Kidrobot and Ron English have officially announced the release details for their Apocalypse Grin 8-inch Dunny. The Apocalypse Grin is based off of the previously released 3-inch version, which was a part of the 2012 Apocalypse Dunny Series. This much larger figure will include an alternate colorway that will only be available as a chase piece (that means you can't choose to purchase the white and blue one - you luck into it). Look for the Apocalypse Grin 8-inch Dunny to be released onI Kidrobot.com (and other various stores) on Friday, September 4th 2015 at 9AM MST. It'll set you back $75.00.
Kidrobot and Warner Bros. have announced that they're teaming up to release a full capsule based on the classic animated series - Looney Tunes.
“Between the years of 1930 -1968, a small ramshackle structure hidden in the very back of the Warner Bros. studio lot unleashed a cavalcade of riot and delight upon an unsuspecting world. Looney Tunes was unlike anything ever made before or since. Kidrobot is proud to present a full cast of your favorite cartoon heroes and anti-heroes from Bugs to Pepe LePew for your collecting pleasure.” said Frank Kozik, Creative Director of Kidrobot, on the creation of the Looney Tunes capsule.
The capsule will include a 3-inch Blind Box Mini Series, a Looney Tunes Keychain Series, and a Limited Edition Mark Dean Veca Tweety Bird Art Toy. The full capsule will launch in stores and online at Kidrobot.com beginning in January 2016.
We showed you a few characters from Kidrobot's new plush Phunny line...because it included Gremlins toys. But several additional series of Phunny plush toys will apparently be available...including characters from: Alien, DC Comics, Terminator, Elf, and A Christmas Story. They'll be releasing throughout the fall and winter of 2015 and into spring 2016.
**I'd like to see some of the actual plush designs. I look at the one from A Christmas Story and have a feeling that design was created in MS Paint**
With Kidrobot and Capcom teaming up to bring Mega Man vinyl toys to fans of the video game, we've only had a chance to see some of the larger, 7-inch tall, figures.

No word on exact pricing as of now.
Kidrobot has announced the official release of Junko Mizuno’s Violet Soda Lady 8-inch Dunny. Following the sold out release of Berry Chocolate Lady at San Diego Comic Con, this version will be available beginning on Friday, July 31st 2015 at 9AM MST. In celebration of the release, Junko Mizuno will be signing at Kidrobot San Francisco on July 31st 2015 from 6PM to 9PM. Look for the Dunny to retail for $100.00 each.
The artist describes her creation below:
The Purple Soda Girl Dunny that I designed in 2012 was very hard to create, so I'm really happy & excited that her big sisters, Violet Soda Lady and Berry Chocolate Lady, are coming out! I hope they will find a lot of happy owners! I think of my Purple Soda Girl Dunny from 2012 as a daughter of Kuro Megami that I designed for Kidrobot Black Series. When I designed her, I was using the photos I took of old god and goddess statues at Asian Art Museum as reference. So Kuro Megami is kind of like a goddess representing my art. Purple Soda Girl and the two new 8” Dunny’s are all her daughters who have the same goddess-like feeling.
Today (Monday July 20th 2015) marks the release of the Mega Man 7-inch tall (medium) figures from Kidrobot and Capcom. Following their popular 2015 SDCC exclusive releases, Kidrobot will have both the Mega Man and Proto Man 7-inch tall figures available to purchase today. No word on pricing yet...but I'd assume it's close to the $49.99 the SDCC Exclusives of the same size were.
