KAWS COMPANION BLUSH Edition Launches April 18th @ Yuz Museum in China
Since the release of the Open Edition of KAWS’ Companions and Flayed Companions, a new colorway edition has since entered the scene - The BLUSH Colorway, with both the Open Editions launching April 18th at Yuz Museum in China (where KAWS' "Where The End Starts" has since moved to, which I’ve yet to feature on this blog LOL), where apparently they will only ship domestically within China (*GASP*). ”Limited quantity will be available for grab(s) in the first release, only in yuzstore.” (Source).
I am uncertain if there will be an online store set-up by Yuz for the release, but there is a physical brick-mortar store to check out at 35, Fenggu Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai, China (How to get there).
UPDATED: Check out the above "in-package" pic (*cannot confirm authenticity of product) which shows darker "pink" hue(s) all around, and looking MUCH more attractive now, compared to the "Barbie-Pink", IMHO ... but maybe that's just me :p
For folks angling for a State-side and/or online release, @kaws had mentioned this; ”#OpenEdition will be available at kawsone.com but not for a little while.. Coming this Spring!”
So WAIT if you must, or sort out your mules ASAP, or trawl the usual online auction sites for your fix. No reveal thus far for “Suggested Retail Price”, but do take note that previous releases - made by Medicom Toy - were priced at 21,600 Yen (approx US$209 / SG$290) for the 280mm tall vinyl figure.
