JRYU x KIDROBOT COMING SOON??? A NEW TEASER HAS US WONDERING!

11102770_899508280091756_4128872579408311366_n-1After the announcement of a canceled AoS series last fall we weren’t sure when we would see another JRyu x Kidrobot project. Well potentially that wait might be shorter than we once thought! Today JRyu revealed an ambiguous teaser of the the above image. As you can see it features the KR logo, a key, all on a black background. Not a whole lot, but enough for us to hope that this is a sign of things to come! If there is anything to this developing story we will be sure to keep you up to date, make sure to check UVD for the latest updates.

PATRICK WONG DROPS A CUSTOM ‘KILLA INSTINCT’ FROM BIC PLASTICS

unnamed-48Canadian illustrator Patrick Wong presents his latest privately commissioned art toy, entitled “Snow Pilot Killa Instinct”. The custom  plays off the urban vinyl/graffiti-inspired graphics of the Marka27 original figure with the addition of the classically styled b-boy Kangol striped hat. Further emphasizing the graffiti and Hip Hop associations, Wong takes up the Pilot marker and snow camouflage military graphic motifs – the Pilot Brand’s stripes being the street bomber’s weapon of choice and signifying one of the best, sought-after markers in the graffiti canon.

If you are interested in a piece created just for you, Wong has taken up residency in a new studio art space. He is currently accepting commissions by private collectors and can be contacted by email HERE.
