3) Gal Gadot not knocking on my door to offer sexual favors in exchange for a viewing of my Neth Creatures collection (it's a really solid collection. Not sure what her problem is).

I'm not Gal Gadot but I'd like to take you up on that offer.

Haha, I kid I kid. Just very jealous that you have any at all as I got into this scene when I was in high school so didn't have the funds to buy Neth Creatures back then unfortunately.

PLEASE CANCEL THIS SERIES!
This feels like we are watching a good friend about to drive drunk!
SOMEONE TAKE THE KEYS!!
STOP AND THINK KR!
This series weakens all the other Dunnys!

I buy a case of Dunny every series, but I will be passing on buying cases this year due to this travesty.
I fear Dunny is about to become as pointless as Funko Pop!
What a gross sad day

Also:
Marvel Labbits were a total FAIL
They couldn't give those series away!
Why put Dunny through this kind of humiliation?
What a gross sad day


To me this is Funko...

I wish the dunny wasent licensed

So was the Art of War series. That ended up being a complete flop, even though some of the pieces were amazing, KR pretty much dumped off sealed cases for less than the marvel labbits and a lot of those dump offs included the Case Exclusive.

that series and apocalypse had some of my fav dunny designs. I think the turn off for people w art of war was they had too many of the same figure in a series. If you weren't feeling the drone or the knight figs, seeing that many of the same figs were the same thing made folks think twice. That's how I felt with the simpsons series with all the duff beer guys.

I think it was that they made way too many of them. When the series were limited, and there really were only 200 or so super-chases, everyone would try to get their hands on them. I don't know how many art of war cases they ended up having overall, but I do remember them being dumped on Black Friday for pennies.

For me the art of war Dunny's were too much war and not enough art. It was the final nail in the coffin for me buying a couple of cases a series. However the Dunny show had me deciding to return to buying a case only to see the Batman Dunnys and start to reconsider.

All in all if I were to say two thing's to Kidrobot right now it would be "Don't theme Dunny's and work to get as many big
and upcoming artists as possible."

Its why everyone I know collects. They seriously don't care about the artist as long as the design is good. I would take Hammo over Huck any day now that I have a few Huck designs already on display. You get people buying Dunny's by having them buy the Dunny of an artist they like and they discover other good artists in the process and get hooked the way I did.

I agree with all that. Never heard of Hammo before, just looked him up, damn that dudes art is awesome.

I'm pretty excited for this since I love Batman, but yeah I would preferred it to be a mini fig series instead. The designs are not that bad tho.

I'm on the boards almost everyday and I rarely post but I feel like this is too important not to speak up about.

I completely agree with everyone, this is a travesty. Dunny is what got me into collecting 10 years ago and I'm proud to display everything I have because of how jaw-dropping the art was and being exposed to new amazing artists coming up in the scene. But I would be so embarrassed bringing anyone into my "toy room" having this on display. I mean the whole reason I even collect these is because it's an original work of art and they don't look like cheap, massively produced toys. If I wanted something too look like it came from Toys R Us then I would buy from Toys R Us. I really thought the Dunny series were gonna be revitalized this year with dope limited artist pieces but this for sure is a depressing day for collectors who have loved what KR stood for for so long. I'm still hopeful things will get back on track and I'm really excited for the DTA and Arcane series, but come on KR I feel like it was just unnecessary to use the Dunny platform for this.

I feel like it must be an attempt to compete with Funko(who I loath). All I see in stores and comic shops is Duckling Funko crap. I went to 3 shops listed on Kidrobots site for Vegas to buy some Kidrobot stuff, they had nothing(and this was after the disappointment that the actual Kidrobot store in Vegas closed) All the shops had were walls and walls of Funko crap.

I won't be buying any of these Dunnys and I am very sad to see them. I like Batman, but as everyone has said, I buy Kidrobot toys for the art. Not the pop culture.
