    What the hell happened...

    Yes, I did buy it when sales went online. Only $211 at the time in 2011. And it was to be displayed for a period but was stolen while on display from the gallery. PK and FOE were notified as soon as I saw it for sale. The person who stole it and/or the current seller seem to not know what it actually is and don’t seem to be on SB based on my messages.

    Step away from the board for the weekend, and all hell breaks out.

    Because I clicked to watch said auction (out of curiosity) I got an offer from the seller for 5% off listed price! Only good for 48 hours tho! :shock::lol:

    Well it looks like the seller took it down. I am curious what might have happened.

    Action is being taken. Thanks to all informing me.
    I have an idea who was behind it, if he didn't he offered someone money to do it. Regardless it reminds me of how nice it is when the real POS move on to other things. Funny it shows up now....It was typical pattern then , but nice to experience the present when a customer, fan, friend base matures and the toxins boil out.

    I was hell bent on finding one of these slime blanks from the get out. This one popped up, but I wasn’t rly supposed to be buying toys (on account of having to pay for my wedding a couple days later). Haha, long story short this was a present I bought myself for doing such a good job on our wedding! Not sure if that’s a thing that people do, or not? Whatever, I’m super into him!

    Always a pleasure, sir. Enjoy your perch.

    And very nice capture, Robert! Puts me in the mind of the finest Christmas decorations.

    Paul's most recent painted foray into his ever expanding library of the Boss Carrion! I love this dark plum purple, and the sky blue sprays on the face off a PERFECT facial highlight of contrast. Paul's one of those artists that offers an array of colors that I'd never think to use together, yet he somehow manages to consistently marry them all in a way that's infinitely pleasing to the eyes!

    From Unbox, in conjunction with Paul, comes what I've dubbed the Grave Dancer Boss Charged. All I can see is this Boss existing in a graveyard, bathed in fog. A buddy of mine looks at this release and see a clear boss filled with smoke, and I think that's a rather fantastic thought.

    Rainy day blues have been abundant for me and the household as of late, but these Boss Carrion were certainly smile inducing nonetheless. Amazing blue pigment for this soft vinyl pachyderm.

    One of these things is not like the others. Who can spot the impostor?
    Apologies for the quick snaps.

    Reminiscent, to a certain degree, of Paul’s Red Boss6 from June 2011, we now have another entry to the Red Boss family! The deep metallic blues against the red vinyl base are, of course, giving me classic Bullmark Minya vibes. Very excited about adding this heffalump to the collective.

    devastated to have missed this one but the hunt is half the fun. PK's take on classic themes is always next level

    @MoonspellxRites I believe it was @analog101 that once said Paul is the perfect bridge between traditional(vintage) and neo kaiju, and it’s the best descriptor I’ve ever heard in reference to PK’s body of work!

    @rattanicus Thank you, Rei! It’s absolutely beautiful in hand, and I’m a very happy PK participant and collector! :mrgreen:
