Expert Japanese woodworkers Karimoku have joined forces with acclaimed sculptor Haroshi on a new Medicom Toy BE@RBRICK figure. Sized at 400%, the collaborative piece features varying shades of colorful wood grains. These natural materials were repurposed from discarded skateboard decks, an approach that is predominantly observed in Haroshi’s perennial artistic practice.

Check out the figure above and expect an official launch on December 14 on Medicom Toy’s website. Each piece will set you back ¥396,000 JPY (approx. $3,643 USD).
