To cap off the year, Medicom Toy has further expanded upon its lineage of MAFEX figures by transforming NBA legend Michael Jordan into a living room staple. In early 2020, the collectibles imprint paid homage to LeBron James by crafting the “kid from Akron” in his Los Angeles Lakers home threads.
The toy stands in at 16cm in height, and translates the look of the six-time champion and his classic Chicago Bulls away uniforms with great detail. Accessories arrive by way of black sweat bands and knee pads both dressed up on his left arm and leg, in addition to a pair of white crew socks and a fresh pair of Air Jordan 11 “Concords” — the colorway oft-seen during Jordan’s historic historic 1995-1996 season with the Bulls in which they went on to win 72 regular season games and the championship.
In addition, the figure also comes packaged with multiple hands and basketballs, an extra head that displays his signature tongue-out facial expression, the ever-classic Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” and the iconic Air Jordan 1 High “Chicago”.
