Since all his stuff comes from Japan, your best bet as others have mentioned is eBay. I have contacted several galleries there and they want ungodly pricing on his stuff. I too have been looking for awhile.

I noticed that the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA has some in their online store -

I've always wanted Cube 2 and Cosmos. They would be a cool set. They added Time Bokan a few days ago, but the price is on the higher end.

I wanted to add that Takashi Murakami is currently touring the US to show his first feature film "Jellyfish Eyes" - I had the pleasure of seeing it last night at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC where he introduced the film and then did a Q&A session afterwards. There are a few more appearances coming up - details on the film website:

http://www.jellyfisheyesthemovie.com/

May 25 MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
*Takashi Murakami in person for post-screening Q&A CHICAGO, IL

May 30 THE THEATRE AT ACE HOTEL DOWNTOWN LA
*Takashi Murakami in person introducing the film LOS ANGELES, CA

June 1 FILM SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER
*Takashi Murakami in person for post-screening Q&A NEW YORK, NY

June 5 ASIAN ART MUSEUM SAN FRANCISCO, CA More Info

They are doing a little pop up gift store at the screenings and each one has a special limited edition poster with the date * name of that city signed & numbered limited to 50 copies. I picked up one yesterday and was thrilled that he did a little drawing of one of his creatures on it :) They are $100 but on a heavy paper stock with a canvasy texture.

Murakami was hanging around the gift shop before and after the screening & very happy to pose for photos and sign stuff, I was thrilled to get him to sign my @MURAKAMI art book and he drew a little happy flower in it :)

sadly no poster at the new york event, apparently there was some kind of mixup with the printer. Murakami could not have been nicer or more generous with his time. signed everyone books, figures etc.

was stoked to have him sign two post cards i had been holding on to for years since the show in brooklyn and my ego book.

Preparations for my exhibition at the Palazzo Reale in Milan are moving full steam ahead. There will be some new paintings on display so I hope you all look forward to it. The show opens to general audiences on July 24 but the free Jellyfish Eyes screening will take place on Wednesday the 23rd from 18:00 at the Cinema Apollo in Duomo.
