Jon Paul Kaiser x Toy2R -- Captain Stūrnbrau Deep Blue Sea Edition
Toy2R is about to drop Jon Paul Kaiser’s Deep Blue Sea Captain Stūrnbrau vinyl (5”). The new edition of the Captain features a blue frosted ‘ghostly’ body perhaps evoking the supernatural mysteries of the deep. Limited to 200 pieces, this one is set to drop in June.
A quick note on clear vinyl. I love it, and how. However, lately it seems that mainstream producers are focusing on semi-clear rather than the truly clear or translucent pieces which are normally associated with Japanese production. To the extent this is strictly an aesthetic choice, fine. That said, I do wonder if the semi-clear is a compromise driven by manufacturing limitations involved in making ‘clear’ parts by rotocasting which often results in visible defects including bubbles and in some cases serious internal ‘drips’.
