Next up, we have the arrival of Gorgoloid‘s Fiji Mermaid in glorious soft vinyl! Based on the original sideshow oddity that was bought by an American Sea Captain from Japanese sailors in the early 1800’s, these “mermaids” were created by Asian fishermen who would stitch together taxidermy monkey and fish bodies to resemble the mythical beasts. Coming in at around 3.5″ long, Gorgoloid’s rendition has been slightly altered to fit the new medium, featuring a similar 2-part design with simplified arm and head detailing. Currently up for grabs in a choice of 4 unpainted colorways, the Fiji Mermaid can currently be found residing in the Toy Underground store right here for just $20 plus shipping…
