VIDEO REVIEW: Junko Mizuno × Kidrobot - “Berry Chocolate Lady” 8-inch Dunny!

Thanks for our good friends over at Kidrobot, we've been able to hold in our hands the upcoming Junko Mizuno designed “Berry Chocolate Lady” 8-inch Dunny! This San Diego Comic-Con exclusive colorway of the “Violet Soda Girl,” an upscaled rendition of the highly sought after 2012 Dunny Series “Purple Soda Girl” design, is a “brown that looks like chocolate,” according to Mizuno, who “really like[s] her because she kind of looks like my very first toy that came out in Japan over ten years ago.” You might notice an added element to the chest for this version, which was conceived by Mizuno “when I heard from Kidrobot about making 8-inch version of Soda Girl. I didn’t want it to be just an enlarged same thing, I wanted to change and add something new so it wouldn’t be boring. So I changed the colors a bit and added my favorite elements that often appear in my drawings, heart & skulls.”

Berry Chocolate Lady” will be available at Kidrobot’s SDCC Booth #5645 for $100 apiece, which can be signed by Mizuno during her appearances there on Thursday, July 9th and on Friday, July 10th, 2015, at 1-3PM Pacific time each day.

This year, Kidrobot is generously extending a tiny portion of their SDCC Booth to both Kidrobot San Francisco and Kidrobot Las Vegas, allowing them to share a very limited quantity of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. This includes copies of “Berry Chocolate Girl,” which will be available beginning Thursday, July 9th at both locations. For those not lucky enough to attend the convention or visit either store, it seems unlikely that any copies of the piece will remain unsold by the end of the convention and thus not available from Kidrobot.com, but bear in mind that the proper “Violet Soda Lady” colorway will release in stores and online this July.

DKE Toys x Manly Art - SDCC 2015 exclusive "Pimp2-D2’s Pimp Speeder"!!!

Feeling a bit Manly??? Well... after this bit of information, you should because we just got word from DKE Toys that they have teamed up with Jason Chalker aka 'Manly Art' once again to release a brand new figure... the "Pimp2-D2’s Pimp Speeder"!!! This exclusive DKE Toys release features a slick purple paint job with custom orange tinted wind screen, custom seats, and 3 different hood design decals for you to choose from. Now Pimp2-D2 can float along in style with his personal chauffeur on the Pimp Speeder’s Pimp-Glide Suspension on his never-ending quest to make the galaxy fly as can be! There’s even a compartment for storing pimp canes, pimp hat, weapons and anything else a pimpin’ droid might need. R2 figure not included but it does come with exclusive chauffeur figure. If you got the c3pHO figure or Pimp2D2 then you gotta have this one. The catch is, there are only 30 of them, and they each use a vintage star wars landspeeder from 1977... so be sure to head on over to the DKE Toys booth #5045 to secure one before they fly away for good!

Scott Wilkowski × Luke Chueh × Munky King’s “Infected Target” for SDCC!

Wisconsin-based artist and sculptor Scott Wilkowski’s true calling is elevating an art toy into true art, casting released pieces in resin around a skeletal system he's created for each. These fantastical inner workings are what make the classic concepts that Wilkowski tackles all the more memorable and, as sculptural works, they are in a league of their own. Teased by Munky King as a San Diego Comic-Con release, Wilkowski has partnered with contemporary artist Luke Chueh to “infected” — as Wilkowski calls his process — Chueh’s massive “Target” bear. The original figure is known for holding a paint brush which its freshly used to paint a target upon itself, a target — that in Wilkowski’s complex inner sculpt — will be directly over the bear’s heart… And a truer target there couldn't be, as it seems the bears skeletal system even mimics the look of a target around the heart. A wonderful interpretation, this limited edition release will be available from Munky King's SDCC Booth #4851 for an unannounced amount.

Super7’s “Masters of the Universe: Stage 01 Prototype Action Figure Collection!”

In the most thrilling game of ‘what if?’ since their release of the Alien action figure line, which launched the ReAction Figure phenomenon, Super7 have re-imagined if He-Man and the Masters of the Universe were sculpted in the 3¾-inch tall style of the 1970's Star Wars line from Kenner. Titled “Masters of the Universe: Stage 01 Prototype Action Figure Collection,” the four unpainted figures in this set each come with their uniquely appropriate accessories: He-Man and the Power Sword, Skeletor and his Havoc Staff, Mer-Man and his sword, and Beastman with his whip. Available exclusively previously announced “Skeletor’s Lair” pop-up at Super7’s San Diego store (701 8th Avenue, Corner of 8th & G), taking place solely during the days of San Diego Comic-Con, each set will be $60 apiece and be limited to a mere one per person.
