I like the pusheads. The dissected ones are cool too. I'm starting to like his stuff more and more.

Have you seen them all in person?

The dissected is a lovely piece but the 5yl is just perfect. There is something about the proportions and simplicity of the sculpt. It has remained my favourite piece since I first saw one in 2004.

I have only seen 99's in photos and they look cute but a also a bit cheap!

pusheads (like a head of pus) are the zombie ones. I just got one a month ago and I love it.

Gid, black and green handpainted are getting an average of $180-$250.
Silver is $200-$300.
Bronzes - no idea but guessing about $800+

The bronzes are painted and not actually cast bronze.

i am not big fan of pusheads companions. i kno people like them but i think it is a pushead toy. i dont think kaws had anything to do with it just put "kaws" on box.

and bronze 5yl companion i think was only for kaws friends. only very little made. very very nice but no one really has. when i think companions i think of only 14 diffrnt companions. these are the ones. these are not my pics again. i find on the net. but i love companions so much. i kno many people dont like. but i think they are the best toy out there. :prayer:

The bronze dissected and bronze accomplice were available in 2 colors (dark or pearl). There were 10 of each color.

pearl dissected: http://forums.kidrobot.com/viewtopic.php?p=1231291&highlight=#1231291
dark bronze dissected: http://www.supertouchblog.com/2007/06/07/toyboxthe-new-bronze-age/

bronze accomplice http://www.skullbrain.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=10977&highlight=everlast

The bronzes were on "general release" but at least half were reserved for friends.
The remaining ones were grabbed by loyal fans.

Also, I only listed the og 4ft companion because that is the only one available to the public... so far [-o<

That would be nice... I will PM my address :tonqe:

I wish I had got at least one when they were cheaper but as prices have gone up I find it more difficult to part with cash for one. Chances are I will never own one but then it's only a toy so I will not lose sleep.

Not sure if the 5YL's need a friend. They would probably push him off the shelf for being a shortarse (that's where all the broken legs come from). I would have to get a set so they can look after each other.
