Mezco Toyz’ Gustavo Fring collectors figure cinches up his tie for the last time

Buzzed…
OK, I admit to being one of the few who actually enjoyed “The Fly” episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad series. The Poe-like plot of obsession fondly reminded me of a Steve Ditko strip from an early Creepy magazine, with the character being equally hounded by a mosca-terrible.

All Guss-ied Up…
That said, I think anyone would agree that the best visual in the entire series is drug lord and fast food chicken king Gustavo Fring’s emergence from an explosive meeting with Don Hector Salamanca. That series defining moment, as the fastidious Fring straightens his tie one last time, is captured in plastic for posterity by Mezco Toyz’ 3 inch collector figure. Gustavo, as portrayed by actor Giancarlo Esposito, is available now in two flavors, standard and slightly scorched and comes with a mini-bucket of his Pollos Hermanos batter fried chicken.

“Test Shot” Gus is Mezco’s Toy Fair 15 Limited Edition specialty item.


Fring Fling…
Mezco Toyz has cooked up a batch of limited edition Gus’s to commemorate the Toy Association’s 2015 New York International Toy Fair and the company kindly gave us a peek at them as part of a special preview event. These one time preproduction mold quality checks or “test shots” have the character’s head and hands produced in white plastic and it’s blister pack mounted on unprinted card. Although Toy Fair is an industry only event and the limited edition earmarked for select attendees, Mezco is making a few of these extremely rare items available to collectors through the webstore. Your chance to preorder is a click away.
