I'd pick up the metallic blue or transparent blue if I had the cash. :tonqe:
Those prices are super high. Some are fine but most are unreasonable.

If you want the transparent blue at a cheaper price hit me up! Im selling mine.

The prices aren't all that bad for most. Have no idea why he/she is asking $185 for the root beer though.

I've had an OG White and Black set and a NYCC premium black chrome up for sale for months for way less than he's asking. If anyone is interested I'd do $90 each for Black and White with silver text and $150 for NYCC Black Chrome.

Oh wow. The prices have come down a bunch more than I thought. I mostly see the prices on Mandarake but I guess the North American prices are a bit lower these days. Good to know. Gmid, I would love to have that black and white set but need a full time position first. :? Hopefully someone takes you up on them.

Thanks man. Yeah, prices have taken a huge hit unfortunately. I think I paid over $300 for the NYCC Black Chrome back in the day and now I'm struggling to get half that. Definitely taking a loss on most of my toys these days. My Kaws figures where the only thing I've sold recently that I didn't lose money on. I almost hate to let this stuff go for so cheap, but space is at a premium these days and unfortunately I don't have room to keep most of it.

Whoa. What the heck happened to your sales thread. Just went to take a look and looks like the first pages are gone. Guess Guru couldn't help?

Too true. When I was living in Tokyo I was getting calls about muling Rebel Inks on a regular basis even though they were going for $300+ for many of them.

I too really love the design. I have more RIs than any other vinyl with the single exception of Knuckle Bears, but that was the result of an insane bargain I found. :D

So I know the forum is fairly dormant these days but I recently found this guy for sale at Mandarake in Japan and I'm not sure that I know what this is...
Silver Rebel Ink with no print
I am familiar with almost all of the RIs including a bunch of the prototype ones that were released through ZoZoTown but I'm pretty sure I've never seen this one. Anyone know anything about it?

Hey man

Been a while ...like you said this forum is pretty dead ...but I'm still at it ....I'm actually looking for some of the RebelInk I've missed .

This one in your b post just looks like the first silver flake w/black print minus the print ...a old proto or test piece maybe be cool to score it ....what is he selling it for ?

Good to see some of the old faces still around man!

¥6000 and probably about ¥1400-2000 for shipping. Mandarake is really fair with their shipping costs. So that would be between $50-60US for the figure and say $12-18 for shipping. However it does say this does not come with packaging and it does have damage. I can't see anything really big from the photos but there are small scratches on the left eyebrow, right thumb knuckle, back of the left shoulder and on the back. I do remember the ZoZoTown sold prototypes and one offs came without packages. I guess this may have been one of them. Pretty good price for what could be a unique figure.
