So I took my son and daughter to go to Mr. Bunks residence to pick up some final art I purchased. With traffic and my kids we showed up a half hour late, sorry Tom. Tom lives in a nice area and humbly in a artists enclave. His house is littered with his artwork everywhere. It's a dream we've all had, tons of original artwork everywhere. His obvious favorites nicely framed and positioned nicely as one would do with a family photo. If you could imagine an artist as a mad scientist this is Tom Bunk. I mean this in a cool and respectful way, there's not a mean bone in this mans body. He's got the eccentric long hair, projects strewn everywhere, just an awesome setup. I wish I could have hung out there for more than the hour we stole from him. You could see something new in every direction, each time you look. Magazines piled 30-40 high, paint everywhere, artist supplies everywhere. A GPK OS3 Joe Blow card front and center on his desk and a cutout of Adam Bomb, looked like it came from a FB2 box. He was awesome to my kids and I, very gracious and paid attention to there questions. We felt as invited guests and quickly became comfortable. You get a sense of how hard it is to be an artist, looked like several jobs going at once, must be difficult to switch gears and meet deadlines with creativity of this nature. Toms a proud man, his work is definitely important to him but not a braggart. I have to say overall a great once in a lifetime experience. Oh, btw a cabbage patch kid so he could reference the facial features, you can see it in the photo below. Thanks Tom for a great memory and best to you! Keir

Jimbo: FB is lame brah. Most "collectors" there are just buying whatever BS Flopps puts out. There in no room for institutional knowledge to be shared because posts on FB drop off so fast. Everyone is busy looking for a "purple bruised parallel" of some lame

Dxtc: I know I was gone for a long time but when the hell did new GPK collectors get so stupid? Just asking I go on facebook want to blow my brains out reading some posts scratch that most posts. How did the collective knowledge of the UG not translate elsewhere

liquidfox: Those are different than the mini boxes. UKM:the mini boxes were super small boxes of OS1 that were put on a card inside a bubble like an action figure would have been. Each one contained 48 mini wax packs and 5 cards per pack.
