Today at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Kidrobot released what can only be assumed is the first colorway of Andrew Bell’s 8” Mahakala Dunny, and thanks to Kidrobot’s Instagram account we have our first look at this intricate figure! Is it just me or is this guy even cooler than Series 2012’s 3” Mahakalas (and those were pretty amazing in their own right). I love the color scheme of this figure, the 3” Dunny heads around its neck, and of course its spear accessory! And don’t even get me started on the four arms and Bell’s killer artwork on the packaging. If you were lucky enough to scoop up this SDCC 2012 exclusives earlier today The Blot congratulates you as this will make a great addition to anyone’s collection.
Dunny-sattvas take wrathful form when a gentler approach is not effective. Seemingly demonic, the Mahākāla deity is a stern protector. With his trident, he fights the poisons that blind – pride, lust, greed, and ignorance – and destroys those that hinder the knowledge of enlightenment. He has four arms, three eyes, and one fiery crown. Some compare him to death; others hail him as a glorious guard. All know him to be fierce. The 8-inch Mahākāla Dunny by Andrew Bell – wrathful in name, and protective in nature – is inspired by the Mahākāla character, ever present in ceremonies throughout the Himalayan region, originating with ancient Indian and Nepalese culture. Prosperity Edition is limited to 300 pieces, and rules with a trident accessory, extra set of articulated arms, and removable Dunny skull belt. Set to release at Kidrobot Booth #4529 at San Diego Comic Con for $100.
