Natas blind bags
« on: February 19, 2021, 11:23:29 AM »
Was anyone actually able to get one? I tried my local, NHS, and basically any shop I could think. Super bummed.....

They were supposed to be 'live' at 7am, bunch of shops broke the street time by selling after midnight; scalpers with bots, of course, bought most of that shit...go look at eBay...sucks; I was going to drop for a few of them for wall hangers.

I missed several of the midnight and 9am drops, but somehow snagged one from a skatewarehouse promo email saying they were available.  Felt bad ordering from SW on "skate shop day" but I did also place an order thru NJ skateshop today so it balances out I guess.

The photo sequence deck is so sick. Don't know why I didn't anticipate them being this coveted, but I guess I missed my shot.

That's the one I was hoping to get.

I somehow lucked out after trying to order from different shops early morning online. Ended up getting on on Tactics website. Those things were selling within 30 seconds of release time on every shops site. Cant wait to see which one i got though!

I wasn't going to do it... alas...

I was third in the line at opening time (noon) at a low key shop that only had 3 in stock. I lucked out and got the one I wanted...  The two dudes in front of me weren't so stoked on the ones they got.

You got the best one in my opinion. I'm hoping to get that one as well. I'm not sure how i feel about the all gold and all silver ones. Maybe they are better in person.

Dude in front of me got a silver one and I fondled thee gold one in another store. They did nothing for me but one owner was into them. If i'd got the gold or silver I would have skated it or sold it.

We sold ours in person only, 1 per customer.
The amount of calls and dm's was crazy, like a dunk.
I got one and got the photo board, that was my top choice, very stoked.
The gold and silver ones didn't do anything for me, most customers opened theirs in store and I didn't see any of the limited ones.
I wasn't trying to put them on our site and have someone try to buy them all.
NHS should have done an apparel drop with them, photo t shirt and hoodie along with classic panther gear in new colors would have sold so well.

What trucks would be best to set up on this?
Indy 159? 169? 215? Ace 66?

^159 or 169 most likely

I got two so I can set one up and hang one.

They went pretty fast everywhere but they must have made thousands of these

I legit want to get one more and set up the ugliest of the three then hang the other two.

50 per design was only on the signed ones and the DIY art ones that Natas did himself. Then there was the OG 1 of 1. There were probably thousands of the main six variants.

I'd probably ride 159s with some wide 80s style wheels.

Which ones are you guys thinking of actually setting up?

I used to skate an older Natas reissue and used 159s and 56mm wheels. Such a fun ride

Yeah, NHS was basically printing money with these things, and I say that as someone who bought one.

Nice. I have 159s on an old board. I might pair it with OJ Nomads.

I thought I heard the dude at calsk8 say 700 per design, but don't quote me on that as I was chasing my son around the store

So this is sorta related and mostly occurred to me when I looked to see what the different graphics in the bag might be but does anyone know why the reissue graphic is different then the graphic as it was originally issued? See the super rare NOS board on the bag for an example of what I'm talking about. It looks like it's been completely redrawn even if the composition is the same and then the monster arm and orb were added. From what Frank and Fred posted, they did reissue the OG graphic at one point but it's been the redrawn one only for some time now. I would love to know the story there.

EDIT: Now that I looked at F&F's pic again, it looks like they added a digital coloring or airbrush effect to the OG graphic too so maybe that counts as a redraw as well.
Also if i thought a mob of yewwing sweaty californians were about to wrap me up in a pabst-scented covid group hug I'd start pushing the fuck out of there too
