A Guide to Spotting Fake KAWS by Hypebeast

With the release of the KAWS COMPANION OPEN EDITION / KAWS COMPANION ( FLAYED) OPEN EDITION waters have been moved! Not only for long time toy collectors but also for newcomers and hype seekers in general not to mention the flippers, it’s all in the game.

It’s no secret that there are tons of bootleg versions out there on the evil bay and all kinds of online business. It’s frequent seeing ‘legit checks’ on speciality online groups and rightfully so as there are many people out there willing to make a buck in any way possible (eufemism there).

  1. Hi..I just bought a Kaws Holiday Space black on Mercari. The item feels and looks legit but the box is missing the holographic sticker and the box does not look like the regular boxes that ive seen on unboxing videos on youtube. Also, the bottom of the feet have the Kaws “carved” out “signature”.
    How would I be able to verify for certain if it’s a bootleg or not?
