Ended up with...

What The Hell Were You Thinking Ray? (Suffered a bit from the mishandling, but it's gonna be going up in the movie room! I can hide most of the bend by just matting a little bit over the art)

Cultural Impact Green (Love this one; putting it up in my office in our studio)

Icarus

Butterfly (Some very minor bending, but I'm thinking it will flatten out. Not quite sure what I'll do with it yet.)

They Come At Night (THIS is the one that suffered the brunt of the mailman's wrath. Looks like someone took a bat to it since the big dent on the tube was toward its edge.)



Overall, definitely glad I took part in it. And I can't wait to get Watership in so I can get it in the empty frame on the wall in my daughter's room :D


Nightmare, glad most of it survived though.

On another note, the GOLDEN TICKET has been found, still no word on Mead Streets, Warriors and 7 sketches yet

I just got very lucky and purchased Mead Street on eBay for a fair price. Had to practically beg the wife and I have to retroactively sell some posters, but it's worth it. I'll post pics once it arrives.

I got my mystery tube today and got:

- The Beginning
- Cultural Impact London
- Fast Gun
- Butterfly
- Spiderman 2

Butterfly is definitely my favorite out of the bunch. Was a fun experience.

Seeing that sketch is making me really look forward to getting the main poster whenever that is coming out.

Did anyone happen to get the peanuts game of thrones prints in their mystery tube? Looking to get those.

I love it--but $80 to get a regular to the US is just a bit above what I can spend.

What's going on with the Scarecrow's legs, by the way? I've looked and looked, and I can't seem to figure it out.

after re-reading the book, I decide to make the scarecrow and the Lion more realistic, so the scarecrow has a pole and two dangling legs

I'm still confused. The book says, "Dorothy reached up both arms and lifted the figure off the pole; for, being stuffed with straw, it was quite light. 'Thank you very much,' said the Scarecrow, when he had been set down on the ground."

It's also my nod to Mr Turnip Head :)
