KAWS Price Guide: UPDATE 2.0

Post by desized » Mon Aug 27, 2007 12:03 pm

UPDATE 2.0: 4/17/08 - I'm not as active on the forum as I once was, but saw that there seems to be some demand for an updated list. I revised the price guide to reflect the current market. With Kaws becoming more recognized in the fine art world and finally having a New York gallery representing him, I predict prices will continue to rise as his demand shifts from toy collectors to include an even larger audience of serious art collectors.

For those seeing this for the first time - you may like to read what I initially stated when i first posted this list "I put together an unofficial price guide of sorts for KAWS toy releases. I kept this limited to toys and decided not to include print releases, as that's more for the fine art thread. There may be a couple of things i left off. Everything has a range, as prices do tend to fluctuate. This is based largely off general consensus amongst other collectors I know, ebay sales over the past year, and KR message board sales. Where possible, i reflected the most current sale prices I am aware of. I am not claiming to be the official expert - just passing along some knowledge (unofficial for sure) from being an avid Kaws fan and collector who has everything on this list (minus the bronzies and astro). Anyway, I thought this could be useful to others, as i have been asked in the past."

I think it's cool and all that you took the time to do this but with so many daily postings this thread will be gone in a days. Your better off posting it on a website and linking it through your sig.

Any theories as to why the GID green goes for more than the GID blue? (And I agree that it does.) Do people just like it better?

A certain board member got a very good price on one of these auctions! Congratulations! It's still a lot of money...but that's the going price.

Well, it is just a guide...I thought some of the high estimates were about right - if not slightly too low!

All Bendys are editions of 500 I believe. The grey being the most sought-after. Price range for all of 'em is about $140 - $220

the blues had a bunch of Quality issues.. a lot of leaners... also, the blues were made because of the popularity of the GREENS, which sold out on kawsone in something like 5 or 10 minutes (unheard of at the time). the last animation on kawsone featured the GREENS too.
