This ongoing show at G1988 Los Angeles looks absolutely stunning with multiple works on canvas, found objects, paper and a huge Peacemaker sculpt. But what really caught my eye - given the price tags - were a couple of handpainted toys based on Brandt's Slap Happy sculpt a toy i'd always liked but never really loved. Until now.

For around $500 you can get one of these beauties that to me perfectly captures Brandt's style....of course that's down to the handpaint finish but I'm sorely tempted to purchase one!
