Mike Burnett’s Neighborwood @ NYCC

Mike Burnett makes amazing hand-crafted and painted wood toys.  In a fit of creative insanity, he created a wood DIY figure just for the Neighborwood show that went down in Portland  back in December ’06.  Thanks to Bigshot Toyworks, artists all over will  now get a chance to paint on  a real wood DIY figure with the imminent  release of the production Neighborwood figures.

Neighborwood comes in a ready to paint and hang wood box with a target retail price of somewhere between $40 – $45.  The first run is 500 figures but if they get snatched up, Bigshot Toyworks will create a new supply to field a  global army of custom wood figures.  Visit Bigshot Toyworks at NYCC (4.18 – 4.20) in booth #949 to check out Neighborwood and their other sweet toys.  No promises, but it sounds like a small supply of Neighborwood figures might be avaliable for purchase at the show.
