UPDATE: My offer is still in effect, but I am also willing to sell some of my extra Krana. I've got 4 WMKK for sale for $200 a piece. Two of them don't have a bag or certificate of authenticity, so I'll drop the price on those ones to $100.
Greetings to everyone reading this!
So where do I start? I'm trying to finish my Krana collection and the only pieces I have yet to obtain are the two Gray Plastic Krana Kal (GPKK - pictured below) and I'm willing to pay anyone who can help me hunt them down! Keep reading for details.

For those of you who don't know what these are, the Gray Plastic Krana-Kal were rare Prototype Krana given out to Proto Squad memebers in 2003 (pictures in this BZP news article). Despite how some of them may look in different pictures due to bad lighting, they are NOT the Dark Gray Krana found with the Lehvak Va sets. These Krana are made from a hard plastic vice rubber like the majority of other Krana, which is what makes them so unique and rare.
Here's a few pics of the ones I already have with good lighting so you can see the contrast between them and the normal dark gray Krana:
I've been fortunate enough to find 6 out of 8 of them in just barely over 18 month's time and these last three are going to be the hardest to obtain. I know that there were approximately 2000 Proto Squad members back in 2003 when these were given out which means these pieces are out there and many of the owners have probably forgotten about them under their bed or in their attic, ignorant to their value. So here's what I'm going to do in order to hopefully help my chances of hunting them down: I want your help obtaining these Krana. Whether it's through the internet or perhaps someone you know in person, it doesn't matter. If you can find someone who owns one (or more) of these 2 particular Krana, put me in touch with them (PM me with their phone number, email address, or some other means of communication) and once I work out a deal with them, I will pay you $100 USD via Paypal! If for any reason the cash incentive doesn't interest you, I will instead give you a White Metal Krana-Kal (a $200 value) for your assistance. And for added incentive, if you're able to put me in touch with multiple owners of the GPKK I'm seeking, I will pay you the $100/WMKK incentive for each Krana that I obtain. So, hypothetically speaking, if you find somebody who owns both of these GPKK I still need and I'm able to close a deal with them, I will give you $200 or 2 WMKK (or a mix) just for your assistance. Just to clarify, you only get the $100 or WMKK incentive if I'm able to work out a deal with the person you put me in touch with, but I can almost guarantee that if you can put me in touch with somebody who owns one of these, I'll make them a generous offer that will be difficult for them to decline. As much as I would like to be able to say I'll give the incentive to anyone who can put me in touch with someone who owns a GPKK, but doesn't respond to me and we aren't able to work out a deal, I can't. The reason for this is because if I wind up in multiple situations where I am not able to obtain the GPKK from its owner I don't want to put myself in a situation where I've run out of WMKK or money before I'm even able to obtain the pieces I'm seeking. Now if you're reading this and you happen to be the owner of any of the GPKK that I own, you contact me directly and we work out a deal, we can slap another $100 or a WMKK on top of the price we settle on so that you get the same incentive I'm offering everyone else.
If you need further clarification on this, please post in this topic or PM me. If you need to get in touch with me via email, my email address is listed in my BZP profile.
