    I get booged down in collection by all sorts of things - the money I spend, hunting that toy you just can';t get or getting ready for the next release...
    But sometimes I just pass by the cabinet, I pick something up and look at it and think - I have some really beautiful things :)

    Has anyone anywhere ever had a discussion about the obvious (to me) homoerotic element of Coarse toys? Has Mark ever spoken about it in interviews? I brought this up on the 3A boards once and everyone basically told me I was nuts. Maybe most Coarse collectors just don't want to consider it?

  • sergeySafonov angel

    sergeySafonov

    800 2301 1635

    Maybe that's because Coarse is working in the style of the 1930-50's german, soviet and american propaganda and that era is a cliche for homoerotic imagery in the modern culture? :)

    I would say that perhaps there are homoerotic elements, but it seems to me it springs more from Coarse's dealing with masculinity then with homo-eroticism per se.
    but after you said that I did realize there are no female characters in the Coarse roster.

  • hR

    It's not just the lack of female characters though. We could name dozens and dozens of toy companies that don't do female characters, but that doesn't mean their toys have any homoerotic element. Coarse "explores masculinity" in the same way that an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog explores masculinity, only with more penises and spooge (see Sprouting Noop).

    I bring it up only because I'm kind of surprised that Mark Landwher has never talked about it in interviews considering how up front it is in the artwork itself. It seems like whenever he's asked about the themes in his work he always says that his art is about "life and death." Not that I expect him to say that it's about "ripped dudes in pink and teal," but still.

    @MisterQuiche, I know what the word means. I just don’t understand what Jazzydan means by using it in this context. How is this observation a Freudian Slip? I'm assuming he's just trying to call me gay, which may be why there aren't any discussions on this topic. They quickly devolve into offensive jokes.

    Not trying to be offensive or insult you, apologies if it was taken that way.

    I'm just saying that sometimes the mind makes us see what we want to see. Thats the beauty of art.

    I think what is more offensive, is the fact that you think being gay is an insult or offensive? It's OK to be Gay, or to appreciate the male form.

    "That's also what you can read on must collectable toys; "not for children under 3 years. Intended for adult collectors".

    Anythig Metal Gear related is considered to be collectable. Ages 15+. and limited to 2000 plus its hella expensive. Play the game and you'll have a new perspective on GA-KO.

    Honestly...I think it lands right in the middle somewhere. It's a toy with purpose. I'm probably just being bias because I'm a Metal Gear fan...But no one buys it becasue it's a clock, they buy it because it's GA-KO...

    I consider "designer toys" to be modern day porcelain statues that are designed and developed to be about the creation of a toy, with the mentality of being a display piece. Not toys based off of property licenses of TV, movies, cartoons, games or any other medium that came before the continued sales of their properties through the toy medium.

    In regards to whats on the site, I don't think there can ever be 100% rules for what can or can't be uploaded but seeing toys created from very big properties shouldn't be on here.

    Although this functions as a clock, I actually display this with my other Metal Gear toys in a display case without batteries inside the clock. ;)

    I consider this more of a toy than a clock. Since there is the development of a section of this site for toys based off of other IPs, I think we should leave all movie, game, etc based toys on the site until the function to categorize them into this other 'non-designer toy' is implemented. :)

    Hey Leshita,

    it's not about rules :) right now Rotocasted take most anything people upload.
    But we've been having a lot of discussions on what should be on here - basically, it was set up to be a website for designer toys and not commercial toys.
    for the time being it was decided to tag toys there are based on existing characters as "Character Toy". we have a bunch of moderators so I'll change it :)
    At some point the database might be split into designer toys and a separate one for all the other toys.
    But the website is basically a labor of love for Sergey who set it up and it actually costs him money to keep it up, while he makes his own art and toy, so it may be a while, or the idea might be dropped.

    you can keep submitting any toy you want, I was just expressing my opinion! :) it's a great statue
