The figure, which initially was a collaboration between Killer Bootlegs and U.K. based graffiti writer Hoakser, is a cast of an r2d2 from the vintage line of Star Wars action figures. The little droid, which was redesigned to resemble a vintage Krylon can, has since become one of KB's most popular releases to date.
Blank cardbacks screenprinted by Pirate Ninja Print Shop were shipped all over the country to Peter's friends and colleagues. The artists were given the themes of Star Wars, hip hop, and graffiti. The artists involved are as follows:
Cash Cannon, Corey Hagburg, Dan Moorman, Eddie Fajardo, Emmanuel L White Eagle, James Ford, Jarrod Hennis, John Santagada, Joseph Goral, Laurence Barr, Manny Tang, Michael Lara, Ryan Lape, and Nasty Neil of Wasted Talent.
Also, Hoakser did 2 different cardback designs, but due to international shipping issues his card will be available at a later date.
The Killer Bootlegs Artist Series: "Blackbook" Edition Art-Too is scheduled for Black Friday release at Tenacious Toys on the Killer Bootlegs page. Each one of a kind Art-Too will be sold for $75 a piece, plus shipping and handling.
