What’s New Ep. 3: DeKevin Takes a Look at Five Points Festival

The first-ever Five Points Festival brought the art toy-focused convention experience to NYC a few weekends ago (5.20-5.21).  Year 1 was an excellent start with great artist and brand booths as well as plenty of serious collectors and fans.  If you didn’t make it out to the show, What’s New Ep. 3 features DeKevin’s first-hand look at the sights and sounds of Five Point Festival – too bad you can’t taste the brew from the beer garden…

 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.
