Max Toy Co. Designer Con 2018 Exclusive Glow in the Dark Otta Otter Sofubi Vinyl FigureI saw the sculpt a long time ago, and I was hoping I would some day have a shot at the Max Toy Co. sofubi Glow in the Dark Otta Otter. I assumed it'd be all glow and unpainted, but Mark Nagata did me two better by taking a glow figure and giving it a realistic river otter paint job - this making it so I could just buy one figure and tick all my toy boxes at once. River otter? Painted like a real river otter? With chubby cheeks, and it glows in the dark? If course I wanted one. The 4-inch tall soft vinyl figure comes in a bag with a header card, and is $40. It's expensive, but it's also a glow-in-the-dark otter from the guy who did all the Goosebumps book covers. How could I not buy it? It's actually the reason I had to go to D-Con in Anaheim last year, and then I found out the Glyos crew would also be there and it made for a heck of a nice surprise when I convinced my friend to drive us out there on a short jaunt to Los Angeles.

I love the cart art, and felt bad opening it - just look at him! Adorable. The figure stands on two paws with his arms dangling forward, but you can swivel them around. The tail and neck are also articulated, allowing you to mix up his personality a bit. The sea weasel can't really hold anything thanks to the design, but you can probably hang your keys on a paw.

You can pop the figure apart at each joint, but it's a bear to get them back in place. So don't. Everything swivels nicely and when you use the tail, he can stand without a problem. The sculpted fur looks great, with little whiskers and shiny eyes over a black nose. The mouth is cute with little fat cheeks, and for some reason the neck doesn't quite align with the head piece - you'll see a bit of a shelf back there. I am not a doctor of sofubi, so I assume this is an intentional design choice. I like it.

It looks like I'm probably just going to spend January looking at my favorite things from late 2018. This is definitely a shining gem, a glowing jewel, and a furry little creature I just can't not love. Due to cost I can't assume I'll buy a lot more Sofubi toys, but this one was just perfect. Someone call me when Mr. Nagata gets on doing guinea pigs.
