DKE Toys SDCC 2017 Batch #5 - Mark Todd, Killer Bootlegs, and CNE

by
Welcome to the fifth BATCH of DKE Toys SDCC 2017 CON STUFF!


STR WAS: DTH VDR by Mark Todd

Last year we got more attention about Mark Todd's Chewback figure than just about anything else. Here is his follow up. Mark hand sculpted the piece, it was cast in resin and then he hand painted each one and crafted a cape and saber. The card back is signed and numbered 
and is printed on a risograph which is the same type of machine his zines are printed on. Signed and numbered edition of 30. $55


Bio: Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, it's neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and two French Bulldogs, Mr. Pickles and Gherkin.


Starkiller Coffee by Killer Bootlegs

Hand cast and painted 3.75" scale carded figure. 
Signed and numbered edition of 50
$55

Bio: Born in the 80s, Killer Bootlegs artist Peter Goral's childhood was saturated with action figures, cartoons, and classic movies. When he was 4 years old, his father showed him a bootleg copy of The Empire Strikes Back. Little did he know that this would start Peter on the path to being at the forefront of the bootleg toy movement. Today, Peter's artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other resin artists to follow in his footsteps. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys.



A Real American Value Meal by CNE 

This one is from a new company on the scene, CNE or Chicken Nugget Enterprises. This is their take on what this cybernetic chicken would look like as a GI Joe style figure. Sculpted by George Gaspar of Double G Toys.

Card art work was an existing painting by Jason Edmiston that they got permission to use and the card back was designed by Carlos Espinoza of MOC Toys. Each piece is hand cast and painted 3.75" carded figure. 

Edition of 100. $65

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1625584137/up-up-away-kyoot-vinyl-toy

“Up Up Away Kyoot” is a self-appointed super hero fighting for all things cute. With a homemade costume, a K sewn on his chest, he climbed up onto the biggest box he could find, and blew the biggest bubble he could blow. All in the hopes that he would take off into the sky in search of action and adventure. 

Created by Artist Lisa Rae Hansen aka I Break Toys - http://www.ibreaktoys.com/ - Up Up Away Kyoot is 4 " tall on his own but a full 7" once perched upon his trusty box. The original resin is shown below and this Vinyl reproduction will be an exact replica. There will be a Kickstarter exclusive colorway in Green/Black and additional colorways announced as the campaign progresses.
 
Both Lisa & The Designer Toy Collective are incredibly excited about this project and are very confident in our ability to bring it to life. All they need is help from you to get started!

DKE Toys SDCC 2017 Batch #2 - Little Lazies, Jason Adams and DrilOne

by
Welcome to the second BATCH of DKE Toys SDCC 2017 CON STUFF!


Yoclops by Little Lazies

This is one of the most special exclusives DKE has ever had. Each piece has been hand sculpted by Leah Lester of Little Lazies. No two are exactly the same but they are so close to one another that it's kind of hard to imagine that they aren't cast and she made 50 of them!!! They are signed and numbered on the bottom of the figure and carded in a package she designed and are only $55.  


Bio: Little Lazies are weird, little, clay creatures made by Leah Lester, a monster maker living in Seattle, WA. How did it all start? Leah was a full time cake decorator who very much enjoyed sculpting out of edible paste for the cakes she created. One sunny day in June 2010 she said to herself, "I want to make a monster for the top of this cake!" So she did just that... Soon after, her friends started encouraging her to create these characters into clay; something that they could keep for a lifetime. So with that, Leah bought some clay and with lots of practice, experimenting, character developing and imagination her monsters evolved into what they are today - the Little Lazies

Job Wars by Jason Adams

Hand cast and painted 3.75" carded figure. Signed and numbered edition of 20. $55

Bio: From Fort Worth, Texas, Jason is an approved Lucasfilm artist (Topps Star Wars sketchcards), Marvel artist (Upper Deck sketchcards), and has done cover work for BOOM!- Studios (Bravest Warriors).  Influenced by early punk rock, Jason employs DIY style that uses hand cut stencils, spray paint, and markers to create unique original pieces.  When he’s not spray painting, Jason also works in the custom toy world creating hand poured resin action figures.
