When I heard that Kidrobot was producing a Labbit Stool, I thought "Great...another poop toy". But they've actually added a few new fiberglass "sitting" stools from artist Frank Kozik. These are for serious collectors at $1,250 each. But who wouldn't love having the 'Stache Labbit Stool in their house? Talk about conversation starter!

If you are a fan of long lines and crazed collectors, then you probably visited the Kidrobot booth on several occasions. There was the above pictured Wood Labbit (Amanda Visell and Kozik), two Holy Roller FatCaps (DEPH) and Shane Jessup's Fortune Dunny and Luck Dunny. Not so surprisingly, all of them sold out...and were some of the hits of SDCC '09.
Amanda Visell and Frank Kozik will be at Kidrobot's San Diego Comic Con booth on Saturday July 25th from 1PM until 3PM to sign their Labbit collaboration. The Wood Labbit is Kozik's figure with Visell's design work. These are limited to
Kidrobot recently released their Quasimoto figure in two different colorways. When I saw this, it reminded me of the great custom from the NVC Crew from last year. I'm not familiar with rapper Madlib's work, but I wanted to know which of these do you think is the better representation of the Quasimoto figure?

If you're in NYC tomorrow, you'll want to make it to Kidrobot to see Jeremyville sign his new Dunny - The Nightmare in Jeremyville - from 6PM until 8PM. The Soho store is located at 118
'The Nightmare in
Jeremyville' box set comes with a comic story poster and 8 inch Dunny
with carrot. It follows the story of a young Bunny who does not eat
her carrot at supper time, and gets transported into a nightmare by the
angry carrot, who is offended that it was not eaten.
TADO's 7" tall Tulip vinyl figure will be released from Kidrobot on August 28th. You rarely see vinyl toys with so many accessories, but it appears Tulip will come loaded with a tool belt full of them. Is it me, or would this figure go perfect alongside Pete Fowler's Monsterism series?
