The Wyger is on the Prowl, and I'm a Little Nervous

Upper Playground, The Loyal Subjects and Sam Flores have come together to re-release the Wyger. Yup, I said re-release. This little guy has been around before. Maybe I missed the boat on the Wyger the first time around, but I promise you it will never happen again.

Being released again with a new blue color, the Upper Playground site says that the Blue Wyger incorporates Upper Playground’s iconic Walrus imagery to commemorate Upper Playground’s 10-year anniversary. Very nice, but I just can't justify the Goliath man hands and downtrodden face on the 8" tall figure. Too great. Stats for Hybrid Animal Figurines Trending: Older & Chilly
