James Groman Brings His Twisted Art Style To DC Collectibles As Next DC Artists Alley Designer

Hours before the DesignerCon 2018 show floor opens, superstar designer toy artist James Groman revealed via Instagram his monstrous reimaginings of Batman and his Rogues Gallery for his upcoming DC Artists Alley designer vinyl collaboration with DC Collectibles.

Groman is best known for his outlandish designs as seen in many of his works including the highly popular Madballs toy series. Groman now brings his signature art style to the DC Universe and offers his terrifying spin on Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face as 7”-scale designer vinyl figures. The figures are designed and sculpted by the artist and will be on display at this weekend’s DesignerCon convention in Anaheim, CA, at the DC Collectibles booth (#1500). 

“When DC Collectibles asked me to design and sculpt my own renditions of DC’s iconic Dark Knight and a few of his villainous adversaries, I was excited and intrigued,” said Groman. “Growing up, I wasn’t as big a fan of costumed heroes like most of my friends and was usually drawn to characters like Swamp Thing, Monster of Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night. With that said, I’ve always been a Batman fan, mostly because of his dark nature and origins, and he has THE BEST villains. Working with Jim Fletcher and Trevor Zammit at DC Collectibles on these figures has been so creatively satisfying! It was interesting to see just how far we could take the designs but still remain respectful of each character’s basic DNA. I can only hope this collection leads to even more collaborations with DC Collectibles.”

Groman’s DC Artists Alley designer vinyls will hit stores in October 2019 and are available to preorder now. DesignerCon attendees at this weekend’s convention can take home a custom art print and enamel pin designed by Groman. 

DC Artists Alley Designer Vinyls by James Groman:

– Characters: Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face
– All figures are designed and sculpted by James Groman
– Size: 7” scale
– MSRP: $65.00 each
– Each character is limited to 3,000 pieces
– On sale October 2019

Dumbo Flies Off For $483,000 In $8.3 Million Disneyland Auction

An auction of Disneyland theme park vehicles, props and artifacts that turned into a Los Angeles attraction in its own right raised more than $8.3 million, organizers said on Monday.

An original Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride car sold for $483,000 (this was purchased by Drew Carey) – more than four times the pre-sale estimate – while magician David Copperfield nabbed a neon letter D from the Disneyland hotel for $86,250, auctioneers Van Eaton Galleries said.

The 900-item collection was so vast that organizers and collector Richard Kraft staged a “That’s From Disneyland” public exhibit for the month of August in a former sporting goods store in suburban Los Angeles that was visited by tens of thousands of people. One couple even got married there.

Kraft, a Hollywood agent, began collecting 25 years ago spurred by nostalgia for his visits with his late brother to Disneyland in southern California. He kept many of the items, including the Dumbo car, in his own home.

“When I finally decided to let it go it became much more about throwing a grand Bon Voyage party to those magical artifacts than about making projections about their worth,” Kraft said in a statement after the two-day sale at the weekend.

“I’m still in a state of shock that Dumbo, Jose the talking parrot and trash cans from Disneyland could make me feel as if I won the lottery,” he added.

Jose, an animatronic bird from the Tiki Room, sold for $425,000 and the auction shattered several records for Disneyland posters and theme park signs. A Skyway gondola original vehicle from the 1950s, which sold for $621,000, set a new auction record for a Disneyland ride, Van Eaton Galleries said.

Kraft said he will donate a portion of the proceeds to two organizations benefiting children who, like his 4-year-old daughter Daisy, suffer from the rare genetic disorder Coffin-Siris Syndrome, and other special needs.
