    I'd be curious to see how the process for this style of marbling is vs. the traditional sofubi style. It definitely looks way more like tie-dye, which isn't a bad thing!

    Its going to be through Unbox or through Retrobands website? I have not had any luck with Retrobands website. At least i have a chance with Unbox if its done through that.

    Should be a much larger run than the usual Retroband release

    Unbox sold the Gristle on their site before, so it'll probably be on theirs

    I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on one of these bad boys.. That sculpting is absolutely mental along with that "marbling..."

    He's definitely going to be tough to hide from the wifey (I said that I'd take a break after the PK show last weekend... :twisted:)

    Unfortunately I think you better be quick on the draw Noel. Have you tried before? I have not, so I dunno but I have a feeling it will be quick.

    Well i got my Marbled meat and it also sold out within a minute. Hope everyone got one and it also leaves me to wonder just how many were actually produced through Unbox.

    Email that listing and location to unbox, I'm sure they will cancel the order and put it back up or reach out to someone who missed.

    Im clearly just salty, but yeah I agree that sites should have it so once you add to your cart you're safe to check out for 10 mins. I was there on time and refreshed perfectly but just fumbled the check out process. Hit finalize order and it said there is nothing in your cart bitchass. Lol

    But that cart holding crap gets annoying though to. I cant tell you how many times iv seen an item for sale you cant buy because some one is playing the cart holding game.

    Some people have already received their Mutant Marbled Meats already. I haven't received tracking yet, so I emailed Unbox. I was told that they are being released in waves and that apparently the Hong Kong office is on holiday today so I should receive tracking in the next 24 hours. Just thought I'd give you a heads up if you haven't received a tracking email yet.

    As someone that has bought a LOT of stuff from Unbox, don't worry about shit getting lost at all. They always keep some in reserve for mail fuckery. Dan is honestly one of the most pleasant, customer-centric merchants I have ever dealt with online. He will always do you right.

    That's who I received the email from this morning. :thumbsup:

    Considering the shipping was $30, there's no doubt in my mind that my package is secure..
