Johnny Draco x Kidrobot – Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny

unnamed
Friday saw the release of the Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny (5”) from Johnny Draco and Kidrobot.  The darkly whimsical Mr. Watt makes clever use of the Jason Freeny-designed Anatomical Dunny sculpt with a story split across the two halves.  Blissfully unaware Mr. Watt on the left, and struck-by-lighting victim on the right or perhaps the outer and inner personas of the character.  This first use of the Anatomical sculpt as a sub-platform in its own right looks great and has us excited for the potential of additional artist takes. 

The 5” Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny ($39.99) is available in both a standard blue edition (1000 pcs.)  available at various retailers like 3DRetro as well as a KR-Exclusive Mono Edition (200 pcs.)  available only at Kidrobot.com

‘Thar she blows! Instinctoy has just announced their exclusive Killer Whale edition of the brand-new Giant Maguro-Senpai vinyl from Mame Moyashi.  Armed with a giant knife, the ‘Rage of Big Tails’  has come to avenge whale extinction. The debut edition of the larger figure (10.5”) blends Orca and Tuna nicely, no surprise given last year’s excellent Instinctoy exclusive Salmon Maguro, a great example of the brand’s attention to detail.  The Killer Whale Maguro will be on display at Instinctoy’s DCon booth [#503] and then will be released at Tokyo Comic Con in December with an  online lottery afterwards.

Munky King x kaNO – The Messenger

23161027_295739984258296_7775095943518486528_n

By taking a knee, ex-NFL QB Colin Kaepernick sent a powerful message heard widely throughout America and the world.  For Patrick Lam, co-founder of Munky King, the message resonated personally as husband of an African-American woman, father to two mixed-race children, and Uncle to a nephew who died under mysterious circumstances after a traffic stop by police.   Moved to act, to support the cause of racial equality put front and center by Kaepernick, Patrick reached out to kaNO to create The Messenger,  a vinyl figure of Kap on one knee, a powerful symbol of protest and resistance.  We’re looking forward to seeing a proto of the figure at DesignerCon.  Hit the jump for the official press release.

Munky King -- ‘Kap’ Figure in Development

23101531_2133462493547981_4844417256676917248_n
With its next project Munky King makes an unexpected move into new territory.  Revealed as a silhouette, the new figure features a stylized rendition of ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick taking a knee in protest of social injustice—a gesture which has generated visceral reactions throughout America and the world.  We’re obviously eager to see more of the sculpt and if things goes as planned, Munky King will display a prototype at their DesignerCon booth.

Likely to inherit the controversy surrounding Kaepernick, the as-yet un-named art toy will almost certainly spark discussions, some heated, some thoughtful, some of which might move things forward a step or two here and there. While some will certainly criticize MK for making a clear political statement with this project, art is an expression of feeling, belief, and point of view and need not be pleasing or acceptable to all.  In fact, many would argue that art is stronger or strongest when it moves people deeply,  positively or negatively. The push-back sentiment that art and culture should steer clear of politics mistakes creative endeavors as merely entertainment and commerce.  The obvious commercial risk demonstrates the depth of Munky King’s sentiment and desire to support the movement Colin Kaepernick brought into the living rooms of sports fans worldwide.

 22857689_140946049870508_4106289880902926336_n

Whereschappell makes truly impressive resin ‘action figure’ renditions of iconic comic book, sci-fi, and movie characters.  Next up?  Cable who will be busting heads on the screen in Dead Pool 2 and Avengers:Infinity Wars. 

Whereschappel’s version is, as you might expect, well-sculpted, exudes cool and is over-the-top.  No really…  Partly because of indecision (and maybe because he’s a bit mad), he’s offering Cable in six editions.  That’s right, boy and girls.  There are three different color/gear options for regular cable and three more for Old Cable with wise beard.  Each is loaded for bare with soft goods poncho, and one giant gun 3D-printed by Robb Crafer (@albion_fx). 

22500087_1032749466864955_4241475664466673664_n

Limited to 60 total pieces across the six versions, Cable goes up for pre-order on Sunday, October 29th at 12 PM PST for £89 (~$118) + s/h over at Cracked Hatchet. These are slated to ship in late December or early January.
