Guess we're still waiting on that Blue Eyes...and Yohko I am suprised to see there have not been many graphics produced for Hook-Ups this year. Seems Jeremy has been re-issuing some decks from these last few years' line-ups over and over again. Perhaps he has been focusing on producing the limited JK Industires decks and collabs with BAKA for the moment.

They still look good, though a background would have been a better choice than stained veneers in my opinion. I was suprised to see @bakasucks artwork on this deck, especially with Lu doing the other characters in this series.

That's why at the top of the home page here in the news box I put "available at select skateshops". With certain Fall 2016 new releases and re-releases falling under the radar such as Hoot-Ups 2nd re-issue, Cat Girl Akiko 3 2nd re-issue, Hook-Ups Handrail re-issue, and Naughty Geisha 3 re-issue, there is one only dealer that I know of on eBay that sells these decks. I have personally purchased from them with no issues and because they specialize in a large inventory not mentioned by Klein or published on his site, I speculate they may be "pre-releases" or "test market" issues that are exclusive to a contract deal. Bunny Girl and Nurse Girl Mika re-issues were in limited availability until Socal Skateshop got some in just a few weeks ago.
BTW, don't know if you looked into them but Shower Girl and Ayumi's top graphics are terribly cropped; I don't understand the reasoning when compaing them to every other deck issued prior that featured a top graphic; Perhaps they will be issued again and advertised on the Hook-Ups website when the s**t looks legit.
