Kidrobot’s Throwback Thursday: Lord Strange
Another awesome Throwback Blog brought to you by our good friend Chris Holt, aka The Toy Viking.. this time we unlock the dark door of Lord Strange by Brandt Peters.
Last week saw the release of the brand new glow in the dark edition of Brandt Peter’s The 13 Dunny series, but no set can be complete without the diabolical mind behind it all….Lord Strange!!!! I don’t know if he’s a tradition lord like the British have, or if he bestowed the title upon himself, but he sure is strange! Any doubts of that could be quickly erased by removing his skull mask. There’s a lot going on underneath it (let’s just say you wouldn’t want to be responsible for paying his bill at the eye doctor) and even more happening in his dark mind.
Complete with dashing top hat, cane, and flaming ears you can invite this mysterious character into your life to help with all your interdimensional portal opening needs. He’s, like, really good at it.
Add him to your collection today at www.kidrobot.com

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
