Japanese grunge label Glamb teamed up with Medicom Toy to release a sleek series of Throw Mickey VCD (“Vinyl Collectible Doll”) figures. Arriving in monochromatic and color editions, the vinyl artwork features the famed Walt Disney set to lob a flower bouquet — a nod to Banksy’s iconic 2005 artwork titled Rage, the Flower Thrower or Love is in the Air which portrays a masked Palestinian throwing a bouquet of flowers.

This summer saw slew of Mickey Mouse-inspired editions from Medicom Toy and the toy manufacturer’s longstanding cohorts. In July, Medicom Toy released a Mickey Mouse edition set with Swarovski crystals with a hefty price tag of $7,820 USD. The following month, Medicom Toy partnered up with fragment design to release a translucent BE@RBRICK portraying the mouse’s likeness.

Glamb and Medicom Toy’s Throw Mickey figures are scheduled to be released and shipped this month. Each figure is priced at ¥ 7,800 JPY (approx. $74 USD). Get a closer look at both versions in the slideshow above.
