Koraters x Medicom – Banpo Special Edition
Japanese artist Koraters worked with artist/sculptor T9G to turn her Banpo character into a vinyl toy. The cute and quirky Banpo is a ghostly creation arisen from the bones of birds who have passed on. For production, Koraters is working with Medicom who is currently offering a pre-order on a special edition of the figure.
The Medicom special edition features two 1.7” Banpo characters (Gray + Black) atop a small swing made of real wood complete with metal chain. This unusual hanging piece creates the illusion of two bird sprits nestled high up in a tree. However, perhaps completely unintentionally – the wire support structure invokes a different meaning for me as well with its similarity to a bird cage. The unique piece is currently available via Medicom for 5800 yen (~ $58) for overseas ordering through Halloween (10.31).
