Edit: This drop went off as smoothly as could’ve been expected. The Ding Dong Takuhaibin website never crashed even though there is no doubt this drop was in high demand. The set of plates were the first to sell out in just under 5 minutes. The black, grey and brown 7-inch figures sold out just minutes later, in that order.
New Kaws pieces will be dropping on Saturday, Jan 19, 2019 at 6am (EST) on Ding Dong Takuhaibin. As soon as the release was announced, many fans were already questioning whether the DDTStore website will be able to handle the amount of traffic a KAWS drop brings without breaking. Only time will tell.
You can check out the price list below. Certainly the most unique item is the set of 4 ceramic plates (for $130). It’s worth noting that the figure and the plates are rather small compared to other Kaws figure/items. The figures are only 7-inches and come in a blister pack. While the size of the plates are not listed on the website, photos of the plates next to the figure show that they are about the same size. Check out the full Kaws Drop list below.
