    DCON 2016 Booth #812 - DKE Toys, Second Batch of stuff

    Designer Con 2016 is approaching fast and DKE sent over this latest batch of stuff that will be available at there Booth #812. Here is what DKE has to say:
    DKE Toys does about 4 conventions a year in which artists from all over the world create limited artist edition figures. Each piece is generally made out of hand poured resin and many are hand painted on custom printed (and sometimes hand drawn) card backs. Sometimes as many as 20 different artists participate in a given show. Many have commented that the DKE booth at these various shows look like a small art exhibition. While these figures are generally referred to as "bootlegs" they are far from pirated versions of mass marketed toys. Each of these artists use transformative properties in their work to communicate ideas that are often political, parody, or commentary about the pop culture world we live in. Also please do not be confused by the word "toy". These are works of art!!! Do not give to a child to play with. They will break, get ruined, and hurt your children physically and emotionally. DKE also acquires other limited edition figures from artists that are not exclusives so please stop by to see any unannounced specials. Should pieces be left over after the show please email any wants or desires to dketoys@gmail.com and we will do the best we can to accommodate requests.
