REVIEW: Frank Kozik and Kidrobot’s Mongers

P1030242

FreeBento.com has sent us a few of Frank Kozik and Kidrobot’s latest collaboration – Mongers.

Background

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.
