    I think, if there was only one girl (with axe) - would be much better.
    I know about this art, but in vinyl it does not look so cool. IMHO. )

    Could one make a whole shelf of couples toys? The Jarvis wrestling elves come to mind. Any others?

    this is going to be so awesome next to my parra pierced, i agree with Honestcrooks that this is up there. Too bad the edition is 1000 ? but this will mean 1000 people can enjoy this figure !

    Where you took info about the quantity? This is a trusted source?

    1000 it is too many, this figure will be sold for a lower price on eBay.

    Ok, I see. Limited to 1000 is the same as unlimited. Very bad.

    only bad thing is that hardly any came to europe, where most of mcbess fans are.

    If you are talking about "unlimited", there are only 159 still available from the kidrobot.com shop... ;-) So apparently, this will be sold out pretty soon :-)

    1,000 is pretty limited for a big global release.

    The coarse mini omens were limited to 800 pieces, and they are already pretty hard to come by at a decent price.

    Anyway surely its about how much you love the design, not how limited/flippable the piece is?

    I'm a collector, I hunt for a collectible items. So limited edition has great importance for me, as for any collector I suppose. I like good designer toys, but good & rare designer toys I like much more. )

    So the perceived value of the piece is as important to you as the design?

    Its not an opinion, it was an honest question. I'm always interested to find out why people collect what they collect.

    I Agree it's pricey for a 1000 edition piece but then again we don't know how much of each KAWS figure is produced aswell, and people pay top dollar for that. Is that perceived as a non collectible then or is that different because everybody wants it ?

    Of course an edition is a relative value, and 1000 still limited. But as I know McBess not such famous artist. I don't understand where KR took the number of the edition. And I don't understand why KR made excitement around the figure. May be KR just tried to catch success wave of Dunny Evolved Series and Mermaid figure.

    Maybe they had to make a minimum of 1000 pieces to keep the piece affordable. It's a 2 piece, 10" statue with a extra prop and a whole lot of detail. I can imagine the production cost of this being a bit higher than let's say a 8" dunny.
    Anyhow, it's true that 1000 might be a bit on the high side but even if it was a ediion of 10.000, I would've bought one nonetheless. It's an amazing and affordable 3D form of his art.
    And McBess is a well known artist here in Europe. Unbelievable that they made what, only 50 (?) available here?

    I was just typing up a reply, but HonestCrooks said exactly what I was about to say in a much more concise way.

    So what he said :)

    I haven't been aware of McBess for long, but from what I've seen, I'm personally VERY impressed. Also, with all the new toys being released by McBess, popularity will increase quite quickly I think.
    Also, when an artist isn't 'hugely' known, advertising & flaunting a toy seems like the logical choice. That way, numerous non-fans see it, become fans, and thus increase the fan-base.
    Thus, i say, flaunt the hell out of new toys!
