Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Well, I've bought 2,000+ original movie posters but it's great that LD/Mondo can sometimes match even the best originals: http://i1320.photobucket.com/albums/u536/HereComesMongo1968/37920481262_98f7e496f9_c_zpsqbnayyry.jpg http://i1320.photobucket.com/albums/u536/HereComesMongo1968/lf-2_zpswpj9x60v....

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

I'm mostly an original movie poster guy - check out my collection here - but I bought and framed this fantastic 18x24 Veritgo by "We Buy Your Kids" in 2016:

Re: Journey To The Center Of The Earth 14 Durieux

I ordered two timed prints and was required to upgrade to the 36 Euro shipping price. Ouch! That's $25 shipping each.

Re: Mondotees/Alamo Poster News & Rumors thread

It's great that the studio authorized an illustrated print for American Hustle but 18x24 blows. Look how tiny it is compared to the 27x40 1S and 40x60 bus shelter:

It nicely complements the 1937 originals IMO:

Re: Metropolis 13 Dye

Old thread but I'll comment on some of the copyright issues raised here. Virtually all older (pre-1960) United States posters (and all other promotional materials) have fallen into the public domain and it is perfectly legal to reprint and sell the reprints because they were never properly copyright...

Re: Laurent Durieux - Appreciation & Discussion

Has this come up before? When I purchased a copy this morning, I captured a screen shot with the title "Sam The Pianist": http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-11/Casablanca%20%28Sam%20The%20Pianist%29%20%282013%20Laurent%20Durieux%2021x36%29.png It's now been changed to "Sam Gets Requests" (which...

For those of you who missed the Roger Rabbit drop - or just want more Jessica on the poster - you should consider getting the Kilian mylar posters from the early 90s. They're spectacular - here are pics of mine - check out the "glitter" effect of the mylar: :notworthy: I posted something about thes...

Re: Mondotees/Alamo Poster News & Rumors thread

So I put together a fun slide show video featuring all the Alamo Drafthouse Star Wars posters on YouTube - check it out and let me know what you think. (Be sure to select the 480p, not 240p, option in the lower right of the player for best quality.) P.S. It's worth watching just to listen to the Sta...

Re: Mondotees/Alamo Poster News & Rumors thread

yes i agree you should balloon the price of everything. then, when noone buys it you can lower the prices until someone bites. genius. It's called capitalism, bro. It's what every business does. Price your goods to maximize profit. Mondo gave up many thousands of dollars of profit today that should...

Re: Mondotees/Alamo Poster News & Rumors thread

We're really not sure how a few people are getting more than one set. They must be literally paying their friends to order them for their eBay account. It's disheartening, to say the least. No disrespect Mitch but you have opened the doors to abusive flippers by selling WAY below fair market value ...
