Toys are dead, skating's not!... 

ART BASEL might seem like the most unlikely place for a toy release, but in honor of legendary skatepunk artist RICHARD SANCHEZ and the new art book, “Punk is Dead, Punk is Everything,” the new SKATE BAT toy based on his vintage black & white artwork is being debuted at the “Kill Your Idols” punk installation space in Miami’s design district. Created by Kill Your Idols Toys, the 7” tall figure will be released in this original monochrome colorway in a ridiculously small run of FIVE pieces total starting Thursday, December 4th, while a second colorway will be released in a larger run in Spring 2009 at yet-to-be-announced retailers. The venue is located at 3852 N. Miami Ave in Miami’s Design District so diehard collectors best start lining up now. Like, RIGHT now. HAVE A LOOK:
