Basquiat Series Coming Soon!?!?!

Post by QTPie » Tue May 08, 2018 12:53 pm

I haven't heard any news of this series since the initial announcement, and the series is supposed to release in 10 days.

Image

I'm a big fan of Basquiat so I was pumped to see this series happen. The designs look on point too! I'm pretty confident this will be a case purchase for me (first since Arcane Divination). Anyone heard anything about the case exclusive or any other details? I'm chomping at the bit for more info!

I was on the verge of making this topic myself as it's a great looking series, and I really like almost all the designs.

Its well up there with the Warhol series and I can't wait to get my hands on them.

I really hope I got the exclusive. I didnt think to check with rotofugi but they mentioned they had case exclusives also but were sold out by the time I checked their page. Collect and display also mentioned exclusives but they are in UK.

For anyone that wants to learn more about this series, I've written a series of articles about the works by Basquiat that were translated onto these Dunny forms. The first part is available to read now with the subsequent four articles being published every two days:

He did get a couple basic figures for heart africa, I got a cool beanie too, but the colors were stricly red and white(red o red didnt look that weel). From that point on I could never have dreamed of the working with Warhol, and now even better Basquiat

Great article, Nick! I can't wait to see the write up on the rest of them. Its amazing seeing the original work alongside their Dunny incarnations.

This series turned out amazing! Easily, one of my all time favorites. That said, I'm a sucker for Basquiat's crowns, and there certainly are a lot of them in this series. I can't wait to see how this will look in the 5 or 8 inch forms.

I had a pretty solid case. If anyone is interested a took a video of my pulls here:

The two levels are divided by the case exclusive (gold with black crowns) with the left side being the top level, and the right side being the bottom level.

The only two I'm missing are the Mecca 1/48 chase and the white with black crown 1/48 chase. I have a spare Lover=Liar ??/?? if anyone is willing to make a trade.

Great series!!! Amazing metallic and gloss!

The ratios seem off tho. Everyone I know got two 1/48s in their case. It’s either the silver crown and the king pleasure, or the Mecca and white crown. So they really seem to be 1/24s, and should be priced accordingly.

That said, seeking a king pleasure and a silver crown!

Another great write up.

I was completely unaware that Basquiat produced a record. Now I'm on the hunt for the reissue of it that came out in 2014. My heart and soul wants to thank you Nick, but my wallet does not, haha.
