Secret Fresh – DTA Dunny Manila Party @ SixInch Gallery


Secret Fresh will host the official Manila DTA Dunny Party at Six Inch Gallery on Sunday (6.4) at 6 PM.  In addition to the brand-new DTA Dunnys, the event will showcase 20” Custom Dunnys from QUICCS, Egg Fiasco, Quatro, EXLD and Yeo Kaa.

From the previews, the customs look pretty impressive.  QUICCS has upsized his DTA Dunny designs with a 20” SRCH + Destroy combo featuring a Giant BabyTEQ Dunny [Sknhead] complete with 8” SRCH KR Dunny + Munny hybrid.   Going with a ‘toon vibe, Quatro’s delivered a sly one-eyed creation perfect for black light display.

If you’re in Manila, drop by and pick up a few DTA Dunny blind boxes and enjoy the new customs.  It sounds like a few of the artists including QUICCS will be on hand as well.

Kidrobot x Clutter – DTA Dunny Series Available Now


Following the early preview drop at Five Points Festival, the Designer Toy Award Dunny series from Kidrobot x Clutter is now available in general release.  The series features multiple Dunnys from Andrea Kang, So Youn Lee, Gary Ham, QUICCS, and The Bots who each created customs for one of the two DTA Dunny exhibitions. The designs are quite strong and the execution/production quality shines here.  Our take: a very strong Dunny series with an emphasis on cute designs. You can pick up the DTA Dunnys for 11.99/blind box from indie art toy shops including Rotofugi and myplasticheart as well as Kidrobot.com of course.

ABCNT x Mighty Jaxx – Bitchy Rich (6.3)


The Donald as President Trump  is proving to be a rich source of inspiration for comedians, artists, and other creative folks driven to comment on today’s politics.  Street artist ABCNT’s murals of Bitchy Rich portray 45 as Richie Rich clutching stacks of cash.  The biting caricature is now making the leap from the wall to art toy through a collaboration with Mighty Jaxx

[Press Release Quotes]

“Despite the millions of dollars his daddy gave him to make him feel bigly, Bitchy Rich knew deep down inside that he was just a small, small man that would never have any friends”

“Hiding behind wads of cash and masking his self-loathe with a giant red neckwear, he set out to be an affable king. He bought new red hats for everyone and promised greatness if they would just be his friends”

The figure realizes ABCNT’s critical vision with a rather unflattering likeness of the President with chubby proportions and his distinct orangeish tan complete with eye tan lines. The 8” Bitchy Trump figure will be available for pre-order on Saturday (6.3) from Mighty Jaxx for $80 (+ s/h).

Trump Art Toys are starting to become an eye-catching, rebellious trend.  From ABCNT’s Bitchy Rich to Richie Trump from Ron English and Trump Unmasked from Alex Solis, there’s plenty of resistance as toy to go around.
