Shipping on Friday (March 14th) is this Patrick Wong, 3" figure resin titled "MPC60" (after the legendary sampling drum machine of the same name). Priced at $35 plus shipping, they are limited to 30 pieces and come with a numbered card. This is the first release in a series of beat machines, which aims to highlight the classic Roger Linn designed Akai MPC60 12bit sampling drum machine first released in 1988. 

"The Akai MPC60 is so iconic, it made the perfect jump-off point for this series. I want to make a genealogy of samplers from the late 80s to 2000s such as the SP1200 and Maschine, marking an evolution of both in technology and music. So much of the music I grew up with was produced on these machines and that why I have dubbed the series: The machines that made a sound of a generation." explained Patrick Wong.

Only a handful are still available, so if you want one better act fast.
