DKE’s Comic-Con exclusives have proved so popular that for the second year in a row, we’ve opted to give the distributor of urban designer vinyl toys and collectibles its own master post, with all of its announced SDCC exclusives in one location for our readers’ convenience. But really, it’s so everyone doesn’t have to go very far to drool over the fantastic vinyl designs the company whips up for this year.
The real question for this year is – will anything top last year’s C-3P-HO figure?
We’ll update this post with the DKE announcements as they are released. With that said, bring on the vinyl!
[UPDATE July 7] DKE isn’t done after all. They’ve just announced that they’ll have 90s Vader by DrilOne. The piece is a hand painted and customized Darth Vader helmet, with only one in existence. It will retail for $2500 and you can come see it in person at DKE Booth #5045.
[UPDATE July 6] This is the final DKE announcement, though they will have a few additional items in their booth at Comic-Con, including a replicate Darth Vader helmet customized by DrilOne. But now, onto the last exclusive, which is a Django Uncloned Bobtype Edition by Good For You Toys. The hand cast and painted 3 and 3/4″ resin figure is a limited edition of 30, and will retail for $60.
[UPDATE July 5] DKE has unveiled Attackers of the Missing Stuff S.U.C.K.L.E. figure, based on one of Sucklord’s early figures from Raiders. The resin only figure comes with a flesh colored version as well, and bagged with a header card. The piece is limited to 100 and will retail for $30.

[UPDATE July 1] In yesterday’s craziness, we didn’t get a chance to update with DKE’s exclusive, so let’s make amends now. They’ll be bringing out Return of the Tar-Martian by Falcontoys, which is a hand cast and painted 3 and 3/4″ carded figure based loosely on the Mars Attack Alien. The set is limited to 15 pieces, and will be available for $85 each.

This piece includes a custom orange tinted wind screen, custom seats, three different hood design decals to choose from, and more. The piece is a limited edition of 30, and will retail for $200. We’re calling it: Not quite as good as last year’s C-3P-HO figure.
