Visual artist Tristan Eaton, who created the iconic Dunny character with Paul Budnitz back in 2004, has released the first metal version of the character. Dubbed “New Money,” the 5-inch Kidrobot figure boasts an intricately-designed exterior with a shiny chrome finish.

Eaton covers the Dunny figurine with his signature collage-like style, incorporating the words “New Money” into the design. “It’s really about sarcastically hyping up the bling of it, you know. Kind of bringing together all these bling stereotypes in a way,” Eaton explains. “There’s gold chains in there, gold teeth…you know, all those elements of decadence. Kind of brought it all into one form.” While the piece embodies “bling” culture, Eaton also etches floral motifs into the metal, allowing “New Money” to exhibit more natural detailing.

Although the “New Money” collectible is currently out of stock, head over to Kidrobot’s website to browse more Dunny editions.

Elsewhere in art, Daniel Arsham will release an eroded ‘BRONZE BASKETBALL’ sculpture, the latest edition in his ‘Fictional Archaeology’ series.
