Oasim Karmieh of KARMIEH TOY DESIGN Presents Darth Bear STOP WARS Edition

The man with a plan, Oasim Karmieh is back and filling the void of his love of the classic Star Wars! working his magic to present to you Darth BEAR! Darth Vader-inspired character which features a big chunky frame which we love and think the style works well, especially with that Darth mix of helmet in Space Balls plush with a splash of Vader, HA. Less of us rambling, check out the BTS on how Darth Bear was made HERE.

Why should I even bear all this nonsense!

I really hope you enjoyed the short story about Darth Bear. I have been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a kid, and it has always been a part of what makes me a designer. You might know the BOBO FATE super limited edition series that I have created, the latest one being the BOBOLORIAN and baby YO 

Now the idea behind Darth Vader is that I wanted to create an outstanding Darth Vader-inspired character. Still, I didn’t just want to make a chibi version or a kid version or a fat version. Instead, I wanted to design a piece that could hold its own weight, no pun intended.

I love designing heavy toys. You might know the URSOS piece I created and sculpted last year. Being a chubby dude myself, or how my lovely daughter likes to call me “Big Fella”. I wanted to design a toy with these characteristics Heavy, Bear, Star Wars, and fantastic. 

Initially started with the helmet, cause I wanted to get that right first, capturing the Darth Vader helmet and making it work for a bear wasn’t easy, when I did the first sculpt, I wanted it to be more like the helmet in Space Balls (fans of the movie will know what I mean) – Oasim

The first 10 orders will receive an A4 hand-signed framed print of the Darth Bear sketch.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far,
