The newest vinyl toy by KAWS is a Dissected Companion at rest. It will be available tomorrow, Friday August 24th at 9AM PST/12 PM EST from KAWSONE online. If your computer crashes and you miss it, hop a flight to Tokyo, Japan for the OriginalFake store release on August 31st. Then, when the person sitting next to you gets up to use the lavatory, take his/her wallet! The KAWS Companion: Resting Place will set you back ￥25,200
or a cool ~ $321 USD $599 according to US retailers! Thanks to the commenter below for setting this straight: KAWSONE sold out the Dissected Companions for $315 plus shipping; the (SHAMEFUL) retailer flipper price mere hours later is $599. (I got that pricing in an email newsletter from a NY-based designer toy retailer; I’ll be promptly unsubscribing from their communications now.)
I don’t have anything particularly insightful to say about this piece, nor can I provide exclusive information you couldn’t otherwise find on HypeSnobMonsterBeast.com. Would I like to possess this seemingly deflated, dissected iconic piece of toy art? Yes, completely. For the others who can’t or won’t, click through for some dumb fun I had after that last unmemorable KAWS release coincided with a rather memorable cop meme.*
