Medicom Toy celebrates another legendary New York artist with its latest VCD (Vinyl Collectible Doll) release. Rifting off its past release of Andy Warhol, this newest figure pays homage to the late Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Coming in a monochromatic colorway, the figure stands 240mm in height and depicts a young Jean-Michel Basquiat with his signature hairstyle. The figure also has paint-splatter detailing on the shoes, track jacket, and jeans. The figure is available for order now over at CJ Mart for a price of ¥9,504 JPY (approximately $87 USD).
