Welcome back to another edition of Munn-day Morning Recap! It's been a while since we've featured some of the cool customs out there, in part because it's been a bit hectic lately. Thankfully, though, customs don't just disappear overnight, so they're still here. Some of them are pretty well detailed, a well, ranging between "Awwwwwwwwww" and "Whoa" on the Things I Said Scale.
Well, what are you waiting for? Hit the jump to check them all out!
Clunk by Ume Toys
As usual, we go to the custom featured in the header, and this week, it's Ume Toys' Clunk, a custom Foomi turned into a robot. And I like robots, of course. I mean, look at those giant side-fin-things. Robot sideburns, maybe? It looks perhaps top heavy and a pain to put on a shelf due to the size, but I'd buy it anyways. And Rich may be looking for a new home for his piece: e-mail him to see if it's still available.
Mega Pacquiao by JFury
JFury's latest custom Munny is an 18-inch Mega Munny of Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, featuring some sculpted gloves. Not much sculpting beyond that, but the paint job looks very clean. He was on sale for US$800, but has already found a buyer. Check out the gallery for a few other shots!
Jungle Totem Dunny by Reactor88
For something a bit smaller, there's Reactor88's Jungle Totem Dunny. A version of his usual Totem Dunnys, the difference here is this Dunny is in a shade of green instead of black and blue, along with some of the red accents that we're accustomed to seeing from Reactor88. Sadly, this little guy sold out because he accidentally went up on his store early.
Candy Rabbit by Philippe "Barratatouille" Barra
From France comes a new custom from Philippe "Barratatouille" Barra, Candy Rabbit. The 4-inch Munny features a little fleece bunny costume, metal meat cleaver and severed head. He also seems to be a new artist to the designer ranks, so please keep an eye out for his work in the future!
Mr. Death Inside by Roberto Gionta
Our friend Roberto Gionta has a new Munny he's just finished, featuring Mr. Death popping out of ... well, Roberto! Or rather, I guess he's wearing a Roberto costume, maybe, and he's got a life-like mask? In any case, it's Mr. Death undercover, though why Death needs to be undercover is perhaps another question to answer ...
Acid Flow Munny by TheGiven
From South Africa, we have the graffiti-styled Acid Flow Munny of TheGiven. Seven inches tall, this Munny is cool for one thing in particular: TheGiven has sculpted the graffiti-styled arrows on top of the surface of the Munny, giving them a clear visual pop other than the darker green color he used. This piece has a new home, and some collector is a lucky fellow to have it!
Custom Skullhead Dunny by Grimsheep
There aren't many Skullhead Dunnys out there, and even fewer customs from artists because they're so rare. However, Grimsheep has taken the task of customizing one in his usual style, which reminds me a bit of a sugar skull at times. But maybe since this is a Skullhead Dunny, it fits that much nicer.

Sora by Quan Vu
It's been a while since we've heard from Quan Vu, but he's recently Tweeted a new custom in his store. Sora is an 8-inch Munny who is apparently a sky dragon, painted in bright colors and a whole lot of sky blue. She is signed and hand-numbered and is for sale for US$200 if you'd like to pick her up.
Bonsai Munny by Shez
Shez's newest custom is based off of one of his favorites, a cherry blossom-themed Munny he recently sold. Instead, he's created a bonsai-themed Munny, featuring the tree both painted on to the body and head of the Munny, as well as sculpted out of the side of the Munny's head. It's a cool looking piece the way it seems to blend from a flatter 2-D style to a full 3-D style without being jarring.
Worms by Bruscolino
Bruscolino has sent us photos of some more customs he's been working on, and one of them is a series of Dunnys named the Worms. As you can tell, each has had its body stretched a bit and comes with Bruscolino's trademark big eyes and "gooey" style. I also like how they're all each a bit different, including one who's got three eyes instead of two.
CyberNinja and Apocaghast by Don P
Two recent commissions completed by Don P made, done in his Apocalypse style, kind of remind me a bit of my G.I. Joes growing up. That's especially the case for CyberNinja, who looks a bit like a different version of Snake Eyes. Apocaghast kind of looks like a former bomber pilot who's been through hell and back, wearing a tinted flight mask.

General Loh by Jason Chalkner
Game developer 7sizty contacted Jason Chalkner and two other artists recently to make custom Munnys of characters from their upcoming Xbox 360 game Kung Fu Strike, and Jason did General Loh. The main butt-kicker in the game, Jason says this Munny debuted recently at Anime Matsuri in Houston, and I think it turned out well. There's kind of an oil painting look to him up close and
Ash Munny by Jeff Beck
Evil Dead fans, Jeff Beck has finished up a Munny of protagonist Ash, complete with torn-up clothing and chainsaw replacing his hand. The 8-inch Munny has a more overstated, cartoonish features, especially in the face, but he's still got plenty of detail to look over. Like a few other pieces featured, this is a custom that was commissioned, so some lucky collector has this on their shelf!
Fizzul, Friend of the Mushrooms by TheLozBoz
TheLozBoz is more known for her plush, but she can make a mean custom designer vinyl figure, too! Her first 3-inch Dunny is the fellow you see above, Fizzul is a little pink fellow who looks d'awwwwwwwwwwwwwww adorable. The sculpting detail on this Dunny is amazing, and I think the paint job looks great as well.
Oh, and her better half is featured as the artist of the next Dunny ...
The Dilemma — Young Tengu by Squink!
Finally, Squink! taps my love of all things Japanese with his new tengu-shaped Dunny. That huge nose looks awesome on the Dunny, and it's got a nice grayscale look to it. I might have to ask Mr. Squink! if he's taking commissions, because I would love a custom Tengu Dunny right about now ...
