We already showed you a good chunk of what Kidrobot had on hand at Toy Fair, but one other thing being displayed was the new Huck Gee Post Apocalypse Dunny Series. Lots of these little guys were on hand, and, quite honestly I had to keep reminding myself I wasn’t looking at the Gold Life series; the re-use of pieces and sculpts is a tad ridiculous and makes this feel like one of the most unoriginal Dunny releases yet. Yes, there are a few gems in the series such as the futuristic geisha and the robots, but on the whole, the series feels like it’s been released for ages (mainly because some of these have, just in different colorways). Hit the jump to take a closer look at this new series that will be dropping at the end of the month and ponder as to what most of these remotely have to do with a post apocalyptic world.

I adored Kidrobot’s first Dunny series with Huck Gee, the Gold Life series, that I was inspired to take the little guys outside and do a shoot with them. Now, it seems that Kidrobot is taking us into the distant future for Huck’s second Dunny series which is dubbed Post Apocalypse. The series seems to reuse quite a few accessory pieces and sculpts from the Gold Life series as well as other Dunny series, but they all feature new twists from Huck’s imagination: there’s rhinos and robots and killers and even an amazing futuristic geisha!
I’m a tad on the fence with this series though as it feels like I’ve seen all of these designs before and the reusing of sculpts, while understandable, seems a bit lazy. That said, these are some of the best looking Dunny pieces Kidrobot has produced in quite some time, so I may just have to grab some as these will be limited. If you want to get some of these for yourself, the Post Apocalypse will begin on February 28th for $9.95 a blind box (£7.90 UK, €9.20 EU) and will be available at all Kidrobot retailers.

Like the Mahākāla Dunny by Andrew Bell, the Skullslinger by Huck Gee also debuted at San Diego Comic Con to quite some mixed commentary. Some loved that there was a new Huck Gee piece while others said, “Oh, not this again…” and quite a few others had much harsher statements that I won’t repeat here out of respect. And while I personally am inclined to agree with said comments, it all means nothing as this piece has Huck Gee’s name slapped on it, the Skullhead design in some form, and is limited, so that’s enough to make some remaining vinyl fans go bonkers and buy it up like it’s milk and eggs and the end of the world is coming.
While the original black colorway has come and gone from the building, there’s a new Blondie colorway, which still has the appeal of looking like an uninspired copy of Jesse Hernandez’ El Bandito Muerto going for it and puts the Skullslinger here in more traditional colored clothing. I really have to say, this colorway doesn’t flatter this piece in the slightest, in fact, it does the exact opposite for me: the light colors highlight every single flaw in the sculpting and magnify every single seam line 100 fold. Also, the complete lack of shading and detail in the paintwork just feels lazy, and while I know that vinyl rarely uses shading or detailing in paint, not having it here seems like a giant misstep.
If you’d like to throw your cash at Kidrobot and Huck Gee for this piece, you can do so beginning on August 9th when this 11 inch piece will hit stores in a run of 700 pieces retailing at $100 each (£79.90 UK, €92.70 EU). Also, if you’d like to throw that cash at Huck Gee in person, you can do so on Thursday, August 9th at Kidrobot San Francisco where Huck will be on hand to sign these, but don’t forget, no asking for sketches!

Kidrobot is obviously one of the main players in the vinyl world, with perhaps more releases than any other company (not counting Super7, since their production rate is ungodly). While I’ve lost interest in most vinyl I always try to keep an eye on what they are up to, since there’s always something fun at SDCC. They teased a ton of exclusives before the con, most of which were only revealed there!
My favorite by far is the amazing Hypnotoad from Futurama, who I am sure will be making his way into my collection sooner or later (he should have an online release). The Chuckboy Labbit, which looked a bit bland from the silhouette, is actually ridiculously adorable. Chuckboy’s recent robot style works very well on this platform! The other exclusives are less my style: I like the Andrew Bell 8″ “Mahākāla” Dunny (Prosperity Edition) but it’s a bit busy for my taste, though I can see why it’s so popular. The Homer Buddha, in the same vein as Hypnotoad, is pretty adorable and comes in a normal and golden colorway… I just don’t really like Homer! Then there’s Huck Gee’s Skullslinger, which to me looks far too close to Jesse Hernandez’ Bandito. I do like the sleek stylized look, but I’d like to see something a little different as far as event exclusives go.
Of course that wasn’t all they had, tons of minifigures made their way to the convention as well, so check them all out in the gallery!

