What does 2017 hold for you? While we’re not sure, the Clairvoyant just might reveal your path, beginning on Friday the 13th. J*RYU and Kidrobot invite you to gaze into the future with the release of the 8” Clairvoyant Dunny featuring an intricate, all-over-sculpt and a beautifully clever 3” crystal ball companion Dunny. This elaborate, luxurious set is the harbinger of the Arcane Divination project and the blind box Dunny series slated for April. Speaking of which, check out the clever teaser shot below which appears to reveal the Hanged Man Dunny from Jon-Paul Kaiser.
Clairvoyant will be available on Friday (1.13.17) in the OG ivory white ($99.99) from select retailers and Kidrobot.com. In addition, there’s a KR-exclusive Rosewood edition which will be released on Friday (8 AM PST) as well, exclusively from Kidrobot.com.

Huck Gee has just teased the newest character to join the Gold Life series line by Mighty Jaxx, Torsin The Bounty Hunter.

Jason Freeny x Kidrobot – 5” X-Ray Dunny is the Perfect Counterpart to the 8” Visible Dunny
When Kidrobot revealed the 8” Visible Dunny (1000 pcs, $75, 4/17) by Jason Freeny, many mentioned that they were hoping for a dissected style design as well. Those hopes have become reality with today’s news: the 5” X-ray Dunny (1000 pcs, $29.99, 7/17) ! X-ray features Freeny’s signature cut-away anatomical aesthetic. So the circle seems complete with the 5” and 8” Dunnys spanning Freeny’s two main anatomical styles. Unless, there’s a surprise in the works… Hit the gallery after the jump to compare the 5” X-Ray with the 8” Visible Dunny.
Mab Graves x Kidrobot – Dreamer Dunny 8” (7.17)
Kidrobot will bring Pop Surreal painter Mab Graves’ talent to the designer toys with the upcoming 8” Dreamer Dunny. The pink Dreamer Dunny features the artist’s signature aesthetic with a vintage-style, hyper-detailed face with large, bright eyes—a common feature in her work. From the turn-arounds the face appears to be sculpted (nice!). Here’s hoping the paint application is able to convey Graves’ popular painting style. The Dunny will feature 3D butterfly accents to complete the surreal package. Limited to 1000 pieces, this one is slated for a July ‘17 drop and will retail for $74.99.
