Culture in vinyl

The words “vinyl culture” typically produce images of seventies furniture or overdressed club kids. A few designers have been redefining the term while pushing the envelope in the medium of action figures. In particular, Eric So and Michael Lau have been rolling out stylized icons for the subculturally aware.

At $100 a pop, only the jet set and Hong Kong toy-obessed crowds can afford them, but they’re fun to look at. Mmmm… vinyl toys.

  1. A good source of info on Michael Lau and others is Giant Robot magazine. Nary an issue goes by without some newsbit about Lau’s toys.
