Japanese toy and lifestyle brand Medicom just dropped a ton of reveals for the coming months. From Sanrio keychains to a Flatwoods Monster kaiju, here are what you need to keep an eye on.
Expanding on their relationship with Banksy, the company will be releasing three items featuring the graffiti artist's Love Rat character: a pillow, floor mat, and wall clock. If Medicom's recent Flower Thrower preorders are any indication, these will go quick. They're slated to drop on January 30.
Partnering with UNDERCOVER and Sanrio, the brand will also be releasing a collection of keychain versions of previously existing vinyl toys. A few of these feature Hello Kitty holding UNDERCOVER's iconic GIAPPLE Bluetooth speaker. One is a recreation of last year's My Melody toy, sans hedgehog companion, and two versions of UNDERCOVER's own Rebel Bear will also be available. These also launch on January 30.
In May, we'll get a new colorway for West Virginia's second-most-famous cryptid, the Flatwoods Monster. Standing 10 inches tall, a green to yellow gradient fills out the body while a glow red halo encompasses the unmistakable spade-shaped head. And those are some damn creepy arms. This release is scheduled for May.
Finally, Graffiti artist D*Face, AKA Dean Stockton, will be releasing a new vinyl bust after taking a break from the scene for a few years. In his typically humorous style, this amazingly sculpted bust depicts a subverted image of Ludwig van, complete with D*Face's signature temple wings. Needless to say, Alex DeLarge would not be amused. This piece should retail for about $400 and will drop in June.
