I ended up getting a set of 24 for 1/2 price, which turned out to be $65, but then I used my 20% off coupon and that brought it down to $52. Still a lot to pay for markers, but I thought I'd give it a try. And, not a bad price for regularly being $130 a set! This brought it down to $2/marker, which I can live with. I also bought 3 individual markers, a light tan, a colorless blender, and a grey.
I was very happy with the selection of colors in the set. I think the only ones I'd pick up individually would be a lighter purple and a lighter pink, and maybe a lighter skin tone color.
I colored the girl on the left with a sand color for her skin and a peach color for the one of the right. I used the thin nib as I felt I could control it better. The colorless blender was great for a few spots I colored outside the lines and I also highlighted in a few areas. I also added a few highlights with the Prismacolor white colored pencil. I used the black Memento ink pad, as you would with the Copics.
All in all I am very happy with these markers and would recommend them for sure! I felt they were very easy to blend and even though I'm sure my technique could use improvement, I was satisfied with the results.
