STR WAS: DTH VDR by Mark Todd (marktoddillustration.com / @mark_todd) is hand-sculpted by Mark himself, cast in resin and then he hand painted each one and crafted a cape and saber.

ARTIST BIO: "Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, it's neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and two French Bulldogs, Mr. Pickles and Gherkin."

ARTIST BIO: "Born in the 80s, Killer Bootlegs artist Peter Goral's childhood was saturated with action figures, cartoons, and classic movies. When he was 4 years old, his father showed him a bootleg copy of The Empire Strikes Back. Little did he know that this would start Peter on the path to being at the forefront of the bootleg toy movement. Today, Peter's artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other resin artists to follow in his footsteps. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys."
