Happy New Year everyone! Probably had my best year overall with what I picked up. Got some major ISOs like Stuzan’s Thing and, Horkey’s TWBB, and Welkers’s Troubadours and added to my Phlegm and Mu Pan collection along with a killer Tobin OG.

Looking forward to everyone’s else’s haul!! Cheers.

I picked up a couple of nice photo prints from Aaron Reed this year. Each photographic print is incapsulated between a crystal clear acrylic base layer and museum grade Trulife® acrylic glass. TruLife® is a crystal clear, scratch resistant and non-reflective acrylic glass that allows exacting detail and vibrancy to shine through without distraction:

Tunnel Vision- 60" wide x 40" tall on float mount:

Fireflies- 36" wide x 24" tall, 3" liner, 4" frame:

Looking forward to seeing some more great acquisitions...Happy New Year All!

Always love a Tiny Showcase Keyes with his classic animal compositions.

A 10 year search for a UK Quad for an obscure guilty pleasure of mine. It was a FB group MP member who actually reached out and finally hooked it up. :cheers:
