Red rum…red rum…it’s time for us to kick it back to some of the Kidrobot favorites. Pairing up with Kidrobot creative director, Frank Kozik… we have brought back the Red Rum Dunny. Here to say a little something more about the piece is our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking.
All work and no play makes Jack a typical American with a wife and child and a mortgage, who just wants to write his dang gone novel with a little bit of peace. And just like Kidrobot, he has chosen to nurture his artistic side in the scenic mountains of Colorado. When things don’t go so well for Jack he can get a little stabby and no one is safe when he tries to break through the worst case of writers block ever. Help things go well for Jack by bringing him into your home via this Redrum Dunny from Frank Kozik and Kidrobot. Of course you’ve seen this guy in various sizes throughout the years, but now he’s debuting in five inch form. His shorter stature hasn’t lessened his aggression though, as he comes covered in enough evidence of his crimes to convict 100 men. DNA will get you every time.
Armed with a hatchet and his favorite source of potassium, you can complete the saga of this legendary design today at www.kidrobot.com. Think of how great every size of them will look together, lined up like demonic little nesting dolls. Oh, and there’s a super limited glow in the dark version as well that’s a Kidrobot exclusive! Think of them as before and after.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
