While the official Chinese New Year isn’t until February 12, StockX is giving you a reason to start celebrating now, with exclusive early access to a limited edition collectible from Mattel Creations™ and 88rising.
Born out of Chinese myth and legend, the story of the Lunar New Year has been passed down for generations. The Jade Emperor, ruler of the heavens, invited every animal to compete in a grand race for his birthday, with the first 12 animals to finish his course earning a place in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. In honor of the 2021 Lunar New Year, the hybrid record-label-slash-creative-collective 88rising and Mattel Creations have partnered to create an exclusive collection celebrating the animal that finished the race second: the kind, humble, and mighty Ox (who definitely should not have given a ride to the Rat).
The collection features a commemorative Lunar New Year 88rising x FIGURE8™ t-shirt honoring all the years of the mighty OX and, most importantly, a special FIGURE8™ collectible designed specifically for this momentous occasion. FIGURE8 is a new platform that elevates Mattel’s classic toys. In this case the Magic 8 Ball. Inspired by the pageantry around the holiday, this “Year of the Ox” FIGURE8 collectible celebrates prosperity and good fortune for all — allowing seekers to find the answers to their most pressing questions. The design of the 8 ball features cloud details in the shape of horns and tail, not only paying homage to 88rising’s “Head in the Clouds”, but also to the cultural significance that the ox symbolizes. Wishing you good fortune and prosperity in the New Year!
The full collection officially releases on February 12, 2020 but for DropX, we’re getting an early first release.
