Munn-day Morning Recap: Independence is overrated

Munn-day Morning Recap is back for yet another week, ready to show off the cool Munnys and Dunnys you may or may not have seen in the past few weeks. As always, these are customs that weren't highlighted in individual posts on Tomopop, but were still worth bringing to your attention. And if it's not morning where you are ... then I'm waking you up with firecrackers.

This week's got a few new customs, including slaved robots and aliens who want to hunt you down and capture you. Like I said in the header, independence is overrated. Hit the jump to check it out and hear about it's backstory!

Iron Slave Transport Dunny and Raffy by Rohby

Let's start with the custom from the header. It's a commission from Rohby with some nice robotic touches. These two have been turned into slaves, forced to transport goods across the Siberian wastes for the military. Interesting concept, to say the least, and it makes you think if Rohby has a point, that these mech are just giant iron slaves.

Bumblebee Munny (and MADL) by southerndrawl

Here's a new custom from southerndrawl, which has an Iron Man look to it in some respects. Or like Iron Man meets a bumblebee. But I gotta say, as a robot fan, love it. And what's more, part of the proceeds from the sale of the Bumblebee Munny was given to the National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association. Charity stuff rocks!

Predator Munny by Epic Customs

Here's a custom 8" Predator Munny from Epic Customs. Loving the detail on the head there. And those jaws ... yikes! He's one ugly son of a b****!

BIW and BIWRAO Dunny by Atsushi Shiota

Finally, from all the way in the middle of the American heartland in a place called Kansas, we have Atsushi Shiota's Dunnys inspired by Luke Chueh's Black in White (reviewed). It's a nice homage to a classic piece, but don't worry: no money was made off these Dunnys because they're staying in Atsushi's personal collection. Check out more photos here!
