Darth Trump by TIMEBANDITS x Special Ed Toys
Cue The Imperial March music! A Trump Wars collab from a galaxy far, far away... If you happened to be at New York Comic Con Oct 6-9, hopefully you were able to check out Darth Trump at the DKE Toys Booth #423. We were blown away and very grateful that it sold out on opening day. If you weren't able to make NYCC, we got you covered. We'll be dropping a limited amount of APs in our store very soon.

More about DKE Toys...
DKE Toys does about 4 conventions a year in which artists from all over the world create limited artist edition figures. Each piece is generally made out of hand poured resin and many are hand painted on custom printed (and sometimes hand drawn) card backs. Sometimes as many as 20 different artists participate in a given show. Many have commented that the DKE booth at these various shows look like a small art exhibition. While these figures are generally referred to as "bootlegs" they are far from pirated versions of mass marketed toys. Each of these artists use transformative properties in their work to communicate ideas that are often political, parody, or commentary about the pop culture world we live in. Also please do not be confused by the word "toy". These are works of art!!! Do not give to a child to play with. They will break, get ruined, and hurt your children physically and emotionally. DKE also acquires other limited edition figures from artists that are not exclusives so please stop by to see any unannounced specials.
