Snopp Dogg x Kid Robot? Yep. The rap icon and the toy company have partnered for an exclusive, limited edition Snoop Dogg art toy aka action figure.
Kidrobot has broken out the gin and juice and resurrected Snoop Dogg's classic, instantly recognizable, 1993 look in 7-inch form, laid back with braids, shades and accessory blunt. His mind is on his money and his money is on his mind, yo!
The figure is now available at Kidrobot stores and at Kidrobot.com.
The design process of creating this exclusive art toy was through a fluid and close collaborative effort between Snoop and the Kidrobot team. Duh! Snoop toys must have HIS input! Anything else would be unacceptable on ALL levels.
A "high" focus was placed on the "roots" of Snoop's emergence in the hip-hop world in the early '90s. Kidrobot expertly replicated Snoop's singular characteristics that have made him a pop culture phenomenon that is constantly redefining cool. From the braids to the shell toes and Locs, the aim was to pay homage to Snoop's iconic 1993 look, while incorporating elements of his newer elevated lifestyle as well.
Mission accomplished, IOO. (In our opinion...)
"The collaboration between Snoop and Kidrobot was a very special opportunity to produce a piece that is both progressive and nostalgic at the same time," said Galen McKamy, Creative Director Kidrobot. "Everyone knows and understands the impact that Snoop has had on hip-hop and culture. We work best with projects that have a story behind the end result. Creating this figure, which coincides with the 20th Anniversary of Snoop Dogg's debut album Doggystyle, gives it that exclusive rareness that Kidrobot is known for. There are numerous details that we worked closely with Snoop and his team on that signify the man through the toy. We are ecstatic about this release and the partnership."
"I love my new Snoop Dogg 4/20 figure I made with my homies at Kidrobot," said Snoop Dogg. "This toy is a throwback to the original days of Snoop for all the fans."
As you can see from the pic, Snoop of yore is captured, beautifully, in doll form.
Anyone plan to nab one of the dolls? We want one for our desks!
