VTSS Toys just announced a new character for The Famous Chunkies series by Alex Solis. Following the tease of the famous golden droid from a familiar movie (see HERE) estimated to drop June 2016, his loyal companion make a debut. We guess R2-D2 had too much fast food on the rebel cantina. Meet the Chunky Astromech Droid.
It has a real functional LED light and a click button on the back.
Stands 14cm tall made in poly stone, Every Astromech Droid has a COA card which is signed and numbered by artist. Who would’ve thought the little droid would look so good with a few extra pounds? Well, the force is strong with this one. If you’re not familiar with Alex’s Chunkies concept let us shed you a light;
Famous Chunkies” CONCEPT–BY Alex Solis
“While watching a Ninja Turtles cartoon with my daughter, we kept making fun of them and asking how they are so fast and in shape when their diet consists mainly of pizza. I felt like it was sending the wrong message to kids, and I noticed a lot of others cartoons did the same thing. At first I started the project with the intention of just creating that one illustration, but it was too much fun to stop there!
I realized it was a good way to raise awareness about unhealthy eating, especially with young kids. It catches their attention quickly and it’s easy to make that connection immediately. After creating it, the series has been featured in various prominent articles, newspapers, magazines, blogs etc worldwide, I wanted people to be able to have the whole series in near future.”
