Tracy Tubera - Maximum Effort Deadpool Resin + Thriller Pin for DesignerCon



We’ve come to expect a kicks-infused cinematic resin from Tracy Tubera each year as DesignerCon rolls around.  Walt, Future Boy, Jordan sith… and …  now Maximum Effort, Tracy’s take on the not-so-serious but 100% kick butt Deadpool. We kinda doubt Tracy has to psych himself up with a little mantra over and over again ala Wade Wilson, but hey whatever works.  The new light-hearted resin homage is a collaboration with partners-in-crime Mana Sutdios and features Jordan 4’s—Tracy digs comics but he’s all about the kicks.  We’re looking forward to the full reveal, should be any day now.

In addition to his new art toy, Tracy’s also upping his pin game with a gnarly Thriller pin done with the folks at Reppin. And yes, it’s GID.  But of course!  Find these new drops and a strong selection of prints at Tracy’s booth [#320].

DKE – Designer Con 2017 Reveal #1

unnamed (1)


If you love bootleg art action figures, DKE has you covered once again at  DesignerCon [booth 812].  As usual, they are breaking up their massive list of releases into parts, three this time.  Here’s the first grouping which features some very interesting toys.

Let’s start with the third and last—boo!—Star Wars-themed figure from Mark Todd. STR WAS: DTH VDR (3.75”, 30 s/n pcs, $55) has a crazy, eclectic sculpt which nicely captures the artist’s drawing style as seen on the sweet backing card.  With Halloween just around the corner, Freddy Frett (3.75”, 30 s/n pcs, $65) by Credenda Studios is quite timely. Staying with the frightful, the twisted mind of Wolf Pits brings us the Preacher Creature (4”, 25 s/n pieces, $55).   While bootleggers tend to focus on a few beloved cinematic franchises, it’s nice to see something a bit out ouf the box such as A Life Day Story—with Apologies to Ralphie—by Buzzard Guts.  Finally we’ll close things out with Scum & Villainy – Wretched Ball by UME Toys (3”, 20 s/n pcs, $65) featuring a fun OG sculpt.

Itokin Park -- Brand New Astronaut at DesignerCon

22638779_158529044743515_4638513651173556224_n (2)

Oooh.  The Sour Lemon has announced that Itokin Park will release a brand-new super spacey sofubi figure at their DesignerCon booth [#1700].  While we don’t have an official name yet, the new toy, seen here in a blue test shot, adds a bit of edge to the cosmic cute of Itokin’s previous Astronaut and Space Mode Man figures.

With a determined face and what appear to be power/mechanical arms, this explorer means business. While not immediately obvious in the blue test shot photos, a close-up pic from Itokin’s IG shows off the increased mechanical detail in the new sculpt including tech bits on the helmet collar. Plus, looks like there will be an inner collar sticker with more tech details.

Oh, and did we mention? Articulated arms.  Unlike the two previous astronauts, you’ll be able to pose this toy.  Also going off the pic, it looks like this one might be a bit taller than the previous figures with an elongated helmet.
