Ryan Roberts and his Apes!

We have covered Ryan Roberts amazing toy photography in the past, and he doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. It looks like he was inspired by the recent film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes with his latest creation.

He totally started monkeying around with his toys, and brought all manner of Hominoidea out to play. Caesar!

Maurice was our favorite!

Collection Showcase: Andrew Bell

Are you excited for the release of Andrew Bell’s 20 inch Dunny “Orange Drop” tomorrow?

Well, we are stoked, and to fuel our love for Andrew even more, we asked him to show off some of his personal collection. You read correctly, we have our first artist in the Collection Showcase! It is great to see what our beloved artists collect when they aren’t making brilliant art and designing amazing toys!

Now to showcase some of Andrew’s collection and have him tell you a bit about it.

A custom hand drawn Tree Dweller sits front and center on my main shelves.

Some of my favorite Dunnys in a rainbow order. This brings a splash of color between a black shelf and a greyscale shelf.

I don’t have a lot of room, so toys get swapped out now and then.

The jewel of my collection, AJ Fosik on the wall.

I’m a huge fan of black, white and grey..

I like to create little areas of matching colors, it can be two or three toys, or toys and books, or a whole shelf devoted to one color.

My kitchen is not immune from art and toys…

These guys all live above my kitchen cabinet against an orange accent wall, simultaneously featuring in and blending in to the room.

It took me a few years to find the perfect chair, then a few hours of sawing, sanding and painting, but I think it was worth it!

Most of my personal toys are in my studio collection, I prefer to surround myself with other peoples’ work when I’m at home.

A few plush friends live on my bedroom bookshelf.

Sometimes it’s a theme rather than a color that ties a shelf together, this is part of my skull shelf.

I love natural materials, these get prime real estate and space to breathe.

Such an amazing collection.  Andrew, thank you for taking the time to show us!

Don’t forget, Andrew Bell’s Orange Drop 20inch Dunny releases on July 3rd!

Collection Showcase: Fastfingers21

Are you excited for the release of Dunny Art of war tomorrow?

Well if for some odd reason you aren’t we got a collection showcase that might amp up that excitement!

This time around, forum member Fastfingers21 graciously shared with us his collection, and wow does he have some gloomy armies going on! He even shared with us how he got started collection:
“What are these little dolls?” I asked my brother in 2010.  “Not dolls, DUNNYS!”  He then practically dragged me to a local record shop called the Sound Garden in Syracuse, NY.  Five minutes later I was sitting in his car, holding the I scream for ice cream dunny by Esther Kim.  I instantly was hooked.  The creative use of the platform, the bright colors, the display-ability of the art.  Over several years I have amassed quite the urban vinyl art collection, and met amazing friends, collectors, and artists along the way.  Here is a look at a few different “gallery” set-ups I have done.  It ranges from massive dunny walls to more organized displays, which I prefer.

and a Throw Back thursday to Dunny 2013 (nice setup too)

Dunny Art of War releases on Friday, June 27th!
