Diamond Bar, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2012 -- Kidrobot, one of the premiere collectible toy designers in the world, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a spectacular limited-edition re-release of an original piece.
Kidrobot is resurrecting the Gold King Dunny 8-inch figure by artist Tristan Eaton in limited quantities, offering a special "thank you" to fans who have supported the company for the past decade.
The Gold King Dunny is a sought-after piece that was released in the very first Dunny Series of collectible figurines in 2004, a popular line that still continues today. As one of the original pieces that helped establish Kidrobot's supremacy in art and collectibles, the majestic gold figure is the perfect way to celebrate the company's ten illustrious years in business.
Dunny is a curved bunny with a smooth face, offering high-profile artists a blank canvas that can be repainted and reinterpreted with their own unique style. Eaton's royal take on the figure is 8 inches of sleek metallic gold vinyl, leaving Dunny's form unobstructed and pure. It boasts a golden crown on one ear and carries a scepter topped with black stone.
