–>> The preceding piece was done just out of pure kindness by Stan Sakai and for gratis. My favourite works of ALL from Stan are mostly his Yokai Monsters. Being a mysterious entity encountering Usagi and fowling up his travels, or a life & death – one on one battle with a deadly entity of ancient Japanese myth .. ..no one can recreate them in two dimensions quite like Stan. This is the second Kappa he’s ever made for me.
The piece was created last July at SDCC after me personally delivering my submissions for the Sakai Family auction EXTRA INTAKE – extra pieces were taken in after the initial round of auctions to raise additional funds, via **CAPS & ***C.A.F.
I do apologize but Tokka cannot guarantee, at this point – – the availability of the above pieces at this point ( they may have already gone to auction ) but will keep you posted if i am alerted on anything new in regards to the submissions.

- Nick’s much anticipated Bebop & Rocksteady on card appear courtesy of Instagram user Trevino32 ..due this month ( .. first at Walmart stores, other outlets later ). It appears that Bebop has two variants for collectors to geek out while on the lookout; light and darker shades of brown paint on the punk-pig. Rocky’s weapons are a little humorous. There’s also a cute, up-close look at the Bax-Fly and Slash Half-shell Hero offerings. Keep your eyes peeled for the ugly muggs !! !!
