Spotted in the Wild : Horrible Adorables x Kidrobot – The Curly Horned Dunnylope

HorribleAdorables_-1

The duo of Jordan Elise and  Christopher Lees, better known as the artists behind the Horrible Adorables line of fantastic felt fauna, have once again collaborated with Kidrobot to bring their signature aesthetic and vision to the world of vinyl toys. Over the years, they’ve created an adorable army of vinyl with Kidrobot. If you’ve been collecting for awhile, you likely remember the Horrible Adorables line of seven original vinyl figures which launched in 2016. Earlier this year, they dreamt up the Share Bear conjoined-bear figure as part of Kidrobot’s Care Bear artist line.

The one thing they had yet to do was take a turn on Kidrobot’s premiere platform, Dunny.  That changes with the release of The Curly Horned Dunnylope this Friday.  Riffing off their original multi-colored felt animals, the artists have designed the Dunnylope with an overlapping stylish deco pattern, call it ‘fur’. In the OG edition which we had the pleasure of photographing in the wild, the red, blue and green segments join fairly seamlessly into a satisfying whole that is both part of the character design and a stylish, minimalist element to be appreciated on its own merits.  While not immediately recognizable, the Dunnylope’s horns are rendered in silver—crossing in a loop in the front, wrapping in swirls around each ear and then looping across the back once again. The minimalist silver returns in the tail, nestled amongst the stylish, tri-color body pattern.

The seventh release in Kidrobot’s 5” Dunny Series, The Curly Horned Dunnylope is a fun species with a stylish flair and an alert, almost ornery presence.  It will be released on Friday, May 25th at 9 AM PDT in the standard red+green+blue edition available from Kidrobot.com and select retailers as well as at least one Kidrobot.com exclusive edition (brown+blue+pink with gold accents).
