Meet Boglins and Sectaurs Creator Tim Clarke at Retro Con 2018!

August 3, 2018 Leave a comment

 

We welcome toy and puppet designer Tim Clarke to our guest list for Retro Con 2018! 

 

For over 30 years Tim has been inventing, designing and sculpting some of the most unusual toys to ever be marketed in the US and abroad. Once known as the “King of Gross”, he is the co-creator of cult favorite 80’s toy lines Sectaurs (Coleco) and Boglins (Mattel)!

 

 

Tim started his career designing and building puppets for the Jim Henson Company. Most notable were the Mystics and the Slaves that he sculpted and designed for the movie the Dark Crystal, guided by the incredible drawings of Brian Froud. He also worked on puppets for Sesame Street, the Muppet Show, and Fraggle Rock for which he created “Traveling Matt”.

After Dark Crystal was launched, he garnered his first toy sculpting gig with Hasbro creating the Garthim, Mystics and Landstrider toys. He has also created toys for Melissa and Doug toys, EK Success, Mattel, Coleco, Kenner, and Ideal- to mention just a few!

I love creating my own mythology. The world is filled with modern day mythological creatures you can find them in every nook and cranny of your bedroom closet.”
