How random is this huh? A walrus in a sweater and top hat with a gothic hand puppet.

It's the new Upper Playground toy created by Craola, based on its mascot, to be produced by Ningyoushi. Loving it because it's so unlike anything else. 7" limited to 500 pieces - hopefully coming to the UP store in London at a reasonable price sometime in December...the dollar price makes me think it will be around the £40 mark.

This is the first in what's scheduled to be a line of UP toys...I'm hoping that means we'll see a Jeremy Fish and Sam Flores pieces as well.
