On 9 February 2019, Great Twins launches Merlion Collectible Figure on Kickstarter. Standing 2inch tall, the Merlion Mini-Figure Blind Box “International Designers” Series 1 features 24 renowned and aspiring designers from 17 countries. Each blind box will come with a random colour of a 1inch tall Merlion figurine. In addition, we have added on a few limited editions of the 8inch Merlion Collectible Figure of which one of it is designed by Hong Kong designer, James Fong (a.k.a. Ultraman).

We are in production stage and have launched the campaign on Kickstarter to reach out to more toy lovers out there. We will be using the funds we raise to fine tune the tooling and start mass production. We believe that by backing our campaign on Kickstarter and sharing this good news on your various social media platforms, we will reach our funding goal in no time.

About Merlion


Being a tourism icon, Merlion is one of the most popular and recognisable mascots in Singapore and internationally. Since its creation in 1964, the now 43 year old half-lion and half-mermaid character had since been manifested on souvenirs and memorabilia dedicated to tourists worldwide.


In 2017, the Merlion had been conceptualised, redesigned in-house and produced by Singapore company “Great Twins”, and given a fresh new lease of toylife as a trendy designer collectible for the new millennium, with an emphasis on its “cool” factor, now levelled up to welcome the pop culture world, with a playful flick of its mermaid tail!


Truly a “fusion” character that has become a part of everyday life for both Singaporeans, and is synonymous with our country island worldwide, Merlion will be available in a kaleidoscope of colours and hues, sizes (2 inches tall and 8 inches tall), and as well collaborations with designers and artists to release new cool designs, all with the aim to promote Singapore and the booming industry of designer toys in Asia.
