Kidrobot and Designer Con are honored to premiere the official Kidrobot x DCON Designer Con Dunny Art Figure Series at Designer Con 2018 in Anaheim, California.

It all started back 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 Designer Con Dunny Art Figure 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.

Featuring designs from artists Greg “Craola” Simkins, Flat Bonnie, KaNO, Hyperactive Monkey, Deph, Chris Lee, Scott Tolleson, Jon-Paul Kaiser, Ragnar, Chet Zar and Paul Frank this commemorative Dunny Mini Series is definitely one you wont want to miss.  This Kidrobot Dunny Series will premiere at Kidrobot booth #2010!

Kidrobot x DCON 2018 Exclusives

Azazel Bloodmilk 5” Dunny Art Figure by JPK

Ever watchful, this winged creature is marked as the fallen angel thrown to eternal fire. The creature stands as a representation of the human spirits need for rebellion, temptation, and the seductive lure of the unknown. This “Blood Milk” version of the Arcane Divination Azazel Dunny will only be available during Designer Con and is fused with dark reds, this “carved marble” and “porcelain” Dunny is brought together in pieces to make a whole. This broken figure is a small part of the bigger plan and is available as the first Arcane Divination x Designer Con exclusive. Limited to 300 pieces. $55

Astra + Orbit 8” Art Figure by Tara McPherson

Astra + Orbit are from the imagination of New York artist, Tara McPherson, and can be found beyond the lucid seas and pink skies. This mystic couple stands elegantly to assist in your journey beyond sleep. This limited edition color way of Astra and Orbit is a limited edition of 100 pieces and can only be found in limited quantities at each of the conventions Kidrobot attends.  Only 20 pieces available at DCON. $80

Custom 8” Eyes Dunny Art Figure by MP Gautheron

Last month Kidrobot teamed up again with French artist MP Gautheron for the MP Gautheron Custom Dunny Series 2 featuring 15 new one-of-a-kind custom sculpted and hand painted Dunny creations exclusively on Kidrobot.com. This single piece remains after we were unable to reach the purchaser.  Their loss is one lucky DCON Attendees gain.

This incredibly detailed art piece is one of three “Eyes” Dunnys in this 15 piece series. In school MP would draw eyes on her notebooks and was fascinated with the eyes.  This theme and her inspiration of “beyond the grave” is a constant thread through her paintings and sculptures and has now made its way to the Dunny.  Comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.  Limited to 1 piece. $950

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
