Munn-day Morning Recap: Creatures from the deep
11:00 AM on 02.27.2012
Munn-day Morning Recap is back, and this time around, it's a monster mash! Plenty of creatures from parts unknown fill this installment of our Munny and Dunny recap feature, along with a few robots, ninjas and even a tiger. Really, can you ask for anything more? If you said "yes," please get your head checked because I politely disagree.
Well, what are you waiting for? Hit the jump to check them all out!
Garamon Dunny by Chauskoskis
As usual, we start with the Dunny featured in the header image. This time around, it's Chauskoskis' take on the kaiju characters Garamon and Pigimon for the Garamaniacal show at FOE in Northampton, Mass.

The City by Davey Bento
For a first custom Munny, Davey Bento's The City isn't a bad one by any means. Subtitled as "A Munny Noir," Davey has taken the monochromatic style of old 1920s and 1930s films and applied it to his Munny, adding in a sculpted city with trees and buildings on top of the Munny's head. It's very simple, yet it feels really elegant, too.
36th Teddytank Batallion by Dust
Ah, Dust knows the way to my heart. His newest custom is a battle-worn combat mech, and he's even added in a nice base that's worn and weathered, too. I love the armor plating details on this piece, and swapping out arms for weapons is a good way to get noticed by me. Hey, what can I say? I love me some fightin' robots.

Timber! by Hugh Rose
Hugh's latest custom is a take on the 2Tone Chuckboy Dunny, featuring a lumberjack who happens to be a bit clumsy. In fact, he's so clumsy, he chopped a few limbs off. But it's okay; he built replacements out of wood. Still, he's a beaver with wooden limbs ... is he ever tempted to gnaw on his leg?
Mitsurugi Munny by Mone86
From Italy, Mone86 sends us photos of two of his newest creations. First up, a custom Munny of Mitsurugi from the Soulcalibur series of fighting games. It's actually a custom that resembles Mitsurugi pretty well, and he's even got his hakama (albeit Munny-sized) and katana. For more work-in-progress photos, check out the matching Facebook album on Mone's page!
Iron Man Munny by Mone86
Mone86 has also made a customized Munny that doesn't have any fancy light-up pieces like some other customs I've seen, but it looks good none the less! More work-in-progress photos are viewable here.
Back to Daylight by Los Agge
Greece's Los Agge has passed along photos of his newest custom, Back to Daylight. He's turned the face of the Munny into a stylish face, positioning it in a blue sky above birds, clouds, flowering plants and more. And you can pick up this custom on Los Agge's shop right now, if you like it!
Arashi Clan Dunnys by Artmymind
New from Julia and Guillaume Lachambre's studio are these three little ninjas in shadow, red and blue colorways. Each one has a different weapon though they share the same basic design. Sadly, they're all sold out now, with only 10 of each having been made. One day, I'll own an Artmymind Dunny. One day ... *sigh*
Optimus Prime Dunny by Motorbot
If you're like me, and you like to forget about the Michael Bay Transformers films, then let Motorbot's newest custom 3-inch Dunny do just that. He's sculpted a pint-sized Optimus Prime that comes with a little pistol and lots of attitude. Better yet, you can pick this Dunny up at the Dead Bear Studios store for US$50 right now!

Totem by Squink!
New from Squink! comes Totem, a Dunny that looks like it came from some long-lost civilization. Squink!'s time sculpting his upcoming resin release made him experiment a bit on Totem, and the end result, I think is quite nice looking. Don't you agree?
Misfit Monsters by UNCLE Studio
Spotted on the Tenacious Toys blog were these new 3-inch Dunnys from UNCLE Studio, the Misfit Monsters. These guys are available right now at Tenacious Toys for US$70 each. Lots of detailing on these little dudes!
Snow Guardian and Rider by Bruscolino Art Toys
Also coming to us from Italy are the newest creations from Bruscolino Art Toys. First up, Bruscolino's Snow Guardian and Rider, taking a Labbit and Munny to create a rider and beast tandem! I like how the Rider has a nice spot on the back to rest in while he has hold of the reins.
Bibat by Bruscolino Art Toys
Finally, we have Bibat, Bruscolino's newest creation. Taking a custom Trikky as its base, Bibat is a big-eyed, but cute little winged fellow making use of Bruscolino's dripping style. It works very well on the wings, I might add!
