Because the news came to light on April 1st, few were suspicious at first of it being an elaborate April Fools’ hoax. No longer the case now as OriginalFake, KAWS, and Japan’s MEDICOM TOY get ready to launch the brown version of KAWS Companion “Passing Through” Vinyl Figure. In a coordinated release tomorrow, both OriginalFake flagship store in Aoyama, Tokyo and KAWS’ own online store will have the figure available. But because this might be the last OriginalFake merchandise before the brand shuts its door for good, expect plenty of pandemonium.
