SOFB BOY Vinyl Figure by Taku Obata x Unbox Industries

Check out this rad new figure SOFB BOY by Taku Obata! Produced by Unbox Industries, it’s got that classic urban vinyl feel that the designer toy scene has been seriously lacking the past few years. The Blot’s been watching the progress of this fantastic new piece for a while now on Instagram, and I’m super pumped to learn it’s finally dropping this weekend!

Taku Obata, who is based in Saitama, Japan, has drawn upon one of the vital elements of Hip Hop culture and channeled it into truly breathtaking figural art that captures the energy and raw power of the B-Boy. As part of his crew, Unity, or through his incredible wood carving, Obata has successfully intertwined hip-hop into his career with breathtaking results.

SOFB BOY is a soft vinyl interpretation of an original wooden sculpture by Obata that was digitally scanned for a “virtual” museum project with ANA in 2016. Unbox was then allowed to use that data to produce an exact soft vinyl interpretation of the sculpture that translates the craftmanship of Obata's original into a new exciting form, which also allows for poseability and dynamism in the hands of the owner.

The SOFB BOY soft vinyl figure by Taku Obata stands 25cm tall and features nine points of articulation. Packaged in a full color printed box, this exciting new release will go on sale this Saturday, December 2nd, at the Unbox Industries online store for $85.
