Speaking of Wooden Dunny's... David Weeks studio creates "Chiseler" for Kidrobot New York

Brooklyn designer, David Weeks, has given Dunny -- Kidrobot's artist-interpreted vinyl collectible -- its first-ever large scale wooden revamp, christened the Chiseler. Modeled after Weeks' poseable timber toys Hanno the Gorilla and Ursa the Bear, the ultra-exclusive Chiseler (only five were fashioned) is hand-hewn and sanded from zebra-striped hard pine, creating sculpted facets out of Dunny's familiar roundness.

Despite the swivel head and arms, each distinct Chiseler is less a plaything than an individualized artwork, right down to its custom-crafted wooden crate displaying the action figure's laser-etched image. Each sculptural Chiseler subtly differs from its sibling, resulting in a real Dunny rarity: a one-of-a-kind creation made just for you.
