Seeing By KAWS Light-up Sculpture (5.6)



KAWS has collaborated once again with AllRightsReserved, the brand behind the recent SEEING/WATCHING collection releases, on an illuminating new sculpture.  SEEING by KAWS brings us a seated BFF with light-up LED eyes.  Limited to 250 s/n pieces, the sculpture (alloy, ceramic, LED, mixed media) itself is ~ 14.5” tall and includes a pedestal.  These will be available on Sunday (5.6) at 7 AM PDT via Dingdongtakuhaibin for $12,000 each.  KAWSONE will also offer these at a later date.

Matt Gondek x ToyQube – New Deconstructed Mouse (5.30)

Matt Gondek will release the 3rd and final edition of his Deconstructed Mouse—produced by ToyQube—exclusively at his Clean Break popup in NYC presented by Avenue Des Arts (5.30 – 6.3).   After the OG and the mono, this last edition lets it all go with  a trippy neon yellow-accented design. No word on pricing yet, but for reference the mono edition at his HK popup  retailed for $300. Beyond the new vinyl, the pop up will also feature wood prints, clothing and more.

JC Rivera x UVD Toys – Bear Champ Proto Approved


UVD Toys’ Bear Champ project with JC Rivera is moving along nicely.  JC has approved the prototype and so the next step is tooling.   The facial detail is really nice, champ really does look like a battle-tested fighter. Kudos to Karmieh Design on the sculpt. We’ll keep an eye out for updates including an anticipated Kickstarter campaign. Travis and Ben have done a great job curating toy projects and bringing the community together to get ‘em made.

Superplastic Reveals New Janky from McBess


As we get closer to the May 15th launch of Janky, Superplastic continues to tantalize us with additional design reveals.  The new  mono Janky design from McBess just might be our favorite so far – but then again we’re partial to the retro ‘toon aesthetic.  The dual-face concept is a nice touch.

Pre-orders at the booth include a bonus t-shirt.
