Only Kidrobot has the ability to bring the king of pop art and the king of rock and roll together with the king of designer vinyl toys. This eight inch Masterpiece Dunny features Andy Warhol’s well know screen printed interpretation of the one and only Elvis Presley. I’ve never been lucky enough to see one of the original pieces this figure is based on, but I did stop in a roadside antique store in an old barn in Virginia once, and one wall was completely covered in velvet Elvis paintings. Dozens of these pictures were arranged in a display so majestic that they may have been placed there by the hands of divinity. It was a level of beauty my own decorating abilities could aspire to but never actually achieve and I still get short of breath thinking about it.

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
