I don't have a grudge cause my situation has been done n gone, but i know of many other HUNGRY people wanting to produce work who will never see what they so rightly deserve, payment and samples, and whatever mindstyle decides to do with your art...you will have no say or control"

If you mean open editions and the original run of limited editions, then besides the already stated unlimited/limited factor the open editions are also a good bit smaller. Also like you said open editions have no box, just the clamshell in a wrapper. The open editions will most likely have more drops.

People talk too much. I don't believe for a second that red companion is real.

Has ANYONE seen a picture with a someone holding one of these in their hand? NO.

Only things coming outta Shanghai right now are shirts and Jordans.

Don't feed the hype machine! :axe:

Even if it isn't legit, I'm willing to bet that there are already fake ones in production because of this rumor. :lol:

Are there known bootlegs of the open edition kaws companion?

I won a full set of companions for a good price and am a bit skeptical.

No bootlegs yet. Only 8 and 16 inch. The 8 inchers are really bad so you'll be able to tell they are fake.

I'm ok with missing the shoes, would like the hoodie though. I have a pair of the DCxKAWS, and only wear them when conditions are perfect as to not mess them up too bad. Those also only ran me ~$100. Just not sure I could wear $350 sneakers, and at that point I'd just be trying to score them to flip them which isn't my bag.

Have they been and gone from Kawsone yet? The site was crashed until around 15 mins ago. I'm hoping to cull bots.

^^ Don't think so. Not sure why the site would have been overloaded already either. As said though, I'm clueless as to this drop.

Also I've seen speculation that the graphic on Kawsone gives a clue to the drop time, any thoughts?

no. the graphic on the homepage is a message to those who found the backdoor sneaker links to his store on google and tried buying them. he's telling those people they can't use the backdoor.

look at the source code for the page:

<!-- STOPPED AT THE BACK DOOR -->

it has nothing to do with a clue about the drop time.
