Nakatomi Mystery Tube Sale Coming This Week

Hold on to your keyboards folks it's happening again, the Nakatomi Mystery Tube sale is coming. Some how Nakatomi makes each Mystery Tube Sale better than the last one with all the goodies they include.

It’s been 6 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide TUBE SALE, and people’s wounds have almost healed, and so they’re ready to go again.

They have more tubes than ever before- about 250 already packed with a few more tubes-worth of prints waiting on stand-by…so hopefully those who want one can get one!

Starting somewhere between noon and 2pm CENTRAL TIME on TUESDAY the 30th, they’ll have tubes for purchase for $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. One print in each tube will be the final print in their portrait series by Tim Doyle that will never be available for purchase separately!

Test Sheets! They’re randomly inserting a totally awesome and unique test-sheet with orders!

“Unreal Estate” Scratch prints! Just about EVERY print from the Unreal Estate art show at SpokeArt in February was printed with a split fountain (the fade in the sky) and split fountains can be tricky to get just right. SO- they have about 40 of these (spread across 10 different images) that were just not perfect enough to make the cut, but too pretty to trash.

EXCLUSIVES!- stuff only available in THIS TUBE SALE!-
Not only do they have a smattering of the GreySkull print that was only available to attendees of the SpokeArt show back in Feb, but they’ve got 5 AP copies of Doyle’s ‘King of Baltimore’ Gold Foil edition, Never-Before- Seen 6 copies of Metallic Silver Oversized Edition of the Transformers Show Poster (edition of only 7!), they’ve got a HEAVY wood panel version of Doyle’s Deadwood Unreal Estate print that was never released (edition of 10), and that small one in the middle was a KRAMPUS holiday print for a portfolio that didn’t come together last year, that Doyle was a part of. None of these prints will ever be for sale on Nakatomi!

Original Tim Doyle Art. 12 original pencil and ink drawings done by Doyle that they’re throwing into this sale! Pictured below is original art from gigposters for Appleseed Cast, MC Chris, The Bellfuries, along with the drawing for The Fifth Element movie poster, stuff for SpokeArt and a ton more.

Plus a perfectly good copy of the Stainless Steel Change into a Truck from a while back. Guess they’re throwing that in there too!

Plus Mondo movie posters too. From Doyle’s personal collection, and stuff they just got in through trades and whatnot- they’re throwing in 5 of these long-gone old school Mondo posters. They could re-sell, em- but hey- they’d rather just give them to YOU.

This is only a small selection of what’s going in these tubes, with plenty more surprises!

Nakatomi will put these up for sale at a random time between noon and 2pm Central Time on Tuesday 4/30- and then tweet the sale link a few minutes later. You can follow Tim Doyle on twitter HERE.
PS- there is a slight chance they might do a super-late / early morning mini-sale of these to help out international folks over the weekend. That will be announced when it happens on Twitter.
