Wonkabot & Umpa Dunpa by Ian Ziobrowski

One of the most amazing custom Mascots I have ever seen. Just speechless! Ian Ziobrowski (Nugglife) did a hell of a job on this set.
Ian Ziobrowski:
Here's my new commission "Wonkabot & Umpa Dunpa", which are custom 7 inch Kidrobot Mascot, and 3 inch Dunny.  With the inspiration provided by the client, we came up with a concept that expresses the evil side of Willy Wonka.  Growing up hes always creeped me out, with his fluctuating personalities.  Everything about him from the ongoing trickery to the weird stares of evil, it would always make me wonder what kind of person he really was. After going back an forth, and really studying his personality, I finally came up with a sketch. Here's my Evil Wonkabot, next time your at the candy store just remember those little sweet bags of evil can be mind blowing!  

Just epic!

Arts Unknown Update: Doktor A Bella

We recently blogged about the Arts Unknown release including some prototypes of Doktor A's Bella,  well now we have some pics of the finished colorways and well as you can see they look fantastic.

Standing at 8” tall and with a retail of $100, each piece has a run of 350 pieces, including a one in six chase colorway and a members-only colorway.

I'm a huge Doktor A fan so to see a finished colorway and to see it done so well is exciting, I just hope the level of detail and quality can be kept up across the whole release. And for people wondering: the bloody colorway of Bella is not just plain white - half the parts are matte white and the other half are gloss white.

Venom Tequila custom by Fuller

Art Wars at Kidrobot NY *EXCLUSIVE PICS*

Kidrobot NY will be hosting ART WARS: A New Hope on October 11th, 2012 from 6:00 - 10:00 PM.  (For those keeping track, that is the first night of New York Comic Con.)

Scott Kinnebrew and Jason Chalker are serving up an evening of Star Wars themed customs and 2D art.  The Tenacious Toys Blogging Crew had to shut down the trash compactors on the detention level and pay a pretty penny to a certain Mandalorian but we managed to get exclusive shots of a few of the customs AND the information that there will be TRADING CARDS!
