Kidrobot’s Dunny Series 2009 is almost here! We’re just a few days away from the official release of KR’s newest line of 3” collectible designer vinyl figures, and The Blot is excited to bring you pictures of the toy lines’ two chase figures designed by Pon and Travis Cain.
Pon has quickly become one of my favorite artists, and I’ve been dying to find out what his two designs for Kidrobot Series 2009 were going to be. While his golden ticket design is still under wraps, the design of his chase figure has finally surfaced!
I love how Pon’s Chinese Food themed figure uses the Dunny platform. Kidrobot’s been altering the Dunny platform a lot lately in its 3 inch series (Touma’s Endangered Dunny and Devilrobots’ Dunny Series 2009 Dunny for example), but this figure really shows an artist thinking outside of the box. Get it, a Chinese Food take-out box! Man, I crack myself up. The ratio for Pon’s Series 2009 Dunny is currently unknown.
Travis Cain’s Series 2009 chase Dunny is a special one. As I alluded to on Friday, wood really is the new vinyl. Cain’s chase Wood Dunny is the first mass produced all wood figure made by Kidrobot, and I can’t wait to see one of these unique figures in person! Cain’s Dunny has a ratio of 1/100, meaning it will be pretty hard to get, but I wonder if it will be easy to spot while in a sealed blind box due to a difference in weight. I guess we’ll know more come Wednesday night.
Dunny Series 2009 goes on pre-sale Wednesday, September 9th, at select pre-release parties, and at retail locations worldwide and Kidrobot.com on Thursday, September 10th.
