Hi, I’m Luke. I am not a Kid Robot collector per say but an enthusiast for eclectic and interesting art and creative things in all aspects of life.

Due to this being my first post I’m just going to give some background information on myself and the history of this K.R. piece re: how I came to become the fortunate owner of it, and hopefully provide credibility for anyone in doubt ( I read the first time seller’s rules =P )

Background Info on Item

That said I was fortunate to grow up in Northern, N.J. 10 miles south of NYC. Even more fortunate to have a hip mom who is an artist for a living and happened to be working in SoHO in 2003. At that time I was not familiar with Kid Robot but being a member of the artistic community she was somehow privy to K.R. and the fact this piece was going to be released and got me it as a gift. =)

Fast forward to now, I’m software engineer in Washington. D.C. and have been job hunting the last month. An E.R. trip and corresponding slew of unanticipated medical bills about 3 weeks ago really threw my life out of whack ( I’m only 24 … not much savings built up ). That said even though I am currently in my final rounds of interviews and will be getting offers this week, I’ve reached $0 and that’s not going to last for 3 weeks.

It pains me to have to sell this, especially because it was a gift, but I figured I might be able to find some solace by coming here and selling it to someone that appreciates the art and is not looking to purchase it just to resell it.

That last point is critical as I am open to selling at somewhat of a discount in light of my current circumstances and bills that are not going to pay themselves. I figure If I do that on eBay someone is just going to buy it and resell it to make a quick buck. So I would rather give someone here that discount.

Apologize for lack of brevity…anywho here are the pictures…

*Note* I only have the actual item. I am unable to find the box. (It might be at my parent’s house in N.J. and if that is the case I will look next time I’m home and if I find it I’ll mail it on my dime to the ultimate buyer =) ).

Despite not being a K.R. collector I was a very serious collector of sports memorabilia in the past and currently am with LE Nike SB’s. So I understand the passion people have and share the same disdain for resellers =/.

Additionally I hope the above lends some credence to my ability to rumpess the condition of the item. It has been handled at most 20 times since 2003 despite being out of the box. I pretty much had on my book shelf just chilling keeping watch over my room.

Although I am familiar with the rough value of the item I am not going to list an explicit price but would rather entertain offers.

*** Edit after being made privy to forum rules…my apologies ***

$750 or best offer.

I will only accept Pay Pal for payment. I have a certified Pay Pal Merchant Account. I also have a Fed Ex business account and will ship free Fed Ex Ground or Home delivery ( we can determine any additional shipping options the potential buyer might want…i.e. evening delivery, signature required etc. ).

I am more than willing to speak on the phone with potential buyers to answer any questions or rumpuage any concerns over this being my first post.

Additionally I am looking to sell this item rather quickly in light of my current financial situation and really do not want to have to resort to making it “buy it now” on eBay for a ridiculously low value. I would much rather find a passionate collector that I can offer a discount to and feel that I am not being taken advantage of by my circumstances forcing me to sell the item for astronomically low. I think that would be the ideal win win scenario for both parties.

I can be reached at lukemhamilton@gmail.com

Thanks,

Luke =)

Nice piece

Board rules say you must post a price, so I'd suggest putting a OBO price on the OG post and working it out from there.

Otherwise, no one will be very helpful.

Welcome

Dogs…The only price I could find anywhere on the internet was 1 for sale for $888 on Ebay and no other price history on the net. As I said I’m not a KR collector. I have no problem adjusting the price. I was merely using the only information I was able to find in 2 hours of research. I am unfamiliar with the entire sub culture…and “sob” story…whatever dude it’s the truth. Was it really necessary to be such an Cocoa Puff though? Does it make you feel better writing a response like that?

In your shoes I would have recognized the poster as lacking knowledge of the market and informed them of my opinion without taking shots. Whatever bro it’s your karma…default on it if you want.

I would be interested in hearing other’s thoughts on appropriate pricing and going from there.

have you tried searching completed listings on ebay?
If there are any, that would be a good indicator of current market price.

Maybe I was a bit rough on you, then again maybe not. You say you wanna sell at a discount to kr members instead of selling on eBay . But you get your price off a ridiculous eBay listing that never even sold. I understand you have to list a price, but even if you listed at $500 obo , I would of still made the same comment. I suggest you check the Looking to buy section on these messageboards and you will find a couple of people willing to pay a fair price. Good luck with your sale

I am also interested, is it still available & current price?

That pice is way too high, I found one that sold for 120 (7 months ago) online, with box & all but also had a low edition number.

grampianmountains How much are you asking? & what edition number is it?

£120 or $120? I agree his price was far too high but either wau I think I'll hang onto it just now if they're only going for as a little as that. I was just testing the water to be honest, good to know though thanks. Where did it sell, eBay or on a forum?

Edition number is #700 on mine.

If this piece merits such a high price, why doesn't the Bode Broad sell for the same? Its a much nicer piece as well
