Customs from Christmas Present & Past

December 23rd, 2011

With just a few days left until Christmas, here’s some customs from this season and Christmases gone by…

The Three Xmas bears created by Red Mutuca Studios, a collective focused on developing characters in resin and vinyl and customizing platform toys:

Firework disaster” by Igor Ventura – reminding everyone to be safe this holiday season

“Clumsy Elf Bear” by Luihz Unreal – reminding us to be careful when we try to assemble that IKEA furniture we got as a gift

 

“Jack T., the shining bear” by Sergio Mancini – How many Dunnys does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Customs by Bryan Lopez aka B.A.L.D. from California:

“Yellow Snow Monster” – The worst kind of snow! Keep your kids away!

“Avalanche, the Yeti” – I wouldn’t want to run into this dude while snowshoeing through the Arctic tundra

Leecifer completely decked the halls back in 2008:

And if this post left you feeling in the DIY mood, check out our DIY corner or grab Kozik’s Crusty 3″ Dunny Snowman to add to your seasonal toy collection!

What is your favorite winter themed dunny?

Toys in Space(s): Wendy from Merry Happy Studios

December 21st, 2011

We love looking at art toy collections in other people’s spaces! Today we’ll be taking a peek at the work space collection of Wendy from Merry Happy Studios (aka Dee87) in NYC. She is a graphic designer who works on book design during the day and creates her own characters at night. About her collection she says, “As you can see in the pictures, the books have become architecture for my toys. I’m a big be@rbrick collector and a fan of blind boxes!”


I spot a Sonny Angel and a Simpsons KR Figure!

Be@rbricks!

Thanks, Wendy! If you have a toy collection you’d like to share, email me with a request.

ArtUp: Bringing Art to LES

December 20th, 2011

Yesterday, I talked about the MaNY project, and today I wanted to bring your attention to ArtUp, a community art program under FABNYC that has worked in collaboration with MaNY. ArtUp is focusing on bringing public artwork to the Lower East Side, with four art locations, it is quickly gaining speed in the art community. These locales include scaffolding on E. 4th St. between Bowery & Second Ave, the Fab Cafe (just across from the scaffolding), nearby construction containers (mentioned in yesterday’s post) and Artists’ Alley at Extra Place behind the former CBGB’s. Artist’s Alley recently saw the work of Abe Lincoln Jr., Jon Burgerman and Ellis G. for the inaugural public art exhibit, Groundbreak, which will rotate regularly. For more information about ArtUp and the locations of these public art projects, have a look at the video below.

This is definitely a project to watch out for, improving your eyes’ experience in the streets of NYC.

New Release Rundown : Week of December 12th

December 16th, 2011

I can’t believe it’s the middle of December already! Time flies pretty fast in the toy world. I thought you could catch a breather, have a cup of tea and check out some of the new releases we have here at myplasticheart.  Maybe you need to buy some last minute gifts for people on your list… or… maybe you should just go all out and treat yo’self! I mean you probably did just buy a lot of presents for other people, so go on… do something nice for you. Without further ado, here is this week’s RUNDOWN.

  • David Horvath’s Bissy Bear! – That’s right, ladies. Bossy Bear thought he was soooo cool, but here is Bissy Bear and she is ready to put him in his place! You could always buy Bossy Bear too and have a little wedding for them or something. Wait, that might be weird, right? I will take your silence to mean “no”.
  • Tokidoki Plush Kaiju – He might look a bit aggressive, but looks can be deceiving because this 9″ plush is as cuddly as they come.
  • Dragon King OG edition by kaNO – You remember the Dragon King G.O.D. edition from NYCC? Well, kaNO is at it again in this homage to one of his heroes and one of the biggest icons in martial arts history.
  • Emilio Garcia’s Jumping Brain – This DIY brain/frog amalgamation allows for awesome customization… so, hop to it! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist using a bad pun.)
  • Gary Taxali’s Hippy Magic Lunchbox Pillow – I am a huge fan of Taxali’s work, so this pillow really stuck out to me. From a run of 250, printed in non-toxic ink and with a feather filled inside, this pillow is both great to look at and use. If this print isn’t up your alley, check out one of the others from tokidoki, Kozyndan, Sylvia Ji, or Gary Baseman.
  • Yoskay Yamamoto’s Screaming for the Sunrise – This mythical creature has been brought to life for a second time, now in the original colors from Yamamoto’s painting.
  • Jin Baba in Frosted Violett from David Healey – MPH has teamed up with resin mashup artist, David Healey to create exclusive colorways of two of his most popular characters. Check out his Mein character as well. And for more info about Healeymade and these figures read our “5 Questions With…” post with David.
  • Snowy Night Pocket Pork from Shawnimals, Squibbles Ink and myplasticheart – Winter-inspired Pocket Pork! The one above features sleepy eyes with a dark blue body and silver and white ‘snow’ flecks. Check out the other variation, Frosty. Only 60 pieces per style!
