Kidrobot’s Dunny Series 5 Drops Next Month

The Blot was really starting to lose interest in Kidrobot 3 inch figures after the disappointing designs of their last few releases, and then Kidrobot dropped the news that Dunny Series 5 would be hitting shelves on September 4th. They have really compiled an all-star lineup of artists for Series 5, and from this latest photo of designs my interest in 3” figures has been fully restored. I know a lot of fans had been complaining that Kidrobot was not getting some of the biggest artists in the genre to work on their flagship 3" Dunny line, but I think Kidrobot has finally shut up their critics with this Series' stellar lineup.

Kidrobot - Dunny Series 5
Dunny Series 5 will include 19 all new designs and will have 600 randomly inserted Golden Tickets redeemable for a sure to be extremely valuable 3 inch Huck Gee Dunny. Artists taking part in Dunny Series 5 include Amanda Visell, Aya Kakeda, Clutter, Devilrobots, Dirty Donny, Frank Kozik, Huck Gee, JMGS//Jellymoon, Jesse LeDoux, JK5, Junko Mizuno, Kathie Olivas, MAD, Mad Barbarians, MISHKA, Reach, Sneaky Raccoon, Steven Harrington and TOOFLY.

Kidrobot - Dunny Series 5 Figures
I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been really digging Amanda Visell’s work, especially her Drunky McSkunky Pink Elephant, so I was uber excited to see she’d finally be designing a Dunny. You can see her contribution to the Series in the top picture. It’s the grey elephant on the right and looks great. I’m glad to see her unique style has translated really well to the Dunny platform. As always, Dunny Series 5 will be blind boxed and sell for $6.95 each.
