Now this is the kind of release that reminds me why I fell in love with designer art toys in the first place! JK5’s RJ-K5 Astrofresh Basketball Droyds combine three of my favorite things (street art, basketball and Star Wars) in a fresh new way. I have to give Kidrobot props with this one. They’ve finally gone back to their roots and released a true urban art toy with an old school feel.
This is not the Droyd you are looking for. Joining two of the best things on earth, New York based Flowbot artist JK5 blends his passion for hoops and a certain George Lucas series to create the RJ-K5 Astrofresh Basketball Droyds. Available in 2 editions: the regulation orange colored Galactic Game Ball and the retro red, white, and blue Hyperspace All-Star, these figures are crafted of resin and stand 8.5 inches tall.
The Rj-K5 Astrofresh Basketball Droyds will retail for $100 each and are scheduled to land at all Kidrobot retail locations, Kidrobot.com and select retails worldwide on March 8th. Only a perfect number of each colorway has been produced (327 to be exact), so make sure you act fast. May The Ball Be With You!
