Anyone have any Brogan prints floating around?
interested.

A lot of the stuff from the 3 man show was great and disappeared from the site last year when I was looking to finally pick up.

But.

I got one that I cannot identify for the life of me. It's a piece with a cymbol monkey and some band players, possibly pinnochio? It is marked Z E P E and numbered 2/200. Anyone have an idea? I'll grab a picture when I'm back in the office tomorrow.
SEPE "Follow the Leader".

Jealous. I love that print.

Ah thank you! Yeah I was not expecting it at all with how it seems mostly to be pop art stuff, but when I pulled it out I was blown away!

Got home from vacation to see my Variant Mystery Tube waiting. I've got no complaints. Solid tube all around.

Rogue Trooper - Florian Bertmer
Image

Edward Scissorhands Variant - Sam Wolfe Connelly
Image

Hope is Not Lost Today. It is Found - Mark Englert
Image

Assault on Precinct 13 Variant - Martin Ansin
Image

Kristofferson Handbill - Tyler Stout
Image

Facehugger Pin
Image

All are available for trade. If anything catches your eye let me know. The details in the Bertmer and the printing of the Ansin are pretty dang impressive. I just don't see them making the wall, mainly because I'm not familiar with the source material.
Would love to work out a trade for either an Awesome-o or the Upside Down I saw some snag earlier in the thread.

Was going to buy in for two variant mystery tubes, but I flubbed the deadline due to general life busy-ness at the time.

Honestly impressed though, with how Bottleneck handled the mystery tube "dilemma", in that they mitigated some of the inevitable disappointment (in a typical 100%-mystery type tube), by guaranteeing one of a couple of pretty cool (imo) prints. So with the BN tubes, you knew what you were getting into. At least a little bit. And the "mystery" element remained intact.

Seeing a lot of nice hauls here, makes me super regret missing out. 'grats!

That Sepe is proper childhood creepy. Perfect for the kids room. And a hell of a bargain to boot. Well done BNG.

I've gotten mildly lucky with the nakatomi mystery lotto, but these tubes are destroying señor fugazi's offerings of hope, test prints, and reprints

Yeah I have been burned too many times before so stupidly passed on these but as I see what is coming in I'm really kicking myself :?
