Tenacious Toys Exclusive Aqua Turquoise SuperKranky from Sket One x Superplastic

   This Valentine's Day I have but a simple request; one that can literally be achieved with the mere push of a digitized button. I want Superplastic to follow me on social media. It may sound like a petty request, but petty is in no way beneath me. I write about their products, maybe even helping sell one or two, and I championed their arrival as a platform that will allow a larger amount of artists to realize their dream of their own production toy. But for some reason we just haven't clicked. I know I'm not the easiest guy in the world to be friends with as I'm not good at maintaining social obligations (in my defense we are living in the golden age of television and there are a lot of can't miss shows). But if you were trapped in a corner being picked on by an unmerciful bully, I would be there to stick up for you. I would apply a tourniquet made from my own pants leg if you were bleeding uncontrollably. I would come over and feed your cats (and clean their litter boxes) if you suddenly had to go out of town. So this Valentine's Day, Superplastic, let's build a friendship that will stand the test of time/apocalyptic world ending scenarios. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

  While I sit with anticipation staring at my social media feeds, let's take a moment to appreciate this Tenacious Toys exclusive SuperKranky from Sket One.  This version celebrates the color Aqua Turquoise and if you thought that a limited drop of only 200 figures was the best thing about this you would be sadly mistaken.  You can of course get one of these toys for only $90 and most likely be perfectly content.  Or you could go completely all in for $150 and get a nearly complete outfit to match your toy!  In addition to the figure you'll get a hat, a t-shirt, and a bandana. Just imagine the Instagram pictures you'll be able to get. The Deluxe edition featuring all those extras is limited to only 100 sets and available for preorder for exactly one week (February 7-13) begining at noon eastern time.  If you just want that 8 inch homage to street art it will be on sale by itself at the same time this Friday.  Either way you go they can only be had from

Used Honey Resin Dunny Preorder from Sket One

    Did you know that honey never spoils?  They've found it in the tombs of ancient Egyptians and you could totally still dip your chicken nuggets in and eat it.  In a way it would be kinda cool to eat something that's as old as a Pharoah and not die immediately from butt worms, but on the other hand the mere thought of it would cause me to make myself sick the moment it hits my stomach.  And why would someone be buried with a jar of honey anyway? Was he really bad in life and hoping to bribe Anubis when he weighs his heart against the feather?

Anubis:  "Dude your heart is way too heav...hey is that a jar of honey?  I haven't had honey in, like, forever!!!   They used to stock it in the underworld commissary, then there was the problem with the bears and ugh, it was just such a mess."

Dead Guy: **slides jar over to Anubis"

Anubis:  "Oh, snap! I guess my scales need to be recalibrated cause you are headed right to the good place, my man. Enjoy your afterlife and whatnot."

***Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise" blasts over the loudspeakers***

    Sket -One doesn't want you to have to start digging up dead bodies looking for something to put on your toast, so he is releasing this eight inch Used Honey Dunny for a special 24 hour preorder.  This resin figure saved a little bit of its goodness for you and will be available starting today (Friday May 3rd) at 9am pacific time.  Anyone who has ever seen one of Sket's pieces in person can tell you that this thing will be so flawless that you will probably stare at it until you get hungry and have to run out to the grocery store.  They're magic like that.  Satisfy your need to eat and your need to collect at

Used Sketty 8 Inch Dunny from Sket-One


       Peanut butter is my jam (see what I did there) but I really only like the chunky version.  I've got this weird texture issue with food that's too soft, so those extra bits of peanuts hidden throughout are there to save me from utter disgust.  I also prefer lumpy mashed potatoes, french fries that are well done on the outside, and bread that has a crust that could undo the best dental work.  Please don't send me any food though, because I have another weird issue about people trying to feed me.  This is getting way too personal.

    I won't hold it against Sket-One that his latest Dunny is lacking the crunchy bits I love, but only because this toy is completely not edible.  And to top it all off someone has been mighty liberal in their use of this lunch time staple, as most of it's contents are long gone.  That's ok though, because like I said before you won't be making sandwiches with this toy; you'll only be making other collectors jealous at your awesome score.  

    Each eight inch figure comes with a mini jar of peanut butter, a slice of bread, and a knife with a little bit of the good stuff still attached to the end.  You can preorder yourself one starting tomorrow ( Friday, September 1st) at 12am eastern time for a period of 24 hours.  Once that day is up, the window for purchase will be closed and the manufacturing will commence.  These are only available from

3DRetro is Throwing a Release Party for The 8 Inch Sketracha Dunny from Sket One x Kidrobot

    People love this Sriracha stuff.  The other day while walking through Target I noticed that they even had Sriracha branded boxer shorts, which could send mixed messages to anyone that sees you wearing them.  They could assume that what you got going on is so hot you just have to advertise it.  Or they could assume that what you got going on is akin to the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster and they should steer clear of the fallout.  You should be very aware of who your audience is before you wear those.

