Otto Bjornik's new Gyaraga Dunnys aren't 100 percent new designs: two of the three main designs are based off of his larger Odyssey 1969 custom Dunnys. Joining Neil A (in the white) and A Lien (in black) is a new red astronaut named Luna, with the three of them making up the majority of the 3-inch customs.

However, even they aren't alone: Otto's including not one, but two chases for each color of Gyaraga Dunnys. All three colors will have a dead astronaut as one of the chases, with the other being a one-off special character: Krang (black), Jeremy (white) and Laika (red).

A total of 10 characters will be released for the red, black and white colors, meaning eight of each 10 will be either Neil A, A Lien or Luna, depending on the color you choose. Oh, and did we mention they're blind-boxed? Because they will be when Otto releases them in his store on Thursday, June 26, at 11 a.m. Eastern for US$110 (plus shipping) each.

MaloApril makes a Muerta into a wedding cake topper

MaloApril's latest Dunny custom was revealed to be a wedding cake topper in the way of a Muerta Bride. It looks like a groom is on the way, but for now, this is giving me (awesome) flashbacks of LittleBigPlanet's Frida's Wedd...

Custom Delights: JFury's Ninja Pitbull

JFury has a new custom Dunny in his shop, a furious little ninja pitbull. He hasn't done any real sculptwork on the figure, instead wrapping the design around the Dunny's surface, but he still does resemble a little pitbull. You might not be able to tell from the karate gi and polesword that he's wielding, though! You can pick it up from JFury's shop for US$80.

Otto Bjornik, Kidrobot's Mayari arrives at retail photo
Otto Bjornik, Kidrobot's Mayari arrives at retail
by Brian Szabelski

Otto Bjornik's latest work has arrived today,a  3-inch Dunny he did in collaboration with Kidrobot called Mayari. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Mayari keeps a royal theme we've seen in a lot of Otto's work, as well as his simple black-and-white style, but there's also a red version of Mayari if you're looking for a little more color. If you want both versions, though, you'll have to do a bit of extra work: the black version is being sold and selling out already at designer toy retailers (myplasticheart has a few left), while the red version will be only at Kidrobot's stores and their online shop.

As you might remember, though, Kidrobot upped their prices earlier this week, and the 3-inch Mayari will cost you US$14.99. I love Otto's work, but US$15 for a 3-inch figure is a pretty steep asking price and I might have to sit this one out. What say you, Tomopop readers?

Tomopop LinkUP: Remakeover

Sometimes our favorite characters are too good to fall off into obscurity over the years. Often they'll get a new outfit and and just continue their adventures like Sideshow's upcoming 1/6 scale Catwoman. Sometimes they trans...
