|General Info. Coarsetoys||
Competition - To-dos
- they hit the toy sphere last year with a publication (I hate my Job*)
that had people wonder. Wonder whether the depicted figures were only digital
renderings or the actual handiwork of one insane sculptor. When the first
physical figures started appearing it was clear - these were for real.
Back then you had to be incredibly lucky to get a hold of one of the very few hand-made pieces of art. And incredibly wealthy, too. The feedback on this first Da Nasty Breed set was overwhelming and had the guys at Coarsetoys think... to find a way to let more people enjoy their figures which meant to find an adequate partner.
Vans instantly recognized the value of this project and agreed to help out in the production of the first (limited) set of figures which are now sporting Vans footwear. And we're not talking about some random representation of a shoe with a Vans logo on it. The figures are wearing the real things... in miniature. With every tiny detail that the shoes have to offer in real life, too.
But that's only one aspect of these figures. The complete pack might knock you out... Each set inlcudes one body with a diverse set of interchangeable parts - extra pants, extra legs, extra head(s), extra shirt, etc. If you want us to start talking about the packaging and promotional materials... we would need to start a new website - Beingcoarsetoys.com.
Coarsetoys are giving away two sets in the context of a design competition that is running parallel on Rift Trooper and our site. Here is a warning, though: if you win one edition you will need the rest, too...
Get working now and good luck!
