3DRetro will host a special release and signing of their exclusive Mishka x Kalaka Toys Basuritas vinyl figure sets on Saturday (3.23) from 11 AM to 5 PM at their Glendale location. The 3DRetro Exclusive sets feature one of each character in a randomly-assorted mix of Red, Green, Black and GID versions. Inspired by the Garbage Pail Kids—named Basuritas in Argentina—the Basuritas feature four Mishka-themed takes on the youthful miscreants: Gregory O. Dioso, MISHKA Otico, Ojo Dido, and Ciclope Ligroso.  Greg Mishka and Matias Kalakas will both be at the event to sign the Basuritas figures. 

In addition to the new toys, 3DRetro will also release their exclusive Mishka Basuritas tee featuring Ramon Struoso—the elusive fifth Basurita—at the event. If you're in SoCal, head out to Saturday's event to enjoy Mishka's homage to the Garbage Pail Kids.

Kidrobot continues its recent string of Friday exclusives with a curiously clever collaboration with Locknesters.  Known for their series of interlocking 3D sculptures—part puzzles and part design objects—Locknesters has used their signature approach to create an 8" Dunny like no other.  The individual, interlocking pieces feature striated textures in neutral gray tones.  Displayed in pieces, partially assembled or fully put together, the KR x Locknesters collaboration offers a unique Dunny experience highlighting and playing with the iconic form.

The first of a series of planned collaborations, the Locknester 8" Puzzle Dunny No. 1 is limited to 250 pieces, comes in a fun Dunny-shaped, vacuformed package and will be available on Friday (3.22) at 9 AM PDT for $100 exclusively from Kidrobot.com.
