I’d been away for a 2-Day quick getaway in Batam (where I found and should’ve bought this bootleg Darth Vader Torchlight to “celebrate” this toy-cassion), and had not partaketh of this event … so perhaps I’ll make do with the film’s premiere on December 15, 2017 :)

Priced at US$110 per, this is limited to 50 pieces, signed and numbered on the back of the card.

"From bootleg toys to terrible "art" of dubious quality, there is no type of "artistic" medium I won't shamelessly exploit in my mission to bring a little bit of terribleness into collector's homes far and wide!" (Instagram @specialedtoys)


TRUMP WARS ARCADE CABINET by Timebandits x Special Ed Toys x Carlos Flores are each priced at US$45, in an edition of 25pcs, with each one is signed and numbered by Special Ed. So what exactly the heck is it?
"So Special Ed and Timebandits met this guy Carlos Flores who makes the coolest vintage arcade cabinets that are 3.75" scale. They decided why not make one for Darth Trump to play? Edition of 25. They come boxed with a full color graphics card on top."

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” - Behind The Scenes & Character Posters from D23


Go behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with this "behind the scenes" featurette debuting at the “D23” Disney Expo over the weekend. This is the most visual images seen thus far, since the first teaser (and the unfortunate passing of Carrie Fisher), and no doubt leave fans excited and full of speculation! I’m personally waiting for the “what did we notice” video breakdowns to come online LOL

Hey, Im not knocking any of it, as this is what fuels the lore from generation to the next, IMHO. “Star Wars” is not just about what you saw/see/will-see in the screen in front of you, but of the memories everyone (might) have with it, the dreams fulfilment of many, and the “hopes” for the few, to make a difference in the world, in the universe, even if it meant a video breaking down a featurette, IMHO :)


Featured here are also 6 x character posters (courtesy of @starwars on Twitter), with each individual bathed in red. I am liking the restraint and color-choice for SW8 thus far, a splendid concoction of red, black and white accents - Hey! Just like the TOYSREVIL logo-colors! Heh.

Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi AKA “Episode 8” in theatres December 15th, 2017.

Little did he know that this would start Peter on the path to being at the forefront of the bootleg toy movement. Today, Peter's artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other resin artists to follow in his footsteps. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys."
