Street Trash (Inspired Minifigures)
Thanks for reading this blog. For those of us in the toymaker community sat uncomfortably between KidRobot rip-offs and politically ironic 3.75s it's often an incestuous, nerdy, lonesome and under-exposed world where the wrong things go right and the right things go wrong.
Anyway, have you seen Street Trash? Yeah?! Then this will make perfect sense.
A few years ago, when VHS became cheap thanks to DVD, my housemate and I built a good collection of cult horror VHS such as Street Trash, Braindead, and Savage Streets. Weird how rare Troma VHS always seemed to be here in the UK.
Anyway, Street Trash naturally appealed to everything I like. Really witty, well made, good characters, and utterly disgusting. So I've made this rubber MIMP inspired mini as tribute. Available right here: http://bigmantoys.bigcartel.com/product/street-trash-inspired-toilet-guy
Additionally, I'm working my knackers off on the quiet with an onslaught of 5.5 projects that i've got reason to be excited about. I love making my minis and I personally thought Burning Chop is the toy the world needed, but there's something so satisfying about making a figure then being able to pose it next to a MOTU and have it look in place.
