Nobody's collection can come even close to competing with yours--great stuff! I dig the Usagi statue the most out of all the recent images.

I dunno about that. Danny's (tmnterminator) collection kicks my ass in the art department. I appreciate the complement though

Nice copy man. That should get a sweet grade if you decide to still get it graded (after your lil tirade and all). REMEMBER though, if you decide to get it signed and graded, try to coordinate with CGC so they can witness it or else it will be downgraded as "writiing" on the cover. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE will they grade it and verify that that sig is legit unless it is witnessed. I'd hate for you to get it signed first, then get a lower grade, then throw another hissy fit.

$40, which I still think is a good deal...you just got an even BETTER deal.

I mean, as far as print run goes i guess they are rare...3000 copies according to the book...but yeah, they dont seem terribly difficult to come by.

Yeah not a bad deal. I get a good deal on some things but there are others I've shelled out more cash then I desired to. Some of the Image issues I had a hell of a time getting. I paid like 15 bucks for one issue alone it was so hard to find. I also paid 500 for all of Mirage volume 1 and some extras. A few months later a better lot popped up on EBay 150 bucks for all of volume 1-3 and Archie. That was a kick in the balls but you win some.

How did you get ahold of this peice? I know the sculptor/painter of it and have a copy of the same peice.

You should email him im sure he would be flattered. pm me if you want it.

How about an interview? I know im new here but lets start up a thread, put up some questions and I can have him read it.

That's the funniest unpainted prototype I've ever seen! He looks like he's going to the beach in the 50's! Either that or he doesn't think he has the body for a bikini

That's awesome, Archon.

That IS funny.

Is that Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang member in the background another prototype or a custom? Looks awesome either way.
