Private Sales - Takashi Murakami X Complexcon – Mr Dob (Set of 2) - 2016
To celebrate the Complexcon 2016 event in Long Beach, CA, 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 in the first day 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.
