Tips for curating an excellent art toy collection without going broke

Jun 02 // Community
Over the past 10 years I've watched the art toy collecting community change. These changes probably would not be apparent to outsiders, but those of us who are deeply entrenched in the community see these trends happening right before our eyes. One of the major changes that has occurred, especially since 2010, is that the active veteran collectors have gotten more focused in their collecting habits. What I mean by that is: after a year or two, a collector will usually stop collecting random blind box figures and start focusing on one type of toy, or a few artists. I first noticed this quite a long time ago with the release of Kathie Olivas' Scavengers. Kathie's fans have been extremely focused for a long time- many of them ONLY collect Kathie's art. They knew what they wanted, and if I couldn't deliver the product, they'd go elsewhere. Simple as that. Multiply that by 500 different artists, each with their own fan base, and you've got a giant group of active collectors who ONLY buy art by specific artists. That means those collectors, many of whom have some disposable income, tend to go straight to the artist to make their purchases. APs and handcrafted items go fast, sold by the artist directly to his or her fans, and often they are signed and include an awesome exclusive item like a sticker or a mini print. It makes a lot of sense to buy direct from the artist. However, not everybody is a seasoned collector, and not all seasoned collectors are that focused. I've been collecting art toys for 10 years, and my own personal collection is really random. I usually collect pieces by artists I know personally, but even then, my habits are random: big, little, production, custom, resin. All over the place. I know some seasoned collectors are the same way. Brand new collectors who are in their first year or two of discovery of art toys tend to collect smaller items like blind boxes and small production vinyl figures, which exposes them to a variety of different artists and aesthetic ideas for a little bit less money. The Dunny by Kidrobot is the archetypal example of this type of product. Let's face it- many of us kicked off our collections with a few blind-boxed Dunnys. The various Kidrobot Dunny Series often pull together many different artists, some of whom have never applied their art toy toys before. Kidrobot does do a good job of showcasing a lot of different artists in their series. It's only been in recent years that fans have been grumbling about seeing the "same old faces" in the Dunny Artist Rosters. (You really can't fault KR for sticking with what works.) And of course, there are many, many other $10/BB series from other companies that introduce collectors to new artists. This act of discovery is one of the best parts about the blind box concept. How to build a hodge-podge collection: Obvious: Searching eBay for "Kidrobot" or "Dunny" will wield many results which are NOT Kidrobot or Dunny…. this is called "keyword spamming" and the intention is to get you to look at a piece by including a non-relevant popular keyword. Kidrobot and Dunny are two of the biggest. While this is irritating to both Kidrobot collectors, and eBay, it is a great way to see a ton of various art toys from different companies! Not just Dunnys. Also, watch Trampt and the Kidrobot forum for pieces being sold by collectors. Sad but true: Surf around on the various art toy shops' websites. This industry is in a state of upheaval, which means as a new collector, you get to take advantage of amazing sales pretty frequently. A lot of us shop owners are slashing prices on items that are 6-12 months old, making semi-recent releases quite affordable. Get on at least 10 of those email lists and I guarantee you'll see a shop running a sale within a week or two. Not so obvious: Barnes & Noble, Urban Outfitters, Toys R Us. Not kidding- there's a series of Godzilla figures put out by Bandai that were designed by Japanese art toy designer Touma, and that's just one random example of the plethora of art toys that are becoming available in big-box retailers. You can now find items by tokidoki, Kidrobot, Toy2R and The Loyal Subjects in Urban Outfitters or Barnes & Noble. The Loyal Subjects just got picked up by Toys R Us as well! You can kick off your art toy collection no matter where you live! Note that the big-box retailers tend to stock smaller, less unique items, so when you feel like going bigger, or going for small-run items, you'll usually have to start looking at art toy shops online. Get on their email lists! Best emails ever. (see "Sad But True" above) How to build a focused collection: Obvious: A focused collection is one made up of more specific pieces. The most effective way of obtaining specific pieces is to get yourself on the email list of the person/company that produces the pieces, that way you're the first to know when a new piece is going to be released. Not every artist has, or uses, an email list, but most of them do. The ones that want to reach their customers directly will always have an email list signup for somewhere on their website. I do this all the time- most of the pieces I get from the "hot" companies never even hit my shop- I sell them privately via my email list, giving my subscribers the first dibs on those pieces. Not so obvious: Engage the other fans of that artist. Get on the social media accounts or forums associated with the artist or company, and just strike up some friendships. A lot of cool deals start with "Hey everyone, I'm new here but I really love the art of XXX. Anyone selling XXX piece?" PROTIP: Ignore the trolls and haters. The internet is full of them. Block and ignore them. They are not worth your time. Humble and kind people will help you out, as long as you are nice! Even better: attend a show featuring that artist, or a convention. Shake hands, be nice. Buy something. The artist will not forget that interaction. You'd be AMAZED at how you can benefit from true kindness- artists like helping out kind people with secret presales, unreleased items, special stuff they normally don't sell. You might even try paying it forward by mailing them fan art or just a piece of your own artwork. There's no one that appreciates artwork like an artist- it's a truly meaningful gift. I hear about a lot of artists exchanging art with each other. You don't have to be a professional artist to create something fun for someone. Warning: do NOT be a stalker. Stalking means bothering the artist more than once a week, or constantly mailing them stuff with no reciprocation. They are all people. Treat them as you'd like to be treated.

