Known for his artistry on the court, rookie sensation Jeremy Lin has taken the world by storm, inspiring millions with his story and his brilliant level of play. Created by Seattle sculptor Mike Leavitt and sold exclusively by Jailbreak Collective, the Jeremy Lin Action Figure commemorates Lin’s ascension to heroism by mashing Lin with the ‘80s G.I. Joe “Storm Shadow” character. It’s a hand-sculpted, one-of-a-kind piece priced at $2,500, and is the newest addition to Leavitt’s “Art Army” series, which sold out in 2011 at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York.
The 9” tall Lin figure is made from polymer clay (Fimo & Sculpey), elastic cord, stryofoam & steel armatures. It has nine moving parts, including removable accessories (a ‘regulation’ basketball and a birch wood ball & chain) and comes with a bamboo wood base with steel foot pegs for a sleek display option. Hand-painted details display the Taiwanese flag’s sun (w/ basketball) logo and “Lin Seventeen” (on his back).
