My not-gonna-happen wild speculation...Harry Potter box set. Sutfin listed 8 artists in his post. 7 books + Irruption. Because, ya know, Harry Potter and owls.

But the hype comes in waves. There's the initial hype immediately following the sellout, offering fuel for the not-yet-in-hand flips. Then there's the "it arrived and looks better in person" hype. Then, once the Vacvvm releases something people don't like there'll be the "Remember when Vacvvm releases were awesome" hype :P

Ask me, vacvvm's been more hype and marketing than actual awesome art.
Yup. Honestly, i'm not too big on that Irruption. It's just another owl to me. Only thing i'm really excited to see is that Sutfin piece. I'm fine with not owning anything else but that.

I think if you have to get them all or nothing, then that's just tarded. And will push some people away i'd imagine.

The most popular speculation seems to be that this will be a boxed set and/or very expensive release. But everything from the Vacvvm so far has been quite affordable. Even Croatoan was only, what, $250? A tad expensive, yes, but released alongside another $100 print.

I'd wager that this is just drops from all the artists. Average price of around $100 a pop, and the "biggest thing we've done yet" just refers to the simultaneous release. But whatever, that's just speculation too. We'll all probably be eating our words in 3 hours' time.
