Sheffield, UK-based duo TADO, in conjunction with Unbox Industries, are getting ready to release another ultra-limited edition of their Piggaphunt character. Piggaphunt was announced in 2008 and released through Rotofugi in a small edition thereafter. The resin figures are as scarce as their real life hybrid counterparts, which in fact, do exist.
Limited to just 50 unique pieces, each 5-inch resin Piggaphunt is a unique colorway including “flat, flouro, mono and metallic variations” for $150 each. Each Piggaphunt also comes with a free metal Micro-Phunt phone mascot/key chain. Super cute, but d’oh! They’re being sold blind-box style through lottery. I’d make a frowny emoticon except WordPress formats them weird. For those who are more adventurous than me, applications to secure a Piggaphunt must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 13th. Good luck, and if you get the green one: color me jealous (or, alternately, email me and name your price…).
If you can’t handle the surprise of blind boxes or the tension of the lottery system, you can still get blue, green, red and yellow Piggaphunt keychains through Rotofugi for $8 each here. Click through for a few more photos.
