Nike 706 is the cultural experience dedicated to sport, creativity and self expression. The venue used for the grand opening will be the same as the one used for the Air Force 1 25th Anniversary party in Beijing. Next for Nike 706 will be the Mr. Shoe Museum (Sample) show by Michael Lau which will take place from April 28th to May 30th.
2007 is already half way, seem like Michael is starting to take a full speed.
Nike Mr.Shoe museum show, X-LAUGH(6), TTF with MINDstyle, SDCC with MINDstyle...and his own 3300' season two. Let's wait and see what he have install for us.
From my pass experience Michael like surprise people. I guess it will happen on this X-Laugh(6) figures. And I do like the guessing game on what he will release.
From the X-Laugh(6) sketches that I saw in EASTTOUCH, there is a sketch with (??) on it. And there is a blurry background picture there as well. I notice there is a 7th (black) figure on the table. If my guess is correct, it will be X-LAUGH(7). The 7th figure and the fingercroxx Ape must be the secret figures..........!!!
Speculating is FUN....!!

The XLAUGH(6) is the cover story for the recent issue of EAST TOUCH magazine. It come with a full sheet sticker too. Seem like the set of figures is not a mini figures. The people favourite fingercross ape is the secret figure. Is good that they are not blind assortment to purchase the set.
The packageing for the figures is using a vacuum foam style...it is similar to the package of CC19 Junkie. XLarge will release XLAUGH(6) limited tees and caps for HK only.
Get ready for the XLAUGH 6. Find out more details in crazytoyz forum.

"Eric Kot X Bape Black Pig Astronaut 1/6 figure" manufactured by DRAGON back in 2003 and I believe this figure was released as a crossover with Bathing Ape as well.Honestly I didn't know anything about his figure until I read Tomm's Garden Toyz Book...."Power of Dark Toyz." Then I start searching for this black astronaut.
This figure is limited to 100 pcs world wide, each come with a numbered cert. signed by Eric Kot. and some accessories. Mine is 003/100. The figure also come with a photo log book by Eric Kok.
I'm happy that I finally got it. Big thanks to SUNG...!!
