Fresh from the KR production lines, The Toy Chronicle are proud to get our hands on the first FIVE INCH Kidrobot Dunny! The honour & privilege of this inaugural Dunny release goes to Australian artist – Sekure D! We have been talking about this Sekure D release for several months now, and eagerly anticipating this new chapter for Kidrobot. The Toy Chronicle are huge fans of the three & eight inch Dunny, obviously, so when KR announced that there will be adding a new five inch series to their Designer Toy range we were kinda pumped & excited to see what would come out of this! So without further ado, lets take a look at the Codename Unknown Kidrobot Dunny by Sekure D…
First the packaging. We are loving the bright, colourful box that Codename Unknown is presented in – it resembles the art of Sekure D – which you would hope to see, right? The window at the front is a great feature, to give future customers a glimpse in to what they’re buying. We don’t recall another Dunny release with the open window to the box – a welcome addition. Clearly on the front of the box is the Five Inch Dunny #1 Series. Codename Unknown is going to proudly stand as the #1 in this Dunny 5″ series, rightly so too. We know of one other popular artist that will be part of this new Dunny 5″ series – Dolly Oblong – and it’ll be great to see who else Kidrobot have lined up.
First thing we do as we take Codename Unknown out of the packaging is give it a good sniff. Obviously. We love the smell of fresh vinyl, and Codename Unknown does NOT disappoint in this department. Yeah, we’re weirdos like that – who isn’t though?! Once our senses are back to a normal level, we check Codename Unknown on the QC (quality check). Again we are not disappointed. The lines are crisp. The print application is good. Sekure D has done a great job with the design, and KR have captured his design most excellently.
We caught up with Sekure D this morning, and he had some words for us which we’d like to share with you…
[quote cite=”Sekure D”]It’s really exciting being the first artist on the new 5” Dunny. If people have followed my work for a while they will know that this is something I have really been building towards and to finally have Kidrobot bring one of my designs to life is awesome. I am proud Kidrobot believed in what I do enough to have me kick off the new platform.[/quote]
Overall we are really happy with the first 5inch Dunny release from Kidrobot. Codename Unknown is going to sit honourable in many collections around the world – including ours. The Codename Unknown release date hasn’t been finalised as of posting this but it will drop next month (May 2016). Priced at $30/£21. Once we hear final dates, we’ll let you know.
