SNEAK PEEK: Munny / Labbit Death Dealer - Frank Frazetta x Frank Kozik x Kidrobot

Frank Frazetta's "Death Dealer" is possibly the most iconic and badass painting in the fantasy genre. Dating way back to 1973, it has achieved legendary status in the fantasy nerdling sphere... and now the Master of Labbits has endeavored to bring the iconic imagery to his Labbity world. Here you see a SNEAK PEEK of the Death Dealer Munny riding his Labbit steed. Soon to be revealed at the Kidrobot booth at Toy Fair in New York, this will ACTUALLY be a production piece from Kidrobot!

Follow their blog for more info on that release, I don't have details yet.

Labbit x Death Dealer crossover concept by Frank Kozik, brought to life in the capable digital hands of Klim Kozinevich and Bigshot Toyworks....  we have here a production piece so badass, even my wife wants one!

If you needed more convincing that Kidrobot is BACK in a big way, here it is. Mic drop....

Here's the original Frazetta painting:

BREAKING NEWS, DOC: Jason Freeny x Kidrobot x Bigshot Toyworks x Warner Brothers

Just when you though that the art toy scene has taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque, this piece is announced! Jason Freeny has been tapped by Kidrobot to utilize their Warner Brothers license to officially produce an Anatomical Wabbit! Brought to life under the design direction of Bigshot Toyworks, this piece promises to be a glorious hunk of tasty carrot-chompin' plastic! Will be debuted at Toy Fair in NY this weekend. I'll see if I can get you some actual pics. Stay tuned, doc!

So stoked. For a behind-the-scenes look at how Jason Freeny developed this piece (yes, sculpted by hand, before the concept was turned over to Bigshot), check out his photo gallery on Facebook.
