DKE Toys is going to have a fantastic line-up of New York Comic Con exclusive resin figures this year at their NYCC booth #678, which includes this awesome new figure by Junk Fed! What’s really crazy is the NYCC 2017 Exclusive Space Madness Mirror Universe Spocktrooper will be the final installment of Junk Fed’s Space Madness series. Space Madness, a distillation of sci-fi, pop culture commonalities, began its three year mission on June 20, 2014 with the release of the Imperial Spocktrooper. So it's only fitting that Junk Fed closes the series with his evil counterpart, the Mirror Universe Imperial Spocktrooper.
The Mirror Universe version of our favorite Star Trek Vulcan is a hand cast and painted 3.75” tall carded resin figure. Limited to just 20 pieces, this signed and numbered release will retail for $80.
“Goonies never say die!” Later today, Mondo will be releasing a fun new poster for the 1985 adventure film The Goonies by George Bletsis! As the artist explained, “I’m absolutely overjoyed to have work on a Goonies piece! My main aim when coming up with the concept for the poster was to try and capture how grand the adventure facing the kids is, and to convey the feeling that the spirit of One-eyed-Willy is looming large over everything they do. I tackled this almost as if I were designing The Goonies as an animated series, so I worked with a really limited palette, focused on the bold shapes of the landscape, and tried to keep the kids silhouettes strong and recognizable.”
The Goonies by George Bletsis is an 18”x24” hand numbered screen print. The Regular Edition is limited to 275 pieces and will retail for $45, while the Variant is limited to 125 pieces and will retail for $60. Both versions will go on sale at a random time today, Friday, September 29th, at the Mondo online store.
Today, Friday, September 29th, Buff Monster is releasing three one of a kind custom vinyl figures! First up are two old school 3” Buff Monster Figures. Each hand painted 3” figure features a nice gloss coat and comes signed and dated by Buff. These two go on sale at 10am EST at StayMelty.com for $250 each.
Buff’s third release is this epic hand painted 8” custom Dunny! This figure was actually painted by Buff a couple years ago. He rarely paints toys like this anymore, so it's a real unique piece. Since it’s too hard to put a price on this custom Buff Monster 8” Dunny, the artist is going to try something new: a silent email auction. Beginning at 10am EST today and continuing for 24 hours, collectors can email their bid to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to make it a good one though, as the highest bidder wins!

DKE Toys is going to have an awesome line-up of New York Comic Con exclusive resin figures this year at their NYCC booth #678, including two killer pieces by RYCA! First up is this fantastic “Recycle the Giant” resin figure, which mashes up the WWE’s Andre the Giant with OBEY GIANT’s “Andre the Giant has a Posse” sticker. RYCA was disappointed that Andre never got a chance to wear his own shirt, so he’s recycled the famous street art campaign into a collectible resin figure. Reminiscent of the Hasbro WWF figures from the 1990s, “Recycle the Giant” by RYCA is a hand cast and painted 5” carded figure.

RYCA’s second New York Comic Con 2017 exclusive is this amazing Ghostbusters resin figure, The Stay Fresh Man! RYCA had such a huge success at SDCC with Wampapi that he had to make more BIG STUFF. Stay Fre$h is a hustler from the mean streets of 80's NYC. After getting blasted by four guys in '84, he never goes anywhere without his vest. Each The Stay Fresh Man figure is almost 1.5 pounds of resin on hand silk screened and laser cut card backs. Limited to just 30 pieces, each hand cast and painted 6” carded figure comes signed and numbered and retails for $80.
Little Lazies’ adorable line of clay Star Wars figures continues with this super cute New York Comic Con 2017 Exclusive Lucky Chew 2” figure! Who knew Chewbacca would look so good as a Lucky Cat? What’s truly amazing is that each piece is hand sculpted by Leah Lester of Little Lazies, so no two are exactly the same! It’s really hard to imagine that they aren't resin casts. Limited to 35 pieces, each Lucky Chew comes signed and numbered and carded on a full color blister card. Collectors can purchase one at the DKE Toys NYCC booth for $55.

Mighty Jaxx’ gnarliest figure, Vomit Kid by OKEH, is back with his signature butt pimples and pile of glowing puke! As OKEH explained, “Vomit Kid started from an idea that my artworks are a mere discharge of the filth contained in my head. Some may find them beautiful while others don’t, but the world itself is already filled with dirt on the hands of many individuals. I have to keep discharging and working on my art even if I do not want to do so. Vomit Kid is a reflection of both my being and what the world is to me.”
The Vomit Kid White Edition Vinyl Figure by OKEH stands 8” tall, features glow in the dark puke, and is cast in soft Japanese vinyl. After first debuting at STGCC 2017, collectors can now purchase this awesome figure at the Mighty Jaxx online store for $80.
