KAWS x BAPE Dissected Milos... IN HAND..!!
I'm not lucky with Kawsone. So when I saw the pre-order for the Black Dissected Milo at TOY QUBE, I had to pull the trigger. Although I was paying around $85 more, I had to lock it down. I resisted the urge to also pre-order the brown version and thought to myself I would try to score one at retail on Kawsone later. I was hedging my bets. I wasn't feeling the mono and didn't want to spend that much.
They went on sale at Kawsone and I was finally able to get the brown version in my cart, but had trouble checking out. I didn't panic and was patient and tried to re-load the page. After several frustrating attempts, somehow the toy gods smiled on me and put the order through. Based on what i've been told, I was smart to lock down the Black and lucky to get the brown.
These fuckers are expensive. Way more expensive than any production toy should be, but I really love them. One of my favorite toys right now. I've wanted this toy ever since the t-shirts came out last year. They are not tall, but chunky. 7 1/2 inches tall. Around 6 inches wide at the bones. Highly detailed in the guts and tendons. The head is huge. Like a big grapefruit. The proportions to the body are outlandish and perfect.
To me, this is the quintessential KAWS toy.
