We've seen a series of Sanrio characters re-imagined by vinyl artists lately, such as Junko Mizuno's Chococat (reviewed) and Amanda Visell's Badtz Maru. We also got word that Tara McPherson was lending her touch to the line with a version of Hello Kitty called Magic Love. The figure is out, and thanks to our friends at Tenacious Toys, we got to unbox one recently. Hit the jump for the video, where I satisfy my need to sniff every new figure fresh out of the box.
If you want to pick one up, these retail for $39.95 and are for sale through Kidrobot. Tenacious Toys is sold out of them already, but they still have Chococat and Badtz Maru in stock, if you want to pick up the other members of this fine family!
