Kidrobot x Clutter — Kaiju Dunny Battle Series (2.15)

The invasion begins on Friday with the release of the Kaiju Dunny Battle Series (3") from Kidrobot x Clutter.  The newest Dunny series fuses the iconic designer toy platform with fierce and not so fierce Kaiju monsters from Candie Bolton, Chauskoskis, James Groman, Jeff Lamm, John Rampage and Bwana Spoons.

Based on the reveals so far as well as the group case shot, it appears that there are 18 designs—four from Jeff Lamm, three each from Bolton, Groman, Rampage, and Bwana and two from Chauskoskis. The blacked-out dunny (chase/mystery?) in the case shot would seem to be Groman's green Dino-inspired design.

As befits the Dunny platform, the series steers away from scary and focuses instead on curious, cute, and mystical.  While only 5 of the 18 designs appear to be 'stock' Dunnys, this series seems to preserve more of the Dunny DNA than others, partly because many of the custom sculpts preserve the iconic head shape.  That said, Candie Bolton's two Baku Dunnys with the excellent Asian-influenced elephant head are among our favorites from the series.  On the flip side, Groman's designs impress with super tight, printed textures.

Kaiju Dunny Battle Series launches on Friday (2.15) from select retailers and Kidrobot for $11.99/blind box. As of this post, NYC-based myplasticheart has their stock online.  KR will release the new series at 3 PM PST on Kidrobot.com to coincide with the official NYC release party, presented in conjunction with Five Points Festival.
