With over 25 years of international experience in puppetry, Edwin Salas began his adventure in toy-art when he arrived in the United States in 2017. As a child growing up in Costa Rica, Edwin did not have the luxury of having toys and relied on his imagination for play. As an adult, he works to rectify this hole in his past by utilizing his creativity to invent toy-art inspired by pop culture of the many countries he has lived in throughout his life. Edwin has different lines of toys such as “Salas Wars”, “Saddest Children of the Forest”, “Horror Figures” and “Mexican Bootlegs”. In a world overrun with plastic, Edwin utilizes his background as a puppeteer to sculpt toys from wood. His toys have recently been featured by DKE Toys in Comicons around the US. If you are interested in any of the toys featured on this website you can claim them by emailing Edwin directly.
SALAS WARS is a line of bootleg toy-art inspired by WARS OF STARS but reimagined with a bit of humor and irony. The first piece of SALAS WARS was the Storm Trooper, created in wood, and is not featured in the “Art Wars Collection” in Warsaw, Poland. But the saga continued with the commission from DKE Toys, for the San Diego Comicon, of 40 pieces of “Boba Wood” with a real spring loaded rocket like the legendary Kenner figure of the 70s. Among this line of bootleg toy-art includes figures such as: “Iga8 - The Carving Droid”, “Soy Tu Padre” (I’m Your Father), “The Cantina Guys” and thousands and thousands more!
