"What Does the Fox Say?" Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex: Inari 12-inch figure Review II

continued from previous post...

"The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)", is an electronic dance song and viral video by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis. The video was posted on YouTube on September 3, 2013 and has over 174 million views as of October 29. Currently, "The Fox" is number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest-ranked song by a Norwegian artist on the chart since a-ha's number-one song "Take on Me" in 1985.

This toy blog post is not about the song by Ylvis but the timing could not have been any better haha. These foxes are part of the 1/6 scale accessories that came with the recently released Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex: Inari 12-inch Collectible Figure (see my first part review HERE). Foxbox Studio's previous releases of Hermes and Hades do not have any creatures accompanying them but Inari does because taking inspiration from Japanese folklore, Inari is after all a god of foxes, among other things. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. Remember to click on them for bigger and better views :)

The two foxes are almost identical but not quite. One of them is actually baring its teeth in a snarling gesture while the other's mouth is closed and not showing teeth.

They are both cast in a low crouching stance and look aggressive and threatening

The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes and the most geographically spread member of the Carnivora, being distributed across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, Central America and Asia. I think these two are based on the red fox species.

Red foxes are often together in pairs or small groups consisting of families, such as a mated pair and their young, or a male with several females having kinship ties.

It's nice that Foxbox Studio included these foxes with their God Complex: Inari 1/6 scale figure

The timing of its release couldn't have been any better with the current craze over the Fox song haha

NEXT: Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex: Inari 12-inch figure with his Kitsune Rod and these foxes come together
