$1000 can buy you a lot of groceries or clothing.

$1000 is like 3 car payments.

$1000 is more than the entire GDP of North Korea in 2010.

DON'T DO IT MAN

I am glad this release wasn't last week. I had time to think it over and will not be going for it. Instead trying to get a Mr Jago Canvas.


See my for sale thread if you would like to help contribute to that fund : )

Who will be buying that isn't a re-seller? I would think most collectors with $1000 would like to spend that money on earlier MBW ISO's instead. Except for those that already have every MBW they want of course.

I'm definitely curious as to what will go down on ebay in the next few days. This could be a huge flip or failip. It could be getting $1,800 or $800. Roll of the dice on this one. A pricey roll though. Guess it all depends on how many are buying to flip. If judging by the usual percentage, there will be 20 of these on ebay. Most likely see a lot of undercutting on ebay, most flippers won't want to sit on a $1k print for too long. Then again, wtf do I know...just my humble opinion.

I highly doubt this will fetch $1800. I haven't seen a legitimate MBW piece go that high, especially not a print with a 125 a run. Worst case I see this going for about retail +/-. I don't think it will go for less than $800-$900 since most of his prints tend to stay around retail, unless of course someone is just looking to dump it.

My prediction is that the first few will get around $1300-1500 (and maybe they will be bought/sold by MBW).

Within two-three weeks they will be found for face or lower.

Then when they start arriving people will TRY to trade them for older/rarer MBW works that are selling for the $1k mark.

1K- that's a scary investment.
You guys should take that 1K and buy a couple things off your ISO list.
I don't think this will sell out within a min.
But we shall see.
Good luck to the fans that want it because you're a fan.
Good luck to those that are buying to flip.
(I don't think you will make a huge profit on this one for some time)
I'm just going to enjoy watching it all play out from the sidelines.

I'm going for this today. I flip Brainwash sometimes but today I'm going for it strictly as a fan. I really like this piece.
