9. MTV Moonman

To celebrate their first Video Music Awards ceremony in Brooklyn at the brand new Barclays Center, MTV called on KAWS to redesign the 2013 Moonman trophy for award winners. Not wanting to completely reinvent the iconic MTV figure, KAWS decided to keep aspects of the original Moonman for his reinterpreted version while also including the signature skull-and-crossbones head and cartoon gloves of “Companion”. The KAWS Moonman was cast in a gunmetal finish, and about 60 were made, so only some artists at the awards show were lucky enough to walk away with the limited edition trophy.
