We are excited to be teaming up with ChrisRWK & Strange Cat Toys to launch a new collaborative project! The Kid in Cat Costume is a 5" vinyl figure depicting one of Chris' earliest characters. This classic design has shown up in his original work over the past 20 years and is a known favorite amongst fans. The OG Gray edition is limited to 100 pieces world wide and will be available for $75 each while supplies last. The release takes place on January 16th at 12pm EST and will only be available from Strange Cat Toys! Good luck snatching one of these for your collection!
We talked to Chris about the design and this is what he had to say!
"Before the robot there was “the kid in a cat costume”. Back in the 90’s I would draw a lot of animal characters and kids in animal costumes. The one I drew and painted the most was “the kid in a cat costume”. Well that’s what everyone called him. He never had a name. Just the obvious description. Over the years he would pop in and out of my work. In most recent years I would revisit the idea more and more.
It’s incredible to see him in 3D form. It’s truly humbling to have my first vinyl toy out. Especially with 2 of the best toy companies out there, Strangecat toys and UVD toys."
