Especially "dude." And "balls." Those terms work in the tech industry.

It’s amazing how Valiant collectibles have risen in value. Would have loved to pick up those cassette tapes. That’s been my only opportunity.

All this talk of 'snipping' is making me keep my legs crossed.

I seem to recall some discussion on this, an interview with Massarsky or something, some artists' interviews?

Maybe it's lost to the old boards.

I saw one of these in a bargain bin about a year or two ago. It wasn't on my want list, and I didn't buy it. facepalm I am pretty sure that I don't have a copy either. I am also pretty sure that I thought I did have a copy. But now I'm pretty sure that I do not. facepalm facepalm

The good news is, you didn't see one in a bargain bin. You saw the regular edition, free with the Wizard Era Special. It didn't have the silver foil on the front cover.

How do I know? Because every copy of the silver foil edition is in the hands of someone who knows what it is... and 99.99% of copies of this book are regular versions, not silver foil. :)

Oh ok, right on. All I remember is seeing a copy with "Wizard" foil stamping on it of some kind, thinking to myself, "oh I don't remember this" but looking on my want list and thinking "I guess I have it" and I left it there. It was the foil on the cover that specifically caught my eye. I guess I never knew that there were two foil versions!

You sure it wasn't the regular version in the bargain bin? I thought the Wizard version was found a number of years after Valiant folded and was offered by a Board Member here on these boards. I suspect besides what was offered here there likely are not any other copies out there.

100% confident only that I pulled one from the bargain bin and it had foil stamping on it. I remember it explicitly, because I had this want list back and forth with it. But from what Greg said above, it sounds like maybe there's a gold foil version AND this silver foil one. I must've seen the gold foil, which apparently I don't have that either. I should have bought it, but I've been in this "stick to the want list" phase for a couple of years now. I got sick of buying dups.

Greg and I are chatting about this now, and I just realized that no one is going to believe me and my credibility is going to tank hahahhahaahah, But I swear to God I pulled a Wizard foil of this book from a Graham Crackers Comics bargain bin, looked at it, wondered why it had foil and rationalized that it must've all along and I just didn't remember and put it back.

:?

Everyone can take it from there. Go easy on me.

There could be more in existence... but this is the first time it has been said.
