After what seems like ages and ages, artist Yoshitomo Nara's Little Wanderer and Pup Cup figures along with the "Too Young to Die" ashtray will be back in stock from Cereal Art starting this month. Though it seems the two figures have increased slightly in price (I believe the original retail price on each was in the $100-$120 range, now $145 each), they had also been commanding pricier amounts on the second-hand market during the halt in their production.
I had posted about these items back in 2008 and am still as captivated as ever by how sweet and soft the designs are. Definitely among my favorite art toy designs ever!
