In celebration of ALL the individuals that have helped build and keep alive this thriving art community, Kidrobot is proud to introduce the first Designer Con Dunny Series.  This Dunny Mini Series celebrates art featuring 18 individual Dunny designs from a few of the countless artists who have been a part of DCON’s growth through the years.

Over 15 years ago, Kidrobot brought art to life in the form of vinyl for the first time.  Through our history we have tried to support the creators, the groundbreakers, the artist and the art.  While our organization has evolved throughout the years as all organizations must do in order to stay alive, our core principles and mission of bringing art to life still remains.  Supporting the art community, inspiring creation and providing a platform to bring emerging / groundbreaking artists to the forefront is at the root of who we are and what we believe in.

From the passionate specialty art toy stores and gallery owners who have continued to support art, imagination and creativity… to the tens and hundreds of thousands of people who appreciate, support and share art, artists, and those who challenge the boring with others… to the artists who have kept believing, creating, pushing, hustling and sacrificing for the opportunity to introduce something new into this world, THIS SERIES IS IN CELEBRATION OF YOU!!

It started in 2005 in a 1100 sq. ft room and titled “VTN” (Vinyl Toy Network.) Fast forward to 2017 to over 500 vendors and 35,000 people in attendance, Designer Con aka DCON is now one the most highly anticipated annual events in the designer toy scene.  Celebrating artists that are part of (or have been part of) Designer Con over the years, the Kidrobot x DCON Vinyl Figure Mini Series is a shout out to artists loyalty and creativity. Highlighting different art, styles, and design, this mini-series is a small bite out of the extensive talent that Art and events bring together.

DESIGNERCON: JAMES GROMAN BRINGS HIS TWISTED ART STYLE TO DC SUPER HEROES AND SUPER-VILLAINS AS THE NEXT DC ARTISTS ALLEY DESIGNER FOR DC COLLECTIBLES #DCON18 Fri, 16 Nov 2018 20:00:09 +0000 Groman’s Unique Takes on Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face  Will Hit Stores in October 2019


Hours before the DesignerCon 2018 show floor opens, superstar designer toy artist James Groman revealed via Instagram his monstrous reimaginings of Batman and his Rogues Gallery for his upcoming DC Artists Alley designer vinyl collaboration with DC Collectibles.

Groman is best known for his outlandish designs as seen in many of his works including the highly popular Madballs toy series. Groman now brings his signature art style to the DC universe and offers his terrifying spin on Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face as 7”-scale designer vinyl figures. The figures are designed and sculpted by the artist and will be on display at this weekend’s DesignerCon convention in Anaheim, CA, at the DC Collectibles booth (#1500).

“When DC Collectibles asked me to design and sculpt my own renditions of DC’s iconic Dark Knight and a few of his villainous adversaries, I was excited and intrigued,” said Groman. “Growing up, I wasn’t as big a fan of costumed heroes like most of my friends and was usually drawn to characters like Swamp Thing, Monster of Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night. With that said, I’ve always been a Batman fan, mostly because of his dark nature and origins, and he has THE BEST villains. Working with Jim Fletcher and Trevor Zammit at DC Collectibles on these figures has been so creatively satisfying! It was interesting to see just how far we could take the designs but still remain respectful of each character’s basic DNA. I can only hope this collection leads to even more collaborations with DC Collectibles.”


Groman’s DC Artists Alley designer vinyls will hit stores in October 2019 and are available to preorder now. DesignerCon attendees at this weekend’s convention can take home a custom art print and enamel pin designed by Groman.


Full details about Groman’s DC Artists Alley designer vinyl figures and his additional DesignerCon exclusives are below:

Dark Horse Comics Announces HELLBOY Day 2019 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 20:00:05 +0000 Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Mike Mignola’s Legendary Creation on March 23, 2019


November 15, 2018- Next year, on Saturday March 23, 2019, Dark Horse Comics will celebrate the 25th anniversary of legendary comic book creator Mike Mignola’s most famous creation with Hellboy Day. In 1994, Dark Horse Comics published the debut issue of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction and introduced comic book readers to the Right Hand of Doom, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and one of the most iconic comic book characters—and universes—of all time. For 2019’s Hellboy Day celebration, Dark Horse will publish a 25th anniversary, promotional edition of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction issue 1, featuring a new cover by Mignola and colorist Dave Stewart, which will be given away at participating comic book shops; and select stores across the country will host Hellboy Day events.


“When I created Hellboy way back when I never imagined he would be around long enough to celebrate a 25th anniversary,” said Mike Mignola. “I’m grateful to the writers, artists, colorists and letterers who’ve joined me in telling Hellboy stories for all these years. And, of course, so grateful to the fans. This thing could not exist without their support and it’s a pleasure every time I get to go out to meet them.” Mike Mignola will appear at a Hellboy Day signing at Earth 2 Comics in Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles on March 23.


Dark Horse is inviting comic book retailers to celebrate this milestone anniversary for the world’s greatest paranormal investigator by holding store events and sales of Hellboy titles. In addition, Dark Horse will be creating a series of Hellboy Day promotional materials for retailers, including a Hellboy Tattoo Sheet, a Right Hand of Doom bookmark, a window cling, an open/close sign, and a new, folded version of the Hellboy double sided poster and Mignolaverse timeline that debuted at New York Comic Con. Retailers will have the chance to order promotional, giveaway materials and are invited to take advance of additional backlist sale pricing in order to hold celebrations at their stores. Qualifying retailers who take advantage of backlist sales promotion will be automatically entered to win special prizing packages from Dark Horse.


“Hellboy fans: please make sure to tell your retailer you want your local store to participate in this awesome celebration today,” said Matt Parkinson, Dark Horse Vice President of Marketing. “And retailers: look for the December Previews for February on Sale (Issue #363) for details on backlist sales and contest deals, as well as ordering information on the promotional material being created for the event.”


For nearly 25 years, Mignola and a host of celebrated writers and artists have chronicled the adventures of Hellboy facing his supposed destiny as Beast of the Apocalypse, and explored the mysterious backstories of B.P.R.D. agents including Professor Trevor Bruttenholm and Abe Sapien. Hellboy’s adventures have appeared in what are known as the Mignolaverse — the strange, shared universe of comic books and graphic novels, comprised of acclaimed titles including Hellboy & the B.P.R,D., Abe Sapien, B.P.R.D., Crimson Lotus, Frankenstein Underground, Lobster Johnson, The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and Witchfinder. Hellboy has appeared in graphic novels and comic books, prose novels and short story collections, two animated features, two live action films, toy lines and all manner of merchandise. Neil Marshall’s forthcoming Hellboy film starring David Harbour, Sasha Lane, Ian McShane, Penelope Mitchell, and Milla Jovovich will be released by Lionsgate on April 12, 2019.


For more information about the Mignolaverse comic books and graphic novels, as well as announcements of Dark Horse Comics’ plans for 2019 to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the first Hellboy comic book, Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, follow the company on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
