Introducing: Dr. Apples (Mega Munny)

I'll let you read the following press release from Dr. Apples...but in the meantime, this might be the creepiest Mega Bunny custom I have ever seen. The piece will go up for sale on June 15th 2019, running $1,200.00. So, if you've got some loose change and a penchant for terrifying yourself...grab Dr. Apples.

Born in New Orleans, a long while ago (he’s vain about his age), Dr. Apples’ has graced your presence because he felt it was time to fraternize with humans. He’s a doctor in his own mind. He’s more like a witch but don’t you dare call him this! Oddly enough he despises other witches. I think some of them took a few potential clients. He enjoys Nola-style traditions, fancy pants attire, Venti-Iced Soy Chai-Latte (no ice), and has a sweet spot for unicorns & children. Who knew?

Don’t let his looks fool you, he is highly educated, trained and skilled in curios, magick of all kinds, traveling through other dimensions, powerful spells and of course getting into nasty trouble. You can get lost in his stories of learning about various beings. He’s a traveler of various scopes. Wherever he is, he enjoys collecting various species as souvenirs. After bringing them home, he gets bored and sells them for absinthe money.

He hates fairies (don’t ask about the eye), despises witches (even though he is one technically) & is a bit snobbish towards humans (Who isn’t?). Whatever he has seen, he catches and preserves; all yours in exchange for money. He’s generous like that. We are currently on the search to find his mother. She was kidnapped by fairies. Come with us on this journey of wonder and annoyances. You’ll laugh, I’ll cry while he wreaks havoc the only way he knows how: by bothering me.

This is a custom, one-of-one 18” Mega Munny of Dr. Apples. The base is Mega Munny. His mouth is open and has a retractable silicone tongue. Feel free to put his dread locs in a ponytail although he might not like that one bit. His face and hands are made from polymer clay. He’s hand painted and airbrushed. He comes with his signature grey/white eye and charismatic ju-ju. He’s all dressed up just for you. Aren’t you special? He is physically located at The Odd’s End in Decatur, GA and is for sale online as well.

Slonkabot 1000-5YL

Artist Mike Slobot has released the latest figure into his universe of robot art - it's called Slonkabot 1000-5YL.

I like to think that I am the Willy Wonka of my Slobot universe, so I created a robot character inspired by the Ooompa Loompas in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" - except that my Slonkabots don't make chocolate, they help me make my robot art (The Slobots).

I have been creating my Slobots since 2004 in sculpture, paintings, drawings, and digital. Most of the sculptures are one of a kind works of art using old and new toys, odds and ends from my everyday life, and things that would normally be thrown away. A lot of them have glow-in-the-dark eyes and wires, like the Slonkabot 1000-5YL.

The one-off custom Slonkabot 1000-5YL, which uses a 8-inch KAWS Companion figure, can be purchased for $350.00.
