Brutherford Industries x Kean University – Otto at Five Points Festival

31752529_1823288691309288_8198581557150089216_n

Ryan Brutherford’s Industrial Design students at Kean University created Otto as practical experience of the entire process of designing a toy, producing it and bringing it to market. Under his guidance, they conceptualized, sculpted (traditional and digital) and presumably 3d-printed protos which were used to make molds of Otto.    In partnership with the Five Points Festival, his students will make their oh-so-happy pup on demand for customers with the help of Ryan and his nifty rotocast machine. Drop by the Brutherford/Kean University booth [#528] to check out Otto in person.

Josh Divine – Astro Crash at Five Points Festival

download

Whoa.  Josh Divine’s Astro Crash is making the the leap from genius enamel pin (Strangecat Toys) to full-fledged art toy.  Proof that even the mightiest have their down days, the figure seen above in a WIP shot really captures the moment of impact nicely. The dynamic pose looks amazing in 3D: Astro face-planted with legs over his head and his arms splayed flat on the ground. Astro Crash will make his debut at Five Points Festival in Brooklyn (6.2 –6.3), presumably as a prototype. Be sure to drop by the StrangeCat Toys booth [#423] to grade Astro Crash’s landing.

PHASE2 x Unbox Industries – Mixed Parts Abomination Deity Guardian for Five Points Festival

download

First revealed in February, Unbox Industries will debut the Abomination Deity Guardian from NYC graff legend PHASE2 at Five Points Festival via Toy Tokyo’s booth. First out of the chute is this crazy Mixed Parts edition which flaunts Phase 2’s design and sculpt work on this trippy vision.

The Mixed Parts image matches one of two versions of the figure first shown back in February.  Here’s wondering whether the version with the tentacle-style head+ hands is being made as well.
