First of all, being bored I was wondering how do you people go out and buying your issues?
Are you the typical fan that just goes for the crazy/good lucking cover? Or are you the type that enjoys the vibrant shine of the holifoils? Or are do u have too much money and just buy every different issue/cover/variant there is?
I tend to go into the Shiny/The Foil covers as it looks really cool though it kills my wallet, meh! When asked why do I bother with $10/$12 covers compared to the $3/$4 covers, heh how can u not buy those crazy Jo Chen and variant artist Foil Covers. I like issue #5 with that Cel Type Variation. With the normal covers, erm there have been some really good scans which helps cause it helps me when I wanna collect all but am out of cash.
Anyways the main reason why I created this new thread is ask about all of your various collections etc and about any sketches any one got from Alvin/Ken Siu/Arnold/etc.
Well as my daily routine for searching for some Street Fighter Stuff on Ebay. I found one seller (which I think happened to be the peron(s) who had asked Alvin Lee to do like 20 sketches which I mentioned before on Ebay)
The first two I saw were the First two sketches that Alvin Lee did for starters for The Toronto Con. It was Akuma and Chun Li.
The Chun Li ended around $20. The Akuma was about to end around $41 until it Jumped to $100 at the last Min. That was really crazy I thought, though I kno people would pay money for Alvin Lee’s sketches but man $100 american is kinda pricy (at least for me, no job =P )
Recently well just today, I was looking once again and found the same seller with another Akuma sketch and another Chun Li sketch which I kinda thought was familar also. Anyways heh, the seller smarted up and put it at $9.99 and Buy It Now for $69.99. When I clicked on link, both auctions already ended. Man crazy, one guy buying both $70 each.
Talk about major fan craze ( well if i had the money, then maybe I would too)
Anyways in case of anyone who wanted to view the sketches/auction
Here is the links: Though the original first sketches uses the new chun li and akuma sketches