    A less ambiguous method of showing your love for the spicy condiment is with the new 8 inch Sketracha Dunny from Sket One and Kidrobot.  It's the safer alternative for me, as my digestive system is a delicate flower.  There's a release party happening at 3DRetro this Friday where you can pick up the toy, have it signed by the artist, and dine at some fancy food trucks they'll have parked outside.  All the details you need are in the picture, you just have to clear off your calendar and go.

Sket One's "Sketracha" 3 Inch Dunny from Kidrobot Available Now

    I have no idea what Sriracha tastes like because I have a fluffy little lamb for a stomach.  I've been trying to be more food adventurous, but that is way less Indiana Jones and more not skipping over as many aisles in the grocery store as I used to.  For me that's a big step, though a very cautious one, cause just one wrong move and I'm doubled over begging sweet death to take me.  I suppose that's a bit dramatic.  

    Sket-One is the king of condiment Dunnys and he has expanded his range with this gastorintestinal heathen.  Kidrobot just released this 3 inches at the end of last week and from what I understand they are tough to come by.  But I believe in you way more than I believe in my ability to digest this stuff without complication.  Oh, and there's a 2 in 5 chance you'll get a nearly-empty chase variant.

You Want Dunnys? Check Out All of These Available for Preorder Right Now

    My head is literally ready to explode with all of the amazing Dunnys that Kidrobot is coming out with this year.  If this is what the future of this company looks like then we are in for many years of toys I desperately need.  You've got a healthy mixture of well known vinyl artists, some that are completely new to the vinyl world, and fan favorite designs that made the jump from 3 inch figures to 8 inch.  Let's get started so you can see where your money is going this year.  

    Sket-One self-produced a pretty killer version of this Sketratcha Dunny some time back and now it's getting a proper vinyl release as a 3 inch figure.  There's gonna be a chase version as well, which I'm not gonna spoil for you in case you haven't seen it.  $14.99 will get you one.  

    I can't say enough good things about doubleparlour.  Admittedly, I was a bit late to their appreciation party, but I'm trying to make up for lost time.  I'm in love with everything they do and this Dunny is no exception.  This 3 inch toy is on my must have list and at only $14.99, I won't feel guilty about it either.  

    Ever wondered what a certain famous mouse looked like when he went home, removed his kid friendly exterior, and exposed what was really lurking underneath?  Yeah, me neither, but I have no problem believing that behind that smile lies a creature that feasts on equal parts cash and children's souls.  A balanced diet is important after all.  Ron English and his sinister friend are making the jump from the Apocalypse blind box series to a full 8 inch production figure.  For $74.99 you can have him stare at you as you plan your next trip to the happiest place on earth.

    And people think that no one listens to their pleas?  Well, when your demands aren't ridiculous, this can be the result.  Scott Tolleson's Lotus Dragon was next to impossible to get as part of the Evolved Dunny series, so thankfully its 8 inch counterpart will be much simpler to obtain.  All you need is $99.99 and a bit of patience and you could have this delivered to your door in the Fall.  Go ahead and add this to my must have list.   

    This one has a special place in my heart, because I was able to not only hold the prototype in my hand, but take a picture of it that circulated pretty quickly around the internet.  I felt like a proud father.  Not only did Junko Mizuno's design make the jump from 3 inch to 8 inch, but they added some elements to it as well.  The thing is stunning in person and I've been waiting patiently to be able to get one since I first saw it in February.  

       This is what I like to see.  Someone working their butt of painting figure after figure, honing their craft, and then getting rewarded with their own production toy.  It's happened before but I feel it's going to happen a lot more now that the stable of artists Kidrobot is pulling from is pretty much endless.  Maybe I'll get my own Dunny?  I gotta make a phone call.

     Wuzone seems inspired by everyone's favorite pathologically lying puppet, but put enough of a spin on it to make it feel fresh.  I know what you're thinking, you're thinking: "How will I possibly afford all this?"  For one, don't worry, just stop paying those annoying student loans.  Secondly, this dude is priced at only $59.99.  It's like a throwback price!!!

    Sweet mother of plastic what is this you have bestowed upon me?  J*RYU has just changed everything you thought a Dunny could be.  Not only is it not character driven, but the design, and sculpting, and the detail.  I think I just got the vapors.  And to top it all off it pretty much demands to be the centerpiece of your collection as it stands a whopping 20 inches high.  Forget buying a new shelf, you're gonna need an alter for this.  Now she ain't cheap at $449.99, but I can guarantee you it's worth every penny you have to steal.  

    Each one of these, and The 13 Dunny series from Brandt Peters that I've previously written about, are all available for preorder right now from your favorite designer toy stores.  No more sweating on release day, no more pounding the refresh key on your laptop, or frantically driving from store to store, or pacts with dark forces trying to secure the one's you need.  This is a glorious time to be a collector.

Mini "Our Father" Resin Sculpture from Sket-One

    I love Star Wars.  Those original three films basically sum up everything that was good about being a kid.  The last three films taught me about disappointment and how to harness my murderous rage into something more productive. The seventh film comes out this year and I'm holding out hope that it doesn't make me want to stab an usher at the theater.  

