    Dunny Series 5 trading party 

    kidrobot will be dropping their latest series of the very adorable and very collectable Dunny vinyl lind box series this Thursday.

    BUT! you can get a jump on everyone else by attending the special Dunny Series 5 release and trading party this Wednesday night at Urbanz Toys.  Urbanz Toys is an authorized kidrobot retai spot, so you cna rest assured there will be tons of toys available and also tons of fun.  The last time the atypicalLIVING crew invaded an Urbanz trading party, we were treated to free food and drink, tons of cool people hanging out in front and the fun of finding not one, but two Golden Tickets.

    I can only expect to receive the same results this time around.

    The trading party goes down this Wdnesday from 6-8pm at Urbanz Toys in Kaimuki, across the way from Mechahawaii.

    For more information on the party, check out Urbanz Toys.

    Fatcap Series 2 Release and Trading Party 

    This Thursday marks the release of the second edition of Fatcaps from Kid Robot.  And to celebrate this momentous occasion, Urbanz Toys in Kaimuki will hold a special release and trading party.

    If you’ve ever been to one of Urbanz infamous release parties, you know that there’s tons of toys being traded, even more being bought inside of the store and, knowing the way that the Urbanz crew likes to get down, a special surprise based on the toy release.

    So, bring down all your toys and go and cop some more at the Fatcap release party this Thursday, starting at 6pm.  The event lasts until 8pm, so there’s plenty of time to make it down to Next Door for the East3 x Kid Robot release as part of Dig Lifestyle’s 3rd anniversary.

    For more info on this event, check out the Urbanz Toys site.

    French Dunny coverage in the Advertiser

    The French Dunny series release at Urbanz Toys garnered some mainstream media attention, as the Star-Bulletin sent out a team (writer Gary Chun, photographer Cindy Ellen Russell, and videographer Jason Gengabus) to cover the happenings for a features story.

    Well, the story ran yesterday and it was very positive, equating the vinyl toy market to one of urban youth and art appreciation.  What was also pretty dope was the accompanying video with the article.  Very well done with interviews with buttrpecan1, Kathy and a shot of myself holding the very classy combination of White Wine and French Fries.

    Check the Article here.  And view the video below.

    atypicalLIVING covers… French Dunny Release at Urbanz Toys 

    img_4666.jpg

    The French Dunny series got released with a bang this past week at Urbanz Toys in Kaimuki. Urbanz and Kid Robot provided Hawaii’s toy collecting massive with a special release/trading party featuring all things French: red and white wine, creme puffs, brie and fig tarts and… French Fries. Yes, French Fries. Nothing screams classy like French Fries.

    Anyway, the release was pretty epic and Urbanz actually got a pretty good amount of stock in. And what a lucky bunch Urbanz got, as not one, but TWO golden tickets were found in the boxes. One was found by buttrpecan1 and the other found by Kathy herself. SO, to spread the karma, she hooked me up with a freebie box to go along with the traditional last two in the case that I normally do at these types of events. The freebie one turned out to be the green one in the toy pic, along side the white hunter dude (1/100) and the gray carbon neutral one, which, from a design standpoint, is pretty interesting.

    Overall, it was a well done event by the Urbanz kids.  Seeing the collectors en masse was a great and the wine really helped out with some trades.  Seriously.

    Awesome job and props to Kathy and Scott for throwing this together.  Now, if I can only petition Kid Robot to make the next Dunny series L.A. based so there can be some bandannas and 40s in brown bags at the next event.

    One can dream, right?

    Check out the rest of the photos from the event in the atypical Flickr.

    Dunny Trading party this Thursday at Urbanz Toys 

    Urbanz Toys, in association with Kid Robot, will be hosting yet another Dunny Trading Party, coinciding with the release of the French Dunny Series.  Currently, the Urbanz Gang is out of town for a business trip, but they’ll be open this Thursday night for all the festivities.

    As is tradition with the Trading Party, Urbanz will be closed until 6PM that day and will extend their hours until 9PM.  Expect food, trading, prize giveaways and, oh yeah, the release of the French Dunny Series.  The Urbanz boards have been ablaze with trades, so, if you got some vinyl you need to get, that’s the spot to hit up.  Plus, you get to place names with faces, so that’s always a plus.

    As is tradition with me and Lofa, we’ll be there to cover the whole thing, and we’ll be the ones that buy the last two Dunnies, so, prepare for the hilarity to ensue from that.

    So, to recap, the Dunny Trading party and French Dunny Release is this Thursday night at 6PM at Urbanz Toys in Kaimuki.

    For more info, and directions on how to get there, hit up the Urbanz Toys website.
