    Help! are these dreadnoks???

    im new to the forum after trying to find out what these masks are & came across yojoe on a google search. my sister was at an art gallery in mn & saw these there.










    sorry the color kind of sux.



    she sent me pics & i went WILD becuase to me some of them look like the oldschool dreadnoks that i had as a kid. at least i recognize zarana, buzzer, ripper, zanzibar & thrasher except some of the colors seem wrong. i don't know who the one with the eyepatch or those purple skullcap guys are. she can't rmemeber the exact name of the gallery & was only there for a couple of days but she said the name was like sooline gallery or sometihng like that. id like to know if anyone here knows if therye dreadnoks or what & who the artisty is or if theyre for sale. i haven't found anything online so it seems that asking here is the best optiom.

    Looks like Roadpig in the upper left corner of the second pic.

    Edit: Ok, I'm guessing the bald one with the eye patch is maybe Demolishor

    And the others with the purple skullcaps might be the Dreadheads(Dreadnok Recruits)

    Sure looks like the xxx movie logo in Buzzers mouth. Is that your sister in Buzzers eye?

    Sure looks like it! In the reflection of his glasses, is that your sis taking the pic or is that part of the art? I'd love to find out exacly where this art studio is and contact the artist, although I'm not to keen on the Nazi SS lightning on Buzzer's glasses...

    thanx for clearing that up & i think youre right about the dreadheads.

    that's my sister, she said the buzzer one had mirrors for the lens part on the glasses that the artist painted on top of. she wasnt too big on the nazi emblem either but she noticed that the other side was the emblem for the band bauhaus & the nose had a heart. it think it may be for some health organization.

    she took them in minneaoplis but just happened to stop by to kill some time & wasnt paying attention to the name of the palce very well. ill ask her for more details today.

    thansk again guys! that helped out alot!

    Welcome to the Forums! Everyone here is very resourceful, so if you can find some of those oldschool Dreadnoks, or any of your other Joes and have questions, don't hesitate to chime in. It was a small instance that got me back into collecting, so I hope this does the same for you. You can buy, sell and trade here, and if you use EBay, do a little research and ask questions here or on YoJoe.com to become more savvy.

    Update

    my sister wrote back & still doesnt remember the name of the artist or gallery. she did say that it was uptown minneapolis& she bought a toy at the kid robot store next door to them & she might have the reciept. if she still does ill get the phone number there & ask them what the name of the gallery. she said the name was like soo gallery or sooline like the railroad but i still havent found anything. anyone else have better luck?
