Munn-day Morning Recap: Losing my head
12:00 PM on 08.01.2011
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 ... turn on some lights and pretend it is.
This week's got a few new customs, including one with real food and one that's a bigger version of a much smaller Dunny. Which one, though? And is that rice actually edible? Hit the jump and check it all out!
Ghost in the Machine Dunny by Matt Anderson
Let's start with the custom from the header. Matt Anderson's Dunny is a limited, 10-piece custom run that'll be in various colors, but what's really cool about it? That light-up, clear head, of course! Matt had originally opened pre-orders for these for US$80 each, and I think they may be all sold out by now, but if you want to give it a shot, send Matt an e-mail and ask!

The Fracture by Squink!
Squink!'s got a few more custom Dunnys that he's just finished up, starting with The Fracture. This little one-eyed fellow kind of reminds me of the traditional image of a cyclops, complete with the one tooth sticking out from the bottom lip, but smaller. I love the texturing done over the eye and on the lip to make it seem like real skin, and the speckled look of the skin's paint job makes the Dunny look a bit worn and even leathery.
The Blessed Bark by Squink!
Also recently from Squink! is this little fellow of the two-eyed variety. The Blessed Bark's ears have been resculpted into larger, wooden stumps that actually appear to protrude from deep within the Dunny. Again, the level of detail on the wooden ears with the graining and discoloration is quite impressive for a 3" Dunny, but we've come to expect that from Squink!, haven't we?
Birdman Munny by Kas
It's not Thanksgiving yet, but Kas' Birdman Munny is kind of making me want some turkey. The colorful Birdman's most impressive feature is that each of the hundreds of feathers on his body has been individually sculpted by Kas. Check out his gallery for a whole shot of work-in-progress pictures and see all of the incredible work that went into this piece for yourself!
Octopus 3" and 8" Dunnys by Pause Designs
Finally, we have two interesting Octopus custom Dunnys from Pause Designs. Both are based on Pause's custom for the Most Wanted Series II blind-boxed Dunny set in the Kidrobot Forums, but there is one cool thing about these Dunnys. Do you see it? Nope, they're not wet: those water droplets are part of the actual custom. Sweet!
