Plastic City announce their latest figure due for unveiling at SDCC, this time with Tristan Eaton, one of the oldest players in the US vinyl scene. It's 2 years since Tris's design company released the iPhone app that this figure is from, so for me personally its a bit of an underwhelming release.
Yeah there's potential there in the figure with it having replacable/switchable parts and will be available in a run of blank figures too but it's not got me that excited unfortunately, maybe i'm just down on the figure cos it feels old, when Tristan's style has developed as a designer and even moreso as an artist this has the feel of an old Kidrobot release. And who knows maybe it could have been... there's a bit of a feeling like this design has been around to more than a few toy companies.
I look forward to seeing the actual figure in the flesh sometime and along with the planned interaction between what i would imagine would have to be multiple releases to make the interchangeable parts worthwhile. Def hoping for better things from Plastic City's other releases!
