MyPlasticHeart Gets Sweaty

myplasticheart, the popular online urban vinyl and designer toy store announces the acquisition of veteran online designer toy shop Sweatyfrog.com. myplasticheart will leverage the existing capabilities and extensive knowledgebase of Sweatyfrog to form one of the most comprehensive online shops dedicated to the designer toy community.

Both companies were moving towards the same goal of expanding the designer toy influence and it made sense to combine forces in order to reach our common goals,” said Vincent Yu, owner of myplasticheart. “This will provide another strong base for our community to grow upon.”

Passion for the artist and the passion from artists has been the signature for Sweatyfrog’s existence. We’ve always loved what Vince has done and we can’t think of any better means to an end.” – Mike Yi, owner of Sweatyfrog.

Sweatyfrog.com will gradually be integrated within myplasticheart.com and will eventually live within the myplasticheart community.

REVIEW: Undoboy’s Super Bastard Toys

Img_0165

Background

Undoboy’s first venture into the designer toy world is the Super Bastard line of paper toys.  The line was inspired by old ‘mix and match’ books he would peruse through as a youth.  The toys do their best to combine pop culture icons and imaginary characters like Uncle Sam, Saddam Hussein, a clown, Mother Teresa and George W. Bush.

Packaging

The line is blind boxed…so you are essentially getting a paper toy inside of a paper box.  The packaging has drawings of the characters you might find inside, which is helpful when purchasing a blind boxed line.
