Little by little, Bob Conge is revealing portions of the new Plaseebo piece that will be released at New York Comic Con 2014 (the Kaijumonster Booth #406). I think I see hands and teeth and maybe a hole for a skull's nose. But that's about it.
Bob Conge isn't letting on too much about what Plaseebo will be bringing to New York Comic Con. However, the above photo will be at the 2014 NYCC Kaijumonster Booth #406. And I'm assuming this hand is connected to a body somewhere...
Well...this one sold out quickly. Bob Conge posted up The Kawzik Night Gamer custom piece in the Plaseebo shop. It's a one of a kind mash-up vinyl custom of a re-sculpted Plaseebo Night Gamer head and a Kozik altered Kaws Companion body. The 14-inch tall piece had blue glass inset eyes and sold for $2,200.00. And only one of you got it.
