All I have to say is Three Barrels, and that should be enough. I thankfully got the Bettlejuice before the whole thing went belly up, but that is the fear.

Honestly, if you really are worried, shoot him an email.

I received a shipping notice for this yesterday, and received it today. As per the other prints in the series, Robert's packaging is probably not going to measure up to many EBer's standards. Print is protected by paper, but the tube is thin and the caps are not taped down. Tube was fine with a little ding on the edge of one end, right by the cap. Quick look inside didn't reveal any damage to the print.

I am amazed this print came in good condition despite being shipped in stock uline tubes from staples.

Mine wound up being ok. There is a slight bend near the bottom of the print (about an 1.5" from the bottom edge almost centered) that, because of the white paper, I can feel but is almost invisible otherwise. Pretty sure it will flatten out.

My regular arrived today... held my breath while removing the thing from the tube but it looks like it's alright thankfully. I hope others arrive in good shape as well because this thing is a beaut. :pint:

Arrived today, and it looks great.

Yes, the tubes are pretty crappy, and the caps weren't taped.

I think I like it enough to keep though, and I was planning on trading!

Got my variant today. Crappy tube, no tape in the end caps. Print was fine. Not sure how it made it.

Got mine today. Amateurish. Tube ends not sealed. The print was intact. "Hurrah" you might say.

No. Not hurrah. The only reason the print has stayed intact is that it was rolled so tightly that it stuck in the tube. The downside being that it is creased to wankery.

Seller took so long to despatch that the Paypal guarantee is void. I did, however, pay through Paypal via credit card so can pursue it that way, if I don't get an appropriate response from the seller.

Should someone inform Mr. Moss that this guy is a shipping clown? He might want to tell him don't penny pinch the small stuff, like the vehicle of arrival for the thing that people bought.

And here's the response from the seller received to my email:

"I don't run a poster business. I make a podcast. The posters are there to support the show, not to satisfy Olly Moss fans. This is, in fact, an amateur operation.

I've shipped 7 different 200-run posters in these tubes, never sealed. I've never heard of the ends popping off. Creases have been an issue this time because I switched to wrapping in paper vs the plastic sleeves I used to use. I switched to paper because of a few poster fetishists who insisted the plastic was wrong. You guys are ridiculous. Don't ever order from me again. I'll cancel it."

I have pointed out that if you don't want to play with the 'poster fetishists', you probably shouldn't charge $65 a pop for what you seem to think is just a piece of paper.

And that's the very reason why I never even bothered contacting him about my roll creased Red version. :hanging:

I've always liked his stuff on 1UP and solo, but honestly, he sure comes across as kind of a dick sometimes. You're spot on about the price point being what elevates the care that should be taken for the product, not what the product is promoting.
