Mike Leavitt has had his first — and announced to be only — vinyl production version of an Art Army design produced: the "Banksy Action Figure." For those unfamiliar with the Art Army, it is a series of one-off sculptural figures made by Leavitt in the humorous likeness of famous artists. This 10-inch tall Banksy rendition, limited to 1000 copies with a promised one-time only production run, not only portrays the infamous street artist as a monkey — both a reference to his paintings of chimps and his penchant to hide his face behind a monkey mask — but also comes complete with a variety of fantastic accessories: a banana to feed his inner ape, a rat dressed like a copper (a mash-up of Banksy's rat paintings and his Rude Copper design), and a Disneyland diorama base complete with Guantanamo Bay detainee, a prank the artist had documented in his Exit Through The Gift Shop film. These fabulous additions to any passionate contemporary art collector's house are currently available exclusively from Magic Bodega for $100 apiece.
