I ran into a new company called Monsta Funk at the New York Toy Fair. They had traveled all the way from Australia in hopes to break into the US toy market. They have a very interesting style, which to me is reminiscent of Ugly Dolls. Their character driven style is inspired by the culture of Papua New Guinea infused with a healthy love of cartoons and fuelled by high voltage energy.
One of their first offerings will be the Prince of Funk vinyl toy, available in red/purple and silver/black.
Make sure you check these guys out and wish them good luck at http://www.monstafunk.com.au/
