It seems that KAWS mania is not only limited to the United States. KAWS’ latest vinyl toy, the Dissected Bearbrick, is a collaboration between Original Fake and Medicom.Â This Bearbrick is designed after Kaws’ famous “Dissected Companion.” Like the fans that waited in line to see the opening of Kaws’ latest show at Honor Fraser (covered), fans in Asia (Tokyo & Taiwan) were also willing toÂ camp out for a chance to purchase hisÂ rareÂ products.Â Last weekend,Â Taiwan’s premierÂ fashionÂ retailerÂ Invincible sold all three sizes of the Bearbrick toÂ Kaws’Â zealous but […]

Suilma Rodriguez sent us a nice video she took and edited of Yoskay Yamamoto’s Koibito’s release (covered) last month at Munky King. Since the release party, Yoskay has been busy preparing for his upcoming solo show in May. However, he still had time to work on some new customs of his Koibito figure… Pics after the jump.
Although the fashion line was released a while back, we only recently saw the amazing ads for “Broken Label” – a collaboration between Mark Ryden and the late Japanese designer Nagi Noda. This line was sold through Colette in Paris and featured Ryden’s well known imagery. Apparently, the dresses were one of Noda’s favorites and she must have known her time had come because she was said to have died wearing her “Mark Ryden dress, Chanel boots, and perfect make-up with Viktor & Rolf lace […]
Following up his sold out signing in LA of his latest art figure “Choegal,” David Choe has again teamed up with Giant Robot for another signing, this time in Manhattan. The signing will take place on January 3rd at Giant Robot NY. So if you are in the New York area, this may be your only chance to pick up a Choegal signed by the man himself. But as many learned from the LA line, get there early or go home empty handed. Choegal release […]
David Choe posted up some images on his blog that showed some of the creative process behind his Choegal figure that he recently released. He included a painting that Choegal was apparently based on as well as progress shots of the sculpt, various faces, etc…Â Check out the photo set after the jump.
The long awaited wooden Choegal figure from David Choe has been released. Limited to 1000 pieces and priced modestly at $45, it features mechanical parts, three facial expressions (happy, sad, angry), and comes with a mini comic book. These were produced and available here at Ningyoushi in conjunction with Upper Playground. We believe these are all hand-painted so no two are different, but not by Choe. For those interested, there is a release party at Giant Robot 2 on December 23 (6-8pm) with Choe present […]
Last night, we stopped by Munky King on Melrose to attend the release party for Yoskay Yamamoto’s (interviewed) Koibito figure.

There was also a raffle (one ticket per purchase) for an original painting and other prizes!Â Also for sale were various prints and custom koibitos… More after the jump.
