Last July, Medicom Toy announced its collaboration with The Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat – an offering comprised of three unique BE@RBRICK collectible figures. Today, we finally get word of their release as they were previously slated for a December drop. Available in 100%, 400% and 1000% sizes, each piece features the same painting, however with slightly different layouts.
The Jean-Michel Basquiat BE@RBRICKS will release January 27 at select Medicom Toy stockists, with prices ranging between ¥10,800 JPY (approximately $99 USD) and ¥48,000 JPY (approximately $442 USD). They’ll also release on Yahoo’s Japan-based webstore.
