Igor Ventura has since revealed TWO more Custom Dunnys in his “ART OF WAR REJECTS” series that he will be making available in November at Designer Con (Nov 19-20, 2016) - featuring ALBINO CHAMELEON and PRANKISH KNIGHT!
AND besides swell visuals to gawk at, I’d tap Igor himself for a lil’Q&A to find out MORE about what folks can expect from the series! Featuring 5 designs with multiple copies - plus one chase - ART OF WAR REJECTS looks to be one hella series to come!
Scroll down for a read, and stay connected via his Instagram @igorventura for more reveals!
TOYSREVIL: How did the ART OF WAR REJECTS series come about?
IGOR VENTURA: I was originally only going to make a mini-series for Designer Con with the Wobbly Dunny design, which was submitted for the Art of War series. I posted it on the KR Forums, and someone asked if it was a series with other designs, or if I called it a series because there were multiple copies of this one design. That gave me an idea, and I decided to produce some of the other designs I submitted and make a series with the rejected designs…
ALBINO CHAMELEON: "His lack of melanin is no obstacle for him. Master of the jungle, even Rambo would be afraid of this horned, long-tonged reptilian! He’s a guerrilla expert, camouflage extraordinaire. Better watch your step! You’d regret stepping on his tail by accident forever! "
TOYSREVIL: How many tribes/teams of custom Dunnys in the series are we to expect?
IGOR VENTURA: There are already these 3 designs I finished (Wobbly Dunny, Prankish Knight and Albino Chameleon). Since there isn't much time left till DCon (and I don't have much free time to work on them LOL), I'll only make 2 more designs. Wobbly Dunny and Prankish Knight will have 5 pieces each, and the other designs will only be 3 pieces each. I'll also include ONE Geek Force Dunny (*the CHASE Dunny) with sculpted and flocked Jedi Robe, GID stars painted on the ears and glossy finished, making it 20 pieces in total.
PRANKISH KNIGHT: "Do you know what’s mightier than the sword? Imagination! You don’t need a fancy, ultra-modern videogame to have fun. Anything can be used to turn a devilish kid into a fearless dragon-slayer knight. Nobody can stop him… unless Mommy shows up and tell him it’s dinner-time!"
TOYSREVIL: Will these be available “as-is” or via blind box? If BB, is there one/more-than-one CHASE to look out for? A “Golden Ticket” for a 5” custom would be pretty sweet! LOL
IGOR VENTURA: They will be sold via blind box. Still thinking about the price... the only chase will the the Geek Force.
I thought about making a 5" Albino Chameleon (or my Unfair Law sheriff, which was also submitted to the series) as the GT, in fact! But I don't think I'll be able to finish it by DCon, so I'll only include the ticket, and will produce it after I return to Brazil and will mail the piece to the lucky winner once it's finished!
