I hope that Paul Budnitz of Superplastic will be at Five Points in June, because I need to learn the guy's secret. Not only did he strike gold in the art toy world as the founder of Kidrobot, but he has returned to the exact same spot and found a giant oil reserve. The Superplastic Kickstarter went up today in an effort to fund their new Janky blind box series and assorted other figures and it has already blown away its goal. There's still 30 days left to go and it's already a guarantee that these figures will be produced and will be in the hands of collectors around the world. It certainly takes a bit of the stress out of the whole process for people that backed it. Now after you've selected the tier that your comfortable pledging all you have to do is sit back and wait for your figures to arrive in the mail. Or if you're forgetful like I am you will be pleasantly surprised as you return home from a hard day's work and find a random box on your porch filled with things you forgot you ordered. To me it ups the excitement level, or at least I tell my wife that in an attempt to stop her from making fun of me.
There's still an entire month for you to get in on these limited edition figures, featuring art from Huck Gee, Junko Mizuno, Dalek, and many more. Just visit this link here, select a price range that feels like it matches your baller status, and be a part of the birth of an entirely new toy company.
