Where's it even being advertised? Mika sent me that picture, and I cant find nada through Hiddy's IG or on the SB site.

I believe this is 1 of 3 that were released at Kirk Hammets Fear FestEvil.
They're done in such small numbers it's almost impossible to get them all, this is the reason I don't own even 1

Yeah the red and black marbled I have was directly from the Toy Tokyo booth at the festival, that was literally the only way to get that one at drop. The aftermarket ones that sold on eBay were for ridiculous prices.

But damn this new one is so dope, can't stop looking at it. :tonqe:

Since there's no tattoo, I'm assuming it's a factory sample, so I would say that ones extremely rare. Like a Hiddy hand gifted piece or one hanging around SB headquarters.

I know a couple of people have asked for a full list so I've saved a jpeg of my Rebel Ink Catalogue.
It's how I kept a log of what I needed to complete and shows the release order & year.
Big shout out to eckotyper for the original list all those years ago when I start collecting Rebel Ink.

If anyone sees any mistakes in here please let me know.

Cheers

Andy

I want to grab that black lame one that's been on ebay forever, but I don't like the back tattoo. It's really hard to find one that has both a color scheme and a tattoo that I like...

Thanks for the list buddy!

I've been considering adding the double pour GID to the top priorities on my wants list but idk, I'm torn, because I almost want to track down a Black Dallas colorway first... :rolleyes:
