I agree. I'd expect something that's $300 to be an edition of 150-200pcs. At 400pcs it should be around the $150-180 mark.. But the English hype overseas is heading in the same direction as Kaws hype, and almost every English release through JPS has been a sellout - so they're trying to make as much coin as possible. It's not a case of what it's worth anymore - more so how much they can stretch the price that people will pay. :doubt:

Finally got my Homer Grin today but it friggin came open! There was an "examined" stamp on in so I can only assume it was customs but don't they have X-ray machines for checking items? Pretty pissed it was open especially since the blind bag aspect of it is always fun. :?

Yeah me too it is really big and I was lucky enough to get the og version, something about the detail in the bone grin is great to me, not the biggest fan of the gid just for the detail loss. Which did you get?

Personally, I'm not really fond of his recent works...too much teeth variations and the design, especially the Simpsons, is so unoriginal...bart was ok but homer..? I was impressed with his work up to the teal-colored charlie...but all the recent works are mostly color/design variations. I love his work so hopefully he comes out with more affordable original stuffs in the future.

Yup I agree. A lot of the more recent grins also had no shading on the skull bone, which all the old variants use to have which I thought really made the toy.

In other news, he recently released some images of a new Southpark series of paintings, which also includes a grin figure based off cartman - I haven't wanted to by anything since the last Charlie Grin that was released until now. It looks really good!

Did anyone else have issues checking out for the Charlie Brown release? Did they update the checkout system?

Really can't miss this one this time!

They've always had issues with the checkout as its really only a super basic website - not really built to have more than like 20 people on at one time haha. Generally if it isn't working on your computer, try your mobile. If that doesn't work, try changing web browsers (safari, chrome or Firefox) - hope that helps

Do you know if the cape is only for the white one or not available at all?

Glad to hear that there's a slightly higher chance to snag one :)

Cape is the "secret" and guessing from past drops I would assume it is 5% ratio. And I'll even speculate that the black one will have the same ratios.

Should be a fun drop in Sept!

Hey everyone,

Looking to get my hands on another grail piece this month, but need to find the funds through some toy sales. I've got a set of 3 Barney Grins (Purple OG, grey, and green JPS) that I'd be happy to part with. Only chasing what I paid for them. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.
