HX Studio x QUICCS x Martian Toys — HX-TEQ


We've come to expect inspired designs ranging from street smart styles to pop culture riffs from the ongoing TEQ63 line from QUICCS and Martian Toys. The upcoming HX-TEQ continues to set a high bar.  The collabo production edition designed by Barcelona-based HX Studio features the artist's signature robotic rust aesthetic. The details seem to be on point from the all-over print hoodie with HX Studio logo to the rust effects which are quite impressive, especially for a production edition.

HX-TEQ will be available in an ultra limited preview release (six pieces) the opening of HX Studio's Bots show  at Clutter Gallery on Saturday (1.12) at 6 PM. If you can't make it to the show, rest assured that the full production run is on its way.

Michael Jordan Pop! from Funko at Foot Locker (1.12)


u: Not a Foot Locker exclusive.

Over the years Funko has released POP! figures of nearly any NBA player you can think of.  All but one.  His Airness. MJ.  MIA -- until now.  Footlocker will release the Michael Jordan Pop! on Saturday (1.12) at select stores.  Check their Launch Locator for the closest store that's carrying the #23 Pop.   After a bit more digging, it's pretty clear that the MJ Pop! (#23) is not a Foot Locker exclusive but rather that they will be releasing it first.  There have been rumblings about a #45 variant as well.
