Blue BFF has been shipped, expected delivery November 3. If I play my cards right and get a little lucky, I will have a new KAWS piece and a new iPhone X on the same day :D

Good Lord- both Kawsone and Moma are taking their sweet, sweet time getting these out. By the time my Moma order arrives, it'll have been two weeks and change since the release. Luckily, my Black is supposed to show up tomorrow, but I’m more excited for the blue.

the BFFs were released on October 18th. Nine days is NOT two weeks and change since they were released.

my moma blue was delivered today.

the BFFs were released on October 18th. As of writing this, today is October 27th, that's NINE days from ordering it to having it in my hand. Nine days is NOT two weeks and change since they were released.
not everyone is as lucky as you... i ordered a blue bff from moma right when it went up (around 6:30am pst) and mine has not even shipped yet... in fact i got an apology email today stating that they are overwhemed by all the orders and it will still take a few more days before they go out.

i did receive the black one from kawsone today though.

That’s why I said, “by the time my Moma order arrives, it’ll have been two weeks and change.” My order is showing an expected delivery date in November.

Hi guys!

I started to look a bit closer to my Kaws companions open edition 2016, full body black and flayed and I think I see a slightly difference in the yellow in the eye/x color between the two. The flayed one is slightly darker.

Both was bought in unopened boxes from UK with normal prices.

What's do you guys think?


Update 2017-01-06
I added som pictures - so please share your thoughts

^ Presumably, Medicom can produce as many subsequent batches of these - I'm expecting they will get re-stocked at some point, or else they'd take the images off the MOMA site...

...but will it return?

If these have genuinely sold out, and the production numbers run into thousands, each of these figures has grossed well over a million dollars... wow

are they bootlegs in the sense that they are bad copies that are sold as the really thing? Or are they exact same pieces produced at the same factory that either "fell off the back of a truck" or acquired through a backdoor?

A question for those that own the Kaws Dissected Milos...


Has anyone's Milo has tipped over to the side cause the ear-bone side is heavier?? Mine has not, but I noticed that it tends to lean more to the side with ear-bone..so I'm worried a bit.

Thanks!

All of the kaws x Uniqlo shirts (original run, first peanuts run and this run) sold in the US were standard US sizing. The only time they had Japanese sizing of the kaws shirts sold in the US was when the original run (non peanuts) was restocked on the website with Japanese stock and they were labeled as such.

Mine hasn't tipped but I've always noticed gravity pulling at the side with the bones. A "Lean" is common in KAWS dissected works, especially after years of being displayed.
