You know him… you love him… you cannot escape him! Boba Fett has been a dominant fixture in the art toy world since it’s explosion in 2004. That iconic helmet and armor have been a gateway for toy and resin artists from all over the world, and now DKE is cracking open it’s vaults for a vast and varied peek at 20 different artists’ take on the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy!
Toy sculptor, Fett enthusiast, and semi-regular guest host George Gaspar (@doublegtoys) joins Dov Kelemer and the DKE Crew (@jankytoys & @barbarian_rage) as they explore the wonderful world of bootleg Mandalorians, from groan worthy puns to works of fine art. A perfect jumping on point for anyone curious about the bootleg and art toy scene!
