Most of the year, all the Grim Reaper wants is souls, but on All Hallows’ Eve, he turns his focus to morsels of a sweeter variety – chocolate!
Don’t Fear the Reaper Bot’s Mini is a 3-inch grinning goblin, with head and body deco’d with glow-in-the-dark paint. Dressed in black from head to toe, he waits outside your house with a bloody sickle and toilet paper roll in-hand, ready to leave his sinister mark. It is best to give him candy immediately.
So wickedly good, we had to keep him in short supply – only 1000 available, they hit shelves October 11just in time for Halloween. Don’t Fear the Reaper retails for $14.95 US (£12 UK, €13.90 EU) exclusively at Kidrobot stores and kidrobot.com.
As part of the Kidrobot X anniversary celebration, Kidrobot New York will be serving up the super limited Silver King 8-inch Dunny by Tristan Eaton. This KRNY exclusive anniversary release will be very high in demand and extra low in supply, limited to 300 worldwide, only $50 each. In order to level the playing field, KRNY will be busting out a very limited daily allotment for all 10 days and drawing random names for a chance to buy one and only one Silver King. All names entered daily will be in the running all throughout the entire Kidrobot X exhibition. The daily winners will be contacted once and only once via email. Winners will have 24 hours and only 24 hours to respond and confirm your toy. All winners (with ID) must be present at KRNY to purchase the Silver King before Wednesday, October 24.
Oh, Schnuchoms! With his adorable vinyl exterior, Nibbler masquerades as the cute unintelligent pet of Leela, captain of the Planet Express ship in Matt Groening’s celebrated television series, Futurama. Standing 6-inches tall and dressed in a dashing cape and smelly diaper, you’d never suspect Nibbler is really an undercover, highly intelligent being on a mission to protect the planet Earth from evil Brainspawn! Paired with a tray of kitty litter to catch his powerful poo (Nibblonian excrement consists of super-dense dark matter, suitable for use as starship fuel), Nibbler is coming to save our small planet onSeptember 20, powering a few spacecraft along the way. Landing at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers for $50 US (£40.10 UK, €46.50 EU).
Professor Teslastein jaggedly cuts, bending back the metal flesh. Feverishly he works to create new vehicles of destruction for his nefarious exploits. Two models take shape from the scraps: in one he plants a vine to give it strength and in the other he gives a piece of himself. The Frankendunnys come alive. He leaves his laboratory, happy with his success, not noticing a third figure has risen from the decay. Concealed in the shadows, its eyes are glowing, gears are turning, and electric current is pulsing with life.

Death for Hire.
Ruthless and rugged, Skullslinger may wear a sheriff’s star, but he’s more outlaw than judge. Shading his hollow eyes under a broad rimmed hat, this winged vinyl rogue stands 11 inches tall, ready to draw with vultures circling overhead, the wind billowing his coat and the setting sun bouncing off his spikes and spurs. Skullslinger Blondie looks more bad than good, and is anything but ugly.
Limited to 700 worldwide.
Dunny-sattvas take wrathful form when a gentler approach is not effective.
Seemingly demonic, the Mahākāla deity is a stern protector. With his trident, he fights the poisons that blind – pride, lust, greed, and ignorance – and destroys those that hinder the knowledge of enlightenment. He has four arms, three eyes, and one fiery crown. Some compare him to death; others hail him as a glorious guard. All know him to be fierce.
The Mahākāla character ever present in ceremonies throughout the Himalayan region inspires the 8-inch Mahākāla Dunny by Andrew Bell. The Protection Edition is limited to 900 pieces and rules with a trident accessory, extra set of articulated arms, and removable Dunny skull belt. Begin worshipping August 2 for$100 US (£79.90 UK, €92.70 EU) at kidrobot.com, Kidrobot stores, and specialty retailers worldwide.
