Introducing MERLION Vinyl Collectible Figures from Great Twins!
I've featured a peek at them on display at a recent expo, and you might have seen them solicited for sales in select (Asia-based) retailers, and for this weekend, I'd like to be able to share both images and info for the new MERLION Sofubi figure!
Produced & Made by Singaporean company "Great Twins" (www.greattwins.com / TAGGED #onTOYSREVIL), the MERLION is currently available in two sizes: an adorable 2" tall, and a majestically larger 8" tall vinyl figure (see images revealed below).
As well keep a look out for the "other" colorways available as "exclusive" editions to be revealed soon (including one from TOYSREVIL ~ *cough*), along with other "surprises" to come very soon... :)
"MERLION" PRESS: "Being a tourism icon, Merlion is one of the most popular and recognisable mascots in Singapore and internationally. Since it's creation in 1964, the now 43 year old half-lion and half-mermaid character had since been manifested on souvenirs and memorabilia dedicated to tourists worldwide.
In 2017, the Merlion had been conceptualised, redesigned in-house and produced by Singapore company "Great Twins", and given a fresh new lease of toylife as a trendy designer collectible for the new millennium, with an emphasis on it's "cool" factor, now levelled up to welcome the pop culture world, with a playful flick of it's mermaid tail!"
"MERLION" PRESS CONTINUED: "Truly a "fusion" character that has become apart of everyday life for both Singaporeans, and is synonymous with our country island worldwide, Merlion will be available in a kaleidoscope of colours and hues, sizes (2 inches tall and 8 inches tall), and as well collaborations with designers and artists to release new cool designs, all with the aim to promote Singapore and the booming industry of designer toys in Asia."
