It’s been a while since we featured the work of Killer Bootlegs‘ Peter Goral (read our original feature here), so it came with great pleasure today to find an e-mail in our inbox with a whole host of awesome new projects from the studio! Debuting on the Killer Bootlegs store last month, the Cosmic Creeps are Peter’s latest line of bootleg action figures, with the stunning Mechatard J. Napier the first out of the stable. Kit-bashing a vintage C3PO, Deathstar Droid, Walrus Man, and the Joker, the figure takes his name from the Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman, Jack Napier. Coming blister packed on a hand pulled silk-screened card by Jarrod Hennis over at the Pirate Ninja Print Shop, the packaging features baby blue pentagrams and the Cosmic Creeps logo on a Star Wars-esque card. Limited to just 20 pieces (with only 2 left!), Mechatard J. Napier can be yours for just $25 plus shipping.
The next character to feature in the series will be the mighty Sharkgut Wayne Gracey. Kit-bashed from a vintage Ree Yees, Bossk, Nien Nunb, and Whiplash from He-man, the figure was given the name Sharkgut by his 4 1/2 year old daughter, whilst Wayne Gracey refers to the infamous American serial killer! Coming bagged with a header card in true KB style, the bootleg, as with Mechatard J. Napier, has been cast in multiple marbled colours, with 5 chase variants coming in a cool clear resin. Also limited to 20 pieces, expect Sharkgut Wayne Gracey to hit the KB store soon for just $15.
Alongside the Cosmic Creeps, Peter has also been working on several other projects, including a very special Boba Fett bootleg that will be making its debut soon! Leaving the vintage action figure’s body as-is, Peter has replaced the head with a Battlestar Galactica figure that resembles an elderly Jeremy Bulloch- the actor who played Boba Fett in the Star Wars films! Very limited numbers of the figure are going to be cast, packaged, and signed by the actor himself. Expect these to drop sometime after the Wizard World Chicago event (where Peter will be getting the figures signed in person).
Anyone interested in grabbing any of the Killer Bootlegs back catalog will be glad to know that both Budha Fett and Frozen Fett are still available alongside Mechatard J. Napier in the KB store. Be sure to keep track of both the Killer Bootlegs Facebook and Twitter for up to the minute info on future releases…
