Ok so I'm guessing Banksy has nothing to do with these.. But wouldn't Medicom have to get a license to reproduce his work in some form?

They're pretty pricey for a non official figure?

I don't know much about em as Just came across them.

They look nice, but yes, Pest Control has confirmed that they have nothing to do with Banksy.

Those are NOT by banksy, nor does he endorse them.

1) Technically, they aren't reproducing anything. They are creating sculptural renditions/interpretations of 2d work.
2) Even if the images could be "licensed," who is medicom going to get the license from?
3) What's worse than the pieces themselves is the misleading way that Medicom is using Banksy's name to make it look like these are legit pieces endorsed by the artist. They are "official medicom" pieces but they are not official banksy pieces produced by medicom.
