The box is on point but again lots of bootleggers got that down. However as mentioned above, I think this might be a very good replica.

If someone else knows for sure please inform.

Hey guys

Have added better pictures of the storm trooper

Have had it verified by a few guys on the Facebook buy sell group

Have done my own checks using the toysrevil blog

Seems legit to me. Seller is postive and willing to refund

Would love to get an opinion from someone who has had a trooper from release.

Thanks for all the help

I think it is authentic or now fakes are so good that it is impossible to distinguish between the original and a fake...

Hi All,

I have a bunch of KAWS x Hennessy (1L) bottles and need to make some room as I'm moving soon. I threw one up on eBay but I wanted to offer em here at a fair price for the KR/toy community... I've been on here lowkey for years so I'd like to send some goodwill to other collectors if I can. Looking to sell 3 or so, open to offers!

In all seriousness, the best care advice is to open the packages and enjoy the vinyl.

The vinyl needs open air to gas off otherwise they will leech oils from the vinyl ; and enjoy the toys that artists worked to produce.

So does anyone else think there is a new toy coming soon? He teased a sample of a figure(Clean Slate) with one of the Jordan reveals and no one is talking about it. I know it could be a sample for a large sculpture but the dimensions seemed perfect to match the Open Companions. There is also a smaller Clean Slate thats in a Dallas mall. He's also teased samples that turned out to be sculptures, but....

...doesn't anyone else thing it's weird that KAWSONE magically reopened and he even admitted it was a "test to see if the old site still works" or something like that. The site was completely resigned and didn't use the same interface as the Supreme site.

Complete speculation here and I'm just trying to connect the dots.

The Clean Slate figure you saw has been mentioned before. He's shown that off since Clean Slate was new still. It would be cool to see that come into production though. Maybe in time. And a test run of an old website could definitely hint at him using it more in the future. So here's to optimism! :partyman:

I wish the Kurfs didn't have a weird legal issue to stop them from being made
from SKET
"total disgrace, alot of artists have been screwed by mindstyle, this is a claim that can be backed up BIGTIME!. In fact we could write a book on it! 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"

The bootlegs look awesome. Would have been great to see the real thing made.

On another note, I just got my shipping note from MoMA! Looks like its just the Companion. Sounds like the dissected Companion won't ship till June or so.
