Skipped putting it on the wall and put it together instead. Was a fun ride to 7-Eleven.

Super bummed looking at eBay right now. I'm glad there was hype but, guess I'll never have one on the wall. If anyone wants to trade their sequence board for Natas kitten reissue let me know.

watch ebay like a hawk the next few days when people start getting theirs in the mail. the photo sequence should be pretty cheap, seems to be one of the designs people dont like. a few sold for $100 already which is barely a premium over new. it will bottom out maybe even at cost and then probably start going up again when the supply dies off after awhile.

Great marketing idea by the Santa Cruz crew. I totally lucked out in coming across this promo the day before it happened and calling up a shop and scoring one of the boards over the phone. Picked it up yesterday and actually got the one I liked (gold foil and metallic). The shop I purchased it from did it right by limiting one per customer and not selling them until their usual business hours. www.a51.ca

Disappointing to see some people able to buy more than one from shops in one transaction. I can understand and even appreciate contacting various outlets trying to score more. Even worse when seeing what appears to be a shop manager taking video of staff opening the bags up and stacking them on the counter.

I'm now hoping more companies follow and do the limited runs like this

This wasn't Santa Cruz's first time. They did something like this a few years ago with Garbage Pail Kids - I missed out on those.

But I kind of agree and disagree with companies doing limited runs like these. It'll become a bad habit and it'll become the Dunk SB fiasco all over. Making use of every bit of nostalgia graphic while resellers take everything and the people who want them won't be able to get them.

I think limited releases can be fun however nowadays everyone thinks they can be a reseller. Iím so sick of bots and resellers. Limited releases for me have lost all the fun

And for all those who missed out, I saw this when I went looking at #natasblindbags

So much for one each. 

As I really wasn't interested, I hadn't seen much if any of the lead up to this release, but it would appear that after I did a little research, there are a lot of people who were keen and missed out, and then there are others who have bought and are stoked they got one, or two, or twenty?!?!?

Ok, whatever...

Like the dude that made a post with the 40 PS5s he scored using bots so he can resell.

Comes off looking more like a twat than anything else.

Hardflip from last night. Iím really having fun on this setup. Iíve skated it after work pretty much everyday this week. Flips pretty easily too which I was not expecting. This thing is gigantic and small at the same time. Iím going to swap out the 215s for some ace 66. Anyone else skating theirs?

Apparently some European shops, like Furtivo, are going to get them with a few weeks of delay.

They said first week of March, finally something like this that gets to Europe too...
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

Wheels Of Fire was the first skate video I ever got as a kid.  Stoked to see Natas still getting shine over 30 years later.

I got two in the mail today.
Managed to grab a third this weekend at a shop where they set a few aside quietly.

I like the silver foil a lot more in person than I thought I would.

Mine arrived today.  I got the photo sequence one, which was probably my 2nd-choice behind the teal prismatic one (and of course behind the other super-limited variants)

Got the photo board today too.  Was kinda hoping for this one.  I have two other Natas wall hangers, and having something with his actual skating on it will round those out nicely from a decor perspective

I got my blind bag the other day and opened it to find the Silver Foil deck. Not gonna lie... I'm not digging this deck. Anyone want to trade the silver foil deck for... whatever you have?

I legit think the silver and gold are the most set up decks. As people cared for them the least.

Everyone knows everything Natas makes goes directly to Satan. My parents confirmed this 20+ years ago.

Like Charlie and the chocolate factory, the golden ticket had to turn up sooner or later.

Was the 1 of 1 from Natas himself (as it it came from his own collection of his old first issue decks) or am I thinking of some other Natas deck that was of interest recently?

Either way not a worry and yes those things are ridiculous in price and collectable value.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

It wasn't from Natas himself. NHS bought it off some board collector guy last year for 3,500 so they could add it in 1 of the blind bags. Seems like the guy sold it for very little seeing how big this blind bag thing turned out to be. I think he should of got closer to 10 grand for it.

That is pretty cool - thanks for posting!

And yes looking back at it, I would think that with all the hype it is definitely worth a lot more than that right now, but if the hype dies down, things might go back to normal.

Maybe the most anyone would have paid for a single deck even though there are ridiculous things on ebay going well over $25,000 asking price, a McGill just sold for $5,259 but surely something even harder to get would be worth a lot more?

Not my top choice in what i wanted, but i cant complain when the whole point was to get a surprise colorway. seeing it in person definitely made me appreciate this variant way more though. The pictures don't really do it justice. Very hard to capture what your eyes actually see in person.
