Hello Press and Friends,

DKE Toys Presents #DKECON - NYCC Edition

October 8-11, 2020
A virtual event!

DKE Toys is hosting a LIVE virtual event in place of the canceled 2020 New York Comic Con. Following the success of our SDCC virtual event we bring you #DKECON - NYCC Edition! The pandemic continues to provide the unusual opportunity of inviting everyone we know to our "booth".

The DKE Toys New York Comic Con booth will be set up in the DKE warehouse and available to all via a live continuous Zoom meeting 10am-7pm PST each day except Sunday ending at 5pm. For the first time in DKE Toys history all of the NYCC convention releases will be available in our online store.

Updated schedule and all information https://dketoys.com/dkecon

The online store will go live with all of the new NYCC editions at 10am PST Thursday October 8th and will remain open for the duration of the show.

All exclusive products will be limited to one per person per item on Thursday. Starting Friday at 10am customers will be able to purchase two or more based on availability.

With each qualifying purchase customers will receive a "fine" silk-screened Suckadelic tote bag designed for DKE by the Super Sucklord himself. Edition limited to 1000.

Check the link dketoys.com/dkecon for the completed schedule. Programming will include surprise releases, artist interviews, collector features, virtual studio tours, giveaways, surprise guests, You're Very Special with Dollar $lice Bootlegs, contests and whatever else we can conjure up to occupy all 34 hours of our LIVE Zoom booth hours. (Schedule below.)

We will also have one of a kind back stock items, DKE warehouse tour, show-and-tell with Dov. Tune in and ask Dov anything! Chat with Dov and staff about toy making, art, food, parenting tips, collecting, politics, and more. In quiet moments watch Dov and staff pull and pack your order LIVE!

DKE will have over 2 dozen exclusive releases. (Artist list below.) We will also have three mini art shows with Albert Reyes, Dustin Benzig, and Dan Goodsell. Email announcements will follow over the next week.
