Medicom Toy is once again teaming up with the estates of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat for the fifth installment of its limited-edition BE@RBRICK collaboration. Continuing to exemplify each artist’s unmistakable style, the two new iterations hone in on Haring and Basquiat’s renowned influence within the realms of pop art, graffiti, neo-expressionism, and more.

Offered up in 100% and 400% sets as well as a 1000% version, the Keith Haring BE@RBRICK sees the Japanese figurine doused in the artist’s iconic Pop Shop style. The Jean-Michel Basquiat BE@RBRICK showcases the artist’s enigmatic aesthetic whereby characteristically-spontaneous lines paint a disfigured individual that’s been placed on the collectible’s head, chest, and legs.

Take a detailed look at both BE@RBRICKs via the gallery above. They are available for preorder via Medicom Toy’s CJ Mart webshop, with 100% and 400% sets retailing for ¥13,200 JPY (approximately $120 USD) and 1000% figures priced at ¥52,800 JPY (approximately $475 USD).

For more related news, a federal appeals court has ruled that developers must pay millions in damages to graffiti artists.
