Circa 2016. This is one of my favorite images - my nephew and I are preparing for another battle of good v. evil. It’s a timeless photo that brings me back to my younger days immersed in my world of imagination. The photo really captured what I wanted ReKennect to invoke in everyone - a return to the days of a simpler childhood.
Using foam, cardboard, and a ton of glue, I had this burst of energy and excitement on what I creating. At the time I wasn’t sure where this journey was taking me. All I knew it was something that I couldn’t let go - I needed to pursue this without hesitation or doubts. With some big inspiration coming in the form of my little nephew, I began making castles and battle play environments, constantly.
Circa 2018. Action figures in hand and prototypes sprawled on the dining room table, and timing proved to be perfect combination for magic. For us, in that moment, the “lightbulb” didn’t just ignite, it exploded. With boundless supply of unused designed parts, the idea of producing a variety of travel-size playsets were before our very eyes - for there the Battlepack collection was born!
