Synthetic darlings Janky and Guggimon are about to blow up the NFT world, just like they blew up Christie's auction house. Starting in a few hours, fans can participate in an amazingly cool event called the Janky Heist.

Vinyl toy giants, Superplastic, are entering the generative NFT world with 9,240 unique Jankys built from 22 original NFT characters. If you’re not familiar with this format, you basically buy an NFT and it is randomized into a completely unique piece of art. Whether you own one, or seventeen, no two will ever be alike. Another thing that sets this project apart from the animal kingdom, is that this is the first project featuring existing known characters. Between Superplastic, Janky, and Guggimon, they have around 3.5 million Instagram followers, so they were doing pretty well even before the Fortnite cameos.

In addition to owning something no one else in the world has, collectors can also earn bonus NFTs based off the original unbroken characters. All the information can be found on the WTF section of the drop site, but essentially, if you own all three parts of an Unbroken Janky during a certain time period, you will be rewarded with one of those NFTs for free.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you into the Fashion Horror movement, you still have time to check out the incredible auctions on Christie's, featuring eight special pieces created by some spectacular artists like Alex Pardee, Stickymonger, and Guggimon himself. You have about eight days left to bid on these specially curated characters each with their own backstory.

Before you join the party, make sure you read up on how the Japanese style auction will work. If you buy on Day 1, it will cost you a bit, but if you wait until the end, you may miss your chance at owning a piece of NFT history.

And last but not least, special shout out to Jayzee and Staxx, here’s to hoping we see you in this format next!
