Many of you may remember a while back (posted HERE) that Rotobox was working with Kuso Vinyl to produce their vinyl figure "Celsius", but things were put on hold do to factory specifications and and other set backs, but this amazing toy is still around and posted above is proof. These look like actual vinyl pulls... can this be coming to us soon? Rotobox has sent over some images of the head for this figure. I don't really know where they stand on the production of this toy, but at least they are continuing the process of getting this made! Stay tuned for more info!
