This Thursday (June 23rd) will see the release of a brand new 3″ Dunny set from the Kidrobot camp. The 2011 Series features 20 individual Dunny designs, by 15 different artists, including the talents of favourites Chuckboy, Huck Gee, and Dirty Donny amongst a long list of long-time contributors and fresh faces. The new collection also features the return of New York’s Mishka, more often known for their clothing, who have produced one of the 2011 series’ chase designs.
Inside the 20 strong line up you’ll also find the work of 64 Colors, Aya Kakeda, DrilOne, Elphonso Lam, Kronk, Le Merde, MAD, Mister F(r)ame$, Squink!, Travis Lampe, and Betso, who’s designs range from the cute & cuddly to the dark & grim, with heaps of fun and character. Each blind box comes with a KR trading card and a single piece of a top secret Dunny, which can be pieced together from various pieces throughout the series – a really nice touch which I’m sure will send collector’s into a bit of a frenzy.
To help in the quest to collect all 20 Dunny designs, Kidrobot flagship locations across the world will be holding special trading parties, including one at the brand’s London store. As well as being your first opportunity to purchase the new series, this will also be your chance to try and scoop those much desired collectables by trading with fellow KR fans. Case purchases will be accompanied by a limited DS2011 tote bag and an alternate colourway of Huck Gee’s Zombie Dunny – only available on launch night.
To get in on the action, head to the Kidrobot London store (Earlham Street, Covent Garden) from 6pm this Thursday June 23rd, and look out for the new series online at Kidrobot the same day.
