October is the perfect time of year. The weather (at least where we are) is the the only time of year you really feel like mother nature might exists. It’s also the best holiday of the year! Halloween! So we were more than excited when we talked to The Bots to create this super cute and spooky series that releases tomorrow, Friday 13th, 2017 on Kidrobot.com. We asked them a few questions about the series so our readers could get to know the series a little more…. here we go!
1) What was your first piece with Kidrobot? The very first piece we ever created for something Kidrobot related was a custom Munny for—get this—Tales From the Sneaky Crypt, a Halloween themed custom show at Kidrobot London! Our first Kidrobot production piece was 5 years later when we released a set of Dunnys as part of the debut DTA Dunny series.
2) What do you love about working with Kidrobot? Specifically we loved working with the team that was assigned to our project. We asked a lot of everyone to help bring our vision to life and every person we encountered was so pleasant, talented, and accommodating. Without their knowledge and help, we would have never been able to achieve some of the cooler things we placed in the series.
7) what’s something your fans might not know about you? That our last name isn’t Bot! Gasp!
8) What is your favorite thing about the art/vinyl toy world? The best part of the scene is without a doubt the community. We have made so many friends over the years that range from collectors, to artists, to gallery owners, and production companies. The scene is so niche and everyone is extremely passionate and it seems we meet new cool people on a daily basis.
GWP ALERT!!! The first 50 people to buy 24 units at kidrobot.com on Friday the 13th get an exclusive Gift With Purchase dunny!!!

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
