Warner Brothers x Funko – Marvin the Martian: Space Clones Custom Show for SDCC

Sket_SpaceClones-2

Marvin the Martian fans (and who isn’t ?) will want to be sure to drop by the Funko Pop Up Shop at the Funko SD offices during SDCC (7.20-7.23).  Warner Brothers and Funko have collaborated on a custom art show featuring artist customs of the 9” DIY Space Clones Mega Dorbz vinyl of our favorite Martian. A quick browse on IG revealed a diverse group of artists with a few names well known to art toy fans—Sket One (above) and Shiffa, at least one comic book superstar—Jim Lee, and a nice selection of artists from various backgrounds including Karol Banach, Mel Copes, Shamsia Hassani, Sonny Liew, Kristen Liu-Wong, Love Each Other, Nikkiciri, Kerby Rosanes, Gustavo Rimada, Vivian Ritter,Marc Sandoval, Sonny Boy, Turan (@sonertattooer) and Tasya van Ree.

Hit the jump for a quick preview of the pieces we spotted.   The Space Clones customs will be auctioned off to benefit CalArts’ scholarship programs.   

The show fits nicely into the cartoon-centric Funko Pop Up which will feature a large number of exclusives including Pop! versions of Marvin and Duck Dodgers. For more info, check out the Funko Blog which breaks down the exclusive action: part one and part two.

Ah yes, now we come to THE question… Will Space Clones be released as a DIY vinyl after the show?  No definitive answer yet, but seems quite possible.
