Didn't you have a full Kaws collection of everything back in the day?? Good luck :rock:

Does anyone know the best and most reliable place to auction off some kaws prints? I'm looking to sell some prints and I would obviously like the most active bidding possible. Any suggestions or experience from past auctions?

Is there any word on another wave of the MOMA Open Edition companion series? I was abroad when this last release dropped.

Just got my brown/og open edition set. They look great but the companion one does not stand flat. It looks like one leg is about 1/8 inch longer than the other. Anyone else seen that?

You can lean towards legit but I know with 100% certainty that there are FAKE/KNOCKOFF kaws blush open edition figures on eBay. There's at least one listed right now by someone in china for about $110-115.

Stay away from ANY "open edition" companions being sold on eBay, particularly from Asia sellers, with prices that are too good to be true

I have seen fake red blush ones but they are all easy to spot because they come in an actual box similar to the limited edition kaws figures rather than the plastic bag. They are also 16 inches tall rather than 10.3.

Easy to tell if they post the size or show a photo of the packaging... not all have.

You can try listing them right here in the sales forum. I've seen a number of people list high end prints over the years with success.

I am trying to get top dollar for these to afford a major life payment I have coming up and I am not looking to give the "boardie hookup" that some people justifiably come to expect. I guess it's still worth a shot though, I plan on posting these prints for sale in the next month or so. Thank you!

When it comes to Kaws, board members pay top dollar.

Can't say the same for other vinyl, as I myself have had trouble getting rid of some high end kidrobot stuff over the past few months.

Where The End Starts is a sharp looking book. Really dig the different front/back/binding.

The weight, plastic boxing, plastic covering, holographic sticker, and details on the toy and cover match up afaik but just want to make sure before I close out the two sales.

I'm about to move to my own flat and found some stuff that I forgot I had. So, what's the point of keeping them? One of the pieces is the Kaws "Original Fake" poster from his 2003 Exhibition at the BAPE Gallery in Japan. I've been able to gather little information about it online. I got it from Yahoo! JP Auctions in 2005, so I'm pretty sure its real (it was before fakes arrived) and I've read it was limited to 100 or 300 depending on the source... Maybe you guys could tell me more.

Check out Toy Tokyo, they have a ton of Kaws stuff, some for sale and some not. Also, Moma store might have restock on the OE companions if you're lucky.

ToyTokyo was pretty disappointing (compared to my last visit 9 years ago).

Probably better off finding spots to just look. Anything for sale is going to be stupidly priced anyway, no?

hey guys, looking to grab this dissected milo from a fellow collector. seems like it could be legit, but i don't have any milos in my kaws collection to compare it to. any other opinions? is there anything i should be looking for in a bootleg, aside from foot stamp + packaging/hologram?

would love a second opinion if there are any watch outs. thanks.

Get inner she'll pics, close up pics of the guts and areas where paint color overlaps (inspect for overspray).

here are the pics i've been given of the shell, and dissected side.
any red flags? the colour looks a little sloppy around the eye, but again with no milos in my collection i have nothing to compare it to, though some of my companions from kawsone look like this where the ankles meet the shoes.

thanks for your help, guys.
