You should check out SpikeTV's Geek-Ray Vision show. It's viewable on Spike's website...you'll have to wait for all of the fancy Flash stuff to run its course and then click on the Geek-Ray Vision section of the Web Originals. There are interviews with a number of Kidrobot folks - Paul Budnitz, Toy Baroness Nichole, Maze and JK5.
There is also a sneak peek of the upcoming line from Kidrobot - Flowbots (from JK5). They will be available on September 14th.
FreeBento.com has sent us a few of Frank Kozik and Kidrobot’s latest collaboration – Mongers.
If you see a figure with an X on its forehead and a cigarette in its mouth…it doesn’t take much to realize it’s from Frank Kozik. He’s created Dunnys, Labbits and Bone Bunnies that have the “smorkin” look. Kozik has teamed up with Kidrobot to bring Mongers to life. Series 1 of these mini figures has 20 different designs…from smorkin’ bananas to smorkin’ sausage.
The Mongers series is blind-boxed. Each box includes a sheet with drawings of the figures as well as ratios.
For Immediate Release From Wheaty Wheat Studios:
"Kidrobot and Wheaty Wheat have reached an amicable agreement with
respect to the release of the Mr. Bunny Dunny as part of the L.A.
series, and Wheaty Wheat has authorized this release. The terms of the
agreement are confidential. Wheaty Wheat holds an exclusive license to
make toys from Joe Ledbetter's Mr. Bunny Character."
Several of our sponsors will be very excited as today is the release date for the Los Angeles Series of Dunnys. FreeBento.com, 3DRetro.com and RocketPop.net will all have the series up for sale today. 3DRetro did pre-orders...essentially selling out before the figures ever came in. FreeBento has opened boxes and RocketPop has blind boxes. This series might be what the Dunny needs...after several "eh..." releases.
