coarse toys Announces Meltdown Alter Ego & The Long Goodbye
Have a taste.
Take your time.
He won't feel a thing.
Our second vinyl art release of 2018 has been a long time in the making. From conception to sculpting to crafting the first editions in our Los Angeles studio, we have spent hundreds of hours preparing a unique treat to cool you off on these hot summer days.
Meltdown is a life-size 16'' [40 cm] vinyl bust. With our usual premium production quality and intricate details, this impressive dessert is available in two recipes. Alter Ego [limited to 299 pieces] will give you a sugar rush with vanilla and butterscotch ice cream topped with vibrant berry fruit syrups, rainbow sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry. The Long Goodbye [limited to 199 pieces] uses pink and purple fruit sorbets, pastel syrups and sprinkles, and a pink cherry to calm you down in a permanent heatwave. Both recipes are served with a spoon to maximize pleasure so you can devour the confection before it melts out of noop’s mouth.
Meltdown captures noop’s euphoria leaving him as temperatures get irreversibly warmer. While a steady flow of cream begins oozing down his chin, the landscape inside him slowly changes shape. noop is powerless as sea levels rise, droughts persist, and the environment as a whole takes a turn for the worse. A spoon is waiting there for you to take a bite of his happiness before it leaves him forever.
Both editions of Meltdown come with with a split-open noop packed with scoops of mouthwatering ice cream, vibrant fruit syrups, trails of cloud-white whipped cream, a dash rainbow sprinkles, one juicy cherry, and an iridescent “c-o-a-r-s-e” spoon firmly secured into the delectable cranial dessert. The sculptures are securely packed inside a color-printed gift box and embedded in black sponge.
Sometimes before we can face reality we need to escape it for a moment. So savor every spoonful. His loss is your reward.
