Back in July 2012 there was a press release about a vinyl toy figurine of the late, great J-Dilla in the works. It was suppose to come out later in 2012 but it didn’t happen from what I know. According to Stones Throw Records forum:
Edit from ST Bot: from what we hear, this is not the completed figure, and the release date is not this year, but next. This will be a release from the J Dilla estate, not the foundation.
To celebrate the life of the legendary hip-hop producer J Dilla, the J Dilla Foundation is getting set to release a new vinyl figure of the man. Designed by Phil Young Song, the vinyl toy encapsulates the likeness of Dilla who’s equipped with a Detroit fitted, a donut chain, a pair of Dunks and his trusty MPC. The Dilla toy is to drop later this year, so stay tuned for news.
