The wooden editions of KAWS figures are stunning and as soon as you see this Wooden Companion produced by Medicom in collaboration with furniture house Karimoku, the instant reaction is: 'I WANT ONE!' However, you then hear that it's pricetag is in the $3,000 region which then produces the reaction of: 'hmmm.... i can live without it i guess'. Or at least it did with me. More info....

Only 100 of these bad boys will be produced, standing just 30cm tall all signed and numbered by the artist. A real nice figure to be sure but after the fiasco of the multiple Spongebob prints and their ever increasing pricetags i can't help but feel that any Kaws purchase these days is an absolute kick in the teeth price wise. Yeah its a wicked figure but $3k for a 30cm tall figure? thats more than a tad extreme. If you got the spare cash to splash then i applaud you, it'll be a real highlight for any collection (if you can get in there before Pharrell sweeps in and buys one for each of his homes) -

plus i can't help but feel that on KAWS current form there will be a dark wood version in a months time - and that one will of course be $4,000. #robdogginbastards

    It seemed like KAWS was done with vinyl toys, and I don't think this really changes that, personally. But either way, you can snag six "new" Companions from Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth's online shop.
