NYCC is Feb 6th - 8th MORE MORE MORE !!

Carnival Cartoons (Booth #964) makes their presence known at NYCC with a special exclusive release of Pierce & Nathan. A perfect purple pair to go with your Buzz and Harnett figures. What’s that? You don’t have those figures? Feel free to contact DKE Toys if you are interested in acquiring these figures to complete your set. The exclusive Pierce & Nathan figures are limited to 100 pieces. If you hadn't already noticed Pierce is rockin’ a new t-shirt, which will be unique to each colorway. Also be careful when going through a metal detector because Pierce also has real piercings.

About Pierce & Nathan: "Pierce and Dogboy are the Carney family mischief makers! Pierce is the quintessential bratty younger brother, and Dogboy is Pierce's pal, a loving pet, and... a fur covered wingman! Pierce relishes his gross-out gig as "The Human Pincushion" in the family sideshow act. (He's got more holes than a boardwalk putt-putt course). When Dogboy isn't doing double duty as the family's household hound, and Pierce's partner in crime, he wows the crowds at Barker's sideshow with his furry face and outrageous animal antics!"

Sharing their booth with kaNO, Carnival Cartoons will have on hand skatedecks, prints, plus resin figures available to all. Pierce The Human Pin Cushion stands about 5.5” tall & Nathan The Dog-Faced boy stands about 4” tall. The set comes signed with a mini print. More pictures of this carni family after the jump.

REDRUM Sharky by Frank Kozik

Dun Dun! Dun Dun! Redrum! Redrum! Redrum! Dun Dun! Dun Dun!” When you hear the “Redrum” chanting, you know he is around the corner, ready to jump out of the water and pounce. When you hear that sound, you should start swimming back toward the shore. Turn your boat around the other way! Flee from the sound you hear! The RedRum Sharky is swimming your way, coming to hunt you down. With a bloody bone in his mouth, nothing can stop him from making you his next meal. You can’t run away from him. With adaptable feet, he can still come after you on dry land. If you hear him break down your door and say “HERE’S SHARKY!!!”, we can only pray you make it out alive!

It is a new release from Frank Kozik, using Keith Poon's Sharky! Frank has possessed the innocent Sharky and has turned him insane! Look for the trail of blood leading exclusively to ToyQu

Would love this too .. but it's $300 ..
one of only 200 pieces ..

12" Smokey by Frank Kozik

Smokey, 12-inch Unfiltered version.

Your best and ONLY friend!

Smokey is finally fully-realized in 12-inch glory. This rotocast soft vinyl fuming behemoth of a toy comes with a removable smork, a giant ego, and only the slightest hint of irony.

From who else, but Frank Kozik!

The perfect centerpiece for your toy collection, corporate coverups, or Thanksgiving dinner - Smokey is your friend at whatever event or place you could need him!
