Five Points Festival is also partnering with Superplastic, a brand new toy company from legendary toy pioneers, Paul Budnitz (founder of Kidrobot) and Huck Gee (whom just launched their Kickstarter for JANKY, and they are "celebrating" the occasion with giving away a MASSIVE 4-foot JANKY, designed by Gee and Budnitz.
