False Friends Reignited by Course Toys
When we first showed False Friends at Rotofugi Gallery in 2008, it was a landmark moment for us. Not only was it our first piece to introduce paw! as our first non-human character, but it was also our first set that really attempted to use vinyl figures as a form of story telling. The expression on noop’s face, the paw! suit he wears, and paw!’s proud and loyal stance all come together to tell a story of deception, arrogance, and misplaced trust.
We started our Ignited series in 2013 with a glow-in-the dark edition of Souls Gone Mad, and ever since then we have wanted to add an Ignited edition of False Friends to our private collection. But we knew we could not just keep a piece like this for ourselves. Our collectors love our glow-in-the-dark figures as much as we do, so we have decided to glow-in-the-dark editions of False Friends: Reignited and Reignited Monochrome. If you never got a chance to get your hands on this ill-fated duo, this is your one-time opportunity to do so.
Both editions come with a 12.5’’ paw!, a 13.5’’ noop, and a fabric paw! jumpsuit for noop to slip into. They stand together side-by-side as paw! enjoys the final joyous moments of a friendship that will not last.
noop and paw! will depart the elastomer and arrive in your world inside a color-printed gift box and embedded in black sponge. Keep an eye on noop: he might try to trick you.
Reignited finds noop in an icy-green suit matching paw!’s GID features, brazenly trying to trick the naïve creature into a trusting friendship. Limited to 345 pieces.
