Last year, Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama and AMKK curator Azuma Makoto teamed up for a 12-foot-tall aluminum T-Rex sculpture. Situated at Bangkok’s Central Embassy, the installation, titled “SORAYAMA Space Park by AMKK,” featured Sorayama’s largest sculpture yet. The acclaimed artist is now joining Medicom Toy for a pared-down version of his monumental work.

Measuring 24 inches long, the chromed T-Rex sculpture is situated in a menacing stance, with one foot placed in front of the other in forward movement. Sorayama crafts the cyborg dinosaur with a focus on individual movement and detailed form. The release is part of the artist’s upcoming “Trex” exhibition at Nanzuka’s “2G” Studio, which will include paintings and new cast sculptures of robotic dinosaurs.

Retailing for ¥66,000 (approx. $625), the Sorayama T-Rex figure will be available to purchase via lottery on Medicom Toy’s website from March 7 to 8. Lottery winners will be announced on March 14.

In other news, Medicom Toy and Royal Selangor have joined forces once again for a 400% Royal Selangor Arabesque Magic BE@RBRICK.
