That was the smoothest purchase on kawsone.com ever, glad the production numbers were high so we could all get one easily. Flippers are now stuck with these thinking they are rare. :lol:

Did everyone else have to do captcha when checking out?

What did everyone pay for shipping?

I was charged about $37 for 2 to California, but at least we didn't get charged sales tax.

Really decent move by KAWS, happy for everyone who scored!

Can't get one though, as my country isn't in the list...so will be buying one from flippers on eBay, gotta wait a bit for them to understand how OPEN this edition is and lower their prices :)

I actually wish I held back ordering tbh because at this stage with the resell market being so flooded the chance to score one UNDER retail is looking very likely!

Sucks to be a reseller :badgrin: (lets call it karma for the IV release maybe?)

24+ hours later and he's still taking orders.
I wouldn't want to be holding doubles of this.
Will be fun to watch after market prices drop.
Hilarious.

Same packaging as other Open Edition releases and Kawsone are the same as the Yuz releases.

Scored a pair but up to date no conformation email was sent to my email address...is that weird and means it's cancelled? The note I got when processing was delivery by late July...

Also noticed they only allowed 1 pair per address...dunno this is true or just coincidence...

Hi everyone. It's my first time on this message board so please excuse me if I make any mistakes. I purchased a black BFF Plush from a reputable seller and need help with a legit check if anyone has the time. I also bought a tote bag but I don't know if they actually fake those. Anyways, I made an album on Imgur and can provide and additional pictures if needed. Thanks everyone.

And if this is the wrong place to post this please let me know the appropriate place to take this to. Thanks again! :D

If you missed the first batch than your order would be part of the 2nd batch, which is part of a restock in July.

If your order was successful, you should've gotten an email with an order # immediately after placing your order.

I would try hitting up the email address provided which they are quite unresponsive, but hey, better act then sitting worried right? The flayed version is sold out now so hope your order is indeed confirmed.

Best of luck mate.

Hey guys, new to the Kaws world. A day late and a dollar short as they say. Regardless I successfully order the blush companions (both types) should receive next week and I have in my possession a grey companion open edition. I'm not buying these for resale. I just find them badass and will have my office in my new place with some custom ways to display these bad boys.

I would like advice from you guys as to where to find more Kaws items, aside from Ebay. I'm still learning but I do want to collect a bunch of them.

Tons of fakes out there so be careful, especially on ebay. The forums right here, facebook groups and sometimes reddit have some older stuff for sale every now and again, but other than that yahoo japan auctions is probably the only other option as even paddle8 has been known to sell fakes.
