Japanese toy-maker Medicom has recently unveiled some new upcoming Bearbricks. Included in these releases are some collaborations with Japanese mixed martial artist Uno Caol’s Uno Caol Show-Ten brand (Caol released a Nike CF Low/Free 5.0 pack with Nike recently), a 3 pack of figures themed after late 70’s Japanese electropop band Yellow Magic Orchestra, a 400% Jack Sparrow (of the Pirates of the Caribbean Series) figure to commerate the upcoming release of the 3rd installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean, “At World’s End”. Rounding off the new releases are 512 MB USB sticks of memory each in the shape of the iconic Bearbrick. The USB stick is available in three different colors, each with a different saying on the front.
Anytime has recently released pictures of some new tees from Kaws created for Orignal Fake. A horizontally stripped black and white shirt with the signature Kaws “X” eyes is a good modification to a classic. The “Duck Bomb” logo is something we showed last week but these pictures have given us a better look.
Garage Work Industries have released pictures of their upcoming Matic Reflective Series jackets. Included is the classic M65 and A1 style jackets, however each jacket has been created with the use of 3M materials. When no light has been reflected, the 3M|65 jacket is charcoal grey while the 3M|A1 possess a reversible quality that maintains that all too familiar silver 3M look one side while the other side is black. These jackets provide great protection from the elements as well as that indispensable quality of safety for those without reflective devices when doing certain activities in the dark such as riding bikes.
Also slated to release is the Matic Rocker Chino pants in black or army green colors. These straight leg chino style pants have a classic style tailored cut as well as zipped back pockets and keyring attachments.
These pieces are only available through online orders and have created in small quantities, for info on ordering contact Garageworks Industries.
