I love vinyl toys. If I could afford to buy them, I would. Sadly, I drink too much beer and thus my money is limited (maybe I should stop drinking and just collect toys), but some of the designs are incredible. The thrill of a blind-packed collectible is far more than any adult can take. Right? Just me? Oh, Christ.
But anyway, I've been meaning to create at least one for ages, but never had the means or the knowledge to do so. That said, I'm going to learn very soon. New Year resolution and all that... In the meantime, I have that Timebadger design at Shouldbee as mentioned last month (still up for voting, incidentally! VOTE!) and there are some additional designs related to Timebadger, his companion Convenient Steven and his arch-nemesis Foxton J Culworthy. If the Shouldbee campaign is successful, I'll submit these new characters. The construction would be beyond me for a while even if I was to learn the techniques involved right now, so I hope Shouldbee works out.
In the meantime, I'm going to get working on simpler designs for my own amusement (when I have any spare time...)
I would also recommend you check out these guys for some excellent toy designs and news:
P.S. Thanks to Chris Howker for the metaphorical kick up the arse and for creating awesome stuff.
