Plastic Villains (The Usual Suspects)

Newer Older

The 80s gave us lots of a great toys. Heroes were good, righteous, and sadly, a bit bland; villains, on the other hand, were cunning, charismatic, and often comical. There were a number of plastic villains we all had to have—villains who schemed to invade our sister's tea parties, raid the cookie jar and terrorize the family cat.

The Plastic Villains t-shirt was available on Ript Apparel on July 31, but you can still pick it up at RedBubble. As well, some slick prints of the design can be purchased at Society6.


Builder's notes - The challenge here was to build minland-style representations of the actual 80s toys, at the correct scale. I'm quite happy with the way they turned out, given that this was all done in a single morning.
