Kidrobot’s newest collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation drops today at 1pm MT / 3pm ET!
We’ve made just TWENTY carefully crafted 20-inch Dunny sculptures in honor of the most famous quote attributed to the iconic artist, which is lettered on the back. The analog TV test pattern (Warhol was a child of the analog generation) on the front pays tribute to the artist’s love affair with the medium by which so many achieved that fame.

We’ve made just TEN carefully crafted 20-inch Dunny sculptures in honor of the iconic artist’s “Giant Size $ 1.57 Each” artwork. Warhol originally made the piece in black and white for the cover of a 1963 album of interviews with himself and several fellow artists, but he revisited the art in 1971 in the form of four colored, hand-printed versions limited to 75 prints each. This 20-inch Dunny was inspired by the red version.

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
