Superplastic launched its new web store yesterday. The shop features limited edition toys and apparel designed by world famous artists. Janky, launched via Kickstarter, is slated to begin shipping in December 2018. But, they have some new items available at launch.

Hey...Plastic and Plush needs to generate some sort of cash to survive, right? So that's why I have started a Tee Public Shop to sell some of my wacky designs on various products. It's mostly weird mashups of 1970's, 80's, and 90's pop culture (as you can see from When Sally Met Harry... pictured above). You'll be helping keep the site going with every purchase. Thanks!

Bunnyfish by Kozyndan is a new rendition of the beloved character portrayed in numerous of the artist duo's works since the mid 2000's. Long awaited by many Kozyndan fans, the bunnyfish is finally available in two colorways - blue and teal. The pins are limited to 80 pieces of each colorway.
Susannah Kirtland and Yaniv Brick have taken to Kickstarter to launch their first independent enamel pin production. They chose to produce the cutest ever rendition of their favorite Sci-Fi captain from his days as a cyborg. Called Le Cutest, the hard enamel pin features 1.5-inch tall hard enamel black nickel plating, a deluxe metal clutch, and 7 colors.
The pin is available beginning at the $9.00 funding level. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sunday, April 16th 2017 at 1:02AM ET. There are also stretch goals that unlock other color variants of the pin.
Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
