Huck Gee x Kidrobot's "Post-Apocalypse" Dunny Series Predictions!

At this point, the previously announced revelation that Huck Gee has designed a complete Dunny series for early 2013 release seems a foregone conclusion… it's being whispered about everywhere and the name "Post-Apocalypse" is fairly solidly attached. In this follow-up to not only Gee's previous "Gold Life" outing but with an obvious nod to the recent "Apocalypse" Dunny series, one can only speculate what Gee and Kidrobot have cooked up for us this time… Or does it?

Based on the "Gold Life" series, designs that Gee had premiered in custom form where then modified for production release. So, with that in mind, we can make some firmly educated guesses as to some designs that might appear in this predicted upcoming artist series:

Neon Dog
I know you're probably thinking that we just saw this design in the Apocalypse series, but I have to believe it is more than a coincidence that this Mad Max inspired piece was released in a custom edition with a yellow mohawk instead of the production's red. And, of course, on a business level it allows Kidrobot to reuse a newly sculpted head and accessories.
Hotaru Copter Squad -
Copter Boy & Copter Girl
Yes, these were originally conceived has part of Gee's Gold Life mythos, but there's something so very Mad Max about the copter packs that I think these have a chance. Obviously, they'd be redesigned from Munnys into Dunnys and their attire might be altered, but the copter pack concept seems solid and they'd be producing the part for two releases in the series instead of just one.
