Check out this J Dilla toy Detroit artist Sintex worked on



[Updated 5:33 p.m. Feb. 10, 2015: This post originally stated that Sintex designed the toy. The toy's packaging says it was “conceived and rendered by Sintex; designed and sculpted by P2PL.” Learn more about how the toy came to fruition here.]

While we're on the topic of Dilla Weekend, we should mention that when we interviewed the Detroit artist Sintex he showed us this licensed J Dilla toy he helped design along with the South Korean-based artist Philip Young Song. The limited edition figurine sold out in a pre-sale, but website Rappcats says more will be available once they are released later this month (subscribe to their newsletter if you're interested in snagging one).

Learn more about the toy over at Rappcats. We dig the attention to detail!

Sintex also told us that a Danny Brown toy is also in the works — you can check it out on his website.
