 Scott Kinnebrew and Jason Chalker will be putting on a Star Wars-themed art and toy show at Kidrobot NY on October 11 during NYCC! The show is called "Art Wars- New Hope Intergalactic Custom Toy Show" and you can check out the Facebook event here. He snuck a few teasers our way for a few of the MANY cool items they'll have for sale at the show.

  • Booger Fett (5" Kozik Booger)
  • The Qeewoks (4 x 8" Qees)

13" x 19" custom print "Iggy's Street Wheels"  (Ltd Edition Print available only at this show)
Somewhere in a galaxy far far away when their not hunting scruffy looking nerfherders, a group of bounty hunters skate the stars in search of the perfect slice of pavement.  When you've got the Empire on your side,and that damned Millenium Falcon running away from you you've gotta ride the right's 88's or nothing.
Bantha Buddies - Scott's newest resin sculpt:
 This little guy comes in a 4" x 4" milk box from the Tatooine dairy farms (100% organic of course)...and you thought they only held blue milk.  Not the case as ach one of these blind boxes contains one Bantha Buddy, a colorful baby bantha ready to come home with you.  There are an unknown number of multicolor chases, but each buddy regardless has a unique body/horn color combination and no two are alike.  There will be less than 40 available for sale the night of the show, and once these are gone, there will be no more. They will be $30 a piece, and I'm sure there might be some trading going on as well.  Each box get's you one bantha and one FOD sticker staring that lovable Wampa that bouces a.k.a. The Wample

Carson Catlin customs at the Tenacious NYCC booth 3121

Following the "something for everyone" rule of retailing, Carson Catlin has executed a plethora of differently sized customs for sale at our NYCC booth #3121. From 3" Dunny customs all the way up to an 18" Qee Bear, you'll definitely find one to suit your budget! Come meet CCC at booth 3121 at 2pm Saturday October 13th for his signing.... I believe we are going to display and sell SOME of these customs before the signing, but we'll be holding some back until Carson signs. I'd imagine the 18" Qee will be on display in our booth the whole time, cuz it's just too big to hide. Photo op!

Ron English Video and Product Announcement

Straight from our friends over at Dudebox comes this video and a special toy announcement. Part 2 of the Ron English conversation has been posted where he talks about his take on platform toys, the vinyl art scene and Dudebox's Dudes.

To watch the film head over to the DBTV page and if you missed the first part view it here

"We want to thank Ron for letting us into his world and for showing us around his studio. It was a very inspirational journey for us and we just had to ask Ron to put down one of those 5 million ideas he had for the Dude. Which leads perfectly into the final reveal of our release line up for New York Comic Con. All the pieces seemed to fall into place, watch that video again and you will see a replica dinosaur hanging out in Ron's garden. That's not just any random dinosaur, Ron has a bit of a fascination for them, their origins and what they evolved into. So Ron turned an egg into a dino to create King Monster ~  a homage to those ancient beasts that once roamed this land. Taking a different direction from Ron's more established pop art route, King Monster really is a Terror From A Lost World."

King Monster will be released October 11, 2012 at New York Comic-com and online at Dudebox's website. In addition Ron English will be signing at the Dudebox booth (#2915) at the con on Friday (October 12) from 4:00-5:00 pm and again on Saturday (October13) from 2:00-3:00 pm.
