    Yeah I kind of think the Coke Bape was a major one that will always stand out too.

    I also did like the Black & Gold one

    So much so that I used one of my Japan FS-8's to mimic the colors
    By adding gold striped glass/black-gold resin etc.
    Hey they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right

    You know I agree too that the 2015 looks a little stark but would like to see one in person too.

    I think that FS face behind a shiny silver plate might be looking kind of sweet.
    Also they are running the silver stripe with white lettering on the glass & that might be sweet too.

    They went with the retro grey light button which may also be nice although a shiny silver would have matched that plate pretty good too
    Happy to see they are still doing these though.

    Nahh not fo me, the last Coca Cola Bape was epic, unfortunately I did not have a chance to get that one before prices went crazy!

    This one looks similar to the Krink and I quickly flipped that one because I was not a fan of the grey EL button and this one is also grey I see. Also the resin was not silver enough like I had expected. Much prefer the look on that 30TH Anniversary silver one they did the DW-6930BS-8:

    I see that this Bape seem to be the same type of silver grey used on the Krink. Also I think the level of customization on this one appear to be rather on the low side! And it is a standard DW-6900 rather then GD-X6900, despite that they want 15% more money for this one then the coming Alife GD-X6900AL that has a high level of customization. Talk about just paying for the brand, feels a bit silly!

    Joakim thanks for the DW-6930BS-8 pic
    I never really looked at it because I shy away from Neg displays

    Interesting though as I now see & I never knew it was basically a HM2-ER with a silver light button & resin

    On the Bapes as well as other older repeating Japan release collabs it will be interesting to see if they do go towards a GD-X platform or stay with the DW's

    Some of these...especially Japan only releases I do not see ever changing to a G not built in Japan
    Will be interesting to see though if for instance a GD-X comes out of Japan eventually

    I notice most of these Japan release collabs usually tend to use the FS built in Japan DW's
    Some collabs though like Stussy use the China made DW's

    Also in Japan as well as other Asian areas these are as big with the girls as the guys so I wonder
    if that also has something to do with staying with the DW size ?


    Personally I am not a collector/collab buyer unless it is something that really grabs me & so far that has only been the San Frecce as I really liked
    a few things on it. I did buy the Stussy to see what that was all about but flipped it. The San Frecce I am keeping

    Looks quite similar with the Krink. I love the backlight though, looks dope!

    ...thanks for sniffing another one out, Mike. As I already have the KRINK and the 6930BS, I doubt i'll get this - and yes, the negative is disappointing....now the ALIFE is another matter.
