Is it Friday, yet? It’s getting closer, that much we do know. As Kidrobot ramp up their reveals of the new Exquisite Corpse Dunny Series with Red Mutuca! We were treated to the ANUBIS Dunny design by Grimsheep yesterday. Check it out today!
As it happens, this design almost never came to be. I had my submissions ready to go but at the last minute was inspired to do one last one. Whereas the others were more literal in regards to the the theme, this one was a little different. I find Egyptian mythology fascinating, and while I knew Anubis was the god of death, it wasn’t until I did a little research that I found he is also the god of embalming. Seeing as he is actually responsible for exquisite corpses, I thought he would be fitting. Plus, Egyptian gods look cool!Grimsheep, January 2020
The new Exquisite Corpse series from Kidrobot is going to be hands-on too. Each new 3inch Dunny will have the ability to be disassembled and reassembled with other Dunny in the series. Swap their heads, arms, legs, bodies etc to your hearts content.
And we found out last week that the Dunny in this series will be held together by MAGNETS! As shown in the video shared by Exquisite Corpse artist, RunDMB, which you can check out below…

I think I’m OK to show this, the #ExquisiteCorpse #dunny in action! I originally asked @roboticindustries to help me make a prototype of a splittable dunny a couple of years ago because I liked an old #kidrobot series called “Critter Splitters” so much. I also figured it could give new life to dupe dunnys. My #redmutuca pals @igorventura and @sergiomancini figured it could work as production, they talked to KR, and here we are… actual dunnys you can take apart however you like. You can probably even use them as fridge magnets 😂 (I haven’t tried that, so no complaining if it doesn’t work). Massive thanks to @kidrobot for making it happen 🙏and to my fellow Red Mutuca members for their amazing designs, can’t wait until they’re all released.
As we mentioned in our previous posts on the Exquisite Corpse Dunny Series (read HERE), the guys behind Red Mutuca Studios who are behind the designs for this new Kidrobot Dunny series, are a legit bunch of serious talent. An art toy collective of like-minded artists and designers from around the globe. From Igor Ventura, Sergio Mancini to Quiccs, RunDMB, MAp-MAp and Chauskoskis plus several more talented folks!
