Travis Cain wants you SpankyStokes readers to know he just put up on eBay an entire set of these rare-ass wood Dunnys you heard about right here last week. There are only 300 of these between the four variants, and the distribution is not equal. He's selling his own Dunny 2009 APs, and each one will come signed and numbered with a hand-painted (spraypaint, acrylic and stencil) print commemorating the project. The bidding has begun. Of course there's at least one joker flipping a wood Dunny using another artist's name for keyword credit. Fail. But here's how to not fail: bid directly from the artist, and you just might win.

Sideshow Barker will be available for sale by Cookies -n- Cream on September 18th at 12am EST, www.BakedinNY.com, and the figure will retail for $64.99!
This awesome paint job of "Sideshow Barker" Pugzee was designed and executed by Brandy Anderson. Brandy Anderson is responsible for painting every prototype produced by Inu Art and has been working with Dave Cortes for over 6 years. Sideshow Barker, appropriately named by Brandy Anderson was conceived when Dave Cortes dropped a blank resin casting at Brandy's place with the idea that she should paint it whatever way she wanted. Dave was blown away when Brandy dropped off the tatted pug as Coney Island's Illustrated Man.
Sideshow Barker will come with the same accessories as the Jailbreaker and Streetwise versions, but will also include a limited color casting of his boardwalk buddy "Vinny Hotdogs". This dirty Nathan Hotdog eatin' Rat will come in 40 different casted colors. Each casted color will be limited to 5 of a kind. Colors will range from opaque to clear tinted and will be selected at random with every Sideshow Barker purchase. Sideshow barker will be limited to 200 pieces with its limited accessory "Vinny Hotdogs". Sideshow Barker will also come with a cool boardwalk base and Retro Packaging, the figure will retail for $64.99.
*Please note that the Vinny Hotdogs pictured in the images will not be the one that comes with Sideshow Barker. The one that comes with every purchase will be selected at random from the 5 limited colors.
