This project has the Japanese sneaker outlet looking to add some color into their collection with a custom “Atmosphere” splatter pattern. This lightweight shell has a vivid color scheme that is also able to be packed into itself for easy carry, and the occasional travel pillow.
Marvel x Medicom – Deadpool is the ex-agent with the wry and witty sense of humor, while Cyclops is the polar opposite with the militaristic view on leadership. These two Marvel characters are worlds apart, but not this time as Medicom chooses them to be the latest Bearbrick. The leader of the X-Men is dressed in the traditional blue and yellow uniform, and Mr. Wade Wilson appears in his classic red and black ninja suit. Look for the collectible vinyl toys to be available in the 100% and 400% size.
