Mad Villain From Kidrobot


It's nice to see Kidrobot producing a toy that is not based on a rabbit.  Mad Villain is being produced in conjunction with Stones Throw Records.  Madvillain is the indie rap duo of MF Doom and Madlib. The 10" tall vinyl figure is based on MF Doom's onstage persona, who eerily resembles Dr. Doom.  Madvillain will be a limited edition (available in 2 colorways) and retail for a reasonable $34.95.


SketBots Released Today


Sket One's SketBots are now available from Kidrobot3DRetro is carrying them for $5.95 each.  With the success of Dalek's Icebots...these are sure to be popular as well.  Like several of Kidrobot's products...they have inserted golden tickets in random blind boxes.  You'll have a chance to get your hands on a limited edition 7" SketBot (only 200 pieces) if you're lucky enough to find one. 

To celebrate the release of the new Kidrobot mini series, Sket is having a show in New Haven!  Channel 1 will be hosting Authentic Happiness on November 17th.  All are invited to share a night of Sketbots, art, toys, customs and giveaways.


REVIEW: Kozik Labbit


Background has sent us one of Frank Kozik’s new rotocast vinyl Labbit figures.  These Labbits are the younger, more innocent brothers of the Smorkin’ variety.  Kidrobot might have felt somewhat pressured to appeal to younger clientele…which birthed this sweeter, gentler Labbit.



The package is a window-front box.  It is decorated with Kozik artwork.  The window allows you to see what accessories the figure you are buying has.  This is convenient, and it’s the only way you’ll be able to find the accessory set you want.


The Figures

These Labbits are non-smorkin’…so you won’t find any cigarettes in the accessory list.  Each figure is made of rotocast vinyl and measures 5” in length.  There are 4 Labbits available, with the only differing factor being the interchangeable accessories each is packaged with.  The Labbit has a hole for a mouth, and you can find accessories such as an ice cream cone, mustache, blade of grass, banana, hot dog and more!
