Urban Toys

Urban Toys
Called "Urban Vinyl Toys", these are highly collectable design concepts created by artists all over the world. 
The Urban Toy scene was born in 1997 when designer Michael Lau showed up at a Hong Kong toy show with a handful of GI-Joes he'd customized into hip-hop street fashion figures. Things exploded from there, and artists from Hong Kong and Japan began making their own limited toys.
