Eric So Sprite figures:

(viewed 6172 times)

another way in which i'm turning the page - i'm cleaning out my closet.

in the late 90's i got into collecting vinyl figures from Hong Kong toy designers like Michael Lau (Gardener) and Eric So, and UK guys like Pete Fowler (Monsterism) and James Jarvis (Silas / AMOS), amongst loads of Kubricks and other such things. i managed to acquire some pretty rare pieces.

anyway, to cut a long, boring story very short, i'm selling up. most of this is probably going onto ebaY, but if anyone is into this stuff (alfie, bmal etc.) and interested in putting in bids on stuff beforehand, just drop me a line. i've got *alot of stuff to sell.

these figures are a set of eight that Eric So created as part of a Sprite promotion. they were never available to buy - you had to collect ringpulls to get hold of them! i have them all with boxes intact, so, you know what to do if interested...

I really like this set Nige, take em off you I reckon! Are you going to put together a little catalogue? Would love to have a look at any other vinyl you're releasing.

Long and boring that it might be, why the clearout ?

aaaahhh! thought you might like these! i'm in the middle of putting together a list, sure. I'll get it to you.

why the clearout? i just have too many possessions. over the years i've accumulated so many things. all my friends just tended to piss their money up the walls; i bought stuff! i'm at a point where i just want to cut back on everything except the things that are most important to me.

i've had all of my figures in boxes for, quite literally, years. much as i love them, i'd rather they go to a good home where they'll be more appreciated, knoworramean?

sounds like you are in an interesting place and you're not trying to say you didn't piss money up walls are you?
