I'm at a loss to explain this but I wish them the best. Somebody's money is on the line here. Scenesters World is so far one set of six punky figurines, some keychains and a button that simply reads "Scenester". Each character has a backstory and I guess they each reflect a young and punk demographic. Brandon is still reeling from his favorite punk band signing to a major label a couple months ago, while Lucky refuses to take money from his parents, and is spare-changing to start a record label to put out a 7-inch record for his band, Spange.
What's the target age for these things? Is it something punk kids buy for themselves or an impulse item for parents with punk kids? They're on sale at Tower, Hot Topic and "other cool places near you".
The word "Scenester" looks funny on paper. Stare at it and after a while it looks like it could be pronounced "Sinister". Does a button that says "Scenester" scream poser, or is there an age where a kid would proudly wear it because that's what they want to be? Uh.......
