MAN-E-NEWS// The Killer Bootlegs Artist Series: “Blackbook” Edition Art-Too…

Originally released to huge fan fare last month (find out more here), the awesome Art-Too figure from Killer Bootlegs and UK graffiti artist Hoakser has returned… this time sporting it’s very own Artist Series! Created to coincide with Black Friday this week, KB’s Peter Wheatstraw Goral enlisted the talents of some of the low-brow art scene’s finest, including graffiti writers, stencil/street artists, tattoo artists, and screen printers, each creating unique one-off backing cards for the vintage R2D2/fatcap resin mash-up. Taking inspiration from graffiti, hip-hop and of course, Star Wars, the 16 different designs were sprayed, painted, sketched and stenciled using standard KB cardbacks screen printed by Pirate Ninja. Due to touch down exclusively in the Tenacious Toys store this Friday (November 23rd), each one-of-a-kind piece will set you back $75 plus shipping…

The huge artist line-up is 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.

Original package designer Hoakser has also created an additional 2 cardback designs, but due to international shipping issues these will be available at a later date…


MAN-E-NEWS// A trio of releases from Killer Bootlegs…

Hot off the heels of last month’s ingenious “Man Inside the Mask” bootleg (find out more here), Peter Goral over at Killer Bootlegs is proud to present a trifecta of must-have resins that will be hitting the KB store this month! Here’s a quick rundown of the swag that’ll be on offer…

Vintage Art-Too feat. Hoakser// Working alongside long-time Man-E-Toys friend Hoakser, Killer Bootlegs will be releasing a new “Vintage” edition of the highly sought after “Art-Too” custom bootleg. Featuring a bootlegged vintage R2D2 with mounted spray cap, the figure has painted in the standard Krylon red and white, coming complete with a faux “Killer” Krylon sticker designed by Crush Entity. Topped off with header and character sticker art from the more than capable hands of Hoaker, “Vintage” Art-Too will be hitting the Killer Bootlegs store at some point next week… Oh, and be sure to look out for the 10 “shake and rattle” chase figures too!

Frankenfett// Due to launch the following week is the much talked about “Frankenfett”… Created using the same mould as the recent Jeremy Bulloch (Man Inside the Mask) bootleg, the decapitated figure has been cast in black, coming with GID hands and head from a vintage Remco “Universal Monsters” Frankenstein from the 80’s. Unlike Art-Too, Frankenfett will instead be offered up for pre-order on the Killer Bootlegs store (demand has been off the charts!) and will only be available in strictly limited numbers. A “chase” variant will be also released at random, featuring a reverse of the general release bootleg (GID body, with a black head and hands). Packaging will be done up in usual KB style, with each figure coming poly-bagged with a kick ass custom header card…

Killer Kaiju// Last, but by no means least, “Killer Kaiju” is Peter’s take on Japanese kaiju… albiet in 3.75″ action figure form! Kit-bashed from a vintage MOTU Webstor figure, Barbie’s little sister Skipper doll, a Madame Alexander flying monkey from The Wizard of Oz, and arms from a Kenner “Jurasic Park” T-rex, “Killer Kaiju” has been airbrushed with Monster Kolor paint and will be available in two separate offerings… Initially available poly-bagged with a Japanese movie poster style header card, Killer Bootlegs will also be featuring the figure in a carded “Monster Mash” 2 pack, with another kaiju style figure designed, molded, and cast by Butch Adams of Butcherbrand out in California. The poly-bagged version will be made available in a variety of color options and will drop the 3rd week in October, whilst  the collaborative carded version is still in the final stages of development and will be released very soon… Stay tuned for a full reveal over the coming weeks!
