This coming Saturday, June 27th, the New York artist KAWS will release NO FUTURE COMPANION, a collaboration figure with Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama which was produced by Medicom Toy/Original Fake. The figure comes at the end of a three year process that started with Sorayama's painted interpretation of KAWS' iconic Companion figure in 2006. From there, KAWS and Medicom set forth with turning the image into a fully pose-able metal figure that comes on a removable stand. Check the jump for images of the KAWS x Hajime Sorayama NO FUTURE COMPANION as well as the original Sorayama illustration that was the base of the collaboration. $980, kawsone.com, sorayama.com
