Now that there is a luxury automobile floating around in space, it feels like human beings will be living on a different planet any day now. If they had sent a motor home we could have jump started an entire settlement, but I guess its best we take things slow with space. It’s still a relatively new relationship when you think a out it and moving all of our stuff in at once might look a little clingy.
The Expanse is a show on the SyFy network that follows the exploits of humanity as it has colonized planets all throughout the solar system. Doesn’t seem like anything could go wrong there, right? Uh, yeah things go wrong. Relations between Earth and Mars are tense, because duh a few million miles isn’t enough to stop hard feelings. There’s a missing woman, an ice hauler, and an interstellar investigation that could lead to all out space warfare, which is frankly my favorite kind. And you thought figuring out who’s been eating the snacks you hide in your work desk was high pressure.
These five inch vinyl figures are stylized versions of the show’s main characters and are ready to bring some space justice to your home. And yes, it is totally acceptable to play with them in the bathtub to recreate your favorite scenes. We won’t judge you.
These are available now at www.kidrobot.com.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
