SUPRISE DROP just happened at FLABSLAB and a possible big FUCKYOULAH if you miss this special edition Boy Nigo Had It, Junior, HA. Like a Thursday SUPREME drop, it could go in a flash.
We decided to have fun with some leftover resin and made a few pieces of the figure that is part of the Nigo Had It Junior set. The little boy has a red bellyband that reads “Fuckyoulah”. – FLABSLAB
Heres a little background story on the inspiration behind this piece.
“The actual piece shown in the Sotheby’s catalog was Lot 22 in the NIGO Only Lives Twice auction in Oct 2014. We saw this as the example of the Nigo’s brilliance. Of being able to put things together and creating something new. The Astroboy without the Jean Prouve Marcoule bench would just have been Astroboy. Putting the 2 together as 1 piece gave it a new meaning. The piece went for HKD 1.3mil or about USD 165,000.”
“We figured that since we’ll never be able to own the original, we might as well make a smaller version to make a statement about what the man used to have but had to sell almost everything he owned. So here we go, presenting “Nigo Had It”
Do note that because every piece is handmade, it is different with its own imperfections. The figure is about 8″ tall and does not come with the bench. What you see is what you get.
