Noticing the line not coming through the doors for awhile only to see Struzan walk in and get a pic with him was insane. Robert Rodriquez walking around looking at art with us riffraff, buying a MItchell OG, seeing the paper pulled down to see the Ansin Franks, being nervous to get in line not knowing anybody only to find Darkknight and the line being so much of the fun...it all can't be topped for me :pint:

Darabont was there too.

Ya he bought the killer Pullin Creature OG and gave it to a friend. If I could go back I woulda bought it in a second but $600 was an insane amount of money for an OG in my head at the time lol

Honestly though, hasn't Mondo already done a healthy amount of great UM posters by many a great artist at this point, that we need another whole show dedicated to the same 5-6 monsters? Not to mention that most of the sequels were garbage. Sure its cool for fans, but I can think of many other movie themes they could dedicate their artist's time to.

While it isn't quite the drscott hype mania wolfe mayne of 2012, universal monsters still have an extemely dedicated fan base. Given the fact that the Mondo stable is much different now then it was during the last show, I think it will be fun to see who gets tapped for what properties this go around.

Don't think I will make the trip this time as I plan to do mondocon and the vacvvm group show, but I bet it will be fun.

Ansin creature has been requested since 2011. I wonder why it has yet to happen.

Wouldn't miss this for the world. The first UM show was, by a large margin, the best gallery show I've been to (I'm a fanatic for these properties so I'm very biased) and I'm sure this one will be amazing too. Looking forward to walking out of there very, very broke.

My understanding is he took a couple of shots at it and wasn't quite happy with the results. I'd much rather him take his time and get it right.

I like the fact that Mondo's roster of artists has evolved so much since the original, there should be a whole new set of perspectives to showcase.

Nothing can top the classic Ansin Monster series except Ansin himself.
