Up there on top of our holiday gift wishlist is the new [email protected] figure by Haroshi, which was produced by Karimoku and released by MEDICOM TOY. Announced in July but in the making for over three years now, this wooden version of the iconic figure follows the tradition of the Japanese artist's immaculate craftsmanship and aesthetic.

Built from local maple wood that imitates the colorful layers of a skateboard deck (Haroshi's exclusive work material), the figure is 100% Made in Japan and another example of high-quality craftsmanship, two things we're BIG fans of. Hand produced by leading furniture manu­facturer Karimoku, the production is so detailed that the wood grain on each arm matches the grain on the torso when moved forward, revealing a perfect continuation of layers.
