adFunture @ 5 Pts — Deez Nuts NY Editions by Crack


Deez Nuts from Crack and adFunture  will make its debut in NYC atFive Points Fest (6.1 - 6.2)  with a pair of stylish NY editions.  First shown in unpainted proto form at STS in April, Deez Nuts—play it cool—continues the resurgence of urban vinyl (optimism is a powerful force) with a futuristic dose of style.

This one is all about the juxtaposition of the stylized, tech helmet with horns and snout-like design with the urban gear from the jacket to the Dunks.  And yes, the helmet comes off to reveal a stark message in Chinese: 'kill'. 

adFunture will release its 'Y' and 'S' (we think you can figure out the references) editions at their booth [#232] for $80/each. Both will be available in very limited advanced release quantities. They will also be available for $100 at with free shipping.

fortune_uamou-1As part of its lineup for the upcoming Five Points Festival (6.1 - 6.2) in Brooklyn, myplasticheart will release their Exclusive Fortune Uamou Black Gold Statue of Liberty edition ($30) from Uamou.  A clever NYC-themed version of the figure, the Statue of Liberty variant has proven quite popular with an initial green edition (Five Points 2018), a sparkly green edition (NYCC 2018) and now this Black Gold edition.  Each of the previous editions has sold out, so if you'd like to add the newest Fortune Uamou Statue of Liberty figure to your collection, you might want to put the myplasticheart booth [#336] at the top of your 5 Points shopping list.
