It’s been awhile since we helped reveal the artists for Kidrobot’s upcoming Arcane Divination Dunny Series slated for a February 2017 drop. The series promises a different approach than previous blind box series. Series curator J*Ryu has hand-picked four artists—Godmachine, Camilla D’errico, Jon-Paul Kaiser, and Tokyo Jesus—to help him create his vision, a collection of Tarot-themed Dunnys based around the more well-known Major Arcana cards.
Since the artist reveals, the series has started to take shape with J*Ryu’s post of the silhouettes of the figures and more recently, with photos of his crazy standalone 8” Arcane Divination: Clairvoyant Dunny courtesy of Strangecat Toys’ pre-order listing ($100)—the only source we’ve spotted so far.
As you can see, the Dunny features an ambitious sculpted design, seamlessly blending numerous fateful symbols across the entire figure surface, from the iconic Dunny ears down to the feet. The well-done paint gives the illusion of being carved from a single piece of ivory or bone. On its own Clairvoyant has all the signs of a showcase release, a perfect exclamation point for the Arcane Divination project. Somehow though, J*Ryu and Kidrobot decided to shoot for the stars by including a 3” crystal ball companion Dunny with mirrored head and bone white ears and torso. Crazy.
