Well damn if that doesn't make me feel old!

For the NYC crowd: Billionaire Boys' Club has an exclusive version of the big guy available as of 12pm today. I quite like the chains, but not enough to buy a whole new toy.
love the color and vinyl aesthetics in this release.
Damn, this went FAST, like less than 1 hour! Almost like in the old days...
This is some bs! As soon as I got the secret base email, I went to their site and it was sold out!
^ It's clear & it's pink. I think people hesitate on the marbled stuff because of the pour variable but for a release like this they are going to go quick.
I Actually Went To Their Site Before I Got The Email. Saw It And Got It!
This happened to me recently when they sent out notifications for a lottery. I think I received mine 1-2 minutes before the cutoff. Some newsletter applications provide an option to stagger deliveries to avoid setting off spam filters. They might have something like that enabled.
Got a phone call while I was sleeping from a buddy. Thankfully the wife heard it and woke me up.
So good. Guess I'll have to lurk the aftermarket for this one. Not too pressed; as beautiful as the whole package is my first thought was that I'd love to use the head and arms for mashups. One of the lucky owners, please do this so I can live vicariously through you
Could your friend call me too next time?
I heard it was more like three phone calls before you eventually woke up
Oh well, hope it'll have a comeback, like all the latest, which amazingly all are still available (again).
I doubt that very much but we can all hope.
word on the street is that some already got this
$25 micro figures?! Com'on...
Fuck you Hiddy. Is Secret Base even relevant anymore. Did the price of hamburgers go up in Japan to feed your fat face
Brutal I think it was 2 micros for $25
I wanted to order but the price did feel a bit too much for my blood. Cute pours tho
Man Secret Base used to be one of the best. Now they're basically another licensed toy company... Pushead, 1/1 skulls and Ms. Mysterious are all they got left thats interesting anymore. Sourpuss mode ended.
i love the micro infection monsters, i think 25 for 2 marbled figures is a very good price, considering marble basically doubles the manufacturing cost. I'm sure he has a multi-mold but you can't even get a mini figure pulled in japan anymore for less than 10 bucks.
I think SB is still riding strong with the large astro boys and mazingers, it's not my cup of tea, but it's definitely kept him in the hyped toy makers league with 1000 dollar figures on the after market.
I checked and with shipping to Europe it doubled the cost. So 25 for the two figures plus 25 for shipping. Not a bad price for both and I’m glad I checked, shipping just a bit steep there
And I still think Secret Base are putting out good toys even if a bit of it is just hype
there wouldn’t be pushead access to the plebes without these cats putting them out so that’s a plus
licenses is what keeps the thing afloat so let’s not kid ourselves that his is a venture for love only
My hope is that in the upcoming year we might see a return of the Skullbee and Skullbrain to mark their 20th anniversary...
