Jeremy Fish x 3DRetro - Burger Ed. Bison Van + Release Party (6.24)

13388747_1619088818407248_1270478028_n

Jeremy Fish will be in LA next weekend for two events.  First up is the release of the Burger Edition of the Bison Van vinyl on Friday (6.24, 7-11 PM) from 3DRetro at their Glendale location. Not only will Jeremy be there, he’ll have his now-famous van Mike there as well. Plus, there will be a burger truck (naturally!) and a live DJ. The spot to be.

Featuring a mustard yellow (or is that cheddar yellow?) design, the new edition features a winged burger emblem on the side.  Maybe I’m just hungry, but the buffalo fur texture doubles nicely here as seeds on the burger bun.  Again, maybe just dinner time.

In addition to the toy release festivities, Jeremy will open his new Los Angelurkers show with original paintings and numerous grayscale pieces at Thinkspace in Culver City the following night—Saturday, June 25th.

Ron English x Clutter – Trumpty Dumpty (6.16)

unnamed (1)

Ron English and Clutter will release Trumpty Dumpty, a witty send-up of the presumptive presidential nominee, at the ongoing Ron English Pop-Up at Red Bird  NYC on Thursday June 16th at 6 PM EDT. The faux gold edition (100 pcs, $100) appropriates the iconic nursery rhyme as biting criticism about the Donald’s rise and foreshadowing of his impending fall, perched atop a wall/gold bar/map of the USA.  The back of the piece features ‘Power to the Privileged’, a retort to ‘Make America Great Again’. It sounds as if this will be the one and only edition of the figure.

Otto Björnik x Kidrobot – Shah Mat Chess Dunny Series

unnamed (2)unnamedunnamed (1)

After an agonizing wait since the bold concept was previewed at Toy Fair back in February, the Shah Mat Dunny chess series from Otto Björnik and Kidrobot is now available from Kidrobot and select retailers. The series can be purchased in 2-pack window+blind combo packs ($19.99) featuring a visible pawn and a hidden/blind  non-pawn of matching color (King, Queen, Rook, Knight or Bishop) plus four interlocking chess-board tiles or a full chess set ($500).  There’s also a gold chase which is only available in the 2-packs.

While $500 is a considerable price to pay for the full set, consider that the bare minimum number of 2-packs you’d have to buy is 16 which would set you back $320 and that’s assuming zero misses/dupes (or is that triples)—more or less impossible.  Plus, it may be difficult or not possible to choose white/black with many online orders. Kidrobot.com guarantees 4 white and 4 black packs if you order eight packs, otherwise the color is random.

While based on Otto’s original custom Shah Mat chess series, this new production series differs from the original most notably in the Knight which now features a horse-shaped Dunny sculpt and the Rook which now features a more distinctive design and comes with a bow accessory. In addition, likely due to production and collectability practicalities,  there appears to be just one pawn design as opposed to the individual variations found in the OG custom set. Finally, the new set features bright amber eyes seen in Otto’s newer creations as opposed to the dark pupils of the original.
