Medicom Toy in Japan has released a new limited edition VCD (vinyl collectible doll) of Andy Warhol. The figure is available in two versions out now (above) and two versions available in December. It stands 9 inches tall and will set you back about ~ $98 USD + shipping.
The standard edition figure (above) comes with 60s and 80s hair options, as well as a Velvet Underground shout-out banana accessory.
The silkscreen version (above) refers to Warhol’s days of silkscreening prints at The Factory. If I stare at these long enough, I start to see a merging of Jane and Trent Lane from MTV’s Daria. Also, these four Andy Warhol VCD editions would look sharp next to Jailbreak’s four Barack Obama action figures (which came in similar colorways).
Medicom’s Andy Warhol vinyl collectible dolls are available online here and here. And remember, just like Andy said: “Art is what you can get away with.”
