Taku Obata x Unbox Industries – SOFB Boy (12.2)


The day has come… Unbox will release SOFB Boy by Japanese sculptural artist Taku Obata on Saturday (12.2) at 7 AM PDT from their webshop for $85 (+ s/h). Highly anticipated, these should go quickly.  If you miss this first opportunity, Unbox has your back with another online drop planned. 

First shown exactly a year ago in proto form, the figure translates one of Obata’s towering wood B Boy sculptures into soft vinyl via a digital scan.  Besides the affordability and more practical form factor, the dynamic soft vinyl figure offers new possibilities with impressive articulation (9 points: elbows, wrists, legs, arms, and head ???) transcending the static presentation of Obata’s other mediums including bronze and wood.  SOFB Boy’s flexibility to Tut however you see fit, is a perfect match for the frenetic hip hop dance form.
