    I legit had a dude who when I asked what he wanted for a trade he said "what would make me more popular"

    I felt kind of sad for him

    True to a sense. I guess it just matters based on the circumstances. I had 3 of the 13 Lash Bop Dragons at one time. reason being is they were in a couple of members BST listing for a while and even price drops before I bought the other 2. It was an amazing piece to me, and i figured it shouldn't sit unsold when it was $60. so I ended up with 3. couple years go by, MVH popularity arose, and I released 2 back into the wild at retail. That being said, it's the one time i can recall me owning multiples of something that was considered scarce. Some "collectors" try and say one is depriving others of the art because they have amass a large collection. even if its of one sculpt in multiple colorways, some will say this is hoarding. Usually though, it's those bitter that they don't even have one, or are new to the community and have this " I want it, so I deserve it now" mentality. I'm sure the conversation can continue for hours upon this subject... i guess it just depends on the situation. However, I don't think anyone needs to hoard a specific run of toys. LE of 3, I NEED ALL 3.

    We go through this time and time again, yes he has multiple but he also offers quite a bit of money for everything he has. Trust me, he has offered me cash for some stuff. We can cry all we want that he has 2-3 of something but we have to remember that someone is selling these to him. They are also part of the problem if not the true problem.

    At least the people bitching about not having a chance to buy are somewhat honest. It's pointless and short-sighted, but it's better than those disingenuous "omg thank you sooooo much this is the best toy ever" while they try to sell or trade it. I know dudes who take a bunch of photos of toys and then post them after they sell the fucking things hoping they can continue tricking the artist into thinking they are super fans. On the positive side word of shitty behavior gets around pretty quick.

    They are only selling because he is offering stupid money. I suppose this is a bit of a "chicken or the egg" situation admittedly, but no one can sell without a buyer. If these didn't flip for so much and people were selling at cost no one would really care about aftermarket.

    I was going to say, the most irritating part of all this is thinking they aren’t real fans. Then you mention he is a fan that takes good pictures. But then I think, would they really be a fan if insert artist name wasn’t so fucking hyped?

    I really think about because I started buying Real Head just because I really liked how goofy and hard they looked. At the time collectors seemed to be getting bored of them.

    So are you a fan if you start collecting only because of hype?

    Theirin lies the crux . . . the vast majority of stuff seems to be disappearing into the new Asian market never to be seen again (other than Instaspam obviously). These guys buy, buy, buy but seldom sell or trade!

    In a weird way it's simplifying the buying process for me. Go to a Death's Vault show now and you can get something very cool with relative ease while hanging out with good people. It's a welcome change of pace from the throat slitting backdoor bullshit of the IG aftermarket.

    Yep, stuff rarely seems to migrate back across the Pacific. However, I think collectors in China sell or trade as frequently as the next guy, but we're not in those marketplaces. Sales would happen to other nearby collectors first, the same way we generally do. And with no presence on WeChat, I'm sure I miss a great many aftermarket sales.

    There's a demographic component too: I can't or don't want to buy fancy things flipped, so even if I were keyed into Chinese markets for those toys it wouldn't make a difference. The more interesting observation to me is that the "flipped" price becomes the standard if almost every collector in your region paid that anyway. Sure there's gradual appreciation, but in general I think the big profits only happen in 1-2 legs of a toy's journey. The guys making a lot of money on it (relatively speaking) are probably western collectors for the most part :roll:

    Wait, that's not what being a "completist" means?!? Owning all of them?!

    I've had duplicates sometimes due to buying lots, which I'm sure has happened to a lot of people also. I think this reason is probably fading away though as sales of groups of toys seem to appear less and less.

    I’ve had a few pretty aggressive messages sent my way in the past for how many Cinema Monsters I have, but not a single one is the same, which is kind of my save grace. I’d see no reason to have more than one of the exact same version, and I find that to be the truest way of keeping something away from collectors, rather than me having whatever singular version I can manage. When it particularly comes to hype toys, though, that’s when it’s the only time it seems to matter. No one gives a shit that I could have anywhere between two and five of the exact same Obake Dog(even out of 76, I still don’t), but if it’s the aforementioned in the thread it suddenly raises eyebrows. It’s an interesting dynamic.

    I think many people get more worked up about owning doubles if the toys are rare because of the hoops they have to go through to get said artist sempai to notice them/score while someone else rubs it in their face. If the artist is less guaranteed to sell out instantly everytime then maybe they fans see owning doubles of a toy as doing a favour for the artist via financial support. Mind you those having trouble with hype doubles are most likely clout chasers themselves but I do see the worth in spreading toys amongst the scene rather than being a pig trying to hog shit. Would the artist themselves be against it? I guess not many are outspoken about it so there's currently no "official" wrong or right way to collect. All I know is:

    ^ Gospel, and who knew the Chili People could be utilized to help make a cogent point?

    Moving along...

    Did you ever have a massive stack of interrelated and overlapping fuck yous that you desperately wanted to shout from the mountain top but, living in the flatlands, were too conscious of the health and well-being of your immediate neighbors to let rip in the midday sun of Main Street?

    Yes . . . so 10 years ago, as the UK slipped into austerity and with a young family in tow, I told my business partner (via a very good lawyer) to go fuck himself . . . and started my own business! #bestdecisionever

    Vent away . . . rage is goooood!
