We’ve been closely following the progress of Dubose Art‘s first custom bootleg, Driggs “The Hunter”, since it’s inception a few weeks back, so it came with great pleasure this morning to find the first batch revealed in all their glory… Created for Killer Bootlegs‘ upcoming “Toy Are Us” group art show, the stunning figure has been kit-bashed from a variety of early 90′s ToyBiz X Men figures and an Alien model kit, coming complete with a ton of original sculpting in Dubose’s instantly recognisable style. Due to feature alongside companion piece, the Devil Dog, and fellow action figure sculpt Malrog, the Monster Kolor dyed resin figures will be limited to just 4 pieces for the show, with a limited batch hopefully following shortly after…

In association with Killer Bootlegs and Monster Kolor, the “Toys Are Us” group art show will be taking place at the Rockford Art Deli between April 5th-6th. Head over to the dedicated web page here for more details…
