This guide teaches you how to spot fake Kaws figures.

All Kaws figures can be checked with this guide.

No time to waste. Let’s go!

How to tell if your Kaws Figure is real

To tell if your Kaws Figure is real or fake, check the facial details, particularly the lines that form the face.

Fake figures often have inaccurately sized lines.

1. Glue Stains

Kaws Figure Glue Stains
  • Authentic: Perfectly attached “body parts” and paint, without any glue stains.
  • Fake: Has glue stains and poorly fit plastic pieces.

2. Face

  • Authentic:
    • Eyes: Bold and deeply set “X X” logo.
    • Nostrils: Noticeably deep and thick holes.
    • Glove Symbol: Distinctly thick “X” logo on gloves.
  • Fake:
    • Eyes: Thin and superficially set “X X” logo.
    • Nostrils: Shallow and thinly formed holes.
    • Glove Symbol: Thin “X” logo on gloves.

3. Soles

Kaws Figure Soles
  • Authentic:
    • Bigger dots in “Kaws..”
    • Thicker and bigger letters in “MEDICOM”
  • Fake:
    • Smaller, shorter “..” dots
    • The two letters “M” are too thick and small.

Let’s look at another authentic example:

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

4. Gloves

Kaws Figure Gloves
  • Authentic: Thicker, solid “X” with the same thickness all over the letter.
  • Fake: Thinner “X” at the top.

See how the fake “X” is improperly filled with paint as well — it has scratches in the middle.

5. Holographic sticker

Kaws Figure Box Sticker
  • Authentic: Has the holographic sticker.
  • Fake: Missing sticker on the box.

6. Packaging paper

Kaws Figure Packaging Paper
  • Authentic: The paper has engravings just like on the box.
  • Fake: Empty paper, without any inscriptions.

7. Box

Kaws Figure Box
  • Authentic: Has a barcode.
  • Fake: Missing barcode.

Shortlist: Legit check your Kaws figure

If you’re in a hurry or shopping online, you can rely on the following two key indicators:

  1. See if there are any glue stains. Fake figures may have their parts improperly attached.
  2. Examine the details on the face of your Kaws Together figure, paying attention to the holes that form the face and gloves of the doll. Replicas tend to have these holes too thin.
  3. Check the inscription on the sole of your Kaws figure, as fake versions may have text with the incorrect thickness.
