altruism, david foox, dunny, kidrobot, organ donor, vinyl figures

totally cool trumps altruism: artist david foox’s vinyl figures meant to raise awareness for organ donors.

david foox (of foox-u) has designed this series of wee transplant vinyl figures. while i like how cool and collectable they are (think dunny), his inspiration came from his uncle’s double lung (!!!) transplant. in the designer’s words: The ORGAN DONORS toy concept has brought together some very important considerations. Firstly, I wanted to make something that everyone could identify with and see something familiar in the ORGAN DONORS. Secondly, I wanted to raise awareness for this issue/cause. And thirdly, I wanted to create something quasi-interactive with regard to the blind box and availability of different characters in the ORGAN DONORS world.

eyeballs (or the residents…choose your weapon!)

from the seller: There are 9 different organs and a total of 24 variants of the characters in the line, each is made of vinyl, measures 3.25\” tall, costs $15.00 USD a piece and can be found at the following vinyl shops – Kidrobot, Munky King, Hi-5 or ordered here if in stock. Some are more rare than others (Black Market Kidneys, Pickled Liver, etc) and all come wearing the vinyl hospital gown with the butt cheeks showing.

Sold individually as a blind box edition here.
