Kidrobot recently announced that Tara McPherson's Black Heart of Gold 20-Inch Dunny will be released on May 24 at its own stores, website, and select retailers. Available in Blue and Pink iterations, the $400 vinyl figures "feature beautiful matte color gradients from feet to face, metallic ink accents, and the lines and shapes that tattoo Taraâs world," explains the Kidrobot blog post. Each version is available in a limited run of just 250 pieces.
Come May 24, fans will not only have a chance to purchase the Dunny, but also meet Tara and get it signed at Kidrobot's flagship SoHo retail store in New York. Her signing will take place from 6-7pm, but the store will make the Dunny available starting at 10am -- and everyone who purchases one will be entered in a raffle to win one of two McPherson prints (seen at the very bottom of this post): âGeorgeâs Halloween Portraitâ and âLaughing Through The Chaos Of It All.â Entrants need not be present for the signing, as winners will be notified via email.

Kidrobot have taken the commendable approach of actually filling in their fans on what's happening with the business and what to expect in the near future. The Boulder location is indeed taking a bow.

A member of the Kidrobot forums posted an image today with a "retail space available" sticker on the store's window, to which a company rep responded with a sad face emoticon.
