Mini Basquiat has a new friend to play with now that Mr. Throwback has his own action figure.
Michael Spitz (aka Mr. Throwback) tells us it all started when Brooklyn-based writer and multimedia artist Moth de la Cruz came into his vintage toy and clothing shop on East Ninth Street and showed off a hybrid action figure he had made for his son, using the body of a Venom figure and the head of a Kid Robot-esque bear. Spitz encouraged him to turn the mash-ups into a business and now, under the name Mixxedchampions, De la Cruz sells figurines of Cocaine Fiends and the like.
