HELLO Nakatomi Peoples!
TUBES ARE NOW SOLD OUT!
It’s been 6 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide MYSTERY TUBE SALE, and it’s time to once again tempt fate, cast caution to the wind, and DIVE BACK IN FOR THE CRAZY!
TUBE SALE WILL BE ON TUESDAY 5/17 at 2pm CENTRAL TIME
PLEASE NOTE– we’ve never NOT sold out of a Tube Sale- so be ready!
Tubes are $50 each– Each tube will have 5 prints in it-all suitable for framing. Some are considered ‘scratch/dent’ in that there’s minor printing flaws or a ‘soft’ corner, but nothing that won’t frame out.
The quick and dirty is this- you’ll get 5 random prints from Nakatomi artists past and present, and a shot at some really great bonus prints for $50
So, what’s in the pool of awesome that you’ll have a shot at getting this time out?
We will have a brand new print that will never be available for sale on Nakatomi site!
Every tube ordered will get one. There will be a special variant of this new print- randomly allocated in these tubes as well! The variant will be approximately 12% of the entire numbered run!
If you totally want to be spoiled as to what the mystery print is- feel free to CHECK OUT OUR INSTAGRAM.
GET AS MANY AS YOU WANT
You are welcome to buy as many tubes as you want- you will receive a copy of one of the exclusive print in each tube. Only one tube per order– we cannot combine shipping- as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!
DEATH TO HUMANS!
About 75% of the tubes will have test sheets this time around!
We’re randomly inserting a totally awesome and unique test-sheet with orders! A test sheet is like 4 prints flying at your eyes at ONCE! Truly a byproduct of the Silk-screen process, we run screens on scrap paper as we’re working on a project, and what you get is a random collage of color building up on a sheet of paper, until we judge that it’s ‘done’ and throw it on our stack of completed sheets! No two prints are alike!
We did something special with the Test Sheets this time, and ran a special screen that’s JUST for test sheets on about 1/2 of them- the only way you’re going to get one of these ‘DEATH TO HUMANS’ prints is through this tube sale!
Here’s a look at a few more-
We’ve also got a good chunk of our normal random test sheets-
I really dig that Josh Budich ‘Snoopy’ print on top of a Coachella print by Doyle on the bottom right there!
FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it, if at all!
VERY SPECIAL “MAILMAN WILL HATE YOU” TICKET!
This was such a hit last time, we’re doing it again! There will be EXACTLY ONE of these- One lucky tube-buyer will receive ONE of EVERY single poster currently in print, that is published by Nakatomi! That means ALL Tim Doyle’s prints, Bernie Wrightson’s prints, and many, many more. Literally DOZENS of posters- regular, variant, foil- WHATEVER edition- if we published it, you will get a copy of it. The winner last time got WELL OVER 100 prints in the mail. Retail on this alone last time was over $4000.
SUPER CRAZY BONUS TIME PRINTS-
Along with all the stuff above, we’re also randomly inserting some crazy-rare prints and art pieces!
Above is pictured 5 AP copies of the foil edition of ‘We Scared Each Other Pretty Good’ from UnReal Estate 4- which was never offered for individual sale!
We’re also including 7 copies of Josh Budich’s ‘Rise to Meet Fate’ WOOD EDITION prints from last year!
And one lucky so-and-so will get this SUPER RARE Akira print by Tyler Stout! We picked this up from an ex-Mondo/Alamo Drafthouse employee, and again- JUST GIVING IT AWAY.
Aftermarket value on these top out at over $1600…don’t say I didn’t ever give you guys nothing!
Also- did we mention- the corners…THEY ARE SHARP!
With all this awesome, your odds of striking gold are PRETTY DANG GOOD. Please note- these tubes will be blind-packed, and we have no idea what prints are in what tubes!
5 prints, $50- you can knock off gifts for 5 people all at once, letting you cruise into birthday/holiday/apocalypse season with no worries!
Get your clicky fingers ready- we’ve never had a Nakatomi tube sale NOT sell out- we’re may start a little early or late with the drop time, as we’ve had massive server issues during these high-demand drops in the past. Last time though- it went like a BREEZE, so who knows?
DELIVERY/ SHIPPING NOTE- THESE TUBES ARE ALREADY PACKED, SO WE’LL HOPEFULLY HAVE THEM ALL OUT THE DOOR THE SAME WEEK THEY GO ON SALE!
