Dunny Dementia - Dunny 2012

 About a month after the unofficial leak of the lineup, Kidrobot has officially taken the lid off of Dunny 2012. As you might recall, the series features designs from 14 artists -- Andrew Bell, Attaboy, Scribe, Jeremiah Ketner, Jon-Paul Kaiser, Junko Mizuno, Kronk, MAD, Mauro Gatti, Sergio Mancini, Nakanari, Pac23, Tara McPherson, and Triclops Studio. Looking through these photos reveals a strong offering with plenty of custom sculplts including Andrew Bell's four-armed flame god, MAD's respirator wearing graff artist, Scribe's giraffe and Junko Mizuno's lovely lady with clear-ish hair. In all there are twenty designs which presumably includes colorways such as the two versions of Junko's Dunny. Many of the other designs push the Dunny shape with what look like custom add-ons including the sweet clear blue visor of Pac23's futuristic hitman. Finally, we'll go out on a tiny limb and say that AB's 3inch is probably a good preview of the general look of his upcoming 8" SDCC exclusive Dunny.

In a bit of a surprise, the bonus Dunny for those that purchase a case from select retailers will come from none other than the masked wonder himself, Sucklord! It all begins on June 21st with blindboxes for the standard $9.95.
