Meet Boglins Designer Tim Clarke at Retro Con 2022!

Tim Clarke 2022 3b

We welcome toy and puppet designer Tim Clarke back for Retro Con 2022! Once known as the “King of Gross” due to his penchant for inventing toys with wonderfully grotesque designs and gimmicks, Tim is the co-creator of cult favorite 80’s toylines Sectaurs and Boglins!

Though we might have to promote Boglins from “cult toyline” back to full “hit toyline”, because they’ve been back in full force for the past year and a half. In fact Tim sold out of his entire stock of Boglins by early Saturday afternoon at the show last year, having to rely on stock from another vendor to keep him going. A good problem to have!

Tim started his career designing and building puppets for the Jim Henson Company, most notably the Mystics and Slaves he sculpted and designed for The Dark Crystal. He also worked on puppets for Sesame Street, the Muppet Show, and for Fraggle Rock where he created Traveling Matt!

Tim will be at Retro Con both days, and you can find him in Row 1 at the show. He’s hoping to have the upcoming “Bat Boglins” ready to go by then, and possibly new surprises!
