I thought that maybe too.

Who knows. It doesn't have the usual JLed shading, but there are some bits that make me think it could be. I dunno.

Anyway, I think it's a good concept, and I await to see more. I just hope that Touma one isn't a ridiculous chase (of course it's going to be). It's not particularly ground-breaking, but it looks alreet.

I am definitely going to aim at getting that Dunny set by Saner. The new Dunny series looks nice but I am still contemplating on it because I have yet need to see the rest of the production before purchasing any, especially because of price increase. Hopefully there will be a discount coupon code of some sort. Anyways, I am mainly looking forward to the coming of S6.

I think the rollin' stock minis have potential....but at $9.95 a box, and only 5 of the figures shown, I'll wait and see......

The price increase sucks, but I think KR is trying in some sick strange way to restore Dunnys to an exclusive thing like they used to be. Maybe to turn away average buyers that come in to the store just to see what the store is? Maybe to make them a more limited run, but still make a lot of money? It's hard to explain, so sorry if this doesn't make sense, but I'm sure there's some good reason for it because KR does care about it's customers. That KRNY Employee thread that happened a while back actually did affect things in the company.

Seriously, what is going on with the price hike? 3"ers went from $6.95 to $8.95? :doubt: And what the heck... $75 is now the norm for 8" Dunnys??? I actually was interested in the Kronk 8" and he seems like a cool guy but $75 was not going to happen.

Well until someone sells me one of their MANY doubles a month later for $5 looks like I'll be passing on KR releases again

imo, they look okay, but as long as kidrobot keeps raising prices, i refuse to buy anything new.

seems like theyre mass producing everything while raising prices to get as much money as they can.

Meh, I dig the Touma dunny but I don't plan on looking to complete the set. At least this month they tried to justify the $75 price tag by throwing in a 3"er. Other than that the rest of the releases are nothing special. Lets hope this summer KR steps it up, eh?

The 8" is awesome. Definitely gonna try to pick one up but I have a feeling this is gonna be like the HII dunny all over again.

But 9 bucks for a dunny series is way too much especially when they just raised the prices on the UK series.... :doubt:

Honestly, I don't think a boardmember boycott would make much headway. Honestly, unless you got the entire boards and then a thousand more KR might realize so, but the 8inchers have proven to sell out and will continue to sell out because they're more limited. I think that if you manage to get enough people here and outside of the boards yo might have a chance but it would take one helluva long petition :doubt:

I'm digging the endangered, but $9? What happened to $7? Damn it. They're charging it, because I'm going to pay it. Damn it! They're on to me.

I really like the walrus and touma, and a little bit that crazy cow.
I just wish that the price increase is due to a QC improvement, a donation to some organization (as mentioned before), and/or to a more limited series. But maybe kidrobot decided to make 8"er more limited runs, and 3"er more popular and massively produced.
And I really doubt a boycott will make any difference at all. People will keep buying.
