Hi folks, just wanted to share the latest little gem I acquired from across the Atlantic today.

 

https://www.ebay.co....=p2047675.l2557

 

Am so pleased with this as I've always admired the sculpt, and like this particular colour he's in (much similar to neon purple Series 1). Sure feels good to own a rare MIMP in a rare colour!  :p

 

But that's not the only thing however. I found out that the figure itself is soft rubber rather than hard plastic as originally expected. Which leads me to believe there are so many more variables out there that we don't even know of yet. Bloody confusing if you ask me!!  :wacko:

 

All I know is that all odd numbered were hard and the even numbered were soft (at least that's what I've been told by fellow MIMP enthusiasts and collectors). In fact wasn't there a discussion about this a few years ago? I'm sure somebody mentioned some BigBoy Centaurs both with and without bracelets on his arms.

 

Who know's, maybe one day we'll discover that both Orobas AND Blemmyea were included in this promo afterall. Now what a discovery that would be!  :woot:

 

Ya never know, stranger things have happened. Let me know what y'all think anyway.

 

:thanks: "Ant"

Awesome purchase bud! I haven’t bought any series 3 for a couple of years now as I can’t just collect one line and keep spending money on other stuff, but I’d love to add a tyrian purple BB to my collection one day - especially a Jimmy. And yes, BB Centaur can be found both with and without bracelets.

Hi Burty, yeah I was surprised I got it for the price it went for tbh. Literally one dollar below my max bid. Very easily coulda gone the other way!  :sweat:

 

It's a very nice colour and my fave out of all the BB's. I'd say it's about on par with Shreddies Blue in regards to rarity. Hence why I'd never bid on an unopened BB packet in case I didn't get a Tyrian Purple figure inside. The others are much too similar to Shreddies colours in my humble opinion (especially Rose Pink/Magenta).

 

All that's left for me to get is a sealed Jimmy in Shreddies Green. The most difficult quest I've had so far on my MIMP journey.  :(

I have a complete Shreddies set, but still don't have a single BB Pink sculpt. I never see them listed.

I know several people that have big boy duplicates in the same color and sculpt but one is soft and one is hard. I would assume it's possible to find them either way in any color or sculpt. But it's just about impossible to say for sure. I've also seen a big boy centaur with no bangles.
