Six Months in the making and finally âDragons Custom Toy Showâ is 2 weeks away!
Dragons Custom Toy Show is the creation of UK Toy Collector Andy Kelly (Zombiekel) who wanted to bring together some of the UKâs greatest artist in a single platform show and raise some money for charity at the same time.
Due to the show being held in Wales, UK and the Dragon being their National Emblem, together with 2012 being the Year of the Dragon the show was to named âDragonsâ and then of course the chosen Platform had to be the Kidrobot Munnyworld Kracka!
The show opens at 6pm (GMT+1) on Saturday August 18th at The Sho Gallery in Cardiff, Wales, UK (www.thesho.co.uk) with all the custom pieces on sale to take away that night.
If you cannot attend but wish to buy a custom then you can call the gallery between 6pm & 9pm (GMT +1) whilst the show is on and reserve & pay over the phone via credit card.
The remaining customs will be available on Monday August 20th at 8pm (GMT+1) online where they are currently for preview only http://thesho-case.com/73-dragons
