Real? Fake? Soon to be released?
a real GID dissected would rule especially with different color GID guts
I had to post the first pic over on KR, just to get a laugh at all the little kiddies going crazy...
and I would also love a GID dissected, w/ said different color GID guts....
Yeah, I was thinking how that would have been possible.
Imagine if he redid the sculpt with removable innards like the anatomy models in biology class?
Then you could cast the innards in different coloured vinyl and insert or remove them.
If you're afraid of getting duped, just keep track of what's been released and you should have no problem, really.
Useless: posting the GID fakes over at KR just to watch the fallout was the smart play.
I would take a GID Dissected!!!
wow bring on the bootleggs!!! hopefully I can find em in chinatown for $10
Wouldn't there be a size difference if they were boots?
there would be if they casted it off a Dissected.
Honestly I love/hate bootlegs and think they are hilarious. I have a nice collection of some awful ones.
From the pictures the Stormtropper doesn't look that good, but the Dissected one looks great!
I want that dissected.
will trade good(rare) stuff for. Anybody who has one get in touch.
I want that nara piece next to it
Tonight on Shark Week (brought to you by Kaws)
Anyone know where these pictures originated? I love both of them!
there where some GID trooper on the bay a while ago
cant find any now though
Bootlegs of his sorta bootlegged character's seems fitting to me.
Agreed, bootleg crap is always fun. I actually wish these were just a tad crappier, but I like them more than the originals.
I liked what KAWS did when he started the originalfake store, making a homage of a bootleg of one of his own toys, (grey be@rbrick) and producing it as an official run.
you stole my joke
Having to pay the bills to get toys made can be hard, and because of that its really hard for me to condone booting vinyl on principle. You're basically coasting on the work and investment of other people to line your own pockets. Bootlegging characters with crappy/amazing new sculpts is another matter entirely, though, and one I can wholeheartedly condone.
That said... I want those bootlegged dissecteds. I want to buy them and paint them ridiculous colors and have a blast. That pearly one is TIGHT, and this coming from a guy who really wouldn't pay more than $20 for any Kaws toy besides maybe the KvP (I could possibly be talked into paying $45 or so for that although I would balk a bit).
i'd rather have a bootleg...i might actually be able to afford it.
it's a sticky subject, but if it's a boot of an out of print figure at a drastically reduced price... sure
Did I mention how bad I want this?
I will trade a regular dissected for this.
Ok I'm lying but I will trade some good shit for this.
Anybody actually seen one in person?
Watch those boots. Sometimes they look good in photos, but when they make them, they just chop the articulation apart. Most of the time the articulation is terrible, joints don't fit right- to the point where you can't even move them sometimes, you'll have gaps, there will be tears in the mushroom caps.
I've picked up boots for cheap just for fun and for reference, but never throw down big. You'll be nothing but disappointed- from my experience.
