The cheap plastic futurism of grocery store vending machines

In addition to selling chintzy malformed plastic curios, supermarket vending machines also purvey a heady futurism — you can buy aliens, robots, and spy kits for a mere 25¢. Greg Rivera has captured the pop weirdness of these phantasmagoria dispensers.

You can find several dozen more of these bauble displays at his Flickr. Spotted on Mishka NYC.
