    Thanks for all the hearty support on this line.
    The message was well sent, and Don and I were talking future stuff.
    They were a smashing success at Dcon and as typically no one will mention here... the "red left hand" contest to win a blind blank red went smooth as well! I was a bit nervous as I though I might have shrunk the heat shrink tubing on over the hand too much, but they all came off nice and the blanks were claimed quickly. No errants.

    Such a great series with endless potential. Glad to grad the 3 pack from Dcon. Individual pics on Instagram.

    @Paulkaiju Shit, I totally spaced the red handed contest! Which is even dumber for me, ‘cause I had to explain to a ton of people for every Reboot I bagged! :lol: Unfortunately, I didn’t see anyone open their red blank blind bags in front me! I was eager to check out that vinyl base!

    It was surprising how fast everyone checked and hit me up right after checking out. I was sort of relieved.

    That DCon trio is such a beautiful set! Paul, phenomenal work on this line. These could easily be classic Barom-1 villains manifested in bootleg form, but with that extra PK personal touch. You've wonderfully straddled the two 'genres' (if you will), where these fit in with your many other toys, but also the vintage Popy-sized characters. Got to admit to some jealousy over not having been able to snag a set, but I am just so happy to see a great reception for them.

    This is going to result in some absolutely killer one-off paint jobs

    Adding to the history of these, they were previewed back in 2013 and were put on the back burner for quite sometime. As Cory (Science Patrol) put it, I'm happy to see Datadub making toys again.

    It actually was a pretty good drop! I think it sold out 43 minutes later from when it dropped.

    Yeah, 43 minutes would’ve been long enough for me to take a nap and still make the purchase!

    Same. These guys went super quick, and I admit I was super bummed to not have been able to score any of these great Reboot dudes. The disco vibe of the line makes them so much fun, and being in love with the vintage ones, this new revival has me more excited about the project than a new toy group in a long while. Congrats to all those who got luck with this one!

    @Paulkaiju Ah, sorry. That was the time you posted "Sold Out" so it makes sense it sold out much faster. They were great pieces!

    Yeah, I was tracking these, and really wanted them. There's something so considered about the paint development over the series on these sets that had really drawn me in. I think something beyond, "oh we gotta paint a new batch..." That and the simplicity. Anyone who has done life drawing will know how hard it is to leave out detail, but again the consideration in the form of these is great.

    Pity twice now I've had to have the boiler fixed and just when shit drops. So just saying guys....cat guy...you know...I'm game...shiiit is that the boiler again.

    I tried for these, but German internet is hot garbage so by the time the site loads it’s already sold out usually.

    I love how shiny these look

    The boots and hands remind me of those Mexican luchadores that just get dipped in the paint. No brush, just a nice dunk for hands and toes

    these are so much fun

    Paul actually does dip them for that bootleg feel. He does IG live videos of the process from time to time
