The Blot was flabbergasted to learn earlier this week that Kidrobot will be releasing an entire collection of officially licensed DC Comics Dunny vinyl figures! This is the first time ever Kidrobot has released a Dunny collection of officially licensed characters, and it’s garnering some really mixed reviews from the designer art toy scene. While I’m sad to see the iconic designer art toy platform move in this direction, a Batman Dunny Series is really not that big of a change from KR’s recently released Andy Warhol Series. But at least that collection was an artist series dedicated to his body of work.
That being said, The Blot is a huge DC Comics fanatic and I’m super pumped for this new DC Comics Dunny Collection. How could I not be when Booster Gold (my favorite super hero) is getting his very own 1.5” Dunny keychain!!! And for that I will be eternally grateful to the Kidrobot crew. Now who do I need to speak with about getting a case of those adorable Booster Gold Dunnys!?! Check out KR’s official descriptions of their upcoming DC Comics Dunny Collection releases - and thanks to our friends at myplasticheart for the pics:
