Yes there seem to be more popping up. I am not sure what the market is on this. I'll lower price to $300 shipped.

true story: This one time somebody who may have posted in this thread offered me a metallica print for twice the gallery asking price rather than tell me they were up online. Seems alot worse to me than someone who waited several hours for a print that everyone knows is going to be getting the OP's price in the aftermarket pretty consistently. Good luck with the sale

Since you are going to group me in your accusation I'd like to say it wasn't me... In fact, when I found out that Metallica print was available from the gallery I PMed every person in the thread who showed interest in it.

In your attempt at defending the seller by making some vague point, you're purposely making multiple people look bad. Either call the person out who tried to rip you off or don't say anything at all.

Good point fribhey. I should probably not have said anything, especially in a banter free zone. Pre-coffee posts are never a good idea. with that I will only say bdavenport shouldnt be the first to judge this sale. Fwiw, I think frib was how I found out about the metallica print

This isnt mine but there's way too many entitlement issues on this board. You either are lucky to score a print or you're not - this applies to every drop / release. If you don't score one and get all butt hurt over people that did that's your problem. For this release - Some people waited 4+ hours and paid almost 100 for it at face value - Let the new member do their thang vs going on a witch hunt...

Amen. And just wait until the other half are sold then pick one up on eBay, That will make about 1000 Hello Kitty prints out there...

Sadly, this is true. I would like to publicly apologize to the community for it too. I don't always make th best decisions, but I try my best to own them and be a better person going forward. This was a mistake and while I can't justify it, I can say that, to my knowledge, I haven't done that since as I realized at the time that it was a crappy thing to do. So, stuckeyc37, I appologize and ask for your fogiveness.

Way to man up bdavenport. As far as I am concerned this is water under the bridge now. I move that all banter be stricken from the record and we let the op carryon with his sale

This post is not in answer to superfly but is along the same lines. I live in a part of the country where cool art shows never come. So if I want a print like this I have to pay market value.. I haven't been collecting nearly as long as some on this board so most of what I have was purchased from eBay, this board and ebeans.

I bought the other two Kittys off ebay and the blue/purple from a board member at the same price as this print is listed. Based on the posts in the Anticipation thread, this print was a pain to get. So I have no problem with either the board member listing here or the one I bought from. In fact it seems to me that the more people selling the lower the price goes. My post above was only to let the seller know that the price was too high.....I probably should have used a PM.

No worries Superfly, I didn't think it was directed at me. Even if your post was directed at me and me alone I woud take no offense because you raised valid points IMO.

No job. No unemployment check. I don't think I'd sell for face.

It's true. I just got layed off 2 weeks ago. So what, I'm gonna get bashed for trying to sell this for another print? Wow. And since I'm new to this forum maybe someone should let me know if what I'm doing is right or wrong. Seems others do it. In that case ill just keep it to avoid any problems.

Is every thread for HK Blue sales going to have banter? We already had one thread split. Lets all just slug it out there.

By forum rules? No, you are not breaking a rule. By community norms? Maybe. Some, myself included, feel that even if it is in hand, to sell so soon after purchase means you didn't buy to appreciate, but rather to make a buck. Some think this wrong. Others don't. There also doesn't seem to be much changing of peoples minds either. So, your choice is ignore us and sell it, or respond to the comments and amend your sale. Whether it is right or wrong is up to you.
