JPK Locodonta Munny

It's vinyl Inception: JPK gets meta by customizing his 8" production Dunny, Locodonta. Using the Dunny as a canvas rather than a character, Jon-Paul Kaiser depicts a faceoff between a samurai and a Locodonta warrior. JPK does a great job of emulating a Japanese style of painting while accenting the piece with nice watercolor tones.

Poor Kane lies on the operating table in Munny form, with the alien poking his head out, ready to eat your...

Carson Catlin Munny

Carson Catlin has teamed up with street art gallery, Kultured Chameleon, to launch his new style of customs.

Check out the orange one, which retains chunks of the Munny's original surface, which is a really cool effect. The others have very cool patterns and new color schemes. They're...

Custom McStomp by JPK

JPK's newest custom is ready to tear up some kaiju. Taking cues from Pacific Rim, Rose & Sky is a customized Penelope McStompsalot, originally by Huck Gee. Decked out with a weathered sword and shield, this robot looks like it's fought its share of alternate-dimension-monsters.
