New Forums!

Since we're trying to bolster our forum activity, we've signed up a number of new and exciting folks to chat on our discussion board.  In addition to Blythe, Rocket World and Friends With You, we have added an Android 8 (Sours and Rustboy), MAD (creator of the popular MAD*L figures), mimobots (everyones favorite flash drive turned designer toy) and Wheaty Wheat Studios (one of the hottest designer toy companies in the biz) forum.  They will all be moderated by folks specific to each artist and/or company.  This is just the beginning...more forums will be coming soon.  We'll also be running a ton of prize giveaways through the board, so now is the time to sign up!

Also, check out the Forum Member of the Month thread for more details on how to achieve that distinction.

A Forum and a Mailing List!!

The New Year has brought added new features to Plastic and Plush! 

We now have a mailing list.  You can subscribe by entering your email address into the field on the right hand side of our homepage.  You will then be kept up to date with all of our contests, reviews and interviews.

In bigger news...we also have a brand spankin' new Discussion Board.  I'm hoping to build it up as a place where we all can go to discuss what's hot and new in the world of vinyl toys.  We'll be adding more discussion areas throughout the next week or so.  Also, it is through EZBoard, so your old Kidrobot usernames and passwords should work.  See you on there!