   I've got so much Star Wars stuff that I can't even display it properly.  What it really needs is a focal point, something that can elevate every piece to the status it deserves.  What it needs is the statue you see above.  This sculpture from Sket-One is the perfect centerpiece for any shrine dedicated to light sabers and chicks in gold bikinis.  Standing a foot tall and made of resin, this is something your grandchildren will beat each other senseless to inherit.  It would be worth it to fake your own death just to witness the carnage.  Pick one up at

Hazardous Taste Dunny from Sket-One x Huck Gee

    Anyone that knows me knows that I love orange Vitamin Water.  Or, I suppose I "loved" it until they recently changed the sweetener in it and made it taste disgusting.  Why do companies do that?  I couldn't have been the only person buying them by the case.  Sprite and 7up did it too in an effort to appease the health nuts and now both of those taste like drinking carbonated air freshener.  Their should be legislation that prevents stuff like this from happening.  We can call it the Lucas Law, in honor of the man who decided Star Wars was too brilliant and that he should add some cgi nonsense to it years later because being a billionaire is boring work unless you can ruin everything that people love.  Vitamin Water, you are the computer animated Jabba the Hut of the beverage world.  

    Ok, so this Dunny is called Hazardous Taste, but his contents look delicious, like that Ecto Cooler Hi-C put out years ago.  Couldn't be that bad for you, right?  Huck Gee and Sket-One have teamed up again for yet another impressive Dunny release.  And the clock has already started ticking on your ability to get one, because the window of opportunity to order closes when the clock strikes midnight tonight.  Only the amount ordered will be produced so you need to be a man (or woman) of action and get yourself in on the deal.

Dripple Series 1 Platform Toy from Sket-One and Mighty Jaxx

    I enjoy a good platform toy.  I like the fact that it's one basic shape and it's up the artist to really bring it to life while making it unique.  Mighty Jaxx has teamed up with Sket One to produce their first ever platform toy, Dripple.  There are two things about this figure that I think make it successful.  The first is a huge area in which to put designs.  They're not limited by little stubby arms or legs or really harsh angles, so the art really has a chance to be unrestrained.  The second is that the arms are all interchangeable and they will be making more accessories to go along with the figures, so you can mix and match them however you want.  Not only does that give you options for display, but customizers will have more choices when making their own creations.  

    Now, they need your help to get this series into production.  They are raising the funds right now over at and it works the same way as Kickstarter.  There are different levels of rewards for your contribution, including some hand made figures, complete sets, and even a three foot tall Dripple.  They've actually just hit their main goal a few hours ago, but they still need help in hitting those stretch goals and unlocking more cool stuff.

"Our Father" Darth Vader Resin Sculpture from Sket One

    Guess what?  I just spent your tax return for you.  I apologize in advance to all the people you swore you'd pay back when you got your "taxes did", but this is more important.  This massive Darth Vader resin is the work of Sket-One, who has just upped the game when it comes to religious-inspired art.  And he wasn't shy about it either, cause this sucker stands a little over two feet tall and weighs 10 pounds.  This may be the greatest thing you will ever own that can double as an anti-burglary weapon.  Now, before you lose your mind past the point of no return, this Lord of the Sith ain't cheap.  For this massive piece it will set you back $999.  Also keep in mind that Sket estimates that this will cost about $200 just to ship but he will make accommodations for you to pick it up in person if you wanna go to California.  It could be like an awesome pilgrimage!  Only 25 of these behemoths were produced and will go on sale this Friday, April 18th.  For those of us that already blew our tax returns on wrestling tickets and trips to the vet, he will also be offering prints and prayer candles (oh, I'm gonna need one of those my friends) through  I better see some serious shrines created by anyone that buys this.  You might wanna go ahead and empty a room of your house just so you can do it justice.

Bad Juju Brands at Designer Con

    Normally, I'm an avoider of anything that might contain bad juju.  Monkey paws, voodoo, Miley Cyrus albums; the list is pretty extensive.  It's served me well as I have yet to be possessed by any evil entities, other than that time I ate at Golden Corral's buffet and it felt like were trying to escape me sideways.  I don't care how affordable that food is, don't eat there unless you have a priest and a port-a-potty next to you at all times.  

    Bad Juju Brands is out to change how I feel about those two little words that invoke caution of supernatural proportions.  Like everyone else in the world but me, they'll be at Designer Con this weekend with a ton of exclusive stuff that you're gonna want.  Let me tell you about two of my favorites.

    Numero Uno:  The Orange Dripple resin figure from Sket One.  You know resin is looking good when you wonder what it tastes like, cause that sucker looks like candy.  Now I don't recommend you go around liking your toys because for one you'll look like a crazy person, and for two they might be toxic.  But hey, who am I to stop you from having a good time?  They made 100 of these little dudes strictly for admiring with your eyes and not your mouth.

    Numero Dos:  The Clear Blue Calaverita by The Beast Brothers.  Anytime I see anything in clear blue from now until the end of my days all I will be able to think about is Breaking Bad.  It's infected my blood.  Don't try and smoke this skull though for the same reasons I already listed above.  Only 30 of them were made so be quick about it if you want one.  

Get these and more at booth #101.
