TokyoPlastics myplasticheart is an online store based in New York City. Dedicated to bringing you the best the creative world has to offer, we try to provide the widest range of products that represent today's design and street culture. We're looking for products which are original, inspired, and just plain fun.

Our current focus is on the budding toy craze that has swept Asia in the last 3 years and is just now invading the U.S. and Europe. Asian toymakers found a way to mix toys, traditionally a child's medium, with street culture and modern design to create a unique product which is not only targeted to children but to adults who can appreciate their unusual and unique personalities. The fact that legitimate and well recognized designers and artists have jumped aboard further legitimizes their foothold on this budding market.

We at myplasticheart want to expose as many people as possible to design culture and the beauty it has to offer. We will try our best to provide you with the most innovative products on the market as well as keep you abreast of the goings on in the design world. We hope you enjoy the site and what we have to offer. Thanks!

McFarlane Toys founder Todd McFarlane began as a comic book artist and is still intimately involved with comics today. Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn, is a multi-faceted artist and businessman with a broad range of experience in entertainment, sports and publishing.

McFarlane was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on March 16, 1961, but spent most of his childhood in Southern California. Returning to Calgary at age 14, Todd first discovered the world of comic books in high school. He bought all the comics he could afford, especially the works of his favorite artists: John Byrne, George Perez, Marshall Rogers, Michael Golden, Art Adams and Walter Simonson. Although he spent a lot of time drawing comic book heroes.

His break finally came when Todd accepted an offer from Marvel/Epic Comics in March 1984, pencilling "Scorpio Rose," an 11-page backup story in the comic book Coyote. In the meantime, McFarlane married his high school sweetheart, Wanda, in July 1985. They moved to Washington, where Wanda completed her biology degree and then moved back to Canada, living in a suburb of Vancouver. Todd continued to make headway in the comics industry, pencilling several issues of Marvel's Incredible Hulk, and several assignments with DC Comics, including the Batman title Detective and two issues of Batman.

Todd had grown frustrated with the workings of the mainstream publishing companies, which allowed artists little creative freedom or control over their own creations. Determined to create a company in which the artist could make the important decisions about his characters, Todd spoke with several other prominent Marvel artists, learning that many of them felt the same way. After months of discussion among themselves, the seven hottest Marvel artists announced their departure from the company. The rebels included Todd, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Jim Valentino, Erik Larsen, Marc Silvestri and Whilce Portacio. The group formed Image Comics, the parent corporation and publisher of each artist's individual comic book company. Although the partners publish together, they each control the destiny of their own characters and reap the rewards individually, including all licensing and merchandising decisions.

Only with the creation of Image Comics did Todd feel that he could begin publishing the comic he had created nearly 10 years before, Spawn. "Spawn is in this seedy, David Lynch kind of world that isn't quite right. I made it dark to make the guy who he is. If the shadows are removed, then the essence of the character is removed," Todd said.

Now he creates action figures of notable comic character from his own company and various other creators.
