Superplastic and Mercedes-Benz have come together for an other-worldly collaboration. We’ve taken an antique automotive icon and transformed him into a modern-day maven. The slightly staid and old-fashioned “Wackeldackel” nodding dog dashboard toy is officially upgraded to an international party pup, Superdackel.
THE SUPERDACKEL COLLECTION
The heart of the collection is a special-edition, 11-inch handcrafted Superdackel figure sculpted from sustainable cherry, maple, walnut, and alder wood and styled with the iconic Mercedes-Benz emblem. The Superdackel sculpture symbolizes how Mercedes-Benz and SUPERPLASTIC are fusing the luxury automotive and digital creative worlds. The sculpture includes a small base for display and a custom Baltic birch box – making it a must-have collectible for art, design, and car enthusiasts alike. Additionally, the exclusive collection features a premium apparel & luxe accessories.
WHO IS SUPERDACKEL
Back in the day, you‘d hardly see a Benz without a nodding dog. To bring this figurine back to life and pop-culture, Mercedes-Benz and SUPERPLASTIC teamed up: Meet Superdackel! SUPERPLASTIC’s synthetic celebrities, Janky & Guggimon, have elevated the “Wackeldackel” pup from his physical realm by taking him on the ride of his life through the digital universe of SUPERPLASTIC. The stylish new Superdackel has all the great qualities of his predecessor but with an adventurous edge that will leave everyone wanting more.
