RR was randomly inserted with the other four Dicks.
6 all together. Mine had 5 (Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Hussein, Kim Jong Il) with no Reagan. If you got a Reagan, were you missing one of the others?

Thanks man, I knew there was one. I'm gonna retool the super listings in the database so that the complete sets can be listed for all of them instead of individuals in as many places as possible.

I have the 72 in the list and have decide to call it quits. The dictators aren't really my thing and look too samey. The artist ones don't interest me outside of mondocon (extremely jealous of the guy who got them all signed, that's how you do it) and would just be a reminder of what I missed out on that weekend by not attending.

It's been a lot of fun collecting them all, a lot of different exchanges and messages with friends, going to events, trading with my girlfriend who won a lottery at her first gallery show, and even a late night Stone IPA delivery to the sidewalk of Melrose. But 72 is divisible by 12 and Mike had scared me mentioning he wants to do 200-300 :lol:

I'll probably get another here and there if they are favorite characters but yeah gotta call it somewhere. /coolstorybro

Mike, if you read this.. thanks for working with Dan to get Pulp Fiction going, it's godly, and I can't wait for it to show up at my doorstep.

Long live the PPCC

Same here. It is the only one I'm missing.

would love to see pics of the mondo artist series

great minds clearly think alike as this is an extract from a PM I sent him about a week ago
I was just thinking it would be great to see a small set of portraits/JLUs of the main mondo artists for mondocon or similar (probably a bit late for this time around though) - you, Olly, TStout, Ansin and KT (both of them) - the main reason I say this was just imagining a JLU of Horkey with a large bird helmet on covered in red string!
:wink: sadly I cant claim "OMG you stole my idea" as the PM is still sat unread in my outbox :(

Can't find the Red-winged blackbird in the database but I'm pretty sure I saw it on the homepage a few days back... am I just tired?

I don't think anything but Hitler and the portrait are added right now.

My buddy was 4th in line at Mikes Booth on Sat and picked me up the first set of Super Dicks. It had a Reagan in it with a run size of 30

Oh man, I can't believe I forgot to post this :shock: . While EB was broken again, I had some time last weekend to look through some photos on FB from my friend's trip to Japan. I'm not sure what this is, but it looks like a "butt baby" to me :lol: :
