Rumel's a good guy, and he's got some of Dave Dorman's artwork from the Palisades Micronauts line as well. (Small, but beautiful!)
When I was helping Hero Factory put together the Micronauts trading card set, Rumel actually packed up the Ken Kelly paintings (many of them are very large on heavy board) and drove them to the photography studio and then sat around all day with them to get them photographed - all just to share 'em with the rest of the world and only in exchange for a few copies of the final product.
Too bad Marty Abrams couldn't be convinced to be as accessible in order to get Antron into the set... :-( (that's a whole other story there).
KK made ltd-ed prints of Hornetroid and Terraphant for the Micropolis Embassy. He might still have a couple unsigned prints left @ kenkellyart.com . I haven't decided yet when/if I might ask him to make another for us - or which Alien we'll choose.

Dave has some great work as well . pretty cool story. They would have still bombed I feel with the star wars era beginning.
But putting them on EBAY is an odd choice because the asking price is something He'll never get truly even in real life. The are incredible paintings to be sure but it's an area that would only attract a select few really. they should be in a museum somewhere instead of peddeled on ebay.
He would make more money making limited edition prints and selling them to collectors. I know I would purchase the prints in any form.
