Kidrobot Officially Runs Out of Words that Rhyme with ‘unny

Kidrobot-Phunny

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**

Junko Mizuno’s Violet Soda Lady 8-inch Dunny

Kidrobot-Purple-Soda-Girl

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.
