Welcome to our third weekly round-up of the art toy scene! In our endeavour to search for exclusive content for the site, we regrettably miss a lot of the art toy industry’s biggest stories throughout the week. To combat this, we’ve decided to create a new weekly feature that helps sum up some of the most important developments in the scene…
This week we take a look at the soon to be released Matt Groening Simpsons x Kidrobot collaboration, MAD*L’s Mork artist proofs, J*Ryu’s ‘King of the Boards’ winning custom, and much, much more!

Simpsons x Kidrobot: Matt Groening 6″ vinyl toy
This week saw the reveal of the latest addition to the Simpsons x Kidrobot toy series, in the form of show creator, Matt Groening. Commemorating the show’s 5ooth episode (to be aired in February), the 6″ vinyl figure is set for release on February 9th at all Kidrobot authorised dealers for $50 (£40 UK).
If you were born in the last 35 years, and spent any of that time watching American television, odds are you learned a thing or two from The Simpsons. Some of us remember many more pearls of wisdom from the animated powerhouse THE SIMPSONS than from our own parents… which explains the continued success of donuts!
Created by legendary “Life is Hell” cartoonist Matt Groening, THE SIMPSONS is celebrating its 500th episode in February 2012, and Kidrobot is honoring the father of primetime animation in the only way we know how – making him into a 6-inch vinyl toy! Complete with goatee and glasses, director’s jacket, and pad and pencil accessories, it is the first EVER Simpsons Matt Groening toy. -press
