A major downside to the popularity of OriginalFake designs is the overabundance of pirated and imitated goods out there. So there is always a great apprehension when an one-of-one OriginalFake merchandise appears, as in this Glow In The Dark Dissected COMPANION Figure by KAWS. The images originated from a collector in Shanghai, who claimed to have 1 of only 2 produced in the world, with the other in MEDICOM TOY‘s headquarter in Tokyo. This Dissected COMPANION underwent a full GITD treatment – the intact side on left emits a green glow while the exposed side on the right produced a eerie blue glow. But the question remains, since there is no way to verify or authenticate this particular figure, is it a real OriginalFake? Or just a superb pirated copy?

Vince, It really a lovely toy. I just curious how your friend know this toy is produced by test mould. I also want to know where in Shanghai can purchase similar toys.
