Kidrobot DesignerCon Exclusives Pre-Order (10.16 - 10.18)


Kidrobot has lined up arguably their strongest DesignerCon releases to-date.  Their four DCon exclusives include three special edition Dunnys and a brand-new Hello Kitty art toy from Candie Bolton.  Speaking of Dunnys, KR will have the La Flame 8" Dunny Ice Edition from Junko Mizuno (250 pcs, $100), the Santa Muerte 8" Dunny Prosperity Edition (70 pcs, $100) by Stephanie Buscema, and the Spiritus Dea: Bastet 3" Dunny DCon edition from Candie Bolton.

While we love ourselves some Dunnys, the highlight of Kidrobot's DCon exclusives just might be the new Hello Kitty 9" art figure Blush Edition (250 pieces, $75) designed by Candie Bolton. Holding a cluster of golden Kitty ballons, the figure features an adolescent Hello Kitty, bright and colorful but dealing with the shyness and uncertainty that comes with growing up. From the youthful outfit to her downward gaze and inward feet, Bolton's Hello Kitty endears with her awkward in-between state: part child, part future adult. She also reminds us that becoming an adult doesn't require parting with dreams, imagination and play.  All of us can relate to this most human Kitty.

As is their tradition, Kidrobot will offer their DCon exclusives via an online pre-order starting on Wednesday (10.16) and running thru Friday (10.18) with limited daily quantities of all four toys. Limited quantities of each figure will be available at DesignerCon (12.22 - 12.24) from the KR Booth [#2210].

U: Added release details and corrected description.

LA street artist ABCNT has once again teamed up with Mighty Jaxx, this time  to create an art toy of of his Alice in Wasteland imagery.  A long way from the fantastic sights of Wonderland, Alice is left to try and sort out the literal mess she finds herself in, with little more than a face mask. The diorama style toy features Alice seated on a pile of all-too-realistic trash, dying flower in hand as a reminder of what's been lost. The Alice in Wasteland polystone figure (8.5" will be available for pre-order for 24-hours beginning this Saturday (10.19) at 8 AM PDT for $249 (includes global shipping) from the Mighty Jaxx shop.  This is the artist's second toy with Mighty Jaxx, following 2017's Bitchy Rich.

If you act quickly, there's still time to pick up the Alice in Wasteland print from Silent Stage (18x24", $124.99).
