Good morning, Tomopop, and welcome to another edition of Munn-day Morning Recap! And if it's not morning where you are, the you must live on the dark side of the moon. I hear it's quite cold there, so be sure to bundle up!
This week, we have an old man and his dog, an ice cold voodoo man, creatures from outer space and a connoisseur of sugary confections on a wooden tongue depressor. All of this and more can be yours if you stop waiting already and hit the jump to check them all out!
Mr. Death Inside #2 Munny by RX
As always, we start with the custom featured in the header. Does the title make more sense now? Our friend in Italy RX has sent us pictures of his newest work, a new Mr. Death Inside Munny turning the protagonist from Me and Mr. Death into a mech, piloted by a tiny Mr. Death himself! Very cool stuff, especially how the head opens up to reveal a full cockpit with Mr. Death at the controls.
Rupert and Ronnie by Roar With Lukas
From Vienna, Roar With Lukas has created Rupert and Ronnie, an old-man Munny with his Dunny/Labbit hybrid dog. It's a cool little piece with a nice little brown palette, and I like how the Dunny/Labbit looks so seamless! For more photos, feel free to check out Lukas' Facebook page!
Tr!ckster by Bill Hewitt
In celebration of the second annual Tr!ckster Convention happening this summer in San Diego, at the same time as San Diego Comic Con, Bill Hewitt has made the Tr!ckster mascot using ... what else, a Trikky from Kidrobot! I'd have to say, with that top hat and monocle, he's the second-best mascot I know. You can probably guess number one. *wink*
Goodnight Panda Dunnys by Stu Witter
One or two MMRs ago, we featured Stu Witter's Goodnight Panda and mentioned there would be more news. There was: he made 10 unique Goodnight Panda customs, each with a slight tweak to the face or body or paint to make it different, and set them free in his store (where they all promptly sold out). As I think I mentioned before, they remind me of those John Woo action flicks with Chow Yun Fat in them. Just need a few tiny doves to be perfect ...
Iron Dunny by Mone86
As far as detail goes, Mone86's 8-inch Iron Man-inspired Dunny might be one of the best this week. Painted with a nice silvery sheen, Mone has etched into the Dunny's surface some nice lines representing the armor's segments while wrapping them around the Dunny, too. It was made for a friend of Mone's who happens to be an Iron Man fan as well. Check out more photos of the Dunny as a work-in-progress here!
Frozen Juju by JFury
Looking for a voodoo theme to your Foomi? Then JFury has what you're looking for with his bluesy Frozen Juju! Painted in an icy color scheme, this 7-inch Foomi is a witch doctor with a skull-cracking hammer in hand. This piece was sold to a lucky buyer for US$225, hopefully without a curse of any sort!
Ice Cream's Monster by Bruscolino
Bruscolino's sent along some photos of his Munnyworld entries, and the one that really caught my eye was Ice Cream's Monster. Why? Well, with his usual gooey style, Bruscolino's ice-cream-eating creature looks like he's slobbering all over his popsicle with a wild-eyed stare. ICE CREAM MADNESS!!!!
Spaced Invader by Menace Inc. Studios (Jeff Beck)
For the Toy Invaderz show opening in Chicago this Saturday, Jeff Beck has put together another Invader-themed piece, appropriately enough. This one is an 8-inch Munny that, as you might have guessed, lights up. The illuminated piece can be seen in out gallery in all its bluish, Space Invaders-themed glory.
Dunny by JALOS
JALOS has a few new custom Dunnys up on his Flickr page, each one with a bright, vibrant color pattern. The pink one you see here? Actually my favorite of the bunch, in part because of that intense stare. Looks like its peering into my soul ...
The Feather (top) and The Leaf (bottom) by f+
Finally, we have two new customs to share from f+ that aren't commissions! Two 3-inch Dunnys, The Feather and The Leaf are available, complete with their little weapons and high levels of detail. Each one is a one-off figure and both are available in the f+ shop for US$125 right now. I am having to fight off urges to buy The Leaf this very instant.
[If there are any custom Dunnys or Munnys you spot and want to see featured in this feature, feel free to e-mail us at tips (at) tomopop (dot) com!]
