It's only been around for 12 years, but Banksy's Flower Thrower stencil has cemented itself as one of the most iconic pieces of graffiti ever produced. Now it's going from the wall to the windowsill. Premiering as a prototype back in June, the production piece, manufactured by Medicom, is now up for pre-order for Japanese customers. There's no info yet on a Western release, but we're expecting this to be a pretty limited piece, since the Japanese pre-orders close on January 10 and the toy doesn't ship out until May.
Flower Thrower is just one part of Banksy's ongoing collaboration with Medicom, with housewares and a vinyl version of his Love Rat stencil also on their way. Keep it tuned here for more news and availability as it develops.
