Sket One’s King Tut Dunny

I might be somewhat critical of platform toys sometimes. A lot of the designs we see are just the same old stuff.  The same artists doing the same work on a different figure.  I think that's why I like a lot of customs and platform toys done by Sket One.  A lot of his work talks to my inner 1980's child (see his upcoming CiBoys line).

Sket_one_red_tut

Kidrobot has taken Sket's very popular King Tut Dunny (just ask Whoopi Goldberg - who allegedly purchased the original) from the inaugural custom Dunny Show, and shrunken it down to a formidable 8 inches.  This is my favorite Dunny so far.  Not only will the original Blue Tut be available...but the evil Red Ramses (OK...I think they might be calling this one the Red Tut) will be available as well.

Dunny_20inch_tut

The Red version is available only at Kidrobot (500 piece edition) on December 29th and the Blue version will be available at finer retailers on January 5th (2,000 pieces).  I am guessing that both FreeBento.com and 3DRetro.com will have this figure available.

3DRetro – New Dunnys up for Pre-Order

3DRetro.com has a number of brand spankin' new Dunnys up for Pre-Order.

Huckgee8dun

Huck Gee's tattooed 8-inch Don'yoku Dunny was first shown at the Visionaire Dunny Show in 20-inch form.  It has been shrunken down and mass-produced for everyone to own. Or 2,000 people...as that is the edition size.  Availble for $39.50

Doma_blue

DOMA - a group of Argentinian artists - has also created a Dunny.  Like Huck Gee's Dunny, this one will be released on December 1st.  It will be available in Red or Blue versions.  The Red version is limited to 1,500 pieces and the Blue version is limited to 1,000. Available for $29.50

Peary is one Bloody Bear

Peary

Rocket World has created an exclusive bloody polar bear...exclusive to Kidrobot.  This is a limited edition addition to the Insurgents Wilderness GruppoPeary is an extra bloody polar bear (he looks a lot like Titus) and limited to only 100 pieces.  He is 7 inches tall, so it's the normal vinyl figure and not a member of the mini figure line.  It looks like Peary got into some tomato sauce...but that's actually human blood (I like the smeared handprint).

Phony-Baloney…feeding you the truth…

SEEN and the folks at Planet6 are proud to announce the launch of Phony-Baloney – a line of 8 law enforcing swine.  Look for these to launch on October 28th at a special Kidrobot San Francisco show.

Here's how the Phony-Baloney website describes the line:

The cast of misfit law enforcing idiotic pigs, otherwise known as Phony-Baloney, consistently find themselves in strange and sometimes unbelievable predicaments. This gang of inept cops are ridiculed daily, and have a hard time gaining respect from the community. Common mishaps include; getting skewed at a pork roast, drunk on duty, or not remembering how the toilet plunger ended up so deeply rooted. It’s no wonder they’ve earned their infamous reputations. And because these bumbling idiots commit screw-ups on a daily basis, you’ll be sure to find them headlining all the local newspapers. Prepare yourself for PHONY-BALONEY where you’re fed the truth about pork!

Kidrobot’s Munny Show

Kidrobot's first customizable figure - Munny - is set to have a HUGE party.  Actually, 3 parties in 3 cities (LA, San Fran and NYC).  November 3rd is your chance to customize your very own Munny - right there at one of the participating galleries.  Now, they won't have dremels and magic sculpt for you hard core customizers, but there will be glitter and markers...

There will also be an auction of Munnys customized by some of your favorite artists.  The party will go towards benefiting children affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Smorkin’ Labbits Series 2

Kidrobot today announced that it’s time to talk about downsizing, even miniaturizing. It’s time to talk about Mini Smorkin’ Labbits Series 2.

Labbits2

If these Labbits were candy bars, they’d be called “fun size”. If they were bottles of shampoo, they’d be “travel size”. But, since they’re Mini Labbits, they are, in a word, the perfect freaking size!

The legendary Frank Kozik is a web designer, animator, and silkscreener, as well as being a toy designer. His oil paintings are regularly displayed in galleries across the globe.

These Mini Labbits will be available in a total of 13 blind box designs, of which two are rare “chase” figures. $4.95 at all Kidrobot stores, on the web at Kidrobot.com, and at other select retailers will get one of these hugely cute toys into your possession.

David Horvath’s 2-Faced Dunny Set 2

Dunny2face2

Kidrobot has released a sneak peek of the new set of mini Dunnys from Uglydoll creator David Horvath.   Unlike the first set, these will be sold individually (and not as a packaged set).  Much like the last set of Horvath Dunnys...the mini set and the large Dunny will be released with an interrelated story.  The large 8-inch Dunny will be the Eggdrop Dunny (pictured below).  So look for the whole story to be released in October.

Also, be on the lookout for the Dunny designed by Sun-Min - it's in the 2-Faced Dunny Set 2.
