We Talk With Mr. Uglydoll Himself – David Horvath

We chat it up with Uglydoll, Noupa, Little Bony, Pounda, Wonderplan 51, etc. creator David Horvath. With a number of toys and projects on the horizon, we get the inside scoop.
(My questions are in black - David's answers are in blue)

With the first Series of Little Uglys recently released, and Series 2 landing in the near future, will we be seeing more characters in the “normal size” anytime soon?

New normal size Uglys have been born and are on the way.


We all got a glimpse of the Mini Uglys vinyl figures at Comic Con, are these going to be in production anytime soon? Will we see more than just the usual Uglydoll characters?

We created this line with Critterbox so that we would have the freedom to release the “background characters” of the Uglydoll universe with greater ease.
  While most vinyl figure publishers have production delays, we’re constantly causing our own toys months or even years of delay to get them right. If anytime soon means one year for you, then I say I hope so?

William Wray – Fine Artist


Everyone knows Bill Wray from his work on Ren and Stimpy, his monthly comic strip - Monroe - that runs in Mad Magazine, and his comics (including Big Blown Baby and Hellboy Jr.)

Now, Bill is concentrating on fine art oil painting.  His work is focusing on the urban landscape of California, and he is looking to capture "what's left of a bygone era" in his paintings...before these structures are replaced by strip malls.

David Horvath’s 2-Faced Dunny Set 2


Kidrobot has released a sneak peek of the new set of mini Dunnys from Uglydoll creator David Horvath.   Unlike the first set, these will be sold individually (and not as a packaged set).  Much like the last set of Horvath Dunnys...the mini set and the large Dunny will be released with an interrelated story.  The large 8-inch Dunny will be the Eggdrop Dunny (pictured below).  So look for the whole story to be released in October.


Also, be on the lookout for the Dunny designed by Sun-Min - it's in the 2-Faced Dunny Set 2.
