    Was the price ever mentioned for this one? I don't think they mentioned it once during the lottery entry info.

    @Headhunter Yeah, the price was posted at the end of the first Instagram post. $250 + shipping.

    Frankly thats not bad for a full painted piece considering its right up there with the marbled meat version price.

    @Headhunter I think it's a fantastic price point for a full painted version. I was lucky enough to photograph this tyrant, and it's pretty damn amazing in hand.

    Well it sure is a hell of a lot better than some of the other overbloated prices iv seen for its variants. Hopefully King Corpse will make some more toned down price runs in the future as well.

    I was wondering if you photographed this one Robert. I love whatever shadowbox you use. It looks like stranger things when 11 is underwater.

    Normally these type of figures aren't my thing but they are just SO GOOD. Come D-Con I'll probably end up trying to get a RR.

    so just in case anyone wants a good eye roll / laugh combo:
    from instinctoy_hiroto_ohkubo's IG:

    The bid total in the end added up to 764,000THB!!!!(about 22,500USD)
    There were a lot of customers joining our auction event for the custom figures at the INSTINCTOY booth at Thailand Toy Expo 2017. All the painted figures received and ended up with the prices that surprised me. I would like to thank all our customers for their participation.
    The prices that customers bid are shown below.
    Neo-Plasma Edition (by Daniel Yu) : 42,000THB / $1,216 USD
    Welcome to the Jungle (by ZEALOT) : 42,000THB / $1,216 USD
    TARLMAN (by P@int Net) : 132,000THB / $3,822 USD
    SeeThings (by Kenth Toy Works) : 72,000THB / $2,085 USD
    Amphetamine Print (by Black Seed) : 162,000THB / $4,690 USD
    Lost Soul (by James Groman) : 120,000THB / $3,474 USD
    Redwood Original (by James Groman) : 35,000THB / $1,013 USD
    Ironclad Edition (by James Groman) : 81,000THB / $2,345 USD
    Jungle Giant (by James Groman) : 75,000THB / $2,172 USD
    I have to say these painted figures have exceeded the limits of being a toy and have ascended to the realm of art. As I am an art toy maker, I am very glad that this auction event was so successful. Please look forward to the next time!

    All of these paint jobs are horrendous :roll: Was it a contest to see who could use the most colors? The bottom 3 are probably the most tolerable but blechhh
    dumbest prices I've seen in a while

    There is no way in hell id ever pay 4000 dollars for one. I honestly feel bad for the guy that bought the middle one for that price.

    This shit is so dumbo. I would say paying $250 - $350 max on any of them would be realistic considering they are one off paint jobs but yeah'..
    Wow, the game has really changed over the years since I've been collecting. Prices keep going up making it harder to afford some of the bigger toys. I still like the $10.00 per inch rule. Nine and ten inch toys should fall in around $100.00 and not $1000.00. So ridiculous.

    I thought $250 for the Marble Meat Rexx was too much for a non painted toy (But it is beautiful ), but those prices are ridiculous. I think I could commission a better color scheme for less

    I got to photograph the Kaiju Killer during Five Points setup. I'll post it here tomorrow when they have an official reveal, but all I've got to say is this is without question James' best, craziest and most bad ass work to date. And that's sayin' a lot.

    I haven't seen any of these in-hand, but enjoy the qualities of the sculpts, and generally Mr. Groman's work.
    Regarding the aftermarket and auction prices of these and other recent toys.... WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK?!?!?!?
    They are still just soft vinyl dolls, right? :?

    I blame NAGs
