Rockin’ Jelly Bean as a 1/6th Scale Action Figure?!?

I remember when, in the late '90s/early 2000s, Medicom Toy released BAPE’s Nigo and UNKLE’s James Lavelle as 1/6th scale “Real Action Heroes” figures, especially the masked version of Lavelle that turned him into FUTURA’s Pointman character. As an UNKLE fan at the time, it didn't matter that my only point of reference for 12-inch tall action figures was vintage G.I. Joe pieces… these were fresh and tied into my interests at the time. I see these new “Rockin'Jelly Bean Artist Figure” pieces, especially the “White Condor Mask Version,” as a return to that aesthetic. Depicting amazing artist Rockin' Jelly Bean, these 1/6th scale pieces were made under the artist's supervision and represent the ultimate artist figure, which took four years to complete.
Produced by Hong Kong's HOW2WORK, each over 12-inch tall ABS plastic figure comes with a beautifully reproduced mask (including the metallic, glittery tones), a flocked beard, white suit, leather shoes, ruffled pink dress shirt, and even a ring on his ring finger! There are also a paint brush and palette, with alternate interchangeable hands to hold them. Limited to 200 pieces, these are available now for pre-order from RJB's EROSTIKA for ¥22,460 (approx. $200) apiece and will ship in April.