Well, it’s that time of year again, it’s almost San Diego Comic Con time! Sadly, Leah and myself do not know if we’re headed back out there again this year yet (fingers crossed that we will be!), but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get excited for all of the exclusives that will be on hand! First up this year, and almost every year, is Kidrobot, who has decided to show off their 2012 exclusives as silhouettes, which is quite sleek! First up on Wednesday, Preview Night, we have the pre-release of the Futurama Hypnotoad vinyl figure, which will retail for $39.95 and will be available at Kidrobot retailers and online starting on August 2nd. Also on Preview Night we will see the release of the SDCC exclusive Simpsons Homer Buddha figure, which will be an edition of 500 pieces retailing for $50 each.
Thursday, the first day of the con, has the first release and signing with Chuckboy’s SDCC Exclusive Cyborg 7-inch Labbit Excelsior Edition, which will be an edition of 300 pieces retailing for $75 each and Chuckboy himself will be on hand to sign them. Friday follows this up with Andrew Bell’s signing for the Mahākāla Dunny Prosperity Edition, which is also an SDCC Exclusive and a run of 300 pieces, but this 8″ Dunny will cost a pretty penny — he retails for $100. Featuring four arms, a staff, a crown, and a removable belt, this is one detailed Dunny, but considering having seen the Dunny 2012 design that it is based upon, I think I’ll be passing on this as it’s just not something I’d want to own for $100 and way too distant from Andrew Bell’s usual style. Saturday sees the release of Huck Gee’s Skullslinger Tuco Edition, an 11 inch tall vinyl piece presumably with Huck Gee’s classic skullhead design, a long flowing cape, some of Huck’s usual wings, and presumably a gun somewhere. Tuco will retail for $100 and will also be an edition of 300 pieces and have a signing accompanying him as well.
Last, but not least, Sunday will have a special event featuring Kidrobot’s Ryan the Wheelbarrow who will be live screen printing shirts for people in whatever color and style they request. There will only be 78 shirts on hand and they will go for $38, so if you want one, I’d suggest getting in line pretty early as these are sure to go fast! All signings and events will take place at Kidrobot’s booth (#4529) from 12PM-2PM and will most likely require wristbands like previous years to keep things in order. Personally, there’s not much here that I’m excited for outside of the Hypnotoad, whom I will most likely just get after the convention as he is a general release, and the Chuckboy Labbit as I love the cyborg Dunny that he did and I know that this Labbit will come out amazing. Well, that seems to be the rundown for Kidrobot this year! What are you looking forward to picking up or are you sick of the same people being brought back to do the same things year after year? Let us know in the comments below!

The Beast Brothers and Huck Gee have collaborated on 8″ Dunny pieces before, but this latest collaboration is most certainly one of my favorite. Dubbed the 8″ Royal Guard Skullendario Azteca Dunny, this gold mixture of the Skullhead design by Huck Gee and the Beast Brothers’ Azteca 2 Dunny Series design is quite stunning to see. Adorned with gems and jewels and featuring the royal flag as well, this is one awesome looking piece. If you’re looking to add a great handmade resin piece to your collection, the Royal Guard Skullendario Azteca Dunny will be available for 24 hours starting on April 20th at 1pm EST for $475 on the Beast Brothers’ online webstore.

Huck Gee’s Gold Life Dunny series has had quite a lot of hype surrounding it recently, and when I found out that Kidrobot NY would be getting these little guys in early, I was on the first train I could get on after the hurricane to go pick up a case and the Kabuki set. Today, I decided to take all of the ninjas, samurais, animals, and geishas outside to let them be back in their natural habitat. You can see some battling between the animals, a happy monk, and some badass samurais all in the gallery below. I’m really happy with how this series turned out and that I’m only missing two designs (the red samurai and the elusive Tarzo), which makes purchasing a case well worthwhile. I think my favorite of the set is Samurai Hicks, but Golden Claw is a very close second and the Wayward Life Monk always puts a smile on my face. There’s also a bonus picture hidden in there featuring another one of Huck’s designs as well, so be on the lookout for that. So go hit the gallery and get a very close look at the Huck Gee Gold Life Dunny series before it drops everywhere tomorrow at Kidrobot stores and Kidrobot retailers worldwide.

It seems that between making two different colorways of his Ornery Panda Shinsengumi 8″ Dunny custom and finishing off everything for his upcoming Gold Life 3″ Dunny series and Kabuki 2 Pack, Huck Gee had a few minutes to take some pictures of the Gold Life Dunny series that’s now in his hands. This series, which seems to be the most wanted Dunny series in quite some time, is looking quite amazing in these new pictures. The quality control is top notch, which is something Kidrobot has struggled with in the past, and the detailing in each Dunny’s sculpt is quite nice. Also, we can finally see the ratios of these Dunnys which show that it should be similar to Dunny 2Tone in that each case should contain all but 1 or 2 designs, much different from the half-to-more missing of say Dunny 2010 or 2011. So what’re you waiting for? Go hit the gallery to take a closer look at ninjas, geishas, tigers, some samurai, a pissed off rhino, and lots more to tide you over until the upcoming signing tour and general release on September 1st.

Huck Gee never seems to stop working as of late between the original Ornery Panda Shinsengumi 8″ Dunny customs, his upcoming 3″ Dunny Series, and the special Kabuki Dunny 2 Pack, this newest custom is a complete surprise. Apparently demand was so high for the original Ornery Panda Shinsengumi 8″ Dunny that Huck is now offering a second alternate colorway for those who missed out, which he has dubbed the Ornery & Bloodshot Panda Shinsengumi. This new colorway comes with all of the accessories as the original, but also comes with a Sake bottle of courage and the bloodshot addition to his eyes. Again, this piece will be an edition of 10 pieces and will retail for $750, so if you want one, shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as they’ll be sold on a first come, first serve basis.

Well, we just showed you a closer look at the Huck Gee Gold Life Dunny Series that will be coming out on September 1st, but that’s not all that Kidrobot and Huck Gee had up their sleeves! Also available will be a Dunny 2 pack set featuring 2 Kabuki Dunnys, one male warrior, and one female. The set features more accessories than the Dunnys in the standard series and comes with some amazing Kabuki masks for each Dunny. The set also seems to double as a playset of sorts with the back of the box being a scene in which you can pose your Dunnys in front of.
I’m really glad to see even more detailed Dunnys in the Gold Life series as the intricacy that Huck usually likes to go into on his custom figures rarely makes its way over into vinyl, but it has here. The set is also a great alternative for those not able to purchase a case of figures as it will retail at $29.95 (£24 UK; 27.80€ Europe), and like the regular series it will be available at Kidrobot stores and all Kidrobot retailers as well starting on September 1st, but also available beforehand at the special signing tour dates. Will any of you readers be picking this set up to supplement the Dunny series or will you only be getting these two pieces?
