So what's the 411 on these new Kaws toys. Are they still highly sought after and valuable like a few years ago? Or does open edition mean everyone that wants one, gets one and the prices have dropped? I'm not buying either way, just honestly curious since I haven't paid attention in about 3 years when I got rid of my Kaws stuff.

Thanks for the info. How long do they normally take to sell out these days? I guess I'm still used to the old days of Kaws where they'd be completely sold out in a matter of a couple of minutes.

yea im an old kaws head myself lol


the initial set of open editions in the original colors actually was a crap show from modern website crashes CC errors etc.. they had to close the website and manuall go through errored orders took them a few days to sort it out


after that MOMA and some international sites had it and again site crashing etc... but all sold out rather fast

MOMA had a restock recently and again crashing but sold out fast also in store here in NYC went fairly fast

this blush color was asia only release and sold out instantly

this is the first US release and seems to be readily available

Huh, interesting. So the original colors were Kaws as usual buying wise. So it still is like it used to be, minus this color.

If they're this easy to purchase, I would assume most flippers will get stuck with them.

Don't think it's worth getting extra to trade. He will make more than enough for everyone. People just don't get that it's open edition.

First time ever ordering from Kawsone. Expected a bloodbath but was pleasantly surprised at the ease. Glad he put these up! :D
