Famed Japanese toymakers Medicom Toy has reignited its partnership with UK anti-advertising output Brandalism for yet another must cop toy, this time paying tribute to Banksy’s “Bomb Hugger” portrait.
The symbolically potent statue, standing at 320mm, portrays a young girl hugging a bomb that has been dropped by a military airplane. In 2007, Banksy sold a painting of the figure for some $41,000, making it one of his most prestigious works. The duo launched a similar polystone model back in January, but this one has been coated with a tonal black finish.
The Bomb Hugger toy is available for a price of $580 at HK-based retailer WOAW’s official online shop. Head here for more information.
Now check out Banksy’s latest mural — an homage to the one and only Jean Michel Basquiat.
