The sadistic southwestern U.S. meth don from AMC’s Breaking Bad is known within the series for being both a powerful drug distributor and a cool, collected restaurant chain owner. But despite his amicable exterior, Gus displays villainous tendencies — the kingpin personally executes both his enemies and his own associates who have betrayed him. He’s a complex personality and a viewer favorite, having been listen third in Paste magazine’s list of 20 Best Characters of 2011. Needless to say, Mr. Fring is indispensable to the Breaking Bad story.
Fashioned in the likeness of actor Giancarlo Esposito, who earned Emmy nominations for his portrayal of Gus, this figure is rendered in six inches, dressed in a tailored suit and accessorized with removable eyeglasses. Mezco has already brought us Walter White and Jesse Pinkman figures this year, and we’re stoked that they are branching out to include some of the series’s most important and intriguing characters. Gus Fring will be ready to ship out in February, so pre-order him now. And psst — we’ll have the Entertainment Earth exclusive burned-face Gus Fring figurine in March, too!
