Introducing the Kidrobot Message Board Dunny Series 1, the first Dunny Series culled from talent within the KR community! I have to say that I am not too surprised that these Dunnys look absolutely amazing. The KR community is full of people who live and breathe toys. I am 100% sure that part of the next crop of professional toy artists will come from the KR boards. Here's the official press release a boardie sent over to us:

The boards are full of talent so 3 boardies, Tim Munz (timselF), oggyboy (Igor Ventura), and mANNe (Manny Rivas), got together with an idea to put together a custom dunny series by some of the best artists on the Kidrobot forums. It was only fitting to call the series 'Most Wanted': Message Board Artist Series as it features some of the most wanted underground urban artists and customizers from the boards!

Anyone who wanted to be a part of this had the chance to submit their designs, and after making some hard decisions they ended up with 15 artists:Nikejerk, timselF, FAS, oggyboy, grimsheep, AW177, Rsin, Lysol, DFed, Luihz Unreal, Sergio Mancini, Del730, WuzOne, gawein, and MikeDie. 2 "guest artists" came on board to contribute one chase figure each and they are none other than kool artist draifet and Flying Fortress!

The series goes all out including over 20 original designs with chases, variants, and even a golden ticket! Each custom comes in professionally printed blind boxes with inserts showing the designs and ratios! There will be full size color posters available and even some other fun surprises here and there.

This series has a run of 160 blind boxes with about half of them spoken for through a pre-order on the boards, which sold out in 2 days! We estimate the official drop to be around mid/late October. The price would run about $45/BB and that would include shipping within the US. Discounts will be availble for purchases of 3 or more. Profits will be divided equally among the artists and the artists only!

I think it's amazing how 3 guys, one from germany (Tim), one from Brazil, (Igor), and lastly Southern California (Manny) were able to organize and coordinate 17 artists from all around the world to make one amazing custom series!

Special Message from Manny, Tim, and Igor:
Finally, just want to say that this was our way of giving tribute to Kidrobot for what they've managed to do in the urban art scene and for supporting us through the KR message boards. To thank and encourage every underground artist out there! Keep doing what your doing.

A special thank goes out to Justin Bretter for all your help with this series =]

"And I tell you what...all the designs are SICK!

I also haven't seen the chases....but all the standard designs are riduculous. They're all soooo different but awesome at the same time.

Incredible series. If anyone manages to even get an entire standard set...it's gonna be epic!"

"Unbelievable!!!

This looks totally awesome, perfect, over the top, genius, super-duper cool !!! Amazing designs by all of you! I have to be part of the next series..."

"... but I was thinking, and this is what I call community. We all managed to accomplish (well, almost) something incredible. Several artists, from several countries all over the world, most of them don`t know each other, united to bring something amazing together. I`m really proud of all you guys!"

Suckadelic Sucklord 600 Suck-Off custom show at APW

by
Suckadelic's Group Suck-Off custom toy show at APW Gallery in LIC, NY was nuts. It was a hot, sweaty, drunken mess and it was awesome. A huge crowd, a buncha cool-ass people, lots of professional-quality custom toys and someone left in an ambulance before I even got to step inside. Not joking. Here are the crappy pics I took with my camera phone because like an idiot, I left the memory chip out of my digital camera:


The Sucklord himself. Filming the whole time. He's probably gonna spend the next week splicing film together to make something offensive out of his footage.

This is Sucklord filming a couple of the dudes from Wasted Talent. I think that's a stripper about to do something naughty down there...

Sucklord & one of the Wasted Talent crew

Sucklord 600 plush. I think that pink dot means it was sold. Pretty damn cool plush I must say.

NEMO actually had a working camera, unlike me. So I took a picture of him taking a picture of me.

Nemo's custom Sucklord.

Triclops Studio's custom Sucklord.

Andy's custom Sucklord (Andy runs ToysREvil)

Koi Three's custom Sucklord

OsirisOrion's custom Sucklord. I met OO for the first time here & got to hang with him for a while. He's awesome. He's going to be signing at the Tenacious booth at the 2010 NYCC.

MCA's custom Sucklord.

Koji Harmon's custom Sucklord.

Kano's custom Sucklord, sold early!

Jesse Hernandez's custom Sucklord.

Ano Koto (Devil Robots) custom Sucklord.

Dead Presidents custom Sucklord.









Suck Chef custom Sucklord by Sara Jo Marks.


Burt Banger's custom Sucklord.

Charlie Becker's custom Sucklord.

See all those people sitting around outside APW Gallery? We weren't out there because LIC offers spectacular views or anything. It's because there was an old lady lying in the doorway. The ambulance came after about 10 minutes.
Initially I thought the Sucklord pushed her down the stairs. Or maybe the guys from Wasted Talent. All denied any knowledge of what happened.
Turns out she just tripped on a step on her way in.

Tom Lichtman showed up with a sample case of the Sucklord's upcoming Suckadelic Action Art Card Series.

The Suckadelic Action Art Card Series are awesome. Wrapped in perfect old-skool waxy paper.
I will send a pack to someone this upcoming Saturday September 12th, all ya gotta do is tell me which artist contributed the "Dr. Munk Lord" piece to this custom show.
Email your answer to tenacioustoys@gmail.com, make the subject SUCKADELIC ACTION ART CARD PACK FOR ME. I'll put all the right answers into a hat on Friday the 11th and pick a winner.
