There is a new SHIFFA Sheriff in town, and here to tell you all about it is Chris Holt aka the Toy Viking…..
When you’re the baddest hombre this side of the Rio Grande you don’t need some menacing name to prove it to everyone. Kidrobot and Shiffa are proud to present to you this Dunny known as Jack. Yup, just Jack. And don’t let it come out of your mouth sideways either unless you want some new ventilation holes courtesy of those six shooters. Ol Jack is from a much different time you see, when men could light a match against their beard stubble and disputes were resolved at high noon in the town square. They don’t write cowboy songs about getting into arguments on a message board now do they?
Get to work on cementing your own wild legacy with the help of this five inch Dunny. He may be small, but his legend stretches beyond his tiny framework, and soon yours will too once he teaches you the ways of the outlaw. Tell your momma you won’t be home in time for dinner. Unless there’s pot roast. An outlaw always makes time for pot roast.
Available in both a grey colorway and an alternative cowboy brown, exclusive to www.kidrobot.com
Available now on 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
