Gone In Sixty: MP Gautheron x Kidrobot Custom Dunnys


That’s was quick!  Kidrobot released a new collection of custom Dunnys from MP Gautheron earlier this morning and was sold out about an hour in.  The french artist created 15 customs—5 each in 3”, 5”, and 8” sizes—with three themes: floating eyes, Halloween, and sea life.   Of all the nicely done customs, 8” Ocean Dunny with koi is pretty spectacular.

‘Falling Apart’ Brings Amazing Specimen72 Customs to NYCC


Martian Toys will present Falling Apart, a group show featuring customs of Jermaine Roger’s Specimen72 at NYCC in their booth [#488].  In putting this post together, which started as a quick look for a few previews, I fell through a deep rabbit hole, and enjoyed every minute of it.  Jermaine’s signature character turns out to be a strong canvas with diverse possibilities in part due to the reposable arms. Simply put, this show features an excellent collection of custom Specimen72’s including It Can’t Rain All The Time by Dave Mark,  So, hit the jump for a preview of the show made during my visit to wonderland.

Superlatives like ‘best’ get tossed around rather casually, but Falling Apart is one of a handful of custom shows in recent memory that has truly excited me.  Props to all the artists, Jermaine Rogers, and Martian Toys.

MAD x Filter017 – ‘Hunny Badger’ Custom Mix Badger


With their Mixing your Badger project, Filter017 is inviting select artists to customize their Mix Badger vinyl (Unbox).  For his take on the Taiwanese brand’s mascot, MAD transformed the badger into everyone’s favorite Hunny-loving bear. He of course went urban with  Pooh’s gear – a camouflage jacket, Converse Chucks, and in a fun tip of the hat, kaNO’s Make Vinyl Urban Again design caps things off.  The stylized design diagram illustration with the color call outs makes us wonder if there might be more to this story. Maybe it’s just a really cool way of presenting the custom…

Otto Björnik - Artemis - Custom Munny


One very lucky collector of Otto Björnik's has just commissioned this amazing piece that we just had to share with everyone! With this piece, Otto has used a 20" Munny to help house a smaller 5" Munny within its stomach. Dubbed "Artemis", this piece also features hand-sculpted details to capture the essence of Otto's earlier customs that featured 2D painted tummies. We love that Otto went big to bring this to life! If you like what you see here, Otto has some custom Teddy Troops available through Happy Panda Toys HERE.

From the previews, the customs look pretty impressive.  QUICCS has upsized his DTA Dunny designs with a 20” SRCH + Destroy combo featuring a Giant BabyTEQ Dunny [Sknhead] complete with 8” SRCH KR Dunny + Munny hybrid.   Going with a ‘toon vibe, Quatro’s delivered a sly one-eyed creation perfect for black light display.

If you’re in Manila, drop by and pick up a few DTA Dunny blind boxes and enjoy the new customs.  It sounds like a few of the artists including QUICCS will be on hand as well.

Noah Eaton x Kidrobot X Corner 12 – Reaction Custom Dunnys


Kidrobot will continue to showcase the work of talented customizers with new Reaction Series custom Dunnys from Noah Eaton and Corner 12. Dropping on Tuesday (4.25) at 9 AM PDT from Kidrobot.com, the series features color-changing Dunnys in three sizes (3”, 5” & 8”). 

Color changing? Yep, the series uses several different approaches to achieving the dynamic effect.  The 3” customs start red and then turn yellow as they are heated beyond 86 degrees, say with a hairdryer.  The 5” ‘chameleon’ customs apparently use color-shifting paint which looks like different colors at different angles and varying light.  Finally, the 8” customs are ‘mood’ Dunnys which when chilled change various hues as they warm back up or are touched.  Additionally, there are three chase 3” customs (2 of the mood variety) and two 5” mood chases.

So if you’re looking for Dunnys with a hidden trick to wow and impress, your search may very well be over.

French artist Fakir consistently impresses with his wide range of customs, from his personal snarling beast aesthetic to various commissions such as this 1000% Hanamichi Sakuragi [email protected] done for a private collector.  If you’re a fan of the Slam Dunk manga or anime, you’ll recognize Hanamichi as the star of the hoops-driven saga.  As always, Fakir brings the super crisp and clean lines.  What really sets this one off is his rendition of the Nike Dunks—very cool.

Boro Bronson x Corner 12 – Fauxyard 3” Custom Dunnys


Corner 12 continues its ‘The Twelves’ program—editions of a dozen customs from a featured artist—with the Fauxyard 3” Custom Dunnys from Boro Bronson.   These trippy Dunnys pay homage to the classic Goyard pattern found on the luxury brand’s leather goods. Beyond the cool visuals, what’s really interesting about these is how  they are made.  Bronson creates the pattern by rolling together the different colors of  polymer clay into composite ‘canes’. You can see the uncut canes in the upper left corner of the behind-the-scenes photo shown above.  He then slices them and applies them oh-so-carefully to the Dunny.  Pretty sweet.

The Fauxyard 3” Dunnys are available from Corner 12 for $150 (+ s/h) in a variety of colors.  Hurry, they are going quickly.
