So, it's been a little over a week and I'm extremely happy with the release of my Reindeer Dunny. It's a real surreal moment for me as I remember it beginning as an idea while walking down West Broadway to an Adobe Illustrator graphic to final product. Although I've collected 3" Dunnies before, I cannot get past how small the details and accessories are.
My only disappointment is that we couldn't keep the red nose. I originally designed the chases with red noses. Admittedly, I was inspired by the 1960's holiday claymation TV special and I made sure it did not look EXACTLY like a certain famous red-nosed reindeer. Technically speaking, the Dunny, being a caricature of a bunny rabbit, adding antlers would make it more like a jack-a-lope, rather than a reindeer. Either way, I'm glad it was still made and it turned out rather well.
I realize my designs can't appeal to everyone, but I am thrilled to know that most liked it and purchased several for themselves and their friends and family. To those people, thank you.
Happy Holidays, everyone. I hope you're all VERY NAUGHTY!
Woah! Am I crazy or has my Reindeer Dunny already been spotted in the wild?! My friend pointed this out to me. This photo showed up in a Taiwanese toy/lifestyle blog. Either way, it's kind of neat to see this sort of thing.
Speaking of Dunnies, I tried to buy Huck Gee's "Hello, I'm Insane" Dunny but it sold out in seconds on the website. I dashed over to KRNY to see a line and 15 minutes later, find out that they were sold out too.
I wish my Dunny sold out as fast. >:)
