I Am Plastic: The Designer Toy Explosion

I Am Plastic Paul Budnitz

I was kind of vaguely aware of designer toys, having been dragged through numerous comic shops by friends. However, the “figurines” from popular comics cannot compare to these pricey gems. Divided by designer, I Am Plastic showcases some of the fantastic and bizarre creations from companies across the globe. Created in tiny batches (hundreds at most) and with painstaking detailing, each of these “toys” costs a small fortune. Often based on nothing more than an artists imagination, the designs run from smoking bunnies, unhappy tofu driving cars, teddy bears attacking people, and anthropomorphic beings of all sorts. Creepy, funny and crazy stuff.
