Ahh --- yes, I'm sure a good one will come to you soon... I never had the patience to wait for the combo of low price and nice condition/look... the prices some want for these are plain stupid, you'd think some were solid gold. Seems most want the inflated dealer prices when going collector to collector even --- oh well. Most I've had have had their flaws... as long as they display well and it's not too distracting I'm fine with some damage here and there.
Hope your wounds are healing up OK... nice to have this kind of ongoing "project" to fill some time while recuperating! I always find this topic interesting and I'm certainly always glad to help out a fellow forum bravva

Top Shelf Group for Sure! Thanks for being a key part of it. There is a core here on WRF that is pretty special.
Good luck in your search...Kirk.
An absolute necessity for any war room IMHO...

I will continue the search
Assuming you tried JR Meda? he may give you a deal on one...but they are pricey!
I'm in agreement with everyone on this one. It's not saying much but I too have never seen "Ellok" before. I would definitely let this one pass by. Looks bad all around. Doesn't it look like there are letters under that stud?
If interested here's my PS eagle.
Good luck, hope you find a good one soon!
Have not seen before an eagle with Ellok from PS. Normally this concern
had the RZA-code in between the legs of the bird and the PS at the
left wing (as seen from the viewer) with their other eagles.
As so often with PS birds the studs are uncut. Personally I do not like the
reverse and its casting.
Ellok 4502. Not much information was found related to the Elloks and the use
of their birds!!
Rogge: it indeed looks as there are letters under the stud. I think they used
different components to make this eagle!
