VIDEO REVIEW: Junko Mizuno × Kidrobot - “Berry Chocolate Lady” 8-inch Dunny!

Thanks for our good friends over at Kidrobot, we've been able to hold in our hands the upcoming Junko Mizuno designed “Berry Chocolate Lady” 8-inch Dunny! This San Diego Comic-Con exclusive colorway of the “Violet Soda Girl,” an upscaled rendition of the highly sought after 2012 Dunny Series “Purple Soda Girl” design, is a “brown that looks like chocolate,” according to Mizuno, who “really like[s] her because she kind of looks like my very first toy that came out in Japan over ten years ago.” You might notice an added element to the chest for this version, which was conceived by Mizuno “when I heard from Kidrobot about making 8-inch version of Soda Girl. I didn’t want it to be just an enlarged same thing, I wanted to change and add something new so it wouldn’t be boring. So I changed the colors a bit and added my favorite elements that often appear in my drawings, heart & skulls.”

Berry Chocolate Lady” will be available at Kidrobot’s SDCC Booth #5645 for $100 apiece, which can be signed by Mizuno during her appearances there on Thursday, July 9th and on Friday, July 10th, 2015, at 1-3PM Pacific time each day.

This year, Kidrobot is generously extending a tiny portion of their SDCC Booth to both Kidrobot San Francisco and Kidrobot Las Vegas, allowing them to share a very limited quantity of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. This includes copies of “Berry Chocolate Girl,” which will be available beginning Thursday, July 9th at both locations. For those not lucky enough to attend the convention or visit either store, it seems unlikely that any copies of the piece will remain unsold by the end of the convention and thus not available from Kidrobot.com, but bear in mind that the proper “Violet Soda Lady” colorway will release in stores and online this July.
