Until now… 

If you’ve been wondering when you might be able to get your hands on the East Meet West collectibles, the answer is this weekend if you’re in or around Los Angeles. The Popaganda Pop-Up Shop on Saturday and Sunday (5.20 – 5.21) from Noon to 3 PM at RCNSTRCT Studio in Hollywood brings the travelling exhibit’s product experience stateside for the very first time.

 unnamed

myplasticheart will be exhibiting at the inaugural Five Points Festival in The Yard [booth #139], a collective booth also featuring Boundless Brooklyn, kaNO, and Robots Will Kill. While MPH’s press release coyly mentions a ‘couple of releases’, don’t be fooled.  They are loaded with a dizzying number of exclusives.  From Vinyl to Resin to Plush to Enamel, mph’s booth is loaded with the goods.  We’re going to mention select items in each category, but be sure to hit the jump for a look at each drop.

Let’s start with vinyl (maybe just a bit biased here).  First up are the special-edition Pocket Pork Dumpling Choice Cuts (12.00) from Shawnimals and produced by MPH + Squibbles Ink. What about sofubi?  You bet.  MPH will drop the exclusive MITT “Ice Cane” ($55) from 6 28—the bumper car mutt is one of the new ‘IT’ toys.  They will also have the Raspberry and Blueberry Negora ($35) from Konatsu and Sakura Sora ($90) by Ok Luna.

Moving right along to the Resin drops.  mph will drop Brent Nolasco’s Blessed Blessed Oblivion—an ominous moth--in a debut translucent blue edition at $85.  Looking for the latest and greatest BoxCat?  Say hello to HoneyCat from Rato Kim ($120).  Satyrs?  Seulgie has outdone herself with six unique Satyr Rorys—each featuring deluxe rainbow deco and fancy details—available for $300 each.  Finally, POPProlific has created three exclusive resin action figures—Haunted Armor of Crom, Cyclopean Witch King and Dealer of Dooms—available for $85 each.

In the home stretch now… mph will also release PlushPLAY’s amazingly adorable Spring Rabbit Racers—think zoomy plush soft figures—for $120 each.  On the customs front, Andrea Kang has created three 5” Dunny customs—Rascal, Melon and King--inspired by her 3” DTA Dunny designs for $250 each.  Love Pins? mph has you covered with a trio of Hypepins from kaNO in new colorways ($10 each, $25 for all 3) as well as a Glowing Ghost Girl Pin ($10) from Matt Siren blending a shiny silver finish with a GID design. 

Ok, now hit the jump to see all the goodness.

Sergey Safonov – Preview of ‘Birds of Moscow’ (5.18)

afisha-sketch

Over the past  several months, Sergey Safonov has been posting tantalizing photos of his hand-crafted wood bird figures, some of which include blown glass elements.  We’ve been admiring them from afar and wondering how/when they would be shown/released.  Turns out Sergey will be showing them at his Birds of Moscow exhibition which opens in Moscow this Thursday (5.18).

The birds have a refined, old world feel, sophisticated yet down to earth.  They sport stylish hats and seem to have a sense of purpose—perhaps that’s due in part to their pointed beaks.  At any rate, the new collection is impressive. Hit the jump for a preview of select pieces.

After the show, we believe the remaining pieces will be available online.  As part of his intention to have the show travel around the globe, he’ll be showing two of the pieces for Toymakers of Planet Earth in June at Circus Posterous.

Those little Birds of Moscow are always in a hurry. Wherever they fly, they take this city with them, sometimes cantankerously shrieking, other times softly tweeting. Their tiny beaks are snapping, the golden caps, floating. Birdies can’t stand one another, yet their chirping hearts beat in unison. White flickers, ooze and concrete, sweet marble curls… The little birds of Moscow softly and elegantly walk among us. They look only upwards and crumble this city under their feet. Ash and coal. Birds of Moscow are watchfully looking from everywhere, waiting for the continuation of old stories. And lonely laughter in the silence.
