DSF presents Arik Ehle's "Dark Instincts" solo exhibition!!!

Arik Ehle of Wild WestSide is stoked to be showcasing a ton of new work in his 'Dark Instincts' show that explores the juxtaposition of primal struggles in the natural world with the darker side of the human condition. Taking place at DSF in San Francisco, the series is comprised of entirely faux taxidermy sculptures with an edgy, urban twist. The pieces blend realism and caricature with a flavor of the Wild West and West Coast lifestyle.
Opening on Saturday, June 6th from 7pm-11pm at DSF, there will also be 50+ limited edition and one of a kind resin pieces available, including a special 'DSF' San Francisco edition of the OG Impala MINI (edition of only 10)... as seen above!

"Severed Limbs" by JankyToys might just be the best bootleg series ever...

In the designer toy scene, you see alot of ideas and projects regurgitated over and over again... and most of the time, with each iteration, they get more and more bland... well, in the case of this brand new bootleg resin toy series from JankyToys, they took an idea from a specific property and completely flipped it on it's head... reinventing the bootleg toy in a very clever way. introducing the "Severed Limbs" series... and they are just that... resin cast severed limbs, HAHAH!!!

Retailing for just $20 a piece or $100 for the entire set of 6, these are available for pre-order HERE right now and are limited to 10 each plus 10 full sets. Each figure is of the movie dismemberment... so, for example, Count Dooku comes with both his hands and his head, Darth Maul is the legs, C-3PO will be a different random part for each order because that dude has lost every limb possible, etc... so awesome! Want in on this??? HEad on over to snag these up right now, as we don't see these lasting very long!
