    Macross/Animation Cel Collection Thread

    That'd be an interesting place to work.

    Another throwback image saved to my computer in 2006, and a similar fan cel I bought in 2008.

    Here's an image I have saved in one of my cel folders on my computer. I think it is a scan from one of the old Mandarake BWA catalogues shared with me by someone on the RS chat from back in the day, but I don't remember for sure. The file was created in 2007 so the BWA was likely from that year. It has been quite a while since I've seen anything else of this quality offered for sale.

    @Fortress_Maximus look at the dates updated on the right side of the main page. There is a clickable section for each. The second one down is the one of interest. P.S. My comments from before still apply. My suggestion is we spend a little time on this thread sharing artwork instead of commenting on the behavior of others. So who is next to share a pic of something? Something new, something old, something from your wishlist. Something that was offered for sale some time ago that you regret not jumping on. Anything!

    Well we can leave it right there on AB thank you. I think it is the second section down in the gallery if I remember correctly. It doesn't have a regular series title.

    I am not sure who Mokky is, but there is nothing private in the gallery. The "secret" items have their own section in the main gallery.

    I'm not sure. I got them from a private collector. If you can find the section in my gallery there are more.

    JV you are still commenting about people instead of sharing something. Here is the companion piece to my previous share. They have been in my RS gallery for years. You just have to know where to look. And yes these are the originals by Kawamori, not copies.

    Well my intention was to start a string of people sharing something from their collection. May I humbly suggest we take a break for a little bit from commenting on the conduct of others and get back to sharing the enjoyment of this common interest we have. So only posts of artwork for a while please. Who is next?

    So who has something cool to share from their collection? Here is one of my prized items from a "secret" section of my RS gallery.

    I don't have a simple answer to that. To my mind the word unethical is a very serious thing. Is all misrepresentation being unethical? I don't think so. Is telling someone they are 6 feet tall when they are only 5' 8" unethical? It would depend on what their motivation in doing so was I guess. What were they trying to obtain by misrepresenting themselves? To reach the level of being unethical the misrepresentation would have be purposely trying to harm someone. If such a think was taking place around the activity of this forum then yes I would say the misrepresentation was unethical.

    I have no personal knowledge of anyone misrepresenting themselves here. I don't follow the discussions that closely, nor what their activities off this site might be. I take it you are talking about elrdf? It is ok to name him. If we are going to discuss it we can be clear about who it is we are talking about. So I don't know what exactly he has done, or you believe him to have done, that you find unethical. My only dealings with him have been personal messages he has sent me attempting to buy things from my collection. We couldn't come to a deal and that was the end of it. I understand he is selling a few cels on Ebay to finance a more recent purchase but beyond that I don't know anything else about him. How exactly has he misrepresented himself?

    Absolutely, share all the knowledge that is out there. Inform people that there are other source for cels, at lower prices, than what is currently being offered on Ebay. I am all for that. Taking it a step further and drawing conclusions on the ethics of the people posting those Ebay sales? That is where I have a difference of opinion.

    It is perhaps true that people paying high prices for cels are doing so from an uninformed position, but no one is forcing them to spend that money. They think the product is worth the amount being paid. The fact that they are unaware that they could have gotten it elsewhere for a lower price, like directly from YJ instead of from the Ebay reseller, is a different issue. That is an entirely other base economic discussion I remember having in a college philosophy class. The bottom line in my opinion is that they are willing to pay the price they did. Are the Ebay resellers taking advantage, in a manner of speaking, of this ignorance? Perhaps. Does that make me think as low of them as others here do? I don't think so.

    To make myself more clear, I totally get the displeasure people have over the fact that the activity of scalpers generally increases the price of cels that all of us have to pay. I get it. I really do. But it is not something I personally feel as strongly about as others seem to. As I said in my prior post, I don't have a right to any of these cels nor to any particular price on them. I'll pay what I am willing to pay, and if someone else is willing to pay more, more power to them! I don't "need" to have that cel.
