Jesse Hernandez x Kidrobot — Tlaloc 8” Dunny (12.14)


The saga of the on-again, off-again, on-again Tlaloc 8” Dunny from Jesse Hernandez comes to an awesome conclusion with the official release set less than two weeks away.  His intricate take on the Aztec god of rain pushes the platform with varied 3D elements throughout from the serpent heads to the ornamental eye flourishes, headdress and staff.    This one has generated quite the buzz and deservedly so.

Limited to 800 pieces, the 8” Tlaloc Dunny from Jesse Hernandez and Kidrobot drops on Friday (12.14) from select retailers including myplasticheart and of course Kidrobot.com for $99.99. Oh, did we mention Tlaloc look great under a black light? Hit the jump for Jesse Hernandez’s video demonstration.

Elena Kazi- LMNTAL + BMBOX for ‘Gift Wrapped’ (12.8)


Athens-based DJ/Artist Elena Kazi has sent a few of  her jammin’ toys across the Atlantic for Clutter’s Gift Wrapped, their  cash + carry holiday show, opening on Saturday (12.8).  First, a blast from the past.

Originally released back in 2016, LMNTAL is the urban beat bot with all the moves, including a fierce battle mode.  The clever design incorporates a microphone (head), spray cans (arms), turntable (chest) and record arm (weapon).  The Gift Wrapped LMNTAL has some custom touches from the green deco to the mini album — the BBoy classic It’s Just Begun (1972) by the Jimmy Castor bunch. While it’s been awhile, we’d certainly welcome a new LMNTAL edition.

Kazi has also sent over a heavily customized NYC version of her BMBOX resin with miles and miles of 80’s style.  Bubble lettering, animal print and flashy color panels mark a generation of genre-defining Hip Hop and the lifestyle that flowed with it.
