In anticipation for tomorrow’s release of the Dunnibal Dunny by ilovedust I thought it prudent to take a closer look at one of the most intricately printed Dunnies this year. Dunnibal is the latest 8 inch Dunny figure by English design studio ilovedust (previous 8 inch designs include Zulu Mong from the 3 Bears series and more recently Togo Monroe). Upon closer viewing the printing looks surprisingly clean for so many layers of printing. The most noticable error would probably be where the top parts of the lips connect towards the middle of the mouth, it is very slight on my figure but I can see it becoming a potential problem with others. Other than that I believe you will very happy if you decide to pick one up at your favorite toy retailer tomorrow. If you’re not keen on this blue colorway there is also a red chase version which is hidden in 1 out of every 6 boxes. We will have them available the same time as all other Kidrobot retailers tomorrow at 11AM EDT on Thursday September 26th. Enjoy the rest of the photos!

Denbu is a hapless fellow who’s luck is always running on empty. No matter the occasion Denbu always winds up mauled by some unforseen event. Some say he’s born under a bad sign, others say there’s a rational scientific explanation to his bad luck. Whatever the reason, Denbu is just one tiger attack away from exiting the emergency room and entering your heart!
Denbu plushes are designed by Abe Lincoln Jr. and hand crocheted by LEESASAUR. Each design “I Agore You Denbu”, “Damaged Goods” Denbu, and “Dapper Denbu” are a micro run of 6 pieces each. They’re 5.25″ x 3.25″ and will be available for $45 at the myplasticheart booth #113. Abe Lincoln Jr. and Leesasaur will be available at the booth to sign and speak to fans (Time and date to be announced).
Abe Lincoln Jr. is a Graphic Artist living in Brooklyn NY. His work is informed by skateboarding, punk rock, and mid-century modern design.

Somewhere on an island beneath the depths of the equator, emerged LEESASAUR, an artist certain she was of the reptilian species.
With her primary medium being yarn, Leesasaur crochets a variety of creations ranging from popular iconic-video game and movie characters, to her own tragically cute “Damaged Goods” and “I Agore You” lines.
Inspired by an overwhelming amount of feelings, and need for tangibility, Leesasaur strives to create pieces that will ultimately bring happiness. Every project is her own pattern and engineering.
