What you see in my hand is a Dunny. It is a 3 inch vinyl toy from Kidrobot.
Not too long ago, I went nutsy for collecting these things. I have, literally, hundreds of these little guys in my home. I have more than I want because of a brilliant marketing ploy called the blind box. Blind Box means you purchase the little fucker without knowing which one is in there. That's right, I could buy four boxes at $10.99 each and could have potentially bought 4 of the same one. Each set of artist designed vinyl thingies consists of 16 or so designs, with a few variants, along with a list of odds for attaining each figure. So, if you get the 1 in 600 odds one, you can go directly to eBay and sell it for, maybe, $200 or so.
I know not everybody is into colorful plastic or they may find this childish attraction to toys symptoms of a Peter Pan complex, but I can't imagine giving these guys up! I said before, I buy these because I enjoy them, not because I wanna make a profit trading & dealing on eBay. Why would I have all of these nutty colorful things and not display them? No closet for them! I look at the above photo and I see multitudes of happiness in 3X3 squares. This affection for plastic is the equivalent of the broken down lazee-boy chair that makes its way into every cliche movie about the guy moving in with his girlfriend. I know some of you love optimists are saying, "When you find someone you really love, you'll be willing to give these up for them." Well, how's about they love me so much they let me keep them? Or, maybe if I find someone who really loves me and is well enough off that he has a few extra rooms, he lets me have my obsession room? (put together by a qualified interior designer).
So, for now, I am single, but I'm kept company by hundreds of 3 inch (and some 8 inch) colorful friends. One of my favorites is the one above. Sometimes we'll watch TV together and we'll laugh at the same things. He gets me. (not actually- I do not treat these figures as actual beings- I was being funny- They're plastic! - They don't talk to me!) This is why I am single.
