NYCC runs October 6 to 9, 2016 and DKE Toys will be in Booth #423 with a slew of Con Stuff! We will be sending out announcements in batches again as we did for SDCC. This is #2 of most likely only 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. Keep checking them at Flickr, they are always adding images at Flickr, including unannounced Con Stuff! 

red-guy

Red Guy and Blue Guy by Barbarian Rage

We saw a one off figure set on Instagram earlier this year. We called Scott to please make an edition for us. He said no way. We begged. Promises were made… Here they are! Hand cast and painted 3.75″ carded figures. Each color a signed and numbered edition of 25. Card back was based on Scott’s original velvet painting. Only $45 each. Never again he said.

Star Weird: PerFett & Boombox by Topztoy

In a follow up to the SDCC sold out edition Boba Classette, Topztoy is back with an equally “weird” figure, PerFett. Each $40 piece is hand cast 3.75″ resin figure on card and an edition of 40. The blister packaging allows for the figure to be removed and replaced with ease for extra “play” value.

D’OH Boy by PHX

This is the debut figure of our favorite doughnut eating icon by PHX. The figure is approx. 4″ tall and each piece is a hand painted cast resin figurine numbered out of 30 pieces worldwide. The card back measures in at a whopping 8.5 x 11. $65 each

nycc_darthbuddha
Darth Buddha by Random Skull Productions

After seeing this piece at Designer Con last year we knew we needed an edition for an upcoming show. We asked and we received the Darth Buddha Sith Red edition. This deity of the dark side stands just over 4 inches tall and has been hand cast in a limited red colorway. Each figure is signed and numbered and comes bagged with a matching signed and numbered card. $40 each and only 25 made!

C-P33N by Kill! X Virva Peikko

It’s amazing that no one came out with this figure sooner. Back in 1977 Topps Trading cards actually released a trading card with this golden phallus to unsuspecting children. How it got there is a source of some speculation. Prank on the set or irate employee no one quite knows or at least no one is fessing up to it. Now in all its glory you can have your own hand cast and painted 2″ resin figure on card. Only 30 made. $55 each.

nycc_bortman
Bortman by Kill! X Virva Peikko

What do you get when our favorite bad kid gets mashed up with an animal from the sewers? Yup, Bortman. Hand cast and painted 3″ resin figure on card. Edition of 30. $65 each

nycc_jawabbit
Jawa Bunny by Flat Bonnie

Flat Bonnie created a special version of their famous little bunny in cosplay as JaWabbit for New York Comic Con. Each handmade and hand sewn piece is made from soft fleece, vinyl pleather and safety eyes. They are 12″ tall, signed and limited to 30 pieces and retail for $45 each.

nycc_riot-scum
Riot Scum: Greeloo by Buzzard Guts

The second addition to the Riot Scum figure line from Buzzard Guts and a collaboration with Last Boss Comics’ Neil Devlin. Witty Rodian and musical virtuoso Greeloo, rocks the one liners just as hard as she rocks the keys. She joined the band shortly after a gig at the Mos Eisley cantina where they were introduced by the opening band, Chewy Lewis and the News. Hand cast and painted 3.75″ resin figure on custom card. $45 each. Edition of 20.

R2-SL1200 by Artbot138

After a sold out SDCC edition Artbot138 is back with the second and final installment. Each hand cast and painted 3.75″ scale carded figure comes with an actual vintage 7″ record with Artbot138custom label. The “robot” has been modified to resemble a vintage UZAY figure. Edition of 40. $65 each.

nycc_salacious-protester
Salacious Protester by Special Ed Toys • Special Ed just couldn’t hold back for NYCC. Their third piece for the show is the Salacious Protester, a follow up to their hit Protest Trooper. Signed and numbered edition of 50 pieces utilizing an actual vintage Kenner Salacious Crumb figure from 1983 in each one!!! With the very low price of $30 how could they last? AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!! “From bootleg toys to terrible “art” of dubious quality, there is no type of “artistic” medium I won’t shamelessly exploit in my mission to bring a little bit of terribleness into collector’s homes far and wide!”
