We recently received an e-mail detailing the latest bootleg fan art resin toy from buzzard guts and DAMarx toys. It is a Star Wars/Marvel mash-up that uses Kenners 1977 protocol droids as a base for popular Marvel characters. 3.75″ resin figures hand cast and hand painted by DAM and mounted on a sturdy 6″x9″ cardback with beautiful illustrations by Ryan Winn, one of the creators of Valiant comics. Each card features a homage to classic Marvel comic covers by Jack Kirby, Bob Layton and Todd McFarlane. There are 4 figures in the set. The Cybot Avengers features C3-PO as Iron Man and the Captain, while RA-7(death star droid) mutates into Hulk and Spidey. (Star Wars fans might reference Cybot Galactica, the company responsible for manufacturing these protocol droid models.) This 1st edition series is limited to 20 figures being 5 of each or 5 sets. Dropping exclusively HERE Friday February 24th at 7pm eastern standard. They are $40 each or $150 for the set. Save $10 when you buy the set.
