Kaws x Star Wars Storm Trooper Vinyl Figure

How awesome is this figure? Kaws kills it with his newest Star Wars collaboration produced by Medicom Toy. In fact, the Kaws Storm Trooper figure is so great that it almost makes me wish I had purchased the Kaws Darth Vader figure when I had the chance last year. Seeing the Kaws Vader figure in person almost convinced me I had to have it, but there was something about the figure’s $700 price tag on the secondary market that kept me from pulling the trigger.

The new Kaws x Star Wars figure will be released on September 27, 2008 exclusively at the OriginalFake store in Japan (meaning no online sales). The store will hold a lottery for the opportunity to purchase the limited edition figure and you must be 15 years or older to even qualify for the lottery.

While the figure’s price and run size is currently unknown, this figure will sell out immediately and should fetch a pretty penny on the secondary market. It’s too bad really, because I would love to add one of these awesome figures by the legendary street artist Kaws to The Blot’s vinyl collection.
