    I like this, I'm just hoping when the arms are lowered it looks ok.

    Rich.
    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess this is going to be in line with the Pinocchio / 400% Bearbrick lineup size.
    Based on Dril's top post, $231 makes sense at retail for this size. I believe the recently released 5YL sized resting place companion was the 5YL size and carried a heftier price tag.

    It really is hard to say. I was judging it off this shot but it just could be the composition.

    I think it's coming in a little shorter than the 5YL. And Resting Piece was the same size as the 5YL, but the price was double that of the 5YL - I think. I actually don't remember what Resting Piece cost, but the 5YL was $180. His prices have certainly gone way up recently.
    And unfortunately seeing Astro Boy in that last photo with some other guys is making me like it a bit more. I still think the hair is off, though.

    Almost twice the price. $315.

    I'm thinking Astro Boy is closer to 12 inches.

    I'm excited about this piece. But based in my luck at kaws one...seems unlikely I'll score at retail...and after market this kinda stuff doesn't interest me. Funnilly enough I had a shot at the snoopy ceramic, but I'm thinking, why pay $135 for a small cookie jar that'll probably get chipped up in a minute. At least vinyl stands a better chance in my place. Anyway, yeah, hoping I can grab this. For me anyway...it works.

    Yer in NYC. Just hit TT for a small bump in price... Seriously tho, call them now and ask if they're gonna get any in and ask if you can pre-order it.
