T9G, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden, and Tim Biskup are all nerds...

Masters of vinyl toydom TIM BISKUP and Tokyo's T9G teamed up to blow minds of Japanese collectors with their "T x T Project" of collaborative vinyl toys and new paintings from Mr Biskup that opened last weekend at STITCH GALLERY. Cobbling together new toys mad scientist style using the best parts (giblets included) from their own respective signature artist toys, the dynamic duo gave frenzied onlookers a glimpse of how cool the modern world of vinyl toys could be if places like Kid Robot didn't actually exist. Needless to say, the pair's legion of devoted fanboys and girls lined up for blocks to get a glimpse at the neon colored spectacle and snatch up newly released colorways of the pair's new collaborative production toy "Rangeas" which sold out instantaneously. Also of note was the sneek peek look at the new prototype of T9G's version of Tim Biskup's iconic "Helper" toy set to be released this spring. HAVE A LOOK:
