That list of eBay sales is delightful, MBW advertises a release... you had to know the majority were destined to languish on eBay.

Noticed the initial email detailed an edition of 75 @ $500 and a short time after a follow-up email adjusted the numbers to an edition of 125 @ $425.

Curious if that change was the result of pressure/backlash? Or was it just looking to increase revenue?

Did you see Exit Through the Gift Shop? Remember that part where Thierry was just randomly throwing out numbers as a way to price his fudge? And just laughing at how absurd it all is? That's what that change in edition and price was. He's just blatantly showing that he can set his prices and edition sizes just about anywhere and his fudge will still sell out.

Pretty amazing that there are 60 on eBay though, that's almost all of the originally stated edition size! :lol:

pretty sure is was just a mule not updating the email before sending. someone pointed out that the edition size and price matched that of the previous (pow) release.

Moot point. Banksy wouldn't release some piece of fudge like this.
