Toei Bus' mascot gets an amazing custom vinyl treatment

Inspiration for custom vinyl can come from the smallest places sometimes. Like, for example, Minkuru, the mascot of the Toei Bus line run by Tokyo's government. Created by a fellow named Jon who's behind a small company called Rampage Toys, Minkuru is built from a Dunny body and a Munny head, along with a few other customizations, like the little wings on the back of the figure and the red antennae.

How's it stack up to the real mascot? Well, as you can see in the gallery below, Minkuru's got a different shape because he's designed to look both like a bus and a bug, but I'd say for what it's worth, this Munny/Dunny mash-up is not bad at all. What do you guys think?
