I'll wait it out til they're near cost or I'll simply pass. I ain't feeding the flippers.

Over 1/3 of the main edition on ebay :lol:
Yea once I see that amount on eBay. It’s best to move on.

it's not a toy, it's a sculpture... I saw two of the first/original colorway in person at clutter gallery (not sure if clutter produced them for silent stage and the ones I saw were prototypes or if they just had two of them - one of them was either custom painted or they were testing paint on one) and they were much larger than I was expecting and they were gorgeous in person. it's two pieces, the body is one piece and the hand is a separate piece

Bulky has one and seems to love it. They're made in the USA believe it or not.

I havent heard a good reason to justify the price on these prints from Print Them All. I was hoping the lithographs were printed on a nice thick cotton paper if possible with a hand deckled edge.

Kind of how Cleon Peterson prints turn out.

I also think it's one of his least interesting or compelling images from the past year or 2.

oof i disagree but to each their own, I do agree these printhemall pieces are a bit costly given the current market, but I rather get them now then in a year or two once Reeder starts having shows internationally on a regular basis.
