This character is based on the fictional city of Armilla from Italo Calvino's "Invisible Cities". Dexter Duncan is the Mr. Fix-it of a deteriorating city--a repairman, plumber, crimefighter.
I imagined him being created in a similar vein to the BrothersFree toys, using real materials (cloth, metal, rubber) and having a TON of accessories while also being fully poseable.
Oh, and he has a trumpet too. . . and suction cups. . . because toys are always cooler when they hang.
