It's a beautiful piece of art and it's worth every penny of that.

No way. It's ridiculous and highlights the couple dozen folks in this hobby who have more money than they know what to do with. You can buy an original high-end piece of hand painted artwork from a well-known artist in this price range. This is a printed piece on plastic that may very well get printed a hundred more times, there is no guarantee. JPop is probably warming up his printer right now. If this was original hand drawn artwork then yes. But it's not.

Pretty judgmental. Maybe somebody doesn't want a piece of "art" that means nothing to them, or they flat-out just don't like that type of art. To each their own. Not sure what other people spending their money on has anything to do with you. Really don't understand peoples need to be so concerned about what others are doing with their money.

Yes, it's totally judgmental, and such black and white extremism is very inflammatory.

Even if you buy seriolithos off a cruise ship or something you have no real guarantee there will not be new editions or new plates.

Jeremy is on the track to being one of, if not THE greatest pinball artist ever IMO and this is his personal proto from his first game. Considering the story behind this piece and it's provenance this is a steal under $2500.

So when someone says this piece is beautiful and totally worth every cent, that's not judgmental? But if someone has a negative opinion and says that a PRINTED piece of artwork on plastic has been over hyped, that's being judgmental? I really don't care how anyone spends their money. But call it what it is. I'm laughing at the valuation and the bidders. I hope JPop does crank up the printer and has another 5 dozen printed. There is nothing stopping him.

Jpop doesn't have the rights anymore. From what Jeremy stated, it was transferred to the Pintasia folks. I love his art. To me it's worth it, but understand it's judgmental. The odds of seeing these prints mass produced are pretty low, though they would sell a shit ton.

What are you basing this on? Someone owns the rights to it. You don't think they want to see a return on their investment? Ever hear of the MM and AFM remakes?

Well seeing as we know there are 2 prototypes. The new buyer has one and Jeremy the second. Any remakes marked as prototypes is a misrepresentation. The value is not in the backglass per se, it's in the history, the uniqueness and the provenance. Would I buy a reprint not marked as a prototype? Yes. Would I pay $3k? No. I wouldn't pay 1/10th that.

It's in this thread. "Ownership of rights" could be debated, but would probably be a legal mess to sort it out. I'm not a lawyer, don't play one on TV, just simply write them checks.

At the end of the day, it's all personal preference and self valuation. I enjoy the art and really wanted to add it to the game room. If Jeremy ever did collector commissioned work like Bluth/Goldman and a few others over the years, he would make the community super happy and could establish an additional revenue stream. I'd gladly pay $xxxx for some cool one off Yeti art.

But if it's time to close the chapter on MG, let's help support him (it's probably cathartic) and enjoy his new art on upcoming titles and be thankful.

Check this one out. A Newman sold a few years ago for 43 Mil. It's a blue canvas with a white line. http://nypost.com/2013/05/15/43-8-million-for-this/

In comparison to this Newman, Yeti's work looks to be worth between 1 Gorillian and 2 Brazilian dollars.

No, but you'd pay $50/$100 and so would 100 other people thus dropping the value of the original item way down (Similar to things Dayhuff has said/experienced)

You said it yourself, for most people the value is not in the backglass. So if you can get the history (conversation piece that looks cool), why not get the $50/$100 one? This is the thought process of most people. Once that happens the original backglass loses a little bit of it's monetary and special value as unfortunate and sad as that is. I don't even think this is entirely relevant head-on to your argument but it was worth noting.

He can make a lot of money, he'd make that $3,000 easy - but contrary to what you think, it would be by mass-production rather than one piece.

Wow like something to be proud to own.

What a waste....

I meant that's so cool !!

#73 2 years ago

I don't understand some people...there is more angst that this backglass brought 3k on eBay than the fact that Jeremy was never compensated for his work and the rights possibly transferred to someone else for financial gain. Can we not just be glad that he was able to salvage a small portion of his financial loss from this project?

Is that the wife and her hot girlfriend helping a guy celebrate his birthday? If so, Ill take that over the backglass anyday...

The dude never got the machine he was supposed to get that he spent years working on, and has outstanding invoices that were never paid. And people are going to complain that some rich guy sees value in his art and is going to put a little bit back in his pocket? Some people.
