Can you tell me if you this think 5YL is legit? I noticed that the colors are different than the Open Companion on the right.

No Kaws expert here but those colors differ for sure.. I guess we all know vinyl reacts to environment and such but I noticed the eyes differ as well, one seems white and other yellow ( not sure that can be a clue but worth checking ). From what I learn the replicas feel softer and you should look for imperfections, also did you get it from reputable seller?
There is a thread dedicated to replicas witch might be helpful to move post or compare.viewtopic.php?f=9&t=207873
Good luck and keep it real ;p.

:goodman: try getting them shipped outside of US. price x 2 for the Moma one... Kawsone pricing is fair considering shipping and customs but still pricey

Hi, so I opened my brown small lie because I installed a shelve where I'm going to place some figures and my figure doesn't stand completely straight, the sole of the figure has yellowish borders and there's many imperfections for a 200€ figurine, I'm really sad, contacted the store to see what are my options :cry:

If you bought it online or at a store front they should at the very least swap it out for you ....considering that they have others in Stock

Yes, they sent me another figure, this one is better but still has little imperfections though(a bit of brown paint on the white glove and some spots where paint is not perfect), it seems that QC is not that great for a 200€ vinyl toy though.

just purchased a gray passing through and a gray resting place online. both came with original boxes w decal as well as original fedex shipping boxes from kaws studio. I have a black on of each and they both sit perfectly. when I received these ones, neither sits flat. please see pictures. has anyone else ever run into or heard of anyone having this issue?

eBay + combine it with their 15-20% promos.. Scored the BBF (black & blue) for $180-ish/each out of pocket. Even scored a Small Lie for $125 last month too. Deals to be had for those wanting to build a collection. :rock:

That was totally unexpected. No hints of a drop of this magnitude at all. Totally missed the boat.
Disappointed I wasn't able to get an entry in.
However, also relieved I didn't get an entry in.
If I did win I don't know how I could pay for it.
How much are human kidneys nowadays on the black market?
Happy to have the wooden companion from a few years ago. Hard to believe that ONLY cost 3000.
