I’m a huge vinyl toy fan, also known as designer toys, I’ve got tons of them. Kidrobot for me are the kings of the industry and their most famous platform is the Dunny. Its a cool figure, basically a creature with a large round head and bunny like ears with movable arms and short feet. Most commonly they are 3 inches in height but do come in 5 inch and 8 inch. Loads of cool artists have created their own artworks on the platform, couple of my faves are Scott Tolleson, McBess, Doktor A, Frank Kozik, 64 colors and Nathan Jurevicius to name a few. So I’m going to start posting some of my creations here.
I’ve got lots of ideas and the dream would be for Kidrobot to pick some of these designs up and actually become production pieces, well that’s the big dream anyway.
First up is a Game Boy inspired dunny. I don’t think this has been done before as a Dunny. Two variants here a Start and Game Over. Its not uncommon to have variants of the same design and I think the two work well here with the Game Over having some extra pieces with the wings and the halo. Also, I think it would be cool to have a removable Game Boy Cartridge in the back of the head too.
More designs to follow…Let me know what you guys think.
