June 2012 - Announcing the latest addition to the 5" Mini Qee Artist Line - The Yakuza Series by Fakir.
Toy2R USA makes every effort to scour the globe to find new artists and fresh designs to work with and when we found a set of original custom Mini Qees by French artist, Fakir, it was a no-brainer that they should be made into production pieces. Originally the artist created a similar design using the 9 inch Bunee Qee, but creating a collection using the Mini Qee platform seemed the best way to explore the variations of Fakir's Yakuza theme.
Scheduled to be released in August with an SRP of $28.00 each, expect to see a few different versions as the Yakuza take over the world.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Young Parisian artist, Fakir became known designer toy lovers with its customs figurines perfectly executed. He is also behind the Rabbit Qbiq he himself has self-produced.
Illustrator, character designer, artist and toymaker, he captures in his work all the energy of its visual cues to give us an anthology inspired by exalted characters. Treated with a very pure and graphic influences from the cartoon, graffiti, manga or tattoo, Fakir of the universe is incredibly cool and a Master surprising. http://www.fakirdesign.com/
