Epidermis isn’t important if you’re made of plastic. In fact, it’s really just boring. The new non-collaborative toy release from KAWS and OriginalFake divides KAWS’ signature black and white “Companion” figure in a straight up half-sliced manner, leaving one side abstract black and white Mickey Mouse and the other side all internal organs and muscle tucked neatly into weird Mickey Mouse boot shoe. As opposed to KAWS and OriginalFake’s previous releases which have been standing figures, this piece entitled “Resting Place” aptly reclines beseechingly on the ground. If you want this figure, and want it before everyone else, that is, he will first be made available by lucky draw tickets which can be purchased starting 9:00 A.M., August 31 at the OriginalFake store in Aoyama, Tokyo.
