While I really love metallics, this is the one print where I think the colors on the reg are perfection.

The bright red on Ansin's regular Phantom blows the metallic variant away. No question.

Agreed. Not enough superlatives to describe the regular!
One day i hope to have the money for my very own. Aftermarket is a bitch. :(

I know this is said a lot, but the jpeg doesn't do the print justice. The colors look so much better in person

Totally agree...I actually prefer the variant, I feel like the more sombre palette really give at a more ominous tone...in love with this print...worth every penny...

I hope it was just a fluke and not the start of an upward trend. :shock:

I really need to own this. But it'll be a while before i can but together 1000 - $1200ish for the usual selling price. If it is gonna go to really crazy prices then there is no chance for me.

IMO,as fantastic a piece as it is, it is kind of overpriced at $1200. But at least i had reconciled myself with that being the upper limit and possibly attainable. 1600 bucks is insane.

Especially when one sold after that for less than $1k. I don't trust any of apgallery81's sales.

Are we talking reg or variant here? The variant will always hold value (and should climb) given the relatively small run. Yes, I am totally biased. 8)

The pic on the link to ebay in the sales history is for the reg,so is the edition size.
I don't quite understand it though - it looks like the end price was $2000, but it is recorded at 1660. :?
I'm confused.

I own the variant, and its amazing in person. One of my favourite prints. The metallics on it are some of the best I've seen
