AMBUSH®︎ Reveals Second Collaboration With 'Astro Boy'
After teasing heart-shaped sunglasses for the summer, Yoon Ahn‘s AMBUSH®︎ now reveals a new Astro Boy necklace charm as part of its “A BOY W/ LOVE” series in collaboration with BAIT. The necklaces will be released in limited quantities alongside a new japan-exclusive matte-black Astro Boy figurine which was first unveiled in chrome earlier this year.
The necklaces feature the beloved Atom character in his dynamic presentation pose, incorporating a mix of matte silver and gold finishing. An AMBUSH®︎ logo is printed on the back of the belt and a crystal heart is found on the left chest. The matte black Astroboy figure, in collaboration with cartoonist Osamu Tezuka‘s Tezuka Productions and BAIT, is found in a neet bright orange case. Arriving in the same stance as the necklaces, defining features include open-chest circuitry details with blue-tinted coils and a deep red heart.
“In a future where robots and humans coexist, ASTRO BOY’s human-like qualities highlight our relationship with technology. Can artificial intelligence be better at being human than humans themselves? Can technology make us better humans? As we approach this reality, AMBUSH® is looking toward the future with ASTRO BOY,” the label writes in a press release.
The Astro Boy figurines, sold for ¥264,000 JPY ($1,993 USD), are limited to 50 pieces while the necklaces priced at ¥27,500 JPY (approximately $207 USD) are limited to 300. Pieces will be on sale at AMBUSH® WORKSHOP, AMBUSH® WORKSHOP 2, and AMBUSH® UMEDA HANKYU. Take a look at the unboxing video below.
