New Takashi Murakami MR. DOB version 2 and Octopus for ComplexCon 2017? It wouldn’t surprise us at all as ComplexCon is only months away. Takashi Murakami fans and collectors should be drooling over these early WIP shots from Takashi Murakami Instagram.
Judging from the last years MR. DOB release at ComplexCon these two should go down a treat. Saying that we don’t officially know if these are for ComplexCon. Whatever the case is, stay tuned and get ready for new Takashi Murakami figures.
Two versions will be available at ComplexCon. The left version will be priced at $500, whereas the right will be priced at $750. We are hoping that the QA issues that were experienced on Mr DOB from 2016 are now resolved, especially for the new prices in 2017. They had to re-make the whole lot due to the level of issues that were found once they started to arrive at collectors’ homes.
ComplexCon 2017 NOV 4 – 5 LONG BEACH, CA
ComplexCon returns for its second annual festival and exhibition on November 4-5, 2017 in Long Beach, CA. Created to bring “the Internet to real life,” ComplexCon mixes concert performances, retail pop-up shops, video production studios featuring in-depth panels and conversations, art, food, brand activations, interactive technology and much more into a one-of-a-kind experience unlike any other festival in the world.
This years host committee has returning members Pharrell Williams and Takashi Murakami being joined by Off-White designer and founder, Virgil Abloh and Sarah Andelman, co-founder of Colette.
Launched in 2016 by Complex Networks and ReedPOP, the inaugural two-day event attracted over 35,000 fans, 200 exhibitors, 34 performances and 75 speakers to Long Beach, California. ComplexCon returns this year with more performances, art, retail, food and the expansion of the host committee, all global leaders and visionaries to lend their help curating the experiences.
As far as we know, these are only available at ComplexCon this weekend and will likely sell out. If there are leftovers, we’ll update you if they appear online.
