EDIT: although i'm pretty sure that doesn't say /150 so maybe it's an AP or PP or something.
It says AP
So it goes...

I think RO is only like 20 or so.
Yeah, I was thinking 20-30, but that's 15-20% less for gen-pop. Also, it looks like the gray one in the photo is a AP anyway, so that part is probably irrelevant. Still, if Palimpsest will sell 455 and Snare 640, 150 seems hype-drivingly low.

Love both of these. Can't wait to see a full picture of the red as well. Good luck to everyone trying tomorrow. I know I will probably strike out myself lol.

I prefer the blue as well. And I think it is a better and cleaner image without colour, so I am glad it is not a full-colour print. Off work tomorrow, so it will be much harder to score :lol:

mfaith wrote:Just spitballing here, but with the tease of the Black Osprey enamel pin, I think he just means that there'll be a collection of offerings available from him including the prints, and the pin, and perhaps some other stuff. He used similar language when Teagan had her first set of releases with the group, which was a collection of things that she had created, including a print, t-shirt, and pins:
aaronhorkey wrote:Vernal Equinox (detail) by Teagan White { @teaganwh } - a new limited edition 7 color screenprint releasing today at 12pm CST via @thevacvvm Her inaugural VACVVM capsule collection also includes a beautiful new tshirt and a pair of stunning enamel pins - make haste, people... Teagan's work continues to confound & amaze, she's continuously expanding her brilliantly detailed worlds while flexing her otherworldly chops across any medium she chooses to utilize - beyond thrilled to have her among the ranks at The VACVVM & terrified/excited to see where she takes us next. #teaganwhite #thevacvvm #vernalequinox #proteam #upthewolves
It would appear that "capsule" in this case only means "here are several Black Osprey items that are being released at the same time," and not a literal package of said items collected together.

I feel like this is the first print I have seen in over a year that I actually have any interest in owning.

More than these. In general Mega Fauna editions are usually smaller and given that, also more pricey.

Is Mega Fauna having a completely separate release date with their red version? Haven't seen any info yet.

I don't think any has been announced.

I love the Japanese title text... That makes it a game changer for me. Going for the red.
