Jump Jumper Ant's "Senbadzuru Clan" Custom Dunnys for DMX7!

Méxican artist Jump Jumper Ant shares her wonderful, battle-ready Dunny clan design, with the five pieces prepared to jump into the fray against the other contributions to the upcoming Dunny Hecho en México (or DMX) collective's "The Legend of the 10 Clans" blind boxed custom series. Featuring her signature resin doll eye feature, which have a Mona Lisa effect to them that seems to follow one around a room (see it in action here), is a wonderful samurai warrior design. From the beautifully crafted geta wooden sandals to the traditional topknot haircut known as a chonmage, these pieces even have an immaculately executed suji-kuma — the "sinew pattern" in makeup that is worn by the samurai hero in Japan's kabuki theatre! Now, these pieces are widely being reported as being called the "Senbazuru Clan", but I'm fairly certain that is a typo that is being repeated; the artist refers to these characters as "guardian warriors of the Temple of a thousand paper cranes" and the name Senbadzuru — with a "d" between the "a" and "z" — would translate from Japanese as "a thousand paper cranes". Thus, I'm fairly certain, that Jump Jumper Ant's contribution is supposed to be the "Senbadzuru Clan"!

As we previously announced, "The Legend of the 10 Clans" series (DMX7) will feature an amazing array of talent. The lineup has been revealed to be Avatar666, Cucaracha Borracha, El Hooligan, Jump Jumper Ant, Tadeo Mendoza, and Yoste KMKZ with special guests Charles Rodriguez, Gabriel Carpio, Igor Ventura, and Sergio Mancini. There will be three chase designs, made by Charles Rodriguez, El Hooligan, and Yoste KMKZ, as well as one Golden Ticket prize made by Gabriel Carpio, though the Golden Ticket winner will just have to cover shipping costs of it. Sales of the $105 apiece blind boxes (shipping not included) will begin on May 18th, 2017 at 11am Pacific time, with those interested simply emailing orders to dunnyhechoenmexico [at] gmail [dot] com, with a total of only 50 blind boxes available for sale!
