Go to space with Otto Bjornik's latest, Gyaraga photo
Go to space with Otto Bjornik's latest, Gyaraga
by Brian Szabelski

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.

The Bots' Prickly Pencil Pusher is No. 1 in our hearts
by Brian Szabelski

Jenn and Tony Bot are back with their clay-coated creations, making another cuddly little critter. Their target this time? Frank Kozik's Heathrow, which they've turned into the Prickly Pencil Pusher. The little yellow fellow isn't just sporting rimmed glasses; his quills have also become erasers (note: not actual erasers) to fit with the No. 2 pencil theme of the entire piece.

Two of these little fellows are going up in the Urban Vinyl Daily store on Wednesday at noon Eastern (9 a.m. Pacific, 4 p.m. GMT). No price has been announced, but I'm sure you can pencil it into your budget.
