Evilos Presents Boba Fett with Card

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We saw Evilos tweet some pictures of his latest creation so we asked him about the project and his love of Star Wars.

“A lot of my work gravitates towards many things I enjoyed as a kid, Star Wars being one of them. Mickey in Carbonite was one of my early customs made before Star Wars Series One was even released by Disney. When I was a kid, I played with Star Wars figures all the time. Like most kids from my generation our youth revolved around toys, circa 1980’s. So being a Star Wars collector I’ve had a few of these card backs from Comic Con and thought to myself hey why not repackage these vinylmation into a vintage style looking toy. The challenge for me was finding custom made bubbles and cutting out a seamless spots for the ears to pop out of, so not to damage the overall look of the vinylmation. My early carded Star Wars customs, I needed to cut the ears down so they would fit. This drew most of the criticism from that series so I’m happy I was able to figure out how to keep the ears and still make it look like these were produced many years ago.
I most likely will be producing more of these and have some for trade. I would urge collectors who can make it to come out to the trading night at Disneyland Feb.16th to see these in person and maybe trade up for one. I have no real plans to sell these but I do have the Boba Fett up for auction at the moment, so If you want something unique I would ask fans to check it out:

Thank you. Evilos”

How is this anything great? Its just like the title says Boba Fett with Card… I guess I just don’t get what is so great about it and why it needs an article on here.

I think evilos is overrated, but u cannot deny his impact on this hobby. His creativity is unmatched even when compared to the disney artists

If “His creativity is unmatched even when compared to the disney artists” then why is he using the Disney Artists’ work with just his own packaging? It just seems like a gimick to make a quick buck to me.

I don’t really see any custom artist impacting the hobby like the Disney Artist do. I mean really, how many of us would know of evilos if it weren’t for the Disney Artists coming up with Vinylmations.

As for Andy Warhol, I’m not sure he ever took someone else’s art and repackaged it. :-S

Certainly not. I mean, he invented the Campbell’s Soup packaging, right?

Art (beauty) is in the eye of the beholder. Steven is entitled to his opinion and so is everyone else. I’m a huge star wars and vinylmation fan and I think these look great. He added his custom accessories to the vinyl and carded it. He took his ideas and went with it. How many people you see do that? Anyways, not everyone will like what others do, but at least respect them. Keep doing what you’re doing evilos!!

Evilos is one of the most creative artists out there. His innovation and concepts to the vinylmation world competes with the best if not beats them. I understand Stevens argument, but you can say that about many other things in the world. Many inventions in the world are constantly enhanced to perform or appear better than the original concept. In this case Evilos added a few things that make Star Wars figures pop out at you and have a retro feel with the packaging. Everyone’s entitled to their own point of view, but i personally love the artistic genius of… Read more »

I’m not sure if you’re joking or not, but that is the epitome of Warhol’s work right there. He was a POP artist. He used familiar iconography and put it on a canvas, taking it out of a mundane setting an putting it in a gallery.
Also, jealous much?

For my money, if we’re looking at “overrated” artists, I’m voting for Noah. I’m a Southern California girl myself, but it doesn’t mean I think that everything should look like something that gets airbrushed onto the side of a van or a fairground T-Shirt. We have a couple of Evilos’ customs, and I lurve. I guess it boils down to the old adage – “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, grouse about it in forums and comment threads”.

Evilos reminds me of Mr. Brainwash’s work. He grabs other artists work, slaps some paint on it and then calls it his own. I understand how Steven feels. I guess this news article would have been better if Evilos actually made his version of Star Wars characters not just grab an other artist work, repackage it and then sell it.

If you are a true collector and avid Star Wars fan you will understand why this item is considered art and the true value it holds. To a figuring collect, packaging and accuracy are extremely important. The Vinylmation’s blind box holds no value since it can neither display the figure nor guaranty that the specific item is inside. To remove the item from its packaging decreases the value and exposes it to damage. What Evilos has done is exactly what collectors want. He has created a safe and TOTALLY ROCKIN collectible package and if you can’t figure that out, you… Read more »

For those of you who are saying that Evilos has no talent or creativity, just look up his “Bricked Up” , “Pirates Diorama” or “Tron LED Illuminated” customs, just to name a few. Those are some of the best customs out there, because they puch the envelope and add elements that most vinylmation artists (Disney or otherwise) hadn’t used before.

Thank you man, I didn’t want to say it myself. Im glad someone had the guts to bring up some of my other works. But yes to insinuate im a fraud or fake artist was very low.

I can’t believe what a debate this has become. One of the reason I collect vinyls is for the enjoyment I get from collecting vinyls is the fellow collectors I have met (Chris is one of them). I love how this site profiles other people’s talents with custom vinylmation as well as other artist work. I would hope that if people don’t have anything nice to say about the Custom artist(s) profiled on this site that they would keep it to themselves. These artist have been nice enough to share their creations with us and this site is nice enough… Read more »
