    It may be because of the interval between the green and grey BAPE Convoys but your (and many other fan's) opinion on this seems to be reflected in the after market prices. I bought the green version off ebay last year, weighing getting a cheap one against building a surplus of savings, and it still put my collecting into slow motion for a couple of months. :D

    Meh. I liked the prior Camo paintjobs (they actually looked pretty good) but Red Camo? Really?

    I wish they would design something that appeals to straight people too.

    I don't think it looks that bad, it does remind me of the red Music Label Prime. That said, I don't know why BAPE doesn't go with the obvious choice and put out an exclusive Optimus Primal, that one's a match made in heaven!

    Red Music Label Prime looks much better than this Red Bathing Ape Prime

    It would actually be hypebeast/ streetwear
    Streetwear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I got into streetwear due to hardcore punk but quickly realized how lame it was, and it was way too expensive. I like this out of nostalgia but would not object to picking up a ko if need be

    P.s. I just remembered I need to find my old Cold War hoodie that ripped off Bape

    Anyone know if the japanese preorder sites get these for close to retail? Because I'm not paying BBTS pricetag. Might as well get a grey camo one.

    I don't even see the appeal to these. Unless you're just one of those people who have to have one of everything, but that's another discussion.

    :lol  yeah, me too. never really understood/ cared too much for the BAPEXCONVOY stuff to ever buy them anyways. It's a cool kitsch and nostalgic item, but too expensive for me.
