I realized I forgot to pay for the lucky bag so I didn't luck out :(. I really wanted the mini vincent but none of the other items really so maybe it's for the best...

Hoping for some new full sized INC Bears for 2017!

Speaking of, if anyone has any that they'd like to unload in a trade, please let me know!

I was actually hoping the 2017 lucky bag included a new Inc, preferably in the same gold color. I ended up buying the Gold King Inc from a few years ago but it doesn't quite look like the lucky bag gold. Oh well can't be too greedy, I can't wait to see that King Korpse and mini vincent in person :badgrin:

Hey all! Looking to sell or trade my Pastel Pearl Vincent; I'm particularly interested in Coarse, KAWS and other Instinctoy stuff (maybe another Vincent colourway). Message me if you're interested :)

I missed out. I only sent in for the Yu Show Long piece though which is extremely rare. I believe they only made 20, sold 11 at the con and put the rest up for lottery or something like that. Wish I won it the piece looks amazing. :)

Bummer :( I won one, which really surprised me. Got the email like an hour after posting here. Super pumped to get it, but sadly I'm not in a position to go nuts and buy all the floors; they're 7500 yen each, up to a maximum of 8, and orders have to be placed within the next week since they're made to order by Black Seed. I suppose it's actually kind of nice as it means every Yu Shou Long out there is 'complete' since no more floors are available, but still. Just placed an order for two though, as I think the extra height would make it look more imposing while keeping things proportional, like a tower with guard dragons, and not just a weird house-dragon thing.

Anyone else get lucky with the recent lottery?

I was fortunate enough to get picked for the Curio.

Nice! The only one I went in for was the mini Vincent, which I sadly did not get. Still, I count myself very lucky to have won Yu Shou Long last month, so I'm still very happy. Congrats on the Curio, and do post some photos up here once you have it :D

Absolutely; their lineup for the show is looking very impressive. I'm hoping Erosion Molly and a set of mini Ice Liquids won't be too expensive, as I'm very interested in those. Otherwise, as much as I want everything they've announced, I'd rather wait for King Korpse v2 and the Kaiju Killer.

I won the clear Vincent at Five Points, but decided I had nowhere to display and couldn't really afford the $200. I let another guy buy it who's daughter really wanted it and he passed me a few bucks. I know I could have sold it for a lot, but I hate flippers and felt it might be a good way to keep it in the community.

Sooooo how bad did I mess up? :D

QT thats a fine thing to do, trust me with the way that flippers attacked 5 points, you aren't even scratching the surface of doing anything bad IMO.

looking to setup a nice display with that and the monster poster behind it

You did awesome man. That kid is gonna be flying high. The dad passed you a few bucks as a thanks, not as a flipper fee.

ah that's sweet. I'm disappointed that the flippers descended upon five points like that. I'm super excited to go next year and hope instinctoy is back in force again!

I'm so glad you sold it to somebody who'll really care about it, good on you. Screw all the Five Points flippers with a ten-foot pole. It's definitely worse for flipping in NYC; I have no idea why but it's a bigger part of the culture here than any other city I've been to. If they don't have a plan to limit purchases effectively, I won't be attending next year.

You should have seen the lines for any KAWS toy release through his Original Fake store in Tokyo. Chinese exchange students as far as the eye could see. They were organized by flipping groups in Hong Kong and Mainland China. It was absolutely insane. Most of them had no idea what they were lining up for but they knew they'd get paid a bounty if they got something.

Wooooooooow!

I didn't even think to ask. Honestly, it happened pretty quickly and I didn't think it through too much since I couldn't afford it at the time. I just saw him looking at all his wristbands to see if he had entered and he seemed really upset when he wasn't. I overheard him apologize to his daughter, so I felt bad. What a snake!

I'm guessing there isn't anything I can do now. I'm definitely shooting him a message on eBay.

nunchucks flippers, I'm not helping anyone like that again.

Wait, are you certain the one on EBay is the one you sold him? It might be someone else. Best not to jump to conclusions, especially if he had his daughter there an you clearly heard him apologizing to her.

Either way, how were you to know he'd flip it? You did the right thing trying to help someone out. Your karma is still unsullied.
