Featured below, is “Mavi Krom Uzay” by RYCA, with this conversation of the piece’s genesis going like this;
""Hey Ryan can you send me one of those blue Uzay figures I saw online the other day?" Reply: "I am sending you a bunch of them with some other chase figures included. Oh yeah and you can price them at $45 each." WTF x2!!! Hand cast and painted 3.75" resin figures on silk screened card back.
Figure is based on the original bootleg "Uzay" Turkish toys .... The most famous being the blue stars, a blue Snow Trooper. Mavi Krom Uzay is a Turkish translation of "blue chrome stars”."
ABOVE: “Wars Not Make One Great” by Free Humanity features hand customized 3.75″ scale figures and includes a paint bucket and roller. Each card back has been hand stenciled, splattered and signed and numbered out of 50 pieces. This is the second and final edition in dark pink.
"The previous edition sold out earlier this year at SDCC. A Free Humanity stencil on a canvas would be at least 10 times as much money in a gallery. These will not last long. Wars Not Make One Great by Free Humanity $100 tax included." (MORE pics HERE on #starwarsallday)

"Back in 1977 Topps Trading cards actually released a trading card with this golden phallus to unsuspecting children. How it got there is a source of some speculation. Prank on the set or irate employee no one quite knows or at least no one is fessing up to it."
