Superplastic Teases A Janky Design by Mark Gmehling

So when we last left the shrouded in secrecy Superplastic story, the new brand from Paul Budnitz and Huck Gee had announced their ‘Janky’ figure along with some graphic elements including the face shape as seen in their logo, and an outline of the figure on their website.  They also cleverly included an Anagram game on their site which features scrambled versions of what we believe are the artists contributing to what is almost certainly a platform toy.

Ok now for what’s new…  A video teaser of a Janky design.  The highlight for us are the rather stylized hands and the street art style accessories.  To us, it looks like the hands are designed to work well with accessories – rather than the ‘sorta’ fit we’ve seen on other platforms.  More?  The folks over at the Marsham Toy Hour FB group have been putting their heads together to unscramble the anagrams and figure out the Janky artists.  A joint contribution from Brad Smith and Benny ‘Teancious Toys’ Kline unscrambled one of the anagrams to get Mark Gmehling.  In looking at some of Mark’s work we’re pretty sure that the teased design is in fact his. His work often features white and gold and is quite similar in style – see sample below.  Oh, if you haven’t already signed up for the Superplastic mailing list for a chance to win one of 100 launch toys, what are you waiting for ?!?!
