DKE – NYCC Exclusives Wave #1

unnamed (1)

 

DKE will be at NYCC this year. Yep! They will be exhibiting at the East Coast’s premier convention for the time in a long time. Now that they are not in the  distribution game directly anymore, they are focusing on increasing their show presence beyond  SDCC and DesignerCon.  DKE will be bringing the art of the action-figure to the NYC audience with several suitcases full of exclusives. Here’s a quick look at their first wave of announcements, with a heavy focus on Star Wars (people just can’t get enough).

The Lucas-inspired parade is anchored by the  timely, tongue-in-cheek Darth Trump ($85) by Timebandits and Special Ed Toys brings us the Donald as the preeminent dark disturbance in the force. In between hawking his steaks, his water, his golf courses, and more, he’s hard at work creating a new Empire order, one tweet at a time.  

Hit the jump for previews of action-figures and pins from RYCA, Jim Mahfood, Manly Art and more.

Kyle Kirwan x myplasticheart – Chlor NYCC Exclusive

14484912_10153798820156302_4175549292449365176_n

Kyle Kirwan will be releasing an exclusive colorway of his Chlor resin figure through the myplasticheart booth #113. Chlor stands 5.5” tall and is a part of his Cavus Bloom series and is painted in a GID green. Each figure will retail $30 and will be very limited! We are curious on how beautifully this thing glows!

Day 11:

One of the things I was most excited about upon entering Manchester proper was a chance to encounter the rare Cavus Bloomus that reside solely within the kingdom. There has never been a proper study of them, so I’ve spent the last few years interviewing anyone who has encountered one of these fascinating subterranean Blooms. From my research I have learned that there are at least six distinct varieties of this subspecies and they are somehow frothy. Nearly every subject has reported that the Cavus Bloomus “smell and bubble.” It is unfortunate that with my breathing apparatus in place I will be unable to verify their odor for myself. I’ve also heard there are marked physical differences between each hue and they are almost nothing like the more common Terra Bloomus that reside in the rest of Dor. My theory is that Cavus Bloomus are mutated Terra, physically changed by years of exposure to the multitude of gasses in the caves. There are tales of fluffy footed Blues and single-eyed Reds. According to some the Purples possess stumpy little legs and fly about. Yellows and Greens are said to be friendly and less wary of the Cave People. No one knows much about the Orange beyond the fact that they definitely exist. I look forward to encountering these creatures myself for a chance to apply the Naturalist Scientific Process to their study.

Super7 at NYCC – Wing Kong, Cab Dragon and MOTU

NYCC_2016_Promo-01

Super7 will be exhibiting at NYCC this year [booth #126] and they’ve started to pull back the curtain on what they’ll be bringing to the big apple.  Here’s a look at several newly announced vinyl figs including two new original editions: the red hot Wing Kong Maroon Baboon ($95) and the Original Orange Cab Dragon figure with skate legend Steve Caballero ($50).  

S7 will also release two new MOTU sofubis which pay homage to the vintage Speclatron bootlegs—Skeletor ($65) and Beastman ($65). Per their lineage, each features a clear + glitter torso.  As before, these come in fancy window boxes rather than bag + header.  While these four would make a pretty solid lineup, it sounds like there’s more to be announced shortly.
