When KAWS dropped his first all-wood BE@RBRICK a couple years back, he transcended the genre and created an incredible fine art edition that just happened to look a lot like a toy. Now, the release of his second version of the famous Medicom Be@r in conjunction with Japanese clothing maker NEXUS XII to celebrate the one year anniversary of ORIGINAL FAKE improves upon perfection. Fabricated by traditional Japanese furniture makers KARIMOKU, the new 400% figure features a deep textural woodgrain and a rich black finish (it just photographs brown) that makes the sculpture look as if it’s just been rescued from the ashes of an inferno. A collaborative Nexus XII x KAWS logo burned on the Be@r’s back and Karimoku’s insignia on the inner leg round out the phenomenal collectible which comes packaged in a beautiful black-on-black logo adorned presentation box. These little beauties drop at the end of the month and will set you back close to $500 if you can find one. Hunting season is officially open…
