Still worth it if your a Horkey fan, nothing flip-able tho so I hope they all went to good homes.

Three prints at 135, so 45 a piece shipped. Not expecting a wood Naif, but hell some color variations on Shades would be well worth it. If I was looking to flip I would buy a trampoline :D

Prints sold quickest, but not instant. I had time to think about it, mess up the card checkout, go back and do Paypal, all on my phone, and I still made it through fine. Bag B was gone by this morning, and A is gone now too.

Are the prints going to be the ones listed on their site already? Please post once they arrive.

For us newer Horkey fans, could someone give the backstory of Horkey with Megafauna? Seems kinda odd that an American artist would ship his art to the other side of the world. It would be interesting to know how many of the prints they sell that make the round trip back to the US.

Thanks talkingdeads. Is Shingo another name for Megafauna, a person or something else?

Shingo is the man behind MegaFauna. Regret not making it to MWH to meet him in person with how many emails we have exchanged over the years.

Also worth noting, the VAST majority of what Shingo sells, are just his own items he has collected over the years outside of the actual collabs and editions created specifically to be sold there.

East coaster here too...i just happened to get very very lucky :shock:

....was awake re-bingeing up some "Bloodline," getting ready for the final season. it may not be the greatest show ever, but it's essentially filmed in my home town so i dig it.

Im certainly hoping for some prints that haven't been sitting on the site, unsold for many months now (i don't think thats really Shingo's style anyways ala Tim Doyle). but, after quickly doing the math, I realized there was no way I could pass. Shingo always tosses in extra goodies, and i like the dream that there's a chance he pulls out some older gems for those of us lucky enough to have grabbed a tube. Besides, if i do get any prints that I already own, or I'm not really into, then hopefully they will find a good home come this October.

Ive never bought a Horkey to flip. Off the top of my head, I don't think I've ever even sold one. The few that are in my trades are all easily available for reasonable prices in many places on the web and i own other versions of them...

I am wondering how many people who did score tubes bought 5 or more...with no limit as to how many you could buy someone coulda easily become eligible for THC 2017 in a single purchase. :lol:

Absolutely not. It was a dumpster fire of a movie.

I was curious about the connection as well
