Yep...we're joining forces with Eric Nocella Diaz and Argonaut Resins to release the exclusive Jade Tuttz resin figures. We'll be making six of these available - with each one having a slightly unique green color. Among those six will be a special "chase" Tuttz that we'll be unveiling in the coming days. Each one of these will be signed and numbered on the bottom and Eric will sign/number the mini COA's/boxes.
A few months back, we introduced our social networking tool within the site - Mingle. I've finally gotten all of the bugs worked out, so you can upload your photo (which will be your comment photo) and connect with other collectors. And your profile will have its own specific URL, for example: http://www.plasticandplush.com/slovak34
You can access Mingle from the link in this post or the above drop-down menu. Let me know what you think!
Available through our Plastic and Plush Shop, we're giving you the chance at picking up one of our limited number of Mystery Toy Boxes. These are available for $65 plus $15 for shipping anywhere.
Our toy storage space is dwindling, so we're giving you the opportunity to buy one of our Mystery Toy Boxes. Packed in a large flat rate box (so we can get up to 70 pounds in there), we'll load it with plastic and plush toys worth well over the selling price. It's like the ultimate blind box.
Artist Alexander Gwynne has work his papercraft magic and created a great little half-plastic/half-plush bear...all on paper.
His mother was a teddy bear, his father a plastic toy. Now the only thing holding him together are a bucket load of staples and a load of thread.
Now, you can download the Plastic & Plush Bear for free...right here. Download the file, print it out and assemble the bear. Then, send us a photo of your bear with your favorite toy (by March 8th, 2010) and our favorite will win a special prize!
We've added a new little feature here at Plastic and Plush. It's called Mingle. You can go to http://plasticandplush.com/mingle to check out the newly integrated social networking tool.
You'll be able to sign up for an account, meet like-minded collectors and talk about anything. So it's like Facebook or Twitter...just for designer toy fans. Please let me know any feedback you have.
Okay...so here's a little shameless self-promotion. I was quoted for a story entitled "The Vinyl Frontier: Designer toys are here to stay" in the November issue of Geek Monthly magazine. The article is written by Leah Sottile and details the current state of the designer toy world. If you haven't checked out this publication, it's one of my favorite magazines...I guess that makes me a geek.
Follow Plastic and Plush (me...Brian) on Twitter throughout San Diego Comic Con. I'll be updating throughout the day with my thoughts from the Con floor. Oh...and there might be a contest or two thrown in there.
You might have noticed that there have been a few changes with the site over the past few weeks. While some are small (the colors), we've also added a new bigcartel shop (for exclusives). And to celebrate that...we're offering the Plastic and Plush Exclusive Pierce and Nathan Carney (and mini print) for $55 (includes shipping). That's over $20 off the regular price...but it's only running through this Wednesday June 10th at 11:59PM EST.
Also, we're in the process of revamping our reviews. I know a lot of people just want The Facts. So you'll see some changes when we post our next review later this evening! Thanks for reading!
