Killer Bootlegs Artist Series: "Blackbook" Edition Art-Too figures drop on Black Friday

Last month, Peter Wheatstraw Goral of Killer Bootlegs started recruiting a motley crew of artists. Graffiti writers, stencil/street artists, tattoo artists, and screen printers were called upon for an "Artist Series" for a carded version of the "Vintage Art-Too" bootleg action figure.

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.

MAD Toy Design's "Modern Hero" Resin - Limited Black Friday Drop

There's a lot of great deals and incredible items to be had on this Blackest of week days, but MAD Toy Design's new chunk of solid resin may just be the one to beat them all. Literally.

Standing an impressive 7" tall, the highly-polished Modern Hero is limited to a tiny handmade run of 13 pieces (only 10 for sale) and each one will be packaged in a numbered, laser-etched wooden box.

The $300 price tag might scare the unworthy, but it's well worth it for a considerable piece of art such as this. I don't know the precise drop time, but it's probably about midnight. Keep your eyes on the MAD Toy Store for the drop!
