Rendered in a series of banded colors running throughout its design, the “Dancing Bears” Bearbricks are now available from Medicom Toy for ¥1,600 JPY (approximately $14 USD) and ¥36,000 JPY (approximately $307 USD) respectively.

Medicom Toy has tapped Andy Warhol on a number of occasions and now the Japanese toy giant is calling upon another late, great artist: Jackson Pollock.

Kidrobot & Sket One transform the Dunny into a Sriracha bottle

Fresh off the release of the Ron English and Mark Dean Veca-designed figures, Kidrobot is back at it — this time with a spicy take on its signature Dunny.

Designed by Los Angeles-based visual artist Sket One — who previously decorated Medicom Toy’s Bearbrick in the Huy Fong Foods motif — the three-inch-tall figure is transformed into a sriracha bottle and will come in two variations: “full” and “empty.”

Blind boxed, the $14.99 USD sriracha bottle Dunny will soon be available via Kidrobot’s web store in limited quantities.
