Our final category for the 2012 Plastic and Plush Awards is the Plastic Toy Of The Year. Since resin has become just as popular as rotocast vinyl, they're all included in here (ABS, PVC, and any other kind of plastic as well). Whittling down to five pieces here was the most difficult of any category...
5. 1000 Teddies (Crazy Label - Philipp Jordan)
Sculpted to almost feel like a fabric teddy bear (maybe burlap over the sculpt?), Crazy Label converted Philipp's 1000 Teddies artwork into a single vinyl teddy sculpt. It's a great representation of Mr. Jordan's art show (all 1000 teddies) in vinyl form.
4. Calliope Jackalope (Tomenosuke+Circus Posterus - Kathie Olivas)
The T+CP label was introduced in 2012 and really picked up a head of steam throughout the year. With the quality of Japan-made vinyl and amazing paint-work, the release of the Calliope Jackalope helped to bring Kathie Olivas' artwork to life like we've never seen it before.
