I want to buy this for my wife.
just stunning, I love the sculpt.
no, sold worldwide. plenty to go around.
and if they sell well maybe even more.
looks more like a reseller heaven now.
the increase in fees probably won't choke much of their cash flow. runners are pretty cheap to hire.
I hope so...I would like to pick them up, but won't pay crazy KAWS after market prices.
i think kawsone.com should have it for sale, but dont know when.
^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'.
But I wanna buy this for me

Also look at the Chum hands in the background
Kaws Original Fake Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket Pre-Order ( Pre orders sold out)
https://www.toytokyo.com/shopping/index ... t_id/10643
Price would be closer to $200 if it goes on kawsone.com
pre-order is up at the moment:

Thanks for the info, ordered 1
It's into 'inventory check' mode now, but it looks like the price went up to $299. Fuck that!
Its a crazy retail price for a Kaws if you compare with all his other releases. Sux!
There are pre-orders for Bus stop sets on Toytokyo - are these being re-issued?
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.
didnt know if any of you SBers would be into this, but i just got an email about it.... Its the Kaws Pinocchio T shirt. white on black and vice versa!
for some reasons, girls love this kaws pinocchio figure..
my gf who hasnt been pleased with my purchases, actually agreed to me gettin this pinocchio set, and she wanted a set for herself too!
up for sale at Toyqube again. this time $349... fuck that noise.
might as well be an ebay item. saw a few starting at that price.
Fuck the What? Is ToyQube the only other company selling these besides KAWS? I haven't seen anyone else carrying them,,,,what's the deal?
3 drops (2 x pre-orders & 1 when they got 'em in stock) with an $$$ increase each time . . . fuckin' douche move!
