Next week is a busy week for Kidrobot fans: there's not one, but three new releases to check out. I'm hoping none of them will be a bust, but I won't speculate, as that's a bit of a sin. And if you think that I'm dropping a few hints in that last sentence ... well, you deserve a medal.
What are you waiting for? Hit the jump to check all the info out!

First, there's the release of Kronk's 8 Deadly Sins Labbit blind-boxed series on Thursday, July 26. With eight different designs, each encompassing a different sin, the 2.5-inch Labbits let you figure out which sin looks best on your shelf. Pricing will be US$9.95 (£7.90, €9.20) per blind box and they'll be available at kidrobot.com, all Kidrobot stores and select retailers worldwide.
Ever wanted to own one of Frank Kozik's busts, but couldn't find the money and/or space for something so big? Then you might like the blind-boxed Goon Squad set also set to come out on Thursday, July 26. Also US$9.95 (£7.90, €9.20) per blind box and available at kidrobot.com, all Kidrobot stores and select retailers worldwide, the series features Kozik's stylings on five historic figures in five different colors (blue, magenta, white, black and yellow). In addition to a 4-inch version of Kozik's Gipper bust, we have the Pyong Yang Player (Kim Jong-Il), DJ Aya-Holla (Ayatollah Khomeini), Lil' Ilych (Vladimir Lenin) and The Havana Slammer (Fidel Castro).
Frank will also be at Kidrobot New York for a signing on June 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Finally, to celebrate the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics, Kidrobot is releasing a new 3-inch 'Bot, titled Faster, Higher, Stronger. Taking its name from the official Olympics motto, the 'Bot comes in a track suit, with a gold medal, dumbbell and "juice" to "keep him hydrated." Only 2,012 of these have been made, and they'll be on sale for US$14.95 (£12, €13.90) at kidrobot.com, all Kidrobot stores and select retailers worldwide.
