The "Rollie" Show from NemO & Tenacious Toys

The Rollie Show is a collaboration between Tenacious Toys and NemO (NYC-based sculptor Mike Mendez). NemO wants to use little roll-on deodorant bottles (Rollies!) as custom platforms! And why not? With a sexy little organic shape, these specific Rollies are cheap, plastic and made in China just like everything else you customize. BUT, these only cost 99 cents!

The Rollies are as pictured above- they are all Ban brand or one of the Avon brands: Skin So Soft, etc... so they are easy to locate. However, if you can't find one for yourself, they have easy access to them in NYC and they can mail one to you for a couple bucks. $3 gets an emptied-out Rollie shipped to your door if you are in the US or Canada. Shipping overseas is slightly more but still very affordable. If you are interested in participating in this show contact Benny via tenacioustoys@gmail.com!

The Rollie Show custom show
Friday, October 30th, 7PM
All the Right graff supply store
3561 Junction Blvd
Corona, Queens, NY

Why not? You're going to destroy & paint over the platform anyway, who says that has to be expensive? Mike loves interesting shapes and he'd been thinking about using the Rollies as platforms for years so I just felt he should carry that idea through!

Nemo is Mike Mendez, a NY-based sculptor and artist who's quickly making his mark in the toy world as the go-to guy for sculpting projects and super-detailed customs.

In addition to the show at All the Right in Queens, Tenacious Toys already has a section dedicated to the Rollies customs: http://www.tenacioustoys.com/category_s/77.htm

Custom Rollies will be for sale! The proceeds from any sale will be split 50/50 between the artist and the curators. For potential buyers not in the NYC area, the Rollies will also be for sale on TenaciousToys.com for 4-6 weeks. Customs may be returned to artist at any time after that at your request.
