    Don't know for sure, but judging by the missing tooth and skateboard in hand, I'd say probably a bang up from skating.

    This looks very nicely fabricated but aesthetically I think it looks fugly.

    don't dig it too much, and the price tag makes it out of reach.

    the most original (yet derivative) toy kaws has made since the pushead collab. thanks soriyama!
    it seems the only kaws pieces I like are collaborations with other artists. although I wouldn't mind a Chum for my birthday, which is Guy Fawkes day (just so you know).

    ...with a hammer and kill it with fire

    it'll be interesting to see how flipped this gets because its a rather large initial investment and to 4x the price probably won't attract many suckers....wait what am i saying, this is kaws, people will pay retarded money just because.

    This is probably the only kaws figure I have ever liked. It has a short circuit vibe and the vents on the back are cool. Shitty price tag though, is it die-cast?

    The robot idea is actually kind of cool, but the head just kills it for me. Way too goofy.

    I think if it looked more like the painting it would be a winner. The torso is too long up top and too short on the lower half. Also, the arms are just metal rods connected to elbow joints - if the elbow joint was integrated into the upper arm, and the shoulder joint integrated into the torso, like in the painting, this would be pretty killer. Also, shoulda done two-tone metal coloring.
    I really like the idea (love robots, Sorayama's work is, uh, interesting...), the fabrication looks excellent, and if gifted one I would be quite happy. But for $1K...I'd have to sell a lot of stuff I like. (Maybe this does come with a dog and skateboard though - not that that would make it worth $1K, but it'd be a bit easier to justify.)
    I had to make sure I knew who the Sorayama was in this collaboration - I don't think I've seen anything by him that hasn't been sexually suggestive!

    I would never buy one. Not my thing.
    But I'm real curious about the size.

    That's what she said. In all seriousness I've hear 13 inches.

    I was assuming on par with the original?
