Otto Bjornik"s Kwardo Kwins.

 Otto Björnik Never seems to amaze me with yet again another incredible custom,has just revealedKwardo Alas – four custom 3” Dunnys that are part of his ongoing playing card inspired Kwardo Kwin project.  As you’ll see in Otto’s story text below, the four ‘Ace’ horsemen, Arjun (Club), Aden (Heart), Ashur (Spade) and Aubin (Diamond),  serve as protectors of the four Kwardo Kwins.

The four sisters became more and more beautiful with each passing day. As word of their beauty spread, kings from neighboring lands came to court the fair young maidens. And so it happened that each sister became betrothed to a king before her eighteenth birthday. When they became of age, the nobleman sent his daughters to the four corners of the land to live in their new kingdoms. He selected four of his bravest horsemen to accompany and protect them on their long journeys.

Custom Lobster Dunny

Check out this great piece done  by Alex Vaughan, it is a 3" toy and is a once off.
This is an example of great vision.

UME Toys's "Chester Rimington," a custom Freak Store Fonzo!

Look carefully at the above picture, follow the various textures and details, drink it all in, and recognize the talent of Mr. Richard "UME Toys" Page. Entitled "Chester Rimington," we're informed that Page didn't create this for any specific purpose but rather just for fun… he had a copy of the 6-inch blank Fonzo platform lying around so he working his creative magic upon it.
This is a great piece, love the added pieces to give it a totally different look.

Reactor-88’s Custom Corner – Otto Bjornik

Welcome to Reactor-88's Custom Corner. To wrap up 2012, we're highlighting Björn Edingaka Otto Björnik. Björn resides in the Philippines and is a trained architect, but has pursued a career as a designer/illustrator with much success. Björn came across the vinyl toy scene back in 2009, but didn't actually start toy customizing until a few years later. Hoping to realize his dream to be a painter, his early works were more just exercises with acrylics. At the same time, he experimented with transferring his character illustrations to toys and that definitely clicked with the toy community. My first glimpse of Björn's work was his very impressive Dunny chess set. Looking beyond the shear feat of creating an entire set of chess custom toys, his actual designs stood out as very unique. They have a very classic, delicate, and whimsical look- almost as if they stepped right out of an antique fairytale book. He also sticks to a very minimal palette- usually focusing on black and white and sometimes one accent color, which also accentuates the old world feel. And while I'd like to keep this totally focused on toys- his 2D pen and ink artwork is phenomenal and should definitely be checked out as well. So to peruse all of his work and much more, head over to the Otto Björnik website.

To kick off the Mini Marshall line we’re coming out of the gates with a new design just in time to celebrate winter and all things snowy, Abominable Marshall, The Wild Boy of the Snows!

Spaced-Out Bunny:

He is inclined to spend most of his time conversing with himself, daydreaming, and wrestling with Supersymmetric String Theory. Highly sensitive to premonitions and omens Spaced-Out Bunny is thought to know the secrets of the universe and the fate of the planet, but he's far too burnt-out and forgetful to share his vital knowledge.

Kwadro Kwin - By Otto Bjorniks

It has been written that ‘War is the trade of kings.’ But we all know that behind every great king, there lies an even more powerful queen. This is the story of four sisters who were each destined for royalty. They were the beautiful daughters of a wealthy nobleman who lived in the Center Valley. They spent their days playing spirited rounds of mahjong and betting against each other in lively, trash-talk-laden games of marbles.

QORTNI had a temper that was quick to flare and difficult to extinguish. Had there been anger management courses in her village, she would have flunked every one. She had a glare that could stop a snarling hyena and send it whimpering away. 
QUILLA was an incurable romantic and masterful daydreamer. She could often be found chasing frightened woodland creatures in the hopes of singing with them.  To this day, that has not happened.
QIANA smiled and skipped wherever she went.  Luck, it seemed, always seemed to follow her around like puppies eager to be noticed.  This annoyed her sisters greatly.
QUARTA wanted to have it all.   She liked to fill her pockets with baubles and gems, some of which were hers and some of which were not.  She also had the habit of licking every bonbon in the box so no one else would eat them.

Shadow Friend 8″ Dunny by Angry Woebots

Shadow Friend is the perfect playmate. He follows you wherever you go, playing right along. As a backwards twin to the original Woes design by Angry Woebots, Shadow Friend takes all of the gushy, “I heart you” feelings associated with mammoth cuddle monsters, and replaces them with an awkward nervous fear.
Inspired by his 3-inch 2Tone Dunny, this is a darker version of his iconic stressed out giant panda. Showing off its latest catch of speared fish, the 8-inch Shadow Friend Dunny intimidates with hot pink beady eyes and a one-fanged snarl. Representing the number of Giant Pandas left in the wild, 1000 Deep is printed on the back of Dunny’s head, and black skull printed on its chest, a symbol of the species struggle to stay alive. Like their fuzzy counterparts, Shadow Friend Dunnys have limited numbers – only 1250 are available. December 6 you can see them in their natural habitat at Kidrobot stores,, and select retailers.
