Calling all Be@rbrick/Avengers fans! Medicom Toy and The Avengers franchise have collaborated for a Be@rbricks Avengers Assemble Set, which includes 100% version of the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain American. They will be released on June 20, 2012.
Every year a gusher of petro-packed pieces comes together in that explosive moment known as a Dunny Series, and 2012 lives up to the legend.
Kidrobot presents Dunny Series 2012, featuring 20 designs by 14 artists.
Seasoned Dunny masters jump in the mix with fresh blood, creating characters that push Dunny into new worlds with new sculpts, new uses of the Dunny platform, new treatments, and new plans. A more colorful mix than you would find in the Mos Eisley Cantina, each figure is its own species – an ambassador to the mind of its creator. If you are one of the lucky few to see them all together, you will find a window into what whimsy and wickedness lies under the creative rocks found in the far away corners of the Dunny galaxy.
DS2012 features the emissaries from the hands of Andrew Bell, Attaboy, Scribe, Jeremiah Ketner, Jon-Paul Kaiser, Junko Mizuno, Kronk, MAD, Mauro Gatti, Sergio Mancini, Nakanari, Pac23, Tara McPherson, and Triclops Studio. While supplies last and at select locations, get your hands on an exclusive Dunny by SUCKLORD with the purchase of a case pack. Set to hit the shelves June 21, each figure retails for $9.95 US and can be found at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide. You’re welcome.
Kidrobot is lucky to call some stellar cities home. With each unique urban culture, they inspire us, energize us, make us laugh and sometimes make us a bit queasy (take a stroll down Grand street in NYC on a hot summer day). After 10 years of loving urban living, we had to pay homage in the only way we know how: vinyl.
Introducing the Kidrobot City ‘Bots Mini’s. Each 3-inch vinyl figure highlights the city where it is exclusively sold by showcasing the characteristics that the city and its citizens are famous for. Five Kidrobot retail stores have their own special ‘Bot: San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and London. On the scene June 21st, each figure retails for $11.95 (£9.60 UK). Take a summer trip and check them out… these ‘Bots and their cities will not disappoint.
Kidrobot ‘Bots Mini New York Edition is available exclusively at KRNY.

Futurama’s Wooden Bender 6-inch vinyl figure is here and officially downgraded! Complete with removable red woodpecker and “technology-free” stumpy head and body, Wooden Bender is 6 inches tall and designed with the Kidrobot aesthetic twist, making this primitive vinyl ‘bot feisty and termite-free.
Wooden Bender wages his war on technology for $50 US, beginning June 7 at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide.
In opening the new store inside the Skytree Town Solamachi shopping complex in Tokyo, boutique toy brand MEDICOM TOY have looked to their roots for inspiration. Dubbed the Japan Series, or Wa Series in Japanese, these BE@RBRICKS are a modern reinterpretation of the traditional characters and figures from Japanese culture. Perhaps it is their take on a unique, yet modern souvenir for international guests who visit the newly built Skytree tower. The Manekineko BE@RBRICK we reported on earlier is also part of this collection, and it is accompanied by Shishimai (Lion Dance), Kabuki, Buriki Kingyo (Toy Goldfish), and Daruma. Both the Shishimai and Buriki Kingyo figures will be on offer in 100% and 400% sizes, while the Kabuki BE@RBRICK is only available in 100% size, and Daruma comes in 1000% size. All of the toys will be available at the newly opened MEDICOM TOY store from Tuesday, May 22.

Totem loves the modern world. With an over-inflated sense of awesomeness and a love for dicey online casino games and XXX reading material, this FatCap consumes technology like bandwidth grows on trees.
Ancient Totem, meet 21st Century sin.
The Totem FatCap by Kronk is 6-inches of vinyl symbolism, enshrining the evils of vanity, lust, and greed on the iconic FatCap platform. Here to serve as a symbolic reminder to avoid leading self-celebrating lives, this totem’s old natural tones have transformed into a new electric vinyl palette – purple, turquoise, orange and pink. Beginning May 10, only 900 of this misguided Totem FatCap are available for$75 at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide.
