Munky King x kaNO – The Messenger Ice Edition

Munky King has just released The Messenger Ice Edition resin figure (edition of 25, 6.5”)  on their web shop for $200.  This newest edition of the Colin Kapernick-inspired figure designed by kaNO is a low-run, premium resin edition featuring a beautiful clear frosted finish. The Ice Edition continues efforts to raise awareness and address the scourge of police brutality towards people of color, an injustice which inspired the ex-NFL Quarterback’s poignant protest of taking a knee during the national anthem prior to games.  I had a chance to see this edition up close on the episode of Toy Geeks Behind the Counter featuring MK-founder Patrick Lam and am happy to say photos hardly do it justice.  In person, it’s amazing.

Matt Gondek x Avenue de Arts x 3DRetro -- ‘Aggression’ Art Toy Aims for Fall 2018

Whoa.  Matt Gondek’s upcoming Aggression vinyl art toy will bring the wicked vision of his original painting (2018) of the same into glorious 3D.  In development with Avenue de Arts and 3DRetro who is handling production, the figure features a gnarly sculpt with a grizzled, drippy, ‘deconstructed’ Martian ready to slay with his battered blaster. This shot of the proto has us setup for an agonizing wait for the anticipated Fall ‘18 drop. If you can’t wait, you could scour the secondary market for his limited-edition tees featuring the Aggression image in red+gray which were available exclusively at his recent Clean Break pop-up in NYC.

Tomorrow’s the day.  KAWS will release three editions of his new Together vinyl  on Tuesday (6.12) at 9AM PDT via KAWSONE.  While pricing has yet to be announced, we expect the piece which features two hugging Companions to be fairly expensive(how’s that for vague…). Together will be available in black, grey, and brown editions.
