TAKASHI MURAKAMI - X Complexcon – Mr Dob set of 2 - SIGNED 2016 / 2019
To celebrate the Complexcon 2016 event, Takashi Murakami teamed up with Bait and Bait's long term partner Switch on one of the famous character from Takashi' artwork - Mr Dob. The vinyl figures were made by Switch Collectibles and the printing by hand individually. The original color edition red/blue is limited to 750 and the gold edition is limited to only 250. These figures were available for pre-order at Complexcon and Bait's online store. They sold out immediately.
Mr Dob, the whimsical, sharp-toothed character is Murakami's first signature creation inspired by the anime (animated film) and manga (comic book) characters that have achieved cult status in Japanese youth culture. His name is a contraction of the Japanese slang expression "dobojite," or "why?" and it is literally spelled out in his facial features and appendages, ensuring we recognize him in spite of his ever-changing appearance.
Murakami signed a final batch in April 2019 and these figures came available through lottery for Japanese residents only. Both figures are hand signed and dated 2016 / 2019 on the bottom.
