Review by JoshB
FRAN is an alien from Marusan’s TEDEROS line of vinyl robot and monster toys. The designs in TEDEROS are an original Marusan creation, but they have gone to great lengths to provide back story for the characters. Marusan has made comics and videos that tell the story of TEDEROS
Now I am not so sure that this was the right move.
It is not that FRAN is a bad toy, it is just not what I expected. For some reason I thought that the smaller FRAN (the one with legs) docked into the bottom of the saucer. This is not the case; the saucer FRAN and the alien FRAN are two, smaller vinyl pieces.
Don’t get me wrong, the quality on these is top notch – expertly crafted vinyl toys of really cool designs. They are a bit on the small side, with FRAN alien at about 4 inches tall and Flying FRAN about 4.5 inches around. They are supposed to represent the same character in different forms.
Both items are packaged together in a bag with TEDEROS header card.
Perhaps they will grow on me. I put them on the vinyl shelf and the kids seem to have taken a liking to them.
