Designer Con is just a few days away! November 19 and 20 at the Pasadena Convention Center. A one day pass is only $10. Two day is $15. Such a deal... Come see DKE Toys in booth #812 for SO MANY BOOTLEG TOYS!! Plus The Super Sucklord is right next to their booth doing his thing! This is Batch #1 of what should only be 2 batches.
DKE Toys does about 4 conventions a year in which artists from all over the world create limited artist edition figures. Each piece is generally made out of hand poured resin and many are hand painted on custom printed (and sometimes hand drawn) card backs. Sometimes as many as 20 different artists participate in a given show. Many have commented that the DKE booth at these various shows look like a small art exhibition. While these figures are generally referred to as “bootlegs” they are far from pirated versions of mass marketed toys. Each of these artists use transformative properties in their work to communicate ideas that are often political, parody, or commentary about the pop culture world we live in. Also please do not be confused by the word “toy”. These are works of art!!! Do not give to a child to play with. They will break, get ruined, and hurt your children physically and emotionally. DKE also acquires other limited edition figures from artists that are not exclusives so please stop by to see any unannounced specials. Should pieces be left over after the show please email any wants or desires to email@example.com and they will do the best they can to accommodate requests.
