7 Robots of the Apocalypse custom Dunny series by Rusted Halo

In 2013, after the world as we know it has ended, these 7 rusted and weathered robots came back online and quickly tooke the credit for the destruction of the planet. 
The latest Tenacious Toys exclusive artist collaboration is this 7-piece series of customs by Rusted Halo. The 7 Robots of the Apocalypse are each one of a kind, hand-crafted custom 3" Dunnys. They're bagged and tagged and each comes with a metal wind-up key at that fits in the back. At only $35 each, you're really going to want to click though to our Rusted Halo page and buy one fast. One already sold. We don't expect them to be in our shop long!
