Despite the announcement that they would be shutting down their operations after seven years of successful business, celebrated street artist KAWS and his OriginalFake imprint have been steadily rolling out new Medicom figures throughout 2013. The latest debut arrives in the form of the recognizable “Passing Through” Companion figure. Offered up in two colorways – all-black and tonal grey – each somber character is seen perched with its head in its hands. The “Passing Through” Companion is something that KAWS has frequently returned to, having seen exposure most notably in the ongoing larger Companion statue traveling exhibition as seen in Atlanta’s former, “Down Time” installation.
Both of the characters in black and grey are now available directly from Wish. Orders can be placed by phone order by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2 or via email by sending a request to email@example.com. Retail is $425 USD.

In addition to unveiling a small range of KAWS OriginalFake collectibles today, Medicom Toy also debuts its latest collaboration project with Japan’s Special Product Design. Known for its oft-used motif of the well known Peanuts character, Snoopy, the latest “Black Peanuts” Snoopy iteration employs an all-black everything aesthetic while encompassing the nostalgic cartoon character in an astronaut helmet. Finished off with a set of tonal aviator goggles, a ruffled scarf and rotating arms, the Medicom x Special Product Design “Black Peanuts” Figurine is now available directly from Wish.
You can make your purchase in-store via our Moreland Ave. location or by phone at 404.880.0402 ext. #2, and by email by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
