For your enjoyment, DKE has created #DKECON to fill the gaping hole in your cancelled convention season. The pandemic has provided the unusual opportunity of inviting everyone we know to our San Diego Comic-Con “booth”. Finally, we can enjoy all the bootleg style designer toys in the palm of your hands without having to set foot at SDCC!

Hold on to your seats as they bring resin bootleg style art figures from around the world! Into bootleg style designer toys? DKE has your back at Dcon 2019! As always, DKE at the forefront of spreading the bootleg resin movement to the masses. Like we have said on many occasions, DKE Toys doesn’t mess around when it comes to working with independent art toy releases from across the world.

Today we present to you the second motherload!

Battle Tribe: Storm Trooper Operator by Rendar Art

Hand cast and painted 3.75″ scale carded resin figure
Signed and numbered edition of 25


$80


Instagram @mattrendar


This is the first time we are showing figures by Rendar Art. Matt Rendar aka Matthew Klein specializes in customizing production figures in modern military garb. There are a lot of straight-up customizers out there and they likely existed in greater numbers before the “bootleggers” but he does them in such amazing detail and in such cool custom packaging that we couldn’t pass these up. 


Matt has an interesting story. He was always a creative guy. His father was an animator for Walt Disney and Warner Brothers, but Matt never saw art as a career. After 9/11 he joined the army and served two tours in Iraq receiving a purple heart. Upon his return, he became a forensics officer for the NYPD. But because of his ability to draw, he found his way to another department and is now one of only three NYPD sketch artists.

Bio: Joshua James Grossberg’s love of toys started him experimenting with molding and casting at a very early age. His first carded toy, a take on the DC character ‘Proty’, met with some success and encouraged him to take his art further. After two years of trial and error, perfecting his craft, he started Joshua’s Toybox and began to explore the resin toy community. His first official release ‘Mr. Evil Mind’, sold out at Designer Con 2017. Joshua’s work has been called “gorgeous”, “cool” and “clever.” His 2018 release, ‘Assistant Copy Boy Luke’, was reviewed on The Suckhour: Episode 44.
