Pokémon's Ash and Pikachu as Gangstas?!? Custom Munny & Dunny by Ben DeFever!

Artist Ben DeFever has been a fan of Pokémon for over 15 years now, so it only made sense that when he created pieces for Kidrobot's MunnyMunth contest back in May that it would be based on Ash and Pikachu. Making a sly nod to the fact that these anime characters have gained "real street cred" since their inception, DeFever made the duo up — a custom 4-inch Mini Munny and a 3-inch Dunny — as gangsta (or gangsta wannabes) named the "Master Ballerz." I applaud DeFever for taking such a potentially overwhelming project… and though he does need to work on the cleanness of his sculpts, the crispness of his lines, and the color blocked element of his swaths, I think this is the sort of work that a customizer needs to do to push themselves to the next level! This set is currently available to buy in the Lift Store & Gallery online shop for $250.
