After we broke the news on the upcoming Kaws x Medicom Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket toys, showcased at the artist’s first museum exhibition, we can inform you today that it looks like these will actually be coming to life.
“Upon closer inspection we noticed it was Pinocchio reworked in a style that only KAWS could do. Next to it was a museum info card: “Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket, 2010 – Produced by Medicom Toy, Copyright Disney”.
The million dollar question was… when or IF it will be released? The answer is a definitive YES. We just confirmed that Medicom is currently in the process of production and this figure is slated to be released (soon hopefully) in 2010 barring any production issues. This will be released as a package with Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket together.”
