Munn-day Morning Recap returns with a whole load of new customs! Sure, some of our writers are suffering from Wrestlemania-induced sleepiness, but that doesn't mean the news (or the customs) stop flooding our inbox! And yes, it's been a while, so that means we get to travel through the backlog to check out some cool pieces.
Home Sweet Home by Shez
So let's start, as always, with the custom featured in the header. We haven't posted something by Shez in a while, but his newest custom Munny is pretty cool! Home Sweet Home is a custom Munny featuring a little bird perched atop a nest in a tree. But that's not all: according to Shez, this custom was inspired by the little blue bird that sits on top of Huck Gee's Samurai Hicks character. The little M&B heart carved into the trunk, too, is the initials of Shez and his wife. Awesome stuff, and we'll have to look for more from Shez in the future!
Cyber-ized Dunnys by Muffinman
Muffinman has made two customized Dunnys for Kidrobot boardie lfarnc, taking a Chuckboy 2Tone Dunny and a regular Dunny, then transforming them into mechs. Considering how much I like robots, I've got to say I love the finished look and I wish I was the lucky owner of these two, especially the one on the left that kind of reminds me of some tokusatsu mech.
Wedding Dunny set by Lunabee
Popping up on her Flickr, Lunabee has just completed a new set of Dunnys commissioned by a couple here in the U.S. for their wedding. The details are even based on their actual dress and tuxedo that they'll be wearing for the wedding. I think the end result turned out pretty well, don't you? Congrats to whoever the lucky couple is, as well!
Lambert by Ume Toys
Another new custom from Ume Toys, Lambert is a Kracka who also happens to be a dragon that loves his match. Don't try to take it from him, apparently because he'll kick your butt! Rich has made this custom for the upcoming Dragons show at the SHO Gallery in Cardiff, Wales, U.K. on Aug. 18. We'll probably see a few more customs from the show in the next few months, so stay tuned!
Spiki Lee and PandoMo by Nakanari
Nakanari's been busy lately with customs, it seems, because he's turned out quite a few! To begin with, there's his Bruce Lee-inspired Spiki Lee and PandoMo customs. That PandoMo looks pretty darn cool and is my favorite of the two, perhaps because I've seen quite a few Bruce Lee-inspired custom figures in the past already with that Game of Death outfit.

Ninja Spiki, Cyber Spiki, Ninja Skitty and Skitty Dunnys by Nakanari
Also from Nakanari are a set of 3-inch Dunnys based on his Spiki and Skitty characters. About what you'd expect from Nakanari, but still some nice detailing.

Custom Dunny by Deeten
Deeten has a new custom up on his Tumblr page that looks quite a bit like it was inspired by Takashi Murakami's art style. It's an old piece, according to Deeten, but looks pretty cool!
Gum Gum by Bruscolino
A new custom from Bruscolino with his "gooey" style, Gum Gum kind of lives up to its name, looking like a bunch of pink bubble gum that's come to life. I'll let you chew over whether you like this little fellow or not while I stick to just making bad puns and finishing this feature!
Most Wanted Series 3 Dunny by Grimsheep
Grimsheep's custom Dunny for the upcoming Most Wanted Series 3 Dunny set doesn't have a name, but we do have photos of what it'll look like! It's interesting, feeling like a combination between a sugar skull from Dia de Los Muertos, but also with plenty of geisha and eastern touches to it, too.
The customs of Rojo Bermelo's MUNNY INVASION 3.0 (featured Munny by Rade Radeus)
Monterrey, Mexico's Rojo Bermelo recently had itself a big custom Munny show, and we could in fact do an entire series of posts of the 41 custom Munnys that made the cut.
However, someone else has already done that for us. Head over to the Kidrobot Blog and/or Rojo Bermelo's Facebook page for a big ol' gallery of them all and let us know if you find a favorite!
