To be honest, the eye is a bit sloppy. Also, the area around the intestine and yellow lung look like the color is off.
But, this is a tough call since the pic is taken with a flash which is throwing off the colors.

Pics in the daylight would be needed to better match the color.

The inner clam shell looks OK.

I recently sold my Milo dissected so I can only speak about my own. The paint is more crisp. The edges of the eye ball were near perfect, but not perfect. The eye iris was a perfect yellow dot. Hope it helps.

Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since I've been here. I was wondering if anyone had some knowledge as to the Kaws X Real skate decks from I think 2007. I started to do some research as I want to sell them but as I research online it seems there were various releases?

1. I have one thats blue on the back and says REAL, this has a tag and its numbered, also it says Real OG REMIX Project

2. The second one lime green and on the topic says Real Fake in like a fuchsia color and on the bottom it says Fake. I had them displayed Real / Fake for years one on top. I don't have any tags for the this one but it seems to be a different brand and it has a graphic on both sides.

Was wondering if anyone was familiar with how these were sold, also is there anything I need to know. I have seen some recently sold so I know the value but I want to advertise them correctly. thank you.

Introduction

Hello everyone, I am a 14 Year old Kaws Collector who has been collecting since the start of the year. I am in love with his art work and feel that the 'Toys' are an amazing 3D piece of art. Now from collecting I am sure that a lot of my collection is Legit however I am still worrying about the fakes getting better and better each year. I am hoping if any of you have something from my collection we could possibly compare due to me paying a lot of money I just want to be sure I have real Kaws Items. I have bought a lot of my collection through eBay or private sellers, they have all been so helpful however when spending this much on a collectors piece you just need to be safe.

Collection

Kaws Bearbrick 400% + 100% (Dissected, Red)
KAWS Companion Blush (Dissected)
Uniqlo x Kaws (Both Snoopy's)
KAWS Companion Blush
Kaws Chum (Clear)
Kaws BFF (Black)
Kaws BFF (Blue)

Legit Check

If anyone can just have a look at the following photos and reply to me it would be really appreciated. The first photo is the Kaws Bearbrick, if you can have a look I have provided a few photos, if you need more please reply. So far I have only found one mistake when comparing it to a photo provided by 'Paddle8'. The mistake that I have found is above the intestines, there is a small pink line coming through and there is a tiny black bit going under the pink instead of in the pink. Hopefully you can see this, however here are the photos. I have given a few quick previews however if you scroll to the bottom there are some links which make the images more clear and larger.

Note: They are a little bit angled due to them being on the chair, they are straight!

Hi Stone,

Welcome to the boards. Though there are a lot of bootlegged Kaws pieces on the market, the dissected Bearbricks aren't one of them. As there have been no reporting of any yet.

The pink line you're referring to could just be a printing error. But either way the pictures you've provided show an authentic piece.

Hey Pause,

Thanks for the fast and warming welcome. Yeah, I was searching for 'Fake Kaws Bearbricks' to compare them to mine however never stumbled across one. I also have the 'Kaws Chum Clear' Do you know any good places where I can find models to compare mine to? I understand with more rare Kaws pieces there are less comparisons.

Yeah, I am sure that the line is a printing error however just wanted to make sure and see what others would think. That was the only mistake I could personally find however I will keep checking around.

As saying before, with my 'Kaws Chum Clear' How can I check that its real I will post photos of it later however thanks for the fast reply, glad that you think its real because I think I got a great price for it.

Bearbrick 400% + 100% (Red) = 650

If you know, is that a good price for the two of them? The box of the big one is a little damaged and the small one is still in its baggy.

Thanks,
Stian

$650 for the 400% and 100% is a pretty good deal. Usually the 400% goes for more than that by itself.

As for the bootleg Chums, they're an easy one to spot. Usually they're only 8" tall, and the arms move at the shoulder. The authentic ones were cast in a bowl mold, which leaves a seam going around the whole figure, and a small hole in the elbow. It helps that each figure is individually numbered as well.

The clear Chums have twice the run size as the other colours (1000 vs. 500) so their price is usually lower than the rest.

You can post photos if you'd like, but if it's 13" tall, individually numbered, and has the clear bag with the black skull print on it, then you're most likely safe.

Are there any bootleg Kaws Choro Q??

I got one from ebay a few years back and it is missing a screw on the bottom...and the design of wheel is a bit different I think...the package print is sharp and has a hologram sticker though.

I'm hoping that these are taller than the last open editions. And comparing them to the those moonmen from the pharrell insta pic, I think they might be just a little taller. Also hoping they look a little less glossy in person. Either way, I'll likely purchase at least one of these, but my wife prefers the blue and I think I prefer the black.

Any news on any upcoming stateside gallery/museum shows in Kaws' near future?

I noticed their larger in size as well... looks like they could be 16" or close to? Hoping the actual release doesn't have a gloss finish like the sample pics but I think they will. I've always preferred the look of matte paint on KAWS figs.

The translation was from sketch to sculpture, then the plush, and now the figure based in the sculpture.
