The scene is reminiscent to launch events before the earthquake and tsunami in March. A week after its impromptu announcement, Japanese wooden furnishing company Karimoku, toy maker MEDICOM TOY, and Brooklyn-base artist KAWS will offer the much anticipated wooden KAWS Companion figure for sale. The release will take place tomorrow, May 28th, at OriginalFake flagship store in Aoyama, Tokyo. With only 100 units made, each numbered and signed by KAWS. Each will also be in a variation of appearance due to the minute difference in wood grain patterns, making each a truly one of one original. Due to the overwhelming demand, OriginalFake will conduct the sale base on raffle ticket system to be fair. Each figure is set for a price of JP ¥252,000, or around US $3,120.
