Kidrobot – Dunny Skate Deck

In a bit of a surprise, Kidrobot has announced and released its brand-new Dunny Skate Deck.  The half and half, black+yellow design features a Dunny in out line form in the middle with KR logos on both edges.  As a nice touch the wood grain shows through on the black side.  The underside leaves the wood to shine on its own.  The deck is  available for $49.99 from Kidrobot.com.  Perhaps we’ll see more KR lifestyle in the future?wood-dunny-skateboard-deck-by-kidrobot-1_grande

Fungus Queens Deck by Attaboy

Fungus Queens produced by Pop Cling is Attaboy's very first limited-edition deck.  His patience has paid off.  Limited to 100 pieces @ $75 each, the deck looks extremely nice with a vivid design.    This deck and all of the Pop Cling decks come with a print/certificate of authenticity (w/bio and deck number) for added collectability and ship in a silver shiny polybag.  If you're walls are pale and sad, spice 'em up with a dose of Attaboy's Yum Candy. Get it from Attaboy's web store or Pop Cling.

Summer Series Decks from mphlabs

mphlabs is set to drop three hot new decks by UPSO, Sket One, and MAD.  Each deck is limited to 75 pieces, will drop in July/August, retails for $60 and is distributed by myplasticheart.  Each of these decks is nice, with UPSO's standing out on the strength of his experimental design.  There's been a  lull in deck releases, so it's good to see  a reputable company step up and expand their offerings.
