To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising, hip-hop pioneers De La Soul teamed up with Kidrobot to create this limited edition set of 3" figures. Each figure comes with individual accessories and the set comes in futuristic space travel boxes, symbolizing De La’s mission to take hip-hop to the stratosphere and beyond. The 3-pack will retail for $50 and will hit select retailers on March 18th, 2010.
While I am a huge fan of the album (possibly the greatest hip-hop album of all time), I'm not really getting these figures. They don't really look anything like the band members or the album cover. If you'd show these to a De La Soul fan...they probably wouldn't equate these to being De La Soul related.
