Cortez, the melody maker

As the months and years go by and the art toy world gets ever more and more crowded, I find myself losing interest quickly.
Not too long ago, the first info was released about this upcoming piece, and if this is a sign of things to come, I may just be sucked back into collecting whole-heartedly!


"The accordion playing Cortez from Tom Lahdesmaki (theOuterone Design) is the latest in an impressive string of vinyl figures coming from BIC Plastics. Cortez can be removed from his included base and can rest comfortably on all sorts of objects – speakers, shelf, etc. Who’s Cortez? Here’s the official back-story:"

Cortez is an old man living in an old and ancient little town in Spain. His passion is music and he loves what he does. He’s days are simple, he travels the streets of his hometown and sets up in various places playing the tunes of old through his love - the accordion.
