New this week:
Superplastic is Fantastic
With hardly ANY warning on Wednesday evening, Superplastic announced via newsletter and Twitter that the long-awaited 2D figure would be coming out the next day, Thursday. Such a surprise!
At 11 am EST the next day, the toy dropped, looking better than what we could have imagined!
The most incredible detail of all, in my humble opinion, is that the EYES LIGHT UP! Apparently, they turn on via a switch under 2D’s removable hair…
Images of the actual toy look incredible. I cannot wait to receive mine!
I should mention that SUPERPLASTIC is currently doing a giveaway on Instagram for this figure, ending tomorrow, November 18. Enter now!
Tag a friend and make sure you’re both following @superplastic, @janky & @guggimon for each of you to win an ultra-limited Superplastic X Gorillaz 2D vinyl art toy! Winners selected randomly on Monday!
Demon Days Me, Please
This has been a good week for collectors items! Vinyl Me, Please is back with the rare red exclusive pressing of Demon Days! It is being sold on their website for $40 USD.
This exclusive includes two translucent red vinyl LPs. Inside is an exclusive Gorillaz character sticker pack and a 12×12 art print by Ariel Roman. Inside, it looks like this:
And here’s what the art print is like, along with a poem AND a cocktail recipe:
Jacob Polar, known for working on a really cool fan video for 5/4, has recruited the help of some well-known Gorillaz fan artists. We’ve been able to see some previews of the work this week:
Furthermore, Gorillaz fan-artist Glow seems to be working on their own animated music video for Charger! See here:
