This toilet is decorated with the X-Men comics of artist Jim Lee. It's on sale on eBay at a current bid of $495. Presumably it's meant to be a decorative, rather than practical piece. Presumably.
The seat has been covered with the ads from the various companies that advertised back issues, showing the prices for available issues in 1991. The seat lid features the Magneto cover and assorted images of the Master of Magnetism from all the issues. The back of the seat lid features the “Blast From the Past” centerfold poster, with only X-Men as the background, no bad guys or filler pics. The bottom of the seat is glossy images from the deluxe edition only. It’s shiny and makes a wonderful frame for the lid back when opened…..The credits for the issue, along with the indicia, are intact on the base, along with the author’s name in large letters from an ad featuring his novels. After all the separate images were glued in place, they were coated repeatedly, first with the glue sealant, then with 5-6 coats of polyurethane. The whole process took upwards of 80 hours and a full pint of polyurethane.
