Welcome back to another edition of Munn-day Morning Recap, and if you haven't guessed, today's theme is things that are adorable. There's a few this week worth noting, for sure, along with time travel, deadly traps, a Wookie, ninjas ... and a chicken? Yes, indeed.
Well, what are you waiting for? Hit the jump and let's go!
Revenge of the Wolves by Otto Bjornik and his little sister
As always, we start with the custom featured in the header, from Otto Bjornik and his little sister. A Little Red Riding Hood-themed set, there's an adorable bunny Red Riding Hood 3-inch Dunny, alongside a bigger 8-inch Big Bad Wolf Dunny and two 3-inch Wolf Kid Dunnys. You can also see that both the Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf Dunnys come dressed in real fabric clothing, which can be removed if you'd like to reveal some more of the paintwork. But really ... why would you? They look plenty awesome enough as is!
Falkor by A Little Stranger
A Little Stranger (a.k.a. Holly Stanway) has been working on something alongside her usual Cavey releases. Look familiar? It's Falkor from The Neverending Story, in Munny form! I have to say, the face sculpting and the eyes look awesome on this, and if you're in Cardiff, Wales, you'll be able to see this as part of the upcoming Dragons show at SHO Gallery.
Comic Stripped: Venom by VISEone
VISEone has a new Comic Stripped Munny out there, and it is of Marvel's Venom! Like usual, the Munny features comic book pages wrapped around a Munny body, with additional sculpting that includes a nice Venom-style set of teeth on the head.
Venom is on the VISEone shop for €80.
Just in Time by Zukaty
For the Just in Time show, Zukaty's made a custom called ... Just in Time. It's a remarkable piece, though, meant to emulate the Delorean Time Machine heading back through time itself, complete with flaming tire trails. The rear end of the Delorean can be seen passing through the Dunny's head itself, and the effect that creates is awfully cool. What's more, Zukaty is taking commissions for a set number of these 8-inch Dunnys to be made; just e-mail him for more info.
Zucron the Head Hunter by Zukaty
Also from Zukaty is his Dragons piece, Zucron the Head Hutter, a custom Kracka turned into a spear-wielding reptile. For some more photos of this custom, including a lot of work-in-progress, be sure to check out Zukaty's Flickr page set up especially for this custom! He's also teasing that a new Poison Dunny set is on the way, and it'll be a larger Dunny he's using, too!
Focus Karate Kid by Tony Gil
The paintjob on this Munny is pretty simple, but it's the sculpting job here that's really worth noting. Tony has resculpted the Munny arms and legs (in a manner inspired by The Karate Kid) to create a cool-looking ninja. If you'd like to pick one up, you can find a few left in his store for US$110.

Chicken Munny by Cache
Graffiti artist Cache is known for his chicken murals ... so for They Came From The Streets 2, why not make a chicken Munny? This fellow is fully feathered out, with additional work done on the red comb, and the mouth part of the Munny's head turned into a painted-on beak. There's even a tail on the backside, too, as no detail's been left out!
Ice Cream and Beer? by Betso
New from Betso is another little green, one-eyed fellow with a beer in one hand and ice cream in the other. The drool on his chin seems to make it look like he's a bit of a glutton. Maybe he's asking you if it's ok to have a little bit of both before dinner?
The Magician by davidkraig
From davidkraig comes a 4-inch Munny/3-inch Dunny duo for a Custom Toy Union trade. David says he had a hard time letting this fellow go, with his canvas hat and curling mustache, and I can't blame him. It's a pretty neat combination, especially how the rabbit Dunny fits inside the hat ... even if the rabbit looks a bit evil.
Also from davidkraig is a new 4-inch Munny of Chewbacca, looking a bit angry. I don't know what anyone did to piss the Wookie off ... but they might regret it later. Especially with that bowcaster in hand, ready to fire.
It's a Trap by DCAY
This Munny/Dunny combo by DCAY features a poor helpless Dunny in the grasp of a monstrous Venus fly trap Munny. The vines are, of course, sculpted on, while the base is wooden with a flocked "grass" floor to it. Just remember: even if a Munny looks safe, it could hold a hungry creature inside!

Phil by Travis Lykins
Travis is one-half of the crew who runs Urban Vinyl Daily, and he's sent us a picture of his latest custom, a 3-inch Dunny named Phil. Made with Sculpty and acrylic paints, Phil looks pretty basic, but there's some nice details on his face. He looks a bit like a walking chunk of lava rock, if you ask me! Phil can be purchased for US$50 by e-mailing Travis.
King of the Board customs by Task One
Finally, we have a new King of the Boards over in Kidrobot's part of the world! Task One is the next artist to get the title, and he's taken his Outburst style to six different figures, including a Dunny with LED illumination! I like that one the best, to be honest. You can head on over to the Kidrobot blog (link below) to enter and win one of these customs, as there's different ways to win each one.
