Just when we said we were done announcing SDCC 2015 stuff here’s 9os Vader by DrilOne. It is a hand painted and customized replica Darth Vader helmet. Come check it out at DKE booth #5045. It’s an awesome 1/1.

Attackers of the Missing Stuff S.U.C.K.L.E. figure
Edition of 100
One of the Sucklord’s early figures is what we commonly refer to as the Pink Toht figure from Raiders. It was inspired by a Marvel Raiders comic where Toht was colored Pink. The purpose of the S.U.C.K.L.E. line is to recreate all of the Sucklord’s work in the M.U.S.C.L.E. format. The problem is that if we made this figure in China in the regular colors and all the exclusives then it’s just a colored Toht figure. It really only works if it’s pink. So this release had to be in resin only. Limited to 100 and $30 but you also get a “flesh” version with it. Bagged with header card. Sculpted by George Gaspar.
This is a follow up to last year’s series of Bones resin figures on hand painted backer cards. Last year DKE had a vintage Star Wars style card for the Bones figure so this year we have Lucky on a Power of the Force inspired card. Hand cast resin figure by Garret Ziegler from BlockHeads toys. Card back hand painted by Mike Egan. With specially sculpted wings by George Gaspar.
Yes! This is a hand cast figure. A collab with Broke1 aka Broken Pidgeon and AWOL One who also did the card back illustration. MOOD is DOOM backwards GET IT? 3.75 inches tall. Hand made resin in custom packaging.
Hand cast and hand painted by MannyX and his new brand Iconoclast Toys. There are lots of variations in the color so we are pretty sure this is a multiple color resin pour. This is a follow up to his Black Bart figure. Bootleg Bart has hundreds and hundreds of posts on IG each with a unique bootleg Bart Simpsons shirt. The card back is based on the original 80s Mattel Simpsons line. Figure is to scale as well at about 3.5 inches.
