Born in the 1980s, Killer Bootlegs artist Peter Goral’s childhood was saturated with action figures, Saturday morning cartoons, and classic movies. When he was four years old, his father showed him a bootleg VHS of The Empire Strikes Back. Little did he know that this would start Peter on a path that would lead to him being at the forefront of the bootleg action figure movement. Today, Peter’s artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other artists to follow in his footsteps. Recently, Peter has  been given the opportunity to design his own characters to be released as official ReAction figures by San Francisco-based toy company Super7. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys. Peter resides in Rockford, Illinois with his wife, Heather, and his two children.
