Disturbia/Drew Millward Toy Exclusive

by

Here is a sneak peek of the first ever vinyl designer toy from Disturbia Clothing and Drew Millward called "Popobawa." It is expected to drop later this year through www.disturbia.co.uk.

"Drew Millward is fast becoming one of the hottest names on the low brow art scene and his limited edition posters and t-shirt collaborations with Disturbia Clothing are quick to sell out and highly sort after.Surprisingly a first for both Disturbia and Millward, the move into art toys was seemingly inevitable.
The team are stoked to be working on this project together for the first time and are really happy with the results so far."

More images of the sculpting and tooling are to follow soon.

Christopher Wallace by BOS ONE

by
'Here is my latest toy simply titled, 'Christopher Wallace'. It is a tribute to the greatest rapper of all time, Biggie Smalls (Christopher Wallace was his real name). I made him in the Aardman Animations style which is the company who brought us Wallace and Gromit. I live in Bristol (U.K) which is the home of Aardman and have listened to Biggie since I was a kid so this character mash-up just felt right!'

He stands 7.5 inches tall and is made from sculpey, wood (for the cane) and sponge (for the afro).

Form (Qee) + Function (NES) = MIND BLOWN

by

German designer Hannes Hummel did something you don't see very often.  He made a useful vinyl toy.  Like functional.  IT DOES STUFF.  In this instance, 

a hacked vinyl toy and nintendo mashup. the inside of its head is a gameboy advanced which is controlled by a nes controller. the body is a qee vinyl toy.  the soldered chip features full motion video playback, web & filebrowser, and different game console emulators.

I feel like our community has a pretty good handle on form but function (as is often the case) regularly eludes us.  What do you think?
