OK we've covered this figure previously, and i was less than impressed to be honest. Don't get me wrong Tris is one of the originators of the vinyl toy scenes success in the US with his work with Kidrobot and has been active with KR, Thunderdog and carious other companies for nearly 10 years. However at a time when Tris is doing some exciting things art wise this figure looks so lame and old in comparison. Like something he woulda made 5 years ago - though the iphone app it originated from is probably 4 years old.

The press release with this figure is also not helping me like it, describing it as a mass market figure for kids. Which definitely seems like it would appeal to them more than an emotionally stunted and extremely jaded collector of vinyl toys (thats me!).

A limited edition prototype of the B-BOT action figure will be released for the first time at this year's San Diego Comic-Con through the newly formed Plastic City Toys (A subsidiary of Super Rad Toys), with a wider release slated for Christmas 2011.

    Kidrobot are at the Museum Store Association convention and just fully revealed all 14 3" Andy Warhol Dunnys. (Only the line art of all 14 had previously been seen.) However, something else in that photo caught my eye.
