How to know if something (trading figs) is squishy or not?How to know if something (trading figs) is squishy or not?

"Touch it"
"Nah..."

Ok, so what I mean is trading figures from Re-ment, Sanrio, San-x, etc, anyway all those small and (usually, though it's relative) cute things. For example, the newest pokemon in database:
ITEM #634490
ITEM #634489

Sometimes in databse, I stumbled upon things whose materials was soft plastic/vinyl, like this Bananya from Funko:
ITEM #613382
And I naively thought "hmm... soft... then maybe it's squishy?". Yet when I confirm it with others (you can read my comment on the item page), eee it's not. Apparently it just can bend, a little.

So, my question is:
For pre-order product, when there's no clear image of what you can do with it, how do you know whether it's squishy or not? Is there any keyword whatsoever (If it's only kata/hiragana, I can read)? Or is there any specific line (line as in Nendoroid, P.O.P, etc) for each company or what? Or maybe particular material?

*Btw I just realize this, but, gudetama in icon isn't giving anybody middle finger, it's picking its nose, which is very... very Gudetama...

setsunyan (Vor 7 Monaten) #27419979Usually the name in Japanese will hint if it's squishy. They can use different words though, the pokemon figures you linked for example are listed as "purupuru" which can mean soft/squishy so I would assume they are. Another example would be Re-ment squishy toys that I've seen listed as mocchiri which can refer to something that's stretchy. Basically putting the name of the figure line into a translator would be your best bet /: sorry if it's not really helpful

Purupuru and mocchiri, noted. No, You're really helpful and actually that's what I wanna know, thanks you very much! :)

ugendo (Vor 7 Monaten) #27371057Most squishies I've seen are made of polyurethane foam or ポリウレタンフォーム ENTRY #69388. Honestly most of the time I would just assume it's not squishy unless clearly specified.

OK, thank you very much