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition

Dec 12 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Wooser is almost here again! Season two returns in January so that means a big product push for all things Wooser. Kahotan has posted this Belle Maison oshiruko soup set that features rubber straps of mascot Shirukuma and Wooser. They also have a pair of Wooser talking pens. Wing gave a very cryptic hint for one of their next figures. The hint is just an offset black and white image of a fleur-de-lis. They'll be doing their official reveal at Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] in February. Disney has posted on their Insider blog a look at the creation of their Infinity game figures from sketch to final product. The post talks pretty extensively with Art Director Jeff Bunker and Lead Character Designer Jon Diesta of Avalanche Software and their roles in making the game and figures a reality. Chauskoskis appears to be in a Greasebat kind of mood as he's made two of them. Based on Jeff Lamm's characters the first is Dunny baby Greasebat that he has Jeff's OK to make a few resin castings of. The other is an evil Greasebat that is only one of a kind that he put up for auction.  Check out this amazing Iron Samurai kitbash bade by Ken Lee. Reminds me of one of those samurai from Sucker Punch. I thought that movie was kinda awful, but this is very cool! It's 1/6 scale and a nominee for the 3A Customs and Kitbashes 2013 Awards. Good luck! No, I didn't embed an ad into LinkUP. Well, I mean I did, but not for advertising purposes. Matt Hopkins of Custom Papertoys sent along this really cool commercial he worked on for the SPCA. You think stuff like this is done with CG, but it's really stop motion. Matt says he built the models and much of the stop motion.  Tenacious Toys is offering Nerviswrek's Nibirian Drone resin figures by We Are Not Toys. The terrifying little things are hand painted and sold in set of 12 for US$350. Reflective Boundary did a great gallery for Alter's 1/8 Chitanda Eru from Hyouka. I'm glad this show is still getting some great figures, it gives me hope that a second season could be on the horizon! The AmiAmi blog posted a review for the latest Vocaloid GUMI figure. The Megpoid Whisper version made by Aquamarine is in a cute outfit and the bright colors fit her perfectly. She'll be out in February. VISEone displayed six new 16 inch Qee customs at a charity event in Germany recently. His work was a big hit and he even sold one right at the event with all proceeds going to the charity.  Funko is showing off a new series of Uglydoll x DC Comics vinyl figures. Featured are Ice-Bat as Batman, Wedgehead as Robin, and Babo as Superman. They'll be out on February 11.  Ron English has a special Metallic Purple Heart Skull in his PoPaganda store just in time for Christmas gift giving. They're going for US$150 and limited to only 20.  If you've ever wanted to try your hand at building Gunpla with no idea where to start then check out this handy ebook. Mecha Model Guide for Beginners looks to be a very comprehensive guide judging from its preview were it goes deep into all sorts of terminology and even deciphers the little symbols found in the instructions. There's even modeling history in there which could make it a good read even for advanced modelers. The ever-manly Black Star from Soul Eater has gotten the HQS treatment from Tsume with this fantastic looking statue. He's only limited to 250 printed on a metal serial plate and priced at 259€ (about US$356).  Akiba Hobby has posted a review (in Japanese) of Wave's new Beach Queens Chiho from The Devil is a Part-Timer! She'll be out in 2014. Hopefully if she sells really well they'll make a second season of the anime! Tentacle Armada posted a lengthy review of Pop Culture Shock's Katana statue from Mortal Kombat. They've got an awful lot to say about this enormous figure and it sounds like it isn't without its fair share of problems.  And that brings us to the end of another Tomopop LinkUP. See you next week where we'll have another batch of great things to talk about.

