If you missed the announcement for Scott Wilkowski's Infected Bazaar exhibition at Clutter Gallery, then you might not know that it is almost all 3" and 5" Infected Dunny pieces! For those that couldn't make the opening, I wrote a little recap with lots of photos. Hope you all enjoy!

Wasn't able to be there in person but your pictures are great. I was waffling between picking up the red/yellow 5" and the black 5", ended up going with the black just cuz it looks perfectly haunting, but seeing your in-person pics of the red/yellow...it would have made for a much tougher decision if I saw those prior...that piece is beautiful.

On a related note, I was on their site on Saturday, waiting for the 2pm ET drop for the Preview group, knowing full well that I wasn't going to snag any one-offs (from my previous experiences with Clutter's website), but obviously wanted to give it a shot. So I had my tabs up in my browser, and was going to shoot for one of the one-off 3" that I wanted. I refresh my browser page at 1:45 pm or so to make sure things were loading (Clutter's servers have been unkind to me in the past) and at 1:45 pm all the 3" one-offs are already sold out. They just flipped from Not Available to Sold Out 15 minutes before the drop.

What's with that? Does that mean that they sold everything to people who reserved them before the official release? Regardless of what actually happened, what's the point of including those Dunnys in the show if you're just going to sell them before the publicly listed drop time and screw over people who were patiently waiting? I can't tell with Clutter when it's their servers that are the issue or when it just seems like some poorly coordinated bs. It always seems like flippers get what they were looking for when you see Scott's pieces go up on eBay at like a $200 markup.

It's frustrating that like every drop from Clutter is so inconsistent. Their gift wrapped show this year I bought a piece literally at the turn of the clock and I get an email two weeks later saying they oversold it and apparently I was either not first in line or they just decided that I was the unlucky duck that wasn't getting his, so they canceled the order and refunded my money.

Love the work they get, but hate their website and this inconsistency.

Hopped on clutters site undecided at around 1:40 , loved the clear white 5" so added to cart and boom sold out was able to check out since they use cart system . Good thing went on early otherwise would have been denied. Here's a pic of it I took from the show. Image
BTW Beacon NY is a great little town and Gallery has some amazing pieces

I'm struggling with pulling the trigger on these guys. I already have a couple of them, and would love a few more, but there is so much more unique stuff coming out this year. All the colors are super rad, and it would be great to have a 5" version, but still... I can't afford them all...

Well I guess it's super cool for some people that they went on sale 20 minutes before they should have.

Nope I was pretty upset with that too, it's one thing to miss out on a drop but to have it released early like that and never have a chance is frustrating.

To keep it positive though, it looked like a great show, and thanks for the write-up TrustPigs!

Yeah, sorry for my rant. Your piece is great and the photos are especially dope.

I was in the same boat as QTPie, I'm just such a sucker for this piece.

There have been a few more color ways added to the site. Including a glow in the dark 3 inch that I just snagged.

It's part of the game. Check early, check often, then check again exactly 30 mins afterward in case one gets released from someone's cart. I do it every time, and this is probably the first time in a year or so that it's paid off. Good things in life always go to those who are most diligent. Though if it makes you feel any better, $200 for a 5" dunny that isn't one-of-a-kind is not exactly a great deal. :lol:

Regardless of the price, I'm glad I got it. It really is nice.

IMO, I'd pay 200 bucks for one of those Dunnys however I probably wouldn't pay any more than that. The skeleton inside is ridiculously detailed. I paid $225 for a 9" Resin Skelve at DCON with significantly less detail in the sculpt and I also believe it was an addition of 30.

With that being said, if peeps are willing to pay $200 and these things and they continue to sell like hot cakes, then the perceived value is going to stay around that price.

I hope that makes sense. I haven't finished my morning coffee yet. :rolleyes:

I believe it was worthwhile. I wouldn't have paid that much for any other color combo, though. This edition is the best one I've seen, IMHO.
