Jura "Double Zero" Backstory:
The Double Zero Units were created as all other Jura units, deep within the bowels of the invading mother ships.After being hunted and snared from the oceans of their home world, they were fitted with the gruesome mind control cones that make slaves of all Jura units.
At the start of their long suffering terms of service, all Jura units undergo a classification process. The more nimble and aggressive units are sent into the various arms of military service, whereas the less intelligent, gentle creatures are designated as worker drones. Often imprisoned within older, patched up power units, these Jura’s are put to use on the vast, dark, noisy industrial sectors of the mother ships. Huge expansive decks pressed up against the outer hulls and bulkheads, housing all of the running mechanisms and smaller planet voyage vehicles.
Jura Double Zero units have been said to be the forgotten backbone of the invading force, underpinning all systems and services on board the long voyage vessels.

South Park Mini Dead Kenny
Oh my god, we killed Kenny! South Park and Kidrobot kick off an awesome new collaboration beginning July 21.

Sculpted to look every bit the worst for wear, Dead Kenny features exposed brains, bloody ribs, authentic cuts, scratches, and scrapes, and an arm that falls off the bone. Sporting the seriously distressed look befitting a 4th grader who’s died a hell of a lot more than his fair share, Kenny is just the 9-year old to put South Park on the Kidrobot map. Grab this limited figure for $10.95 (£8.90 UK; 10.30 € Europe), releasing at SDCC and available in Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com and specialty retailers July 21.

El Bandito Muerto by Jesse Hernandez
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Jesse Hernandez unveils his outlaw of death – El Bandito Muerto.

The removable sombrero and sculpted detailed serape lay claim to Bandito’s and Hernandez’ own Mexican roots, but the colossal sculpted sneakers and somber six-shooter are less than subtle clues to this mean muerto’s approach to life and death on the streets. Limited to only 250 pieces at $100 Jesse will be signing from 1-3pm.
Kidrobot KidØlaf 20 by The Beast Brothers
Nothing goes down better after a good pillage than a milkshake! At least, that’s how the newest 8-inch Kidrobot figure sees it.

The 1 in 6 chase features an alternate colorway, but comes with all the essential Viking tools for sipping sweets and pillaging villages. Available beginning July 21 for $50.00 (£40.10 UK; 46.50 € Europe).
