Red Hot Robot and Zia Record Exchange Host Dunny Release Parties this Thursday
Kidrobot collectors go crazy whenever the hip toy maker releases a fresh wave of designer Dunnies decorated by renowned artists at toy boutiques around the country.
For proof of this phenomenon, stop by either of the two release parties being held this Thursday night at Red Hot Robot and the Zia Record Exchange on Indian School Road, as both stores will unveil the latest series of Dunnies for public consumption.
As is the case with each year's batch, a few surprises will be in store for collectors. Read on for a look at what's in this year's series, as well as the exclusive figure that will be available to a lucky few.

Folks who turn out to Thursday's release parties will probably buy more than a couple figures, especially since this year's series will feature 18 designs from 15 different artists (including such veteran Dunny designers as Le Merde, Aya Kakeda, Dirty Donny, and Elphonso Lam).
Release parties for the 2011 Dunny series will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Red Hot Robot, 6042 North 16th Street, and Zia Record Exchange, 1940 West Indian School Road.
