The sensation of the moment on Netflix
You have to live in a cave (very deep) not to have heard of The Squid Game up to now. The Netflix series It continues to give conversation topics at the moment and has become so viral that it can now be officially said that it is the most successful title in the history of the streaming platform.
It is difficult to stay with a specific characteristic that has been decisive in the success of the series: possibly it is the set of several qualities such as originality of the format, the attractiveness of a culture so different and unknown to many of us or the dynamics of the plot tests that has made the South Korean production the epicenter of almost all the news.
The visual has also inevitably helped to catch so many looks. The series is full of images and very characteristic elements that have been etched in our retina as the green tracksuit of the participants, the red monkeys with masks of symbols of the game workers, the playground with swings, the dalgona cookie with a drawing of an umbrella or of course, the “Green light, red light” test wrist.
The latter has become almost a symbol of Asian fiction, forming part of all kinds of montages. Now, in addition, you can have it on a small scale at home, thanks to a new official merchandising production.
The green light doll, red light
We could say that the wrist of the first test of The Squid Game and what Baby Yoda was (and is) to The Mandalorian. The image of the girl with two pigtails has become one of the most representative elements of the series and, as such, the internet has been filled with merchandising inspired by her. The problem is that most of the time they are “free” creations, unofficial, whose finish may be far from what we expected.
Luckily, the folks at Fwenclub have gotten their hands on the matter and just announced the production of a doll figure with the support official of the series. The figure -which by the way is inspired by Younghee, an example character from Korean study books- will be made of vinyl, will measure about 35 centimeters high (1/10 scale) and will only be produced in a limited edition of 456 units, thus making reference to the number of participants and its winner, Seong Gi-hun, who wore precisely that number.
Regarding the price, It has been announced that a label of (you guess?) 456 dollars will be hung, which comes to about 393 euros according to the current exchange rate.
There is no release date yet, but the official Fwenclub Instagram account ensures that it will be available soon. Stay tuned.
