Good morning VGA readers! Today I have some interesting auctions for you. You’ll see some extremely rare Everquest box art signed by the artist, a Metroid Phazon statue, a StarCraft 2 Tychus Findlay statue and some cool extras.
I can’t comment too much on this game other then seeing several friends play this game before me. Everquest was released on the 16th of March 1999. It was a massive online multiplayer role-playing game and had tremendous success until World Of Warcraft came along. But before that this game ruled the rpg multiplayer world. Just ask Akira, he was hooked for a while.
The art work that you see is an extremely rare “Everquest box art by Keith Parkinson. Keith sadly passed away in 2005. This print has long since sold out on his website. This print is a special limited edition of 15 with an extra remark dragon in the lower right corner. This print is #11 of 15. This had been framed and is in mint condition(Print has been removed from the frame and will be shipped in a rolled tube as it was received from the artist)”. Since I never played this the art is of no use to me, but if I did play this game I’ be going nuts! The art work looks so nice, this would definitely look nice on your wall.
The art work, like I said, is extremely nice and considering the artist Keith Parkinson passed away this will only become more rare. The seller has 4 different auctions on eBay right now so pick an choose below:
- Everquest Kunark box art print Keith Parkinson #175
- Everquest Velious box art print Keith Parkinson Signed
- Everquest Luclin box art print Keith Parkinson #2 /1000
- Everquest box art print Keith Parkinson #11 / 15
Next auction up for bid is an extremely rare StarCraft 2 Statue of Tychus Findlay. Here’s my input… there’s 1250 statues in the world. These have been selling for 900+ at the beginning. Now the demand has declined and sellers are still keeping it at 900+… If you reeeeaaallly want this then wait. The price will drop and you’ll have a few auctions that will start at nothing and probably go as high as $500(I might bid ;)). There is no need to get it right now. If there were only 100 made then BUY IT NOW! On top of all this I am still disappointed with Blizzard for waiting 11 years to release the second official StarCraft game. I played this in high school an was HIGHLY addicted. Then brood wars came it just added new maps, a few upgrades… still couldn’t complain. But as a SC fan I was waiting for SC 2 which was talked about back then. I figured for sure it would come out within the next 4 yrs, max 5. Never did… then they decide to release it 11 yrs after. I know they took time to work on it but still, a lot of die hard SC fans moved on. This is one reason why I didn’t buy it. Sometimes you need to release the fan base you have and capitalize on it and from a business perspective they would have made tons more money if it was released 5 yrs earlier.
If your heart is still full of StarCraft love then you might want to make an offer for the StarCraft 2 Tychus Findlay Statue which by the way looks beautiful. It’s made by SideShow collectibles so you know the details doing to be there.
Overpriced Metroid Phazon Statue Grrr… I had a chance to buy this at $120 when they were selling. Then people realized it was nice and bought a ton and now are selling it on eBay for 400+. If you’re like me and reeeeaally want this then I suggest waiting. Dedicate a search and save it so when one pops up you know if it’s a good deal. They will be dropping in price I can guarentee that.
Video Game Watches AWESOME!
