The Magician and Friends x Unbox — Oni Warrior Tattoo Edition (1.26)


As part of their regular weekend drops Unbox Industries will bring you an online release of the new Oni Warrior Tattoo Edition soft vinyl from The Magician and FriendsSteven Choi and William Tsang.  First released at Toy Soul back in mid-December, this edition features a split blue/red design with elaborate tattoo graphics throughout Oni's body, front and rear.  While we've seen a smaller amount of tattoo-style deco on at least one previous release (STS ver from April), the graphics appear to be different between the editions.

Gary Ham x Kidrobot -- Autumn Stag 20" Dunny Pre-Order


Talk about going BIG.  Starting with his well-received 3" Autumn Stag design for the DTA Dunny Series, Gary Ham has designed its big brother. The 20" Autumn Stag Dunny takes full advantage of the larger size mostly notably with three 5" Dunny Birds and a functional swing.  The sculpted-in wood texture is a nice match for the production challenges posed by the larger 20" size. 

For this special 20" Dunny, Kidrobot is taking a special route with sales by offering it via pre-order.  Limited to 40 pieces, the 20" Autumn Stag Dunny is available for pre-order for $650 exclusively at Kidrobot.com. As a sweet bonus, twenty lucky collectors will receive a special Dunny Bird that will be signed, doodled or fully customized.  One collector will receive a fully-painted Dunny Bird by Gay Ham.  This is likely the most elaborate 20" Dunny to-date as well as one of the rarest (?) at just 40 pieces.
