Earlier this week, we brought you news that Kidrobot was teasing a series of new figures as its SDCC exclusives. Today, we have word from Kidrobot themselves about what exactly each of those silhouettes will be. Folks were making guesses all over the Kidrobot boards ... and most of them were right.
So what's been announced? The line up can be found after the jump! And remember that all of these will be at Kidrobot's SDCC booth, #4529!
Preview night: Futurama Hypnotoad (pre-release, US$39.95, review coming in the future hopefully) and Homer Simpson Buddha figure (US$50, limited to 500 pieces, SDCC exclusive, comes with Homer holding prayer beads and a pretzel). Here's hoping the Hypnotoad turns out to be awesome.
Thursday, July 12: 7-inch Cyborg Labbit Excelsior Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$75, limited to 300 pieces). As you might guess, Chuckboy is the artist behind this one, and it'll probably look like a cross between his popular 2Tone Dunny and a Labbit. Chuckboy is also doing a signing from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Friday, July 13: Mahākāla Dunny Prosperity Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$100, limited to 300 pieces). Andrew Bell is the artist behind this Dunny, taking the protector deity Mahākāla from Indian and Nepalese culture, the four-armed Dunny (yes, you can see the extra arms!) comes with a trident accessory, extra set of articulated arms, and removable Dunny skull belt. Andrew is also doing a signing from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Can't wait to see this in color.
Saturday, July 14: Skullslinger Tuco Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$100, limited to 300 pieces). The most obvious one of the bunch is a new piece from Huck Gee, featuring his Skullslinger character. Standing 11 inches tall, it's clearly the biggest piece at the show, and considering it's also a Huck piece ... it's the one most likely not to last the day.
Sunday, July 15: Exclusive handprinted T-shirts (SDCC exclusive, US$38, limited to 78 shirts). What is this? T-shirts? Yes, taking a break on the last day of the convention from vinyl, Kidrobot is tapping into its fashion side with some limited-edition handprinted heather grey men's T-shirts (ranging in size from small to XXL). Each one is being handmade by Ryan the Wheelbarrow from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
