Josh Mayhem just sent over some images of his custom dunny for the "Memories are Made of These" show @ Munky King, called "G.I. Jonez". 

"Since the theme for this show is based on childhood memories the first, and obvious thing that popped into my head was to create a piece paying homage to my favorite toy growing up - G.I. Joes. In fact I cherished my G.I. Joes so much that I still have about 200 of them on display right along side my designer toys. It is from this collection that you'll find weapons and accessories adorned on nearly every custom toy I do. G.I. Jonez is decorated with 100% G.I. Joe weapons and accessories from both the 1/16th and 4 inch versions. I really enjoyed creating this piece because my action figures have always been a huge inspiration for my custom toy art. I can think of no better way of showing my respect to the art of both action figures and designer toys by combining a Munny, one of the most popular platform toys, and G.I. Joes, one of the most popular action figures."- Mayhem

Stay tuned for more details on the Memories are Made of These Custom Show, taking place at Munky King.
