Thursday is here! Friday is ALMOST here… so lets have a throwback Thursday post by our friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking.
Codename Unknown my butt, this dude is the fish man that fell in love with the cleaning lady in that movie. Or maybe it’s not, because Sekure D not only created this before that film was a thing, but this is also the first ever five inch Dunny from Kidrobot. Being first is awesome because only one person can ever claim that title. No one remembers the person that was the second to do something, because by that point the path had already been cleared. Just look in the comments section of any social media post to see how important being the first to do something is. Ten people will claim it, but there, sitting at the top, is the one person who could type fast enough to have actually done it. That person just got a slight taste of what being an innovator feels like. A very, very slight taste.
No five inch Dunny collection can be called complete unless you have the figure that pioneered the platform. Surprisingly, you have not missed your chance to add this piece to your collection as a few are still available 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
