Five Points Festival recently held their sophomore show this time in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Expo Center. The show put on by Clutter MagazineFive Points Festival is a celebration all things designer toys, street art, and beer.
Similar to last year the show floor was mainly split into two areas, exhibitors and an artist alley. However as I mentioned in a previous article the line between artist and exhibitor was blurred much more this year; so instead of breaking the articles down between how the booths were arranged I’m going to split my coverage up based on more traditional companies and artists and their own companies.
The exhibitors were spread over five aisles and featured around 100 exhibitors selling a mix of vinyl and plastic toys, art, resin, plush, blind boxes, blanks, minis, kaiju, Sofubi, and more. Traditional companies such as FYE, St Marks Comics, Toy Tokyo, Super7, myplasticheart, and Kidrobot mixed with the more focused companies like Instincttoy, Rampage Toys, Punk Drunkers, Martian Toys, and Might Jaxx.
Take a look below at some of the amazing booths and products featured at Five Points Festival. Most descriptions come from the company websites.
