Assembly Required Asheville Designer Toy Expo


Adding a Southeast destination for designer toy collectors and admirers, *Assembly Required is Asheville’s premiere designer toy expo.

Bringing together art toy, bootleg and designer toy artists from around the country, to present and sell their work, *Assembly Required is presented by Unboxing Asheville, Morgan’s Comic’s, 103.3 Asheville FM and Appalachian Pinball Museum.

Focusing on the artistic movement of designer toys, this melting pot of artistic expression pulls inspiration from a variety of cultural elements. Everything from politics to comic books, science fiction, tattooing, street art, movies and everything related to toys &/or pop culture of the 60’s through the 90’s.

Sometimes misleading, the term 'toy' is a misnomer. Even though production methods of this lowbrow pop art echo traditional toy manufacturers, these collectibles are mostly intended for display, rather than to be played with.

Arguably one of the most popular forms that will be honored at the expo are called 'bootleg action figures". Recently coined ‘Artisanal Action Figure’, by New York Times writer, Rich Juzwiak [11/23/18]). ( https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/23/style/bootleg-toys-action-figures.html).

Juzwiak interviews such artists as the Sucklord and Killer Bootlegs, both of whom will be present at *Assembly Required.
