    the increase in fees probably won't choke much of their cash flow. runners are pretty cheap to hire.

    ^Most recent Kaws releases have been 'distributed' through other retailers.
    Just a handful seem to go through Kawsone, if they are released through the site at all...

    No black dissected bearbrick, although lots of mis-information and speculation...
    Looks like it's starting again - all I have heard is 'september release'.

    There are pre-orders for Bus stop sets on Toytokyo - are these being re-issued?

    Surely not!

    The Japanese retail price with the conversion rate right now would be over $200, so unless Kaws gives a discount if it goes on his site I doubt it would be less than that.

    The price is higher because of licensing fees that probably need to be paid to Disney. It makes sense to me.

    Kaws made a comment about how he wished it could be a run of 1,000. I'm assuming a license issue with Disney was at play. But I am hoping like other runs it is 500 for Japan and 500 for the US/everyone else.
