Thanks to our friends over at Circus Posterus we now have our very first look at Kidrobot’s newest Dunny artist series, The 13!!! Designed by contemporary toy artist Brandt Peters (with feminine frights designed by his wife Kathie Olivas), “The 13” features thirteen evil Dunny souls providing a history lesson in the macabre based on classic All Hallows’ Eve tropes and vintage horror exploitation cinema icons. The Blot is a huge fan of Brandt and Kathie’s art, and I couldn’t be more excited about this release. Finally a Dunny Series that puts the artist in designer art toy again!
Legend has it that a shady eccentric by the name of Lord Strange opened up the 13th dimension one blood moon, and in so doing filled his demented 13 floor mansion, Infernal Manor, with beasts, creatures and monstrosities of every type. Lord Strange was never seen again…his lair abandoned and sealed from the public since that horrific evening. None brave enough to venture into Infernal Manor has ever returned to tell their tale. Do you dare seek The 13?
Each figure in “The 13” Dunny Series will stand 3” tall and be sold blind box style. This awesome Artist Series features 13, including two mystery chases, and is expected to hit store shelves in Fall 2015. I can’t wait to find out the ratios on this one! Even better still, if you pre-order a complete case of 20 blind boxes directly from Brandt through the Circus Posterus online store ($225) you will receive a small 5”×7” original sketch by Brandt Peters!
