That’s strange. The old Star Wars toys I’ve customized with Sharpies and finger paint and put on Ebay haven’t been selling that well.
Yet ChooseChris found this graffiti-covered version of a classic AT-AT toy from Hasbro that sold for a whopping $1,250 in auction at Christie’s.
From the auction listing:
Customized Hasbro Star Wars vehicle customized by professional Graffiti artists EASE and JK5 under the direction of SUCKADELIC. All tags are written in the Aurebesh language, a fictional letter system created for the in-world use for the 6 Star Wars films. The largest tag on the side of the vehicle spells the word REBEL.
Ok, what exactly does it take to become a “professional Graffiti artist”? ‘Cause I was quite the artistic vandal in my younger years, and I’d be glad to create some one-of-a-kind pieces in the toilet paper and eggs mediums.
Contact my agent with your home address and I’ll line up something special for you.
