Scheduled for a launch on August 18th 2012 (6pm–9pm) @ The Sho Gallery is the "Dragons Custom Toy Show". A creation of UK Toy Collector Andy Kelly (@zombiekel) - who had "wanted to bring together some of the UK’s greatest artist in a single platform show and raise some money for charity at the same time". All proceeds of the show go to DiabetesUK

Due to the show being held in Wales, UK and the Dragon being their National Emblem, together with 2012 being the Year of the Dragon the show was to named ‘Dragons’ and then of course the chosen Platform had to be the Kidrobot Munnyworld Kracka. Shown here are some previews of customs for the show, which is also uploaded HERE on my FB-album - for without the efforts of Andy Kelley, this would not have happened :)
