    Yeah, dude... it's seriously my favorite Dunny ever. It's a conversation starter... people see it and just start asking questions about it.

    This should be in the CUSTOM section, no?

    I'd say yes, but I think the mods are still trying to iron out what clearly defines a custom, and I think George made about 20 of these. See here....

    Sorry... It seriously seems like everything I do here is wrong. :/

    I figured since they were wax sculpts that were molded and cast in resin in a number greater than one that they were just a low run resin toy. I was considering the cast head sculpt as the actual limited production piece.

    I think I'm going to refrain from posting anything else. I don't want to mess up the site.

    Post away, don't worry, the mods are here to tidy things up if nessecary.

    there is a friendly debate going on over what constitutes a "custom". I don't think anyone minds, just helps to know what section we should put things in.

    It's all good :)

    Cool... I try my best to help out here with pics and info. This is honestly one of the best sites on the webbernets, and I recommend it to everyone I know who collects toys.

    I personally think a custom is a one-of-a-kind thing made using an existing toy as a platform... I can see why the Skull Dunny would be lumped in with the customs because of the use of the Dunny body. The skull, however, still makes me think more of a low run resin toy.

    I'm fine with it being in whatever section everyone decides it needs to be in... it's a GREAT figure no matter what! ;)

    I am not really a fan of dunnys, but this is awesome. I would like one of his custom skulls, it looks even better with no body!

    I'd like to pipe in and say this is a custom. I took someone Else's Dunny and changed and added to it, hence made it a custom. I don't think it should matter how many there are. (which by the way is now more than 20) There was no closed number of these, and more can be made if someone wants. You can contact me through the Toy Break forum.

    As I am not an artist (I am an industrial designer) my views come from a production side. I agree with George, once a figure is used as a platform its a custom.

    I wouldn't consider it a "custom" if it was a production release by the original company, then again Mark Nagata makes many "customs" and releases them.

    I am starting to think there should be a few "custom" categories.

    BTW Welcome George :)

    Great to hear the artists view. I have just ordered one of these skull dunnys, and a couple of custom skulls. Can't wait to add these to my collection.

    As for the "custom" discussion, I have submitted a few pieces to the custom section. The koibito is a one of a kind color way by the artist. I would say this is a custom.

    The blobpus is a one of a kind color way for an exhibition, although it is also part of a limited run of 15?

    I'm not sure if the eyezons are custom? They are hand painted
    and of a limited run of six.

    Custom? Limited run? Not sure?

    I think Huck Gee called his limitied releases "production customs".

    to me it seems simple - if it's based on an existing toy - it's a custom. if there's more then one, it's a "production custom" or however you want to call it, but having multiples doesn't make it less of a custom.