A round-up of recent designer releases and teases

Apr 04 // Brian Szabelski
Our pal Bruscolino has a new resin release called BLOMB. Yes, it's a blobby bomb, done in Bruscolino's usual gooey style, and I think it actually works really, really well for this piece. It's a teeny tiny figure at 5 cm tall, and 25 have been made. Right now, there's also a BLOMB plus T-shirt offer at BeOffTheChart for €21.99. A new figure company named pe-cu-liar from Indonesia has a new figure named Euranth they are debuting. It's a sinister-looking plant-like creature based on pe-cu-liar's own creation, the Glandastern myth, and apparently stands about 5 inches tall. No word on a release date or price yet, but hopefully that info is coming soon.  [via TOYSREVIL] HX Studio is making some new resin toys that are set to release soon, also called HX. The designs, which you see above, have a bit of a futuristic look to them and are around 3-4 inches tall. Follow development of the pieces on the October Toys forum. [via Man-E-Toys] Coolrain Studio is best known for the MINDstyle NBA figures they helped design, but now, they've got their own little 3.5-inch figure coming called Sakun. Featuring designs from Youn Seok Kang, Sakun is set to drop this summer with a number of different looks.  [via TOYSREVIL] For Glyos System fans out there, 1Shot Toys has made a new head sculpt. It's a pug. No, really; it's a pug head for your Glyos figures. And better yet, they're only US$10 each and are available in clear or one of six glow-in-the-dark colors. Go get them from the 1Shot Toys shop if you're interested. [via Man-E-Toys] I thought with Instagram being sold to Facebook, we'd seen the last of JC Rivera and Shinbone Creative's Instagram mascot figures. Nope: Man-E-Toys spotted another teaser showcasing the resin figure (currently named Iggy) that's been painted by SmallAngryMonster. No details yet on when to expect it, though, but I still like the design quite a bit myself. He looks awfully friendly! Also on the teaser front, Mike Die is making his first resin piece. It's a cool looking robot originally birthed from a Dunny body (but really no longer resembling it at all) with some very nice, smooth design elements. Plus, you all know how much I like robots. So naturally, I'm looking forward to it [via Man-E-Toys]   Tenacious Toys' latest Super Series Sundays Releases are still available if you're so inclined. First, there's the second wave of the Pillaging Pop Culture series from Task One, available as individual blind boxes, a three-figure set or even the whole series. You don't have to be a scientist to figure out which three classic characters got released this week. And speaking of the Pillaging Pop Culture series ... Here's the preview for the set being released April 14. Also in the Tenacious Toys shop are Kid Ink Industries' Sumo Trooper. The 3-inch resin figure is blind-boxed in three varieties: the blue resin figure is the main release, but the handpainted and GID variants are the chases. They're US$30 both here and in Kid Ink's shop, which hosts the red variant. Finally, Dr. Death is bringing along a new figure called Death, Doom and Destruction. Such a scary sounding name, no? It has an old-school figure feel to it (and it's 5.5 inches tall), with plans for the figure including a clear dome and a brain suspended in the middle of the dome. Dr. Death has a thread in the October Toys forum dedicated to this figure alone, with all sorts of updates, so keep an eye on that if this catches your attention. [via Man-E-Toys]
