Cue dramatic music... Go!
I often refer to Hip Hop as the closest thing to the fountain of youth you can find in reality. It's a culture that, at the root of it, encourages everyone to stay in touch with their childhood, no matter how old or gangster, for that matter...ha. Whether it's Wu-tang donning comic book names and rhyming over Marvel theme music, to MF Doom in Dr Doom's mask, to the "world news" of Gucci Man's Ice Cream Cone Face Tattoo, Hip Hop remains close to it's youth. Mind you, this all coming from a guy who wears comic book T-Shirts everyday and can hardly contain his excitement for upcoming Marvel Movies (EX: The Mighty Thor on 6.17.11 True Believers!).
All that considered, it makes perfect sense for Fifth Element to finally enter the world of Designer Toys. This is a collaboration we are giddy about, as a retailer and as fans. If you ever made a trip to the Rhymesayers office you are certain to see your fair share of Dunny's, not to mention the other toys and action figures, abound. The news of Dunny Parties at Robot Love would spark lengthy conversations and web searches to peep the latest series.
We are now proud and excited to announce Fifth Element as an official retailer for Kidrobot in the Twin Cities and at www.fifthelementonline.com! All the better, it's just in time for their latest Dunny Azteca II Series! We'll be hosting our first Dunny Launch and Trading party on Thursday (1.20.11) at 5 PM Sharp!
