Superplastic teams with The Weeknd for vinyl toys celebrating 10 years of Kiss Land
Superplastic has teamed with The Weeknd to launch a limited-edition vinyl toy collection marking the 10th anniversary of his debut album, Kiss Land.
The collection drops on September 10th, exactly 10 years after Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye released Kiss Land. The range draws inspiration from the ‘desolate, atmospheric setting portrayed in the album’s moody lyrics and mascot, Super Fantastic Red Panda Cat’.
The line-up features Superplastic’s SuperJanky design, which includes three premium vinyl figures in Green, Black, and Red, all accessorised with removable VR goggles covering 3D eyes. The Green colourway is available for outright purchase, while the black and red colourways are sold as blind boxes.
“The Weeknd is consistently reshaping the artistic landscape through his versatile contribution to music and television; the 10th anniversary of Kiss Land is a special milestone, symbolising a pivotal moment that propelled his career to new heights,” said Superplastic’s Chief Development Officer, Ioana Banu.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Abel and his team on a very limited collection of Superplastic vinyl art toys, allowing us to pay homage to this monumental occasion.”
Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye added: “It’s surreal to look back on 10 years since the release of Kiss Land and to see the lasting impact this album has had on me as an artist and how it continues to be received by my fans.
“The Kiss Land collection is in recognition of this journey we are on together, and I am grateful to Superplastic for helping to bring this vision to life and celebrate this special moment.”
The Kiss Land collection is available online at superplastic.co, at the Superplastic Store in NYC and on shop.theweeknd.com.
