Expression in vinyl

posted in: Toys & Merch | 0

Japanese toy company Marusan specializes in creating retro-styled toys of characters that never would have been produced for kid’s lines back in the day. So you see a lot of modern horror movies, obscure TV properties and yes, Mexican wrestling royalty lke Dos Caras, produced in a style right out of a kid’s sandbox in 1965.

They have a terrific sense of expression despite the simple sculptures, and I just love the look in Dos’ eyes here – regal, confident, perhaps the reluctant warrior regretting the beating he’s about to lay on The Great Sasuke… who knows.
