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!

Tis the Season…

Since it's the time of year to send cards and let folks know that you are thinking of them and appreciate them...I though I would share some of the Holiday greetings I have received with you.

The first is a little animation from the folks at Red Magic...with their flying mini destroyer and CiBoy.  It takes a couple of seconds to load up, so be patient.

The 2nd animation is from a friend of mine and it tells a very special story of how he wanted a Huffy Vortex bike for one Christmas.  So check out Envisionboy's special holiday greeting for a good laugh.

Knowing is Half the Battle…

The winner of the 10 inch tall Dalek Ice Bot is Steve Piper.  Thanks to 3DRetro for the cool prize.  He has already been sent an email and should expect his figure in the near future.  I'd like to thank all of the folks who entered, and please keep checking back in for more chances to win cool prizes.

I'd also like to thank 'Claire' in my new neighborhood for keeping her wireless network open...wherever and whoever you are...thanks!

Thirdly, I would like to remind readers to submit their choices for our 2005 Toy Awards.  Just click this link in the left hand corner and answer the 5 questions.  Easy enough.

Lastly, the next 2 weeks will consist of reviews and awards...chocked full of holiday fun.  You won't want miss them!

Hmm…

You might be just as perplexed as I am when it comes to the photos on the site.  From the look of it, they should be back up on the site by the end of the weekend.  So, please do not fret!

A winner will be chosen for the Dalek Ice Bot figure (thanks to 3DRetro.com) on Saturday.  So if you have not entered the contest...do so!  And include your picks for our 2005 Toy Awards and receive 2 entries in the contest.

Finally...I'll be moving this weekend so I will not have access to email until Monday.  I also won't be able to update the site until Wednesday (unless someone in the neighborhood has an open wireless network).  But when we do get back on track...get ready for reviews galore and our 2005 Toy Awards.

2005 Toy Awards: Reader’s Picks

So it's that time of the year again.  The holidays are upon us and this means it's about time to say goodbye to 2005 and hello to '06.  It also means that it's time for the First Annual Plastic and Plush Toy Awards.  So this is where I must wade back through the past year and choose which toy lines and companies really stood out from the pack. 

I'm going to be asking you, the readers, to also weigh in on some pretty significant topics.  I call them our Reader's Choice Awards.  So please read over the following categories, and send your picks to bcslivka@hotmail.com.  I will then tally up the results and announce them during our Awards "Ceremony".

Here are the categories:

Best Plastic Figure
Best Plush Figure
Best Toy Line
Most Outstanding Toy Company
Toy of the Year

Remember that this is for toys released during the past year.  I'm looking forward to reading your responses!

Free Toys From Me

OK folks...I am moving next month.  This means I need to clean up, pack things neatly in their boxes, etc.  I have come across some extra toys that I would like to make available to you...the readers.  All I am asking from you is to help me by paying for shipping. 

So here is what we have at the moment:

Helpy Horvath Dunny (Red) - 2
Gel 2.0 Horvath Dunny (Green and White) - 2
Mabus Horvath Dunny (Green) - 2
Cook Horvath Dunny (Purple) - 2
Spawn - Lotus Warrior Angel - 1
Spawn - Zombie Spawn - 1
Spawn - Grave Digger - 1

I also have a number of mini Emotes that I will add if you want one.

Here's what you must do:

Post a comment in the comments section of this post and let me know what you want.  Shipping for each figure is $5.  If you want an additional figure, it will be $2 extra (unless it is 2 Dunnys - still $5).  Only 2 figures per person and no one can snag 2 of the Spawn figures. Paypal and shipping to the US only.  I hope this makes sense!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope all of you readers have a great Thanksgiving!  Go eat some turkey or turducken or tofu-turkey or whatever you eat.

I will be taste testing one of the Holiday Packs from Jones Soda.  Mmm...Turkey and Gravy soda!  I'll be posting the 2 taste tests over the next 2 months.

December means the end of the year...which means our 2005 Toy Awards.
