HELLO Nakatomi Peoples!

It’s been 6 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide MYSTERY TUBE SALE, and it’s time to once again tempt fate, cast caution to the wind, and DIVE BACK IN FOR THE CRAZY!


Tubes will be for sale  HERE on Tuesday 11/13– see you then!


Tubes are $50 each– Each tube will have 5 prints in it-all suitable for framing.

The quick and dirty is this- you’ll get 5 random prints from Nakatomi artists past and present, and a shot at some really great bonus prints for $50

So, what’s in the pool of awesome that you’ll have a shot at getting this time out?



Each tube will come with one of 3  ‘SHINY OBJECTS’ prints  by artist Tim Doyle, that are exclusive to this tube sale.  You can choose which one you get in your tube!  You can order 3 times, pick a different print for each order, and get the full set.

The Shiny Object prints measure 12×16 and will be signed and numbered by Doyle, and will never be for sale through the Nakatomi site on their own. Edition size determined by the number of orders each print gets!


We’re randomly inserting awesome and unique test-sheet with about half of the orders! A test sheet is like 4 prints flying at your eyes at ONCE! A byproduct of the Silk-screen process, we run screens on scrap paper as we’re working on a project, and what you get is a random collage of color building up on a sheet of paper, until we judge that it’s ‘done’ and throw it on our stack of completed sheets!  No two prints are alike! The Nakatomi Staff made sure each Test print this time around looks SOLID. People who are fans of randomness and the silkscreen process will love ’em! We’ve been printing a lot of METALLICA prints recently, so you’ll see a lot of completely unique Metallica prints in the mix!

FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it.



And speaking of Metallica…over the last few months, we’ve been managing the METALLICA VIP tour poster series, and we have a handful of each one left over.

No tube will have more than one Metallica print.

This is our fave part of the Tube Sale so we’re doing it again! There will be EXACTLY ONE of these- One lucky tube-buyer will receive ONE of EVERY single poster currently in print, that is published by Nakatomi! Literally DOZENS of posters- regular, variant, foil- WHATEVER edition- if we published it, you will get a copy of it.  The winner last time got around 80 prints in the mail! Retail on this alone last time was over $3500.  *- does not actually ship in a tube- this ships flat.


SUPER-CRAZY BONUS PRINT- This print will be inserted randomly into a tube- OMG CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE?!?! Signed and numbered by the artist, almost 10 years old,


You are welcome to buy as many tubes as you want- you will receive a copy of one of the exclusive prints in each tube. Only one tube per order– we cannot combine shipping- as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!

With all this awesome, your odds of striking gold are PRETTY DANG GOOD.  Please note- these tubes will be blind-packed, and we have no idea what prints are in what tubes!

5 prints, $50- you can knock off gifts for 5 people all at once, letting you cruise into birthday/holiday/apocalypse season with no worries!

Get your clicky fingers ready- we’ve never had a Nakatomi tube sale NOT sell out.

TUBES WILL BE FOR SALE HERE at 2pm CENTRAL Tuesday 11/13 on the Nakatomi store! SEE YOU THERE

SHIPPING NOTE- These tubes will all ship by the end of the month and all domestic (US) orders will receive them by Christmas! (Most international orders as well, but you never know with some countries LOOKING AT YOU, SPAIN, WTF?)
