    Might Muggs have pulled more than one collector or artist into the designer toy world. If they've done that at least one time, they're doing something good in my book.


    And, yes... they ARE ugly. So ugly I have a few of them ;)

    I personally hate bearbricks. They're so ugly with that long torso!! A good thing though that taste in toys is different, otherwise I'd never got my hands on the ultra limited Coney Mono by Brian Taylor.

    I'm not advocating glowing praise, like i said on my comment i think crisitism helps artists strive harder.

    At the end of the day they're toys, and toys are meant to be fun. If we start scrutinising toys for being "art" or not then aren't we missing the point a little?

    "but maybe we're at a point in this scene where personalities and friendships are giving people a higher standing than they deserve."

    Nothing wrong with having a nice community. Thats what I love about the Toy scene, everyone is so friendly and polite to each other.

    I think we're reaching a point in this scene/genre where we're seeing more of a split between people who want to make/collect small sculptures (and possibly also make a career/reputation on it) and others who view this more like a social hobby. I like both, and I think toy art can be both. The specific point of the critique, though, is really just about so-called art toy shows. Too many "art toy shows" are being thrown together hastily for a variety of reasons. The result is more like a potluck: anybody can bring anything, and the meal is not always cohesive.

    Speaking of meals, I'm off to Thanksgiving. Happy happy!

  • CoMus angel

    It seems this debate is just the use of the word "art" and peoples interpretation of what "art" should be when it comes to "art" toys. It's also apparent people do want a higher quality show to validate what is "high quality art" when it comes to toys.

    I am in the boat that thinks it should all be fun but it seems a few people would like it to be pushed to the next level. The debate focus is on the work displayed but to "raise the bar" it would require lots of work beyond what's on display.

    The type of show and quality of work will always reflect the clientele. How can you have a "serious" art show when people come dressed up in hoodies and over sized shirts? Not that there is anythign wrong with people dressing like that but it diminishes the "serious" perception you are wanting to see from these shows.

    Where it is held is important too; shows in a retail environment will be approached like this, it's not a "serious" environment. (yet still a great setup)

    A selection panel would be required. One that has a high level of education within the arts and design; not just toy fans/people that have been in the game for some time.

    There are many more things I can think of but on a final point; these pieces of "art" are relativity dirt cheap, reflecting the clientele and quality of work expectations once again (and most should be sold for WAY more)

    There is lots of work to raise the bar and most of it would come from educating the clientele and start raising the overall quality of the shows. It is slightly unfair to put blame on the sketchbot show as it clearly wasn't intending to be anything beyond what it was. The use of the word "art" will always give people various interpretations.

    As there is clear demand I do believe there should be higher quality art exhibits for toys but I don't think the sketchbot show should have taken the bullet.

    With that all said, it is never clear what "art" is! I went to an art show that was "very high brow" and there was a piece that cost 15k and it was just a pile of sticks made into a nest with a rolex in the middle of it. It was the only piece like that and I don't get it... but thats "art" for you.

Godot 10K Celebration Variant

    The Rotocasted 10K Toy Celebration!

    In celebration of Rotocasted's upcoming 10,000th toy, we are having a special community giveaway.

    Here's how it works:

    1. Go to your toys and choose a figure you want to give away.
    2. Type [10K toy] in the comments section of the toy's page. [Example: http://rotocasted.com/toy/943... />3. Then, go to the "10K Celebration" page [http://rotocasted.com/toy/10576] and post the link to your 10K-toy. This way we have all the raffle toys in one place.
    4. Add the "10K Celebration" toy page to your wishlist to be eligible to be one of the winners.
    5. Now, keep on adding toys to the library to make it to 10,000!

    In January 2011 (when the postal service is not as busy), we will select as many winners as there are 10K-toys provided and connect both parties. A special prize will go to the person who posts the landmark toy number 10,000! Good luck!

    sergey, I have an arithmetics dilemma: because this 10K Celebration entry is listed as a designer toy and therefore counts as 1 toy, I guess the real 10.000 toy in the database will be number 1001, right?

    What would classify it as a "designer toy"? Action figures are an easy spot but taking out kaiju? Its just Japanese for monster/strange creature.

    I can understand if its a mass produced toy like http://rotocasted.com/library... but what about kaiju toys like http://rotocasted.com/toy/8015/ and http://rotocasted.com/library... />
    I would consider the designer toy classification be something like this: "a designer toy is something (plush/vinyl/resin) that has been produced purely on its own form, not created for an established licensed property (movie/tvseries/comics)" but then where do most of the kubricks/bearbricks stand?

    I wonder how many would be moved to another category? Then how far off it would be from the "real" 10k!

    Edit: Having all the Kaiju in one place would be really neat, I just consider them still designer toys :P
