Grumble Toy x Amapro = Wormrah!!!

I've always been a fan of Ainsley's beautiful colored pencil illustrations that serve as mascots for Grumble Toy. How wonderful that they sent one of their designs to be realized in mini figure form by Japanese toy maker Amapro. Sculped by Ruuji Kii of Amapro and painted by Chris of Grumble Toys, this is truly a global collaboration! I have to say that this is one of those toys that you really have to hold in-hand to appreciate. The 3.5" size means he fits in with all the other mini figures on my desk. The sculp and paint application are pretty faithful to the illustrations. I'm definitely looking forward to more of Ainsley's illustrations to come to life!!
