The Wyger Vinyl Figure by Sam Flores

The Blot is a huge fan of Sam Flores’ art, so I was pretty excited to learn he would be releasing a second all new figure in honor of Upper Playground’s 10th Anniversary, the Wyger (the first figure was Flores’ Dragon Boy). The Wyger gets it's name from an amalgamation of a tiger and Upper Playground's iconic Walrus mascot.

Orange Wyger Vinyl Figure by Sam Flores
Standing nearly 10” tall, the Wyger features two protruding tusks, elegant gradient blends, descriptive tiger stripes and traditional Sam Flores elements, such as the figure’s over sized clutched hands and large Punchinella-esque covered feet. This OG orange Wyger is sure to be the first of many colorways released by Flores and UP.

The Wyger is limited to just 500 pieces and is currently available for pre-sale directly from Upper Playground here for $78.50. This limited edition designer vinyl figure comes packaged in a double sided window box featuring gold foil on the inside which doubles as a reflective mirror giving multiple views of Flores’ Wyger. Collectors can expect the orange Wyger to ship the 3rd week of January 2010.
