Japanese artist Taku Obata is known for his large-scale wood sculptures of B-Boys. Last year saw the release of his Sofb Boy soft vinyl figures (Unbox) bringing his work to a much wider audience as a collectible. Now comes the B-Girl Down Jacket Nagame polystone sculpture from Medicom Toy.
A higher-end offering, the first edition of B-Girl stands an impressive 13.8” tall, is limited to 100 pieces, and ¥will be available for ¥50,000 (~$449) in late February. This first release is being done in conjunction with Watari-Um Museum, the site of the artist’s recent exhibition which featured the original, large-scale B-Girl sculpture.
