Superstar Destroyer by Bill McMullen & A Mini AD-AT Retrospective

Showing a prototype of my new project with #MunkyKing toys ⚡️On display at #DesignerCon booth number 435

A photo posted by Billions McMillions (@billions) on


On display at the recent Designer Con (Nov 19-20, 2016) is the SUPERSTAR DESTROYER from Bill McMullen AKA Billions McMillions - which sees the “Imperial Destroyer” in “Star Wars” being sneakered-out, based on original Adidas Superstars!
Sometimes people ask why I used two whites in the illustration and toy. I point out that that's how the #Shelltoe was - the whites of the leather and the rubber never really matched, which I love. -shared Bill McMullen.
To be produced by Munky King Toys, the concept was earlier seen and released as a 6-color hand-pulled silkscreened print, a year ago at DesignerCon too!



Old-skool "urban vinyl" collectors would be familiar with Bill McMullen’s adidas-themed “AD-AT” - made with Span of Sunset and released in 2004 - which has most recently been manifested as a half-size replica, with #ADATpoint5 released at DesignerCon 2014, a decade after!

Another incarnation saw the ADAT Custom upsized to over 2-feet tall and coming in with a 3 3/4" #Joystik figure. In an edition of 10, they were released at San Diego Comic Con and we promptly Sold Out.

The first AD-AT had been one of my toy-grails since I started down this “art toy” life, and had even came across one a couple of years ago too! The price asked for was pretty reasonable I reckon (about SG$400 maybe?), but alas even then it had been financially out of my reach … *man-sob*





Here's the #Joystik customized figure it comes with... #ADATCustom at #SDCC #StreetHustleStrikesBack

Bill’s AD-AT x adidas iconology was also made into a larger-then-life sized sculpture installation at the THIS IS NOT A TOY show in Toronto, Canada, circa 2014 - as curated by the Design Exchange.
Coincidentally with my AD-AT sculpture showing here in Toronto, the Bata Shoe Museum is having an exhibit called 'The Rise Of Sneaker Culture'. Lots of heat in the 150 or so pairs on display. They have some original Adidas Superstars here, the shoe I based the AD-AT on.

Here are more pics to gawk at!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Featurette & IMAX Poster


This new featurette (Source: @StarWarsUK) sees Director Gareth Edwards and the stars of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY share with folks about their impressions and joy in filming this Star Wars film, and is as effective as most previous clips of scene from the movie itself, have been, IMHO.

We watch it not just for the drama and special effects, but for the nostalgia and feeling that has resided with us, since “Star Wars: A New Hope” … at least for me :)

Here’s a new IMAX poster image for you!

"He's BACK! Not only in the next Christmas block buster movie, but in RESIN form. This RESIN piece mashes together two of my favorite things. SW and JORDANS. STAR WARS MEMORIES + JORDAN 6 INFRAREDS = 'JORADN SITH INFRAREDS’. This is NOT THE FINAL PAINT. The final Resin piece will be MATTE BLACK with color hits on the sneakers to resemble their namesakes and to match the removable RED TRANSLUCENT lightsaber. The DARK SIDE never looked so FRESH!"

DKE TOYS PRESS: ”After a 35 minute sell out of the first edition at NYCC this year, Timebandits x Special Ed Toys decided to make another version. This time in all GOLD befitting a KING!!! What was once a funny mashup of a buffoonish reality TV star and the ultimate symbol of evil in the galaxy is now just a pretty fucking painful reminder that we are all doomed. Doesn't seem funny anymore but they will sell just as quickly. Hand cast and painted 3.75" carded figure. Signed and numbered edition of 25. US$85 tax included.”

Trump Wars - Card Art

DKE TOYS PRESS: ”What do you get when you mash up Janky Toys' Severed Limbs with Special Ed Toys' Protest figures? That's right... The Severed Limbs: Luke Protester. They decided to go green on this figure and make it with 90% less figure. Why? Because they care. Hand cast and painted 3.75" scale carded figure. Signed and numbered edition of 50. US$30 tax included.”

Coming this weekend to the DKE Toys Bootleg Gift Shop is yet another attempt by @jankytoys and (myself) @specialedtoys to try and get our talentless hands on your hard earned money with our very first collab! 😦 With 90% less figure, less than 10% artistic creativity and 100% more puns we "proudly" present "Severed Limbs: Luke Protester"! 👍🏼 And although this may not get as much praise as a highly coveted chromed out uzay fett MOTU mash-up figure, we're hoping it gets one thumbs up from our regularly disappointed fans! Yay! 😀 You can grab yours for a measly $30 (tax included) exclusively at booth #821 💸 *quality sold separately *all sales final *less than zero points of articulation *artwork by the HANDsomely talented @moctoys *jankyness by @jankytoys *terribleness by me #specialedtoys #jankytoys #moctoys #DKEtoys #dealwithdov #dcon #dcon2016 #designertoys #designercon #starwars #lukeskywalker #markhamill #iamyourfather #darthvader #nooooo #bootlegtoys #bootlegactionfigure #bootleg #terrible #comiccon #maytheforcebewithyou
