michael gallery released.



The shoes is just a big disappointment for me. My friend in HK decided to help me line up at 12:00 PM on that day. When he got there all 106 queue is already hand out at 11 AM. That is 13 hours early before the official annouce sale time @ 1:06 AM. Less than 10% is ML fans...most are just Nike shoe flippers in HK pay people to line up. Now the shoe should worth about $6000-$10000 in HK to buy from filpper.

1st day at michael gallery released the 7 color NY FAT & Tatto set. Today...released the Wood NY FAT, yes..that one that come with the shoe. And, the Wood Tatto both figure come with a nice wood package and a extra Nike tee for the figure.

Kawsone.com


The Original Fake Companion print sold out in 15 mins, I think they have about 50 pcs for sale and the other 50 on sales at Original Fake store. Kaws sign and numbered them Price at $700 USD each and we can expect to see 2 more colorway soon.

I'm more interested in the 3-D than the 2-D...Figure will drop tomorrow at Original Fake.

Gardener meets Nike at Hong Kong.


Mid-night sale start at 1:06 AM.......The reason why 1:06 AM not 12:00 AM, is because we will see 106 Gardener. There are already more than 10 peoples on the line now.

Michael Lau TV interview (in Cantonese)

Here is another one but doesn't have any English sub-title tho..!

The interview is about his story and also why design Gardener. Also ask his fans why they like Michael Lau's works. Michael also mention all of the figures that he make, he create his own mold and also when produce a figure, he personally finish up the figure and coloring then give it to manufacture to produce. He never use other people hand on the sculpting and making the mold on figures.

Michael Lau - Skate Shoe Board.


The package of this pair of NIKE Dunk Low "Skate Shoe Board" is just sick. The shoe come with a 6" NY FAT. Available on the 24:00 on Sept 29-30 at Nike Shop in HK. $1999 HKD a pair.

Vancei - Anakin Skywalker.






He just make 20pcs of this Anakin Skywalker. That's it..~ Within the 20pcs...price changed 3 times and quality improved 3 times. New feature again added 3 times....For those that got the version 3..should be happy. He is not going to make anymore of the Anakin figure. He is a weird figure maker I ever know. And also a figure maker that got passion in his work. Can you believe he make every single thing for his figure..including the figure body and package.

Kennyswork - Copperhead-18


The purpose of this certificate for the Special version Copperhead-18 "DARK". It is a stand for the helmet and the bomb. Neat idea...to the figure certificate into a stand.

Vancei - his next stage challenge






Vancei is starting his next stage challenge, he already 2 version of that Anakin Skywalker figure. Each version there are something that improve. This time for the 3rd version, he is taking even further by making the light saber into metal. Just that light saber took him 2 week to made one. I guess the 3rd version will be very very limit again.

Dissected Kaws Companion


The figure was on display at the Heidi CHO gallery, NYC. The price for this to order at the gallery is $750 USD. And it will be ready to pick up next month. Crazy price for this piece with 1000 edition run. I doubt that will be the final price, I will buy if they cut the price at least half of that.
