Close Encounter of the Third Kind

Store window displays are always an interesting sight in New York City. This one from Barneys New York is especially interesting because it shows a blue mannequin being attacked by little white people. Actually, these little white people are Munnies. Munnies are small vinyl action figures made by Kidrobot, a creator and retailer of limited edition collector toy figures. They are extremely popular among teenagers and college students. Recently, Kidrobot ventured into the apparel business and it is doing very well, especially among its core fans, the toy collectors.

While researching the identity of the little white people in the photo, I discovered these Gorillaz action figures. Aren't they cute? You can watch the video starring these action figures by clicking here. I love this video!!

Do you have a favorite toy or do you collect anything special?
