MAN-E-NEWS// The Atorpa 8″ Dunny from Jason Limon…

The exquisite painting and sculpt style of the revered Jason Limon will finally be adorning a production toy, with the post-apocalyptic Atorpa 8″ Dunny receiving an official announcement yesterday. As with the recently released Supernatural from 64colors, Kidrobot are really stepping up a gear, with Atorpa featuring the beautiful curves, unique sculpt style and meticulous attention to detail that has collectors queing around the block to acquire his work. Retailing for $70, Atorpa has been limited to just 1000 pieces worldwide, and will be available from  April 26th at all good Kidrobot retailers.

Signing events will be taking place at Kidrobot’s NY, LA and San Francisco stores between April 24th-26th, so be sure to check the Kidrobot blog if you’re interested in swinging by…

“In Jason Limon’s post-apocalyptic Earth, humans have ravaged the planet, and plant life has found a way to make a drastic shift to survive. Atropa comes to fruition, and in abundance, consumes the planet. They commandeer the bodies of remaining people and animals, blending mammal and plant to create a new life form. Body becomes seed, leaves become wings, and memories live on flowering vines. Atropa is the new life form, and the only one that can survive.

Atropa is a type of flowering plant, the name deriving from Atropos, the oldest of the three fates in Greek mythology that ended the life of each mortal by cutting their thread.”
