There are many interpretations of “The Apocalypse” . You know my preferred scenario, but the artists collaborating for Kidrobot’s newest Dunny gang, the Apocalypse Dunny Series, are representing every known scenario in a cute little dunny form.
If you don’t know much about Dunny‘s*, they’re a collectible plastic figurine, designed by a myriad of artists for Kidrobot. Street artists, illustrators and fine artists alike get in on making this single plastic bunny shaped form, their own. I collect them (when I can get them) and so do millions of others. *of course, “dunny” means toilet in Australia, but that is not the case here.
The Apocalypse Dunny Series has come out just in time for everyone’s little freak-out session, due to happen this December.
Sold out at my (usually) preferred retailer, but find them, overpriced and price gouged, on Ebay by vultures who wait for release day, then buy them all up and sell them at 3-4 times their retail price. Go Capitalism!
I used to collect Dunny’s a few years ago and still have about 50, but I found this pretty disturbing – The moment they came out on sale today from an approved distributor, they were sold out before I could click on the email link and already they are on sale on Ebay for up to 4 times what they cost in the blind box, for a blind box of 16, over 222$ – this is not only unfair to the public and everyday collector but its unethical. I know that’s life and shit but really? Maybe if the retail stores or Kidrobot wouldn’t make it into a big “release day” things and work people up so much, Dunny collecting would not have become such a black market joke.
