DKE Toys is one of the biggest, if not the biggest distributor of bootleg toys, and they’re going to be at Power-Con this week with a batch of oddities to sell to collectors looking for some of the strangest toys in the galaxy. Now these aren’t toys, they’re works of art, so I’m assuming that’s how they get around copyright and licensing issues.
Either way, we have a look at the Power-Con offerings, which naturally are heavily rooted in the He-Man and She-Ra universes, which is what Power-Con is all about in the first place.
Most of the bootlegs are Masters of the Universe based, but that does’t mean you’ll find characters from say Star Wars. In fact, there are quite a few in the Galaxy Masters bootleg line, which as you may have guessed are Star Wars inspired characters in the form of the bulky, steroid infused look of He-Man figures. Although, I have to admit that I’m a big fan of Skip (Leg Day) Man too, because he clearly hasn’t squatted in 25 years.
You can check out additional shots of the Power-Con DKE Toy offerings below.
