Robots are Vinyl




This is an interesting site. Check out Kid Robot http://kidrobot.com/. Vinyl toys are extremely popular these days. I guess it's an extension from the Todd McFarlane (creator of spawn) figures that were brought out in the late nineties and earlier this century. Most of McFarlane's work is hand painted as is the newer vinyl toys.

These toys are designed to look exactly like the 2D digital form that that were created from. I think it's pretty cool, especially the level of detail in the models. An Aussie designer Nathan Jurevicius created an online comic scary girl which has recently been transformed into the vinyl world too. www.scarygirl.com These toys/art pieces are something that has evolved purely from the digital age.
