DKE is the go-to source for bootleg/art action figures at San Diego Comic-Con.  From  the exclusives they’ve announced so far, that well-served reputation will continue to grow with carded treasures appealing to Star Wars collectors and art collectors looking for edgy, humorous, gotta see it to believe it toys.  Here’s our roundup (read: catchup) post of all the goodness that DKE has announced to-date that will be available at their SDCC booth (#5045).

Let’s start with two releases from artists new to the world of art action figures.  First up is Santo Vader (30 s/n pcs, $100) by Carlos Ramirez formerly of the renowned Date Famers art collective. From the eclectic sculpt to the the color scheme, the new toy fits seamlessly into the Date Farmers  art style.   On the lighter side of things, The Great Showdowns (50 s/n pcs, $100) 2-pack brings us illustrator Scott C.’s  take on Ghostbusters in his signature infectious, sketchy style.

Moving on, DKE will also release a trio of new figures from  RYCA which showcase the range of his growing body of bootleg action figure art, from the socially-conscious I Am a Man (30 s/n pcs, $55) to the Art Trooper Series: Haring (65 s/n pcs, $55) and the blinged-out Wampapi (25 s/n pcs, $80).

While the bootleg art toy game continues to diversify, the most popular inspiration for figure riffs is Star Wars.  As with past years, DKE will have plenty to satisfy those eager to walk on the alternate side of the Lucas galaxy.  On the Light Side of the Force, there’s R2-DPoo (40 s/n pieces, $45) by Random Skull Productions and YoClops (50 s/n pieces, $55) from Little Lazies.  On the Dark Side, there’s Muckuss (30 s/n pcs, $65) by Credenda StudiosBounty Hunter (24 s/n pcs, $150) by Manly ArtJob Wars: Unemployed Trooper (20 pcs, $55) and the Boss Vaderus Maximus Pin by DrilOne (100 pcs, $10).

Finally, Dollar $lice Bootlegs Junkie The Krusty Clown (30 s/n pcs, $55) depicts the popular  Simpsons character like never before.
