Johnny Draco x Kidrobot – Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny

unnamed
Friday saw the release of the Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny (5”) from Johnny Draco and Kidrobot.  The darkly whimsical Mr. Watt makes clever use of the Jason Freeny-designed Anatomical Dunny sculpt with a story split across the two halves.  Blissfully unaware Mr. Watt on the left, and struck-by-lighting victim on the right or perhaps the outer and inner personas of the character.  This first use of the Anatomical sculpt as a sub-platform in its own right looks great and has us excited for the potential of additional artist takes. 

The 5” Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny ($39.99) is available in both a standard blue edition (1000 pcs.)  available at various retailers like 3DRetro as well as a KR-Exclusive Mono Edition (200 pcs.)  available only at Kidrobot.com
