Upper Playground, The Loyal Subjects and Sam Flores have come together once again to release another edition of Sam Flores’ Wyger, the Blue Wyger. Following in the footsteps of the Orange Wyger, the Blue Wyger incorporates Upper Playground’s iconic Walrus imagery into the figure to commemorate Upper Playground’s 10-year anniversary and the anniversary of its walrus mascot.
The Wyger, which is a combination of a Walrus and Tiger, is adorned with classic Sam Flores attributes; including the oversized hands and feet, blank eyes, and melancholic figure posed somewhat sheepishly. The Wyger costume has two tusks extruding from the top lip and boasts great stripe and gradient blend details.
The 8″ Blue Wyger is an edition of 250 and is packaged in a unique double-sided window box adorned with spot UV details and a gold foil backing card. It’s retailing for $85.00 and will be available exclusively at Upper Playground’s online store.
