|In "I am plastic too" I have a couple of pages of customs in this book. I m super excited to be apart of it. |
While I Am Plastic, Kidrobot’s first collected book about designer vinyl took some heat from some collectors it was noteworthy in part because of the broad scope of toys selected – not just western but also a nice mix of eastern figures. So we’ve been curious about the anticipated follow-up titled – I Am Plastic, Too. Kidrobot front man Paul Budnitz recently revealed this image from the book (cover? or just promo?) featuring a Thomas Han 8” Painkiller Dunny.
The book is subtitled – “the next generation of designer toys” which we assume means it features toys since the publication of the first book (late ‘06). This one is chock full of photos/illustrations – 1000 or so. As for a shipping date for this one? Budnitz leaves it as ‘fall’ while the publisher Abrams indicates October 1st, 2010. The 368 page hardcover volume is available for pre-order now and has a suggested retail of $45 (Amazon is cheaper, of course).
