La Muerte Negro
When darkness descends...
On Naoya 13 there are many whispered tales of people disappearing in the night. Sometimes, they are tales of revolt, of dissidents and rival political parties. Sometimes they are tales of justice in the underground: of pit fighting organizers, of gang lords, or of corrupt police. Sometimes they are just tales indeed... People may never know the answers they seek but when darkness descends, when evil things happen and they leave not a trace, they blame La Muerte Negro. Officially, La Muerte Negro does not exist. The Taurenos royal family denies their existence. There is no La Muerte Negro. But the people know better. They were told the tales as children, to keep their lives straight. The tales evolving as they grew older, no longer just myth. Everybody knows someone that knew somebody that disappeared. The people know what darkness patrols the city when the sun sets... the people know... 10 figures in this set, $800 per figure. Due to the nature of the materials, some differences should be expected in each figure. Limit one figure per customer. This set will be distributed to customers on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to reserve your figure and make payment arrangements.
Dunny 2010 Release Parties!
This Thursday, August 19th!
Huck will be stopping by both of our local 2010 Dunny Release Parties this Thrusday... both Neon Monster and Kidrobot SF. Neon Monster's party goes from 4:30-7PM on Thursday, August 19th. For full details, see this blog post. Don’t forget: anyone who stops by will also get to vote in our Dunny 2010 Case contest, and help pick the grand prize winner! And now, in no particular order: 5 Things You’ll Find at Neon Monster’s Dunny 2010 Trading Party:
- Sket One’s Sweet Relish Dunny. Kidrobot has provided this rare 3-inch condiment complement to Sket’s Mustard and Sketchup Dunnys to retailers having trading parties. The Sweet Relish Dunny is a free gift to people who buy a full case of Dunny 2010. One per customer. First come, first served. [Photo via MPH Flickr]
- Huck Gee. The man behind some of the most sought-after Dunnys in history will stop by sometime during the duration of our party, so stick around and maybe you’ll pull his figure.
- Frank Kozik. Frank has TWO Dunnys in the 2010 series: a standard and a chase. He’ll put in an appearance sometime during the party, so bring your lucky Labbit and see what you can pull.
- Easy parking. Though walkers may find their legs and glutes get a good workout on the Noe Valley hills, street parking is plentiful.
- Beer. ‘Nuff said.
