'Dubai Collection' - high end auction

Postby scooternick » Fri Jul 27, 2018 9:25 pm

Hi

A lot of you have probably heard about this already - apologies in advance. This auction is happening next week and the owner is from Dubai! This link to the auction may illustrate how rare the red Bib is (ref. thread posted last week asking about it). It did make me think - is this one of the lamest characters within the ultra rare category of figures?! Spending upwards of $28k is one thing, but on a Bib Fortuna.......fuck that.

Burgundy is red, is there two different shades of red for these figures?

Burgundy is Lili Ledy, red is prototype/pre production.

I have 2 sealed original Pokemon packs, maybe I should open them and hope to find one. :shock:
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!
