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?
Kidrobot crosses the shores for the release of their Ye Olde English UK Dunny Series. On January 22, the newest series of Dunnys will hit store shelves. The set consists of 17 blind boxed, 3" tall figures by top UK artists including:
Clutter, Doktor A, Frames, HiCalorie x Julie West,
ilovedust, Jon Burgerman, Keanan Duffty, McFaul, Mimic, Peskimo, Shok
1, Tado, Triclops and UAMOU
Kidrobot's paying homage to their mascot's punk rock roots with 3 new versions of their Kidrobot 16: KidPunk. The trio of vinyl figures include a ‘77 Edition, ‘80 Edition and
Released on January 8th, each of the 8" tall pieces includes a rockin' tee and record. Look for them to retail around $50 each.
Mr. Frostie Beats, designed by NYC-based Interspectacular, is set to drop on January 8th from Kidrobot. The 7" tall B-boy includes a boom box and microphone. The limited edition figure will retail for $50 and consists of a run of 500 pieces. This guy is one of my favorite recent Kidrobot releases...I like new, original designs.
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?
We love the work of Jon Burgerman, so it's only fitting that we're excited about the release of his Heroes of Burgertown mini figures. Kidrobot has morphed his insane doodles into a line of 16 vinyl figures (plus 2 chase figures). Look for them to land on September 25th and run $7.95 per blind box.
Kidrobot has released their mini figure, blind box series based on Matt Groening's The Simpsons. I guess the real question is...is The Simpsons still a relevant television show? After 20 years, are there still enough fans out there who are into vinyl toys who will buy this line? Each blind box will run $7.95 and the toys are 3" in height. They're not to scale, so Homer is the same size as Maggie, etc.
Kidrobot will be releasing a trio of new 10" Kozik Labbits on September 18th. The Dark Purple, Teal and Red will be available (as well as a limited edition original white). Look for them to retail around $39.95 each.
On September 4th, Kidrobot will be dropping the newest batch of Dunny(s) - Series
5. (Really? It seems like a lot more were released. I guess all of the artist lines aren't counted as a series.) There will be 19 new designs, blind boxed, and run you $6.95 each. Also, look out for the 600 Golden Tickets redeemable that you can redeem for 3-inch Huck Gee Dunny.
The artist list includes: Amanda Visell, Aya Kakeda, Clutter, Devilrobots, Dirty
Donny, Frank Kozik, Huck Gee, JMGS//Jellymo
on, Jesse LeDoux, JK5, Junko
Mizuno, Kathie Olivas, MAD, Mad Barbarians, MISHKA, Reach, Sneaky
Raccoon, Steven Harrington, TOOFLY.
