The Other World was a line of toys by Arco Toys and was released in 1982. The figures were composed of bendable rubber and glow-in-the-dark weapons. Large creatures were used as beasts of burden or as villains.[1] The storyline for the figures pitted the good Terrans against the evil Glowgons. Arco Toys was a Hong Kong-based toy manufacturer owned by Herbert J. Rosenberg and Harold Rosenberg.[2]
