"This low-budget documentary...explore(s) the interplay of American pop culture, punk rock and Japanese designer toys." WIRED MAGAZINE "Toypunks does an impressive job of putting a spotlight on the toy sub-genre, showing how it got there and what pushed it forward." GIANT ROBOT "There's more to Toypunks then a celebration of cool, though. The DVD also touches on...the cultural differences that exist between the East and the West." CLUTTER UK
