Broken Heart Robot Review
Genshi:Toy founded by Craig Anthony Perkins is a newcomer to the designer vinyl toy scene. Broken Heart Robot is Genshi:Toy’s first vinyl toy. I’m sure you have read the story behind this sad robot, if not, just check out the website to learn more. Broken Heart Robot comes in four colorways, Standard Blue, Glow-in-the-Dark, SDCC Exclusive Clear and finally a Blank edition. Let's first talk about the design. This toy is simply sketched with a pained facial expression and what else???….a broken heart on his chest. The toy’s simplicity and straight forward feel makes up the lack of extravagant details. The shape takes on a more interesting turn. The twisted head with a peculiar flat top is slightly bent forward as if trying to conceal possible tears. The pudgy body finishes up the shape. Despite a slight flaw in the uneven legs, the 6" tall Broken Heart Robot stands quite firmly. With four different colorways, many people are bound to have a favorite. Mine? The Blank edition which has lots of creative potential. The Standard and GID Broken Heart Robots are available in stores and retails at $39.95. The Blank Edition is only available via Broken Heart Robot's website and retails for $49.95. Stay on the look out for Craig's next toy, Kricky the Alien Frog.
