Disart ToyLabs once again partners with a fantastic artist, in this instance tattooist AshMadeThis, to unleash something creative and unexpected: the “Bartholio” custom bootleg! Inspired by Ash’s hugely popular pin badge design of the same name, the hilarious mash-up of iconic ′90s cartoons has been booted by Disart’s Tru:Tek from a vintage 4″ Beavis bendy toy, coming with an originally sculpted Bart head from none other than NolanJP. Produced at the Disart ToyLabs in both resin and rubber, we bring you a quick rundown of the different versions that’ll initially be up for grabs…
Bartholio “OG Hand Paint” edition: Cast up in a hard resin, these have been painstakingly hand painted by Ash to match the colours of the original bendy toy release (albeit with bright yellow skin!), each coming with a unique metal-tinged slogan scrawled across the front of the tee. Coming bagged with a custom header from Ash inspired by the official backer art, these will be up for grabs at £25 a piece.
Bartholio “Naked Bart” and “Naked Beavis” jumbo keshi editions: Coming in a keshi-style rubber, these playable versions have been produced in yellow and flesh inspired by both Simpsons and Beavis & Butthead skin tones. Once again coming packed with a custom header from Ash, these have been priced at just £10 each.
Debuting in limited numbers at the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Con this Saturday, July 19th, open pre-orders for all 3 versions will be up for grabs from the AshMadeThis web-store the following Monday, July 21st, 2014. Stay tuned for more variants and exclusive editions coming soon!
