David Weeks - Dunny

David Weeks' Dunny edition debuts today. Called the Chiseler, the Dunny is fashioned after David Weeks' poseable timber toys - Hanno the Gorilla and Ursa the Bear. Hand-carved from zebra-striped hard pine, this is a super-limited (and super-expensive!) edition of five, priced at $1,200.
"Despite the swivel head and arms, each distinct Chiseler is less a plaything than an individualized artwork, right down to its custom-crafted wooden crate displaying the action figure's laser-etched image. Each sculptural Chiseler subtly differs from its sibling, resulting in a real Dunny rarity: a one-of-a-kind creation made just for you."
Stop by Kid Robot in NYC to see the David's Dunny for yourself.
