maybe)

Kai bros plushies would be nice, but I worry about the stripes.
The air brushing on the PP plushies is notorious for running and fading, so it wouldn't take long for kai plushie to look pretty bad.

The posing can be interesting though. Or if they made like pillow pets versions.

I would hope they would use already brindle-like texture then draw stripes
Wait for me; Terrex, Baghéera, Nokorde, Smulan, when its my time I come

Perhaps they could use fabric that's already got the stripes on it? Like they do with tiger plushies, except with red, brown and blue colors instead of orange. Pillow pets do sound cute and cuddly though - I haven't had one since I was a child!

I'm kind of considering making a burner account just for this. It really looks interesting, and I'd love to see more updates of others' designs and suggestions
