A few days ago, the Hajime Soroyama x Kaws No Future Companion released quietly on kawsone.com, and sold out within minutes. If you’ve been looking to get yourself one of the figures limited to only 500, Parisian-retailer, Colette just received a couple today. However (like all things at Colette), the price tag is much heftier than the $980 it was going for on kawsone.com. It will put you back a cool $1500.

The musical brain behind Rage Against The Machine, Tom Morello along with Boots Riley (The Coup repper) = Street Sweeper Social Club, which is a combination of guitar-funk and hip-hop. Too bad that ‘Clap For The Killers’ wasn’t the first video. It’s my favourite off the album. Directed by Matthew Stawski.
