The past few years has been really hard on Kaws’ toy collectors. The artist’s output has been so up and down lately, it’s been hard to call some of his releases designer art figures. In The Blot’s opinion they’ve been very uninspired, almost to the point of being lazy. With that being said, it hasn’t hurt sales one bit as his figures continue to sell out instantly upon release. While I haven’t been feeling a number of Kaws’ more recent releases, his new figure, Companion: Resting Place, is pretty freaking sweet!
The Blot’s a sucker for all things Dissected Companion and this figure looks incredibly well made. My only question is how tall (or long) this piece is. That’ll go a long way to justifying what I assume will be an extremely high price. Regardless, I feel like this figure at least takes Kaws back to a true designer art toy that will look incredible on anyone’s shelf.
Produced by Medicom Toy, the Companion: Resting Place by Kaws is approximately 9" tall, retails for $315, and goes on sale today, Friday, August 24th, at noon EST via the KAWSONE online store.
