Remember Colorforms? Following a comprehensive 5-minute search of the Internet I have determined that the Colorforms company, although producing sets specifically for iconic artists like The Beatles, KISS, and Elvis Presley, did not produce a comprehensive set of Colorforms that would have allowed us, as children, to create our own vision of the Ultimate Rock Star. Well, maybe they did, but if they did I’m sure it wasn’t as good as the Colorforms set we’re about to create.
As a service to help soothe yet one more dashed rock ‘n roll dream, Rock Town Hall will be partnering with Colorforms to create the Rock Town Hall Kit, a Colorforms toy. This set will include, from head to toe, the most iconic elements of rock wardrobe and accoutrements for future generations to mix and match onto blank figures in the effort of creating the Ultimate Rock Star.
Now the hard part… Read on!
Options for pieces are limited to the most iconic elements of the possible Ultimate Rock Star. Through discussion and debate, if necessary, we will identify 5 specific pieces of each of the following wardrobe items/rock star acccoutrements:
- Facial hair
- Instrument/representative gear (eg, drumsticks)
- Completely unnecessary (in musical or any other terms) wardrobe item/accoutrement that may be used to cap off one’s Look
- Hanger-on (eg, specific manager, roadie, groupie, “collaborator,” etc)
The specificity of your examples is paramount in helping Colorforms develop the Rock Town Hall Kit the kids deserve. In advance, we thank you for your input!
