The SDCC Exclusive Lava Unicornasaurus was one of the most sought after show pieces. Yesterday, Kidrobot added the Gray and Orange Unicornasaurus colorways to their lineup of Joe Ledbetter designed vinyl figures. The most impressive part? That Kidrobot priced this 8" tall figure at only $39.95 each. Especially when they have some t-shirts pushing $100.
Much of the scuttlebutt around the Kidrobot booth was about Joe Ledbetter's newest release...the SDCC Exclusive Lava Unicornasaurus. But while everyone was waiting in line for that one, we were more impressed by Paul Pope's The Masked Karimbah. And if you're into Dunnys or Munnys...they had you covered.
illustrator PO (Patricio Oliver) brings us a ghoul of a Dunny. Zombie Pet is kinda cute, if
it wasn't for all the flesh eating. This GID, undead predator is made
of translucent, blue vinyl and printed with glow-in-the-dark bones, for
a distinctly ghoulish (but adorable) look.
It's the latest Dunny design from Kidrobot. And will definitely pique the interest of GID collectors...but why couldn't they have gone for blue GID?
Kidrobot will be releasing their [adult swim] mini figure line on April 17th. The blind boxed line will include 18 total characters (including 2 chase figures). So, if you are a fan of the nightly Cartoon Network programming, you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for this line.
Ahhh...this brings back memories of late nights/early mornings in college at the local Waffle House. Kidrobot is releasing Kozik's Monger Farms Country Time Breakfast 5-piece set on February 28th. Mmmm...
The folks behind ReBo Labs are probably not the only ones excited about the upcoming release of Kidrobot's Dunny Series 4. They've put together this animation that reminds us of the Rankin/Bass Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer stop-motion film. They're showing us the inner workings of the Dunny factory. I always pictured those Chinese toy factories as a little larger.
ReBo - the creative collective of Christine Reilly & Michael Boczon - was commissioned to create a stop motion animation for Kidrobot. The video shows what kind of trouble MAD's Bent World Vandals vinyl toys might get into.
If you're into Dunnys, Hoodies, Sweatshirts and all things Smorkin'...you've been excited by the last few months of Kidrobot releases. Personally, I like seeing new sculpts (and new ideas). While these might be classic Ledbetter, it's a whole new line of 16 mini figures called Finders Keepers from KR.
Sket One's newest piece is Kidrobot 13...the pirate. The figure includes the following: a treasure chest, map, hook, removable beard, eye patch, and hat. It's limited to 1,000 pieces and will retail around $39.95. Signing events are taking place in NYC (May 15th), San Francisco (May 16th) and LA (May 17th).
