Taiwan-based J.T Studio injects its signature street style into 1/6 versions of characters drawn from legend and popular culture. For their most recent release, lead designer Jei Tseng has created Astro Gaki, a riff on the legendary Astro Boy manga/anime character.
As is their tradition with new projects, J.T Studio has developed two Astro Gaki figures: ND.01 (None Dream) and WM.02 (Weaponized). ND.01 features the traditional, classic colors while WM.02 counters with a darker, colder black and robotic blue edition. From the jerseys and shorts to the shoes and the backpack, Astro Gaki impress with smart and stylish street fashion. Both editions include light-up LEDs in the eyes, ‘Error’ chest panels and blaster hands. Thanks to a clever, magnetic connector the light-up feature in the blaster hands works with and without the outer hands. Both editions are limited to 399 pieces.
While the single editions and the deluxe 2P set which includes a candy red jet pack accessory have sold out from J.T studios, the 2P set is still available for pre-order from USA-based Tenacious Toys for $499.99 through 1.2.19. The 2P set is scheduled to ship out in April 2020.
