Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

the website refresh seems pretty weak for the effort. similar overall design/design, they just added a drop section and fixed some operational issues. I think the operational issues is just flat rate shipping? So updated the shipping rates = nEw eXciTinG fEatTurEs. And they still keep referring to ...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Or just buy it because, well, they like it. Of course! Didn't mean to leave that out. I'm sure people will enjoy this and it hits a certain segment of collectors, I'm just excited to see if it is an instant sell out, i.e. if their marketing scheme works. This is not an instant sell-out poster. So, ...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Huge edition, restricted shipping regions, lackluster sequel print that doesn't match the original print, this should be an easy get. I'm excited to see how many sheeple are slaves to Mondo though and buy it because they put a countdown timer on their page now. I mean, its same as it ever was... cal...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

They've essentially just changed their market from "people who collect art" to "people who buy limited editions" by putting focus on an arbitrary Shopify collection page called "The Drop". It's so transparent it's almost insulting. Excited to see the retention rate for the freshman class who are cha...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Just more superfluous updates to drum up a buzz. lol at the url change. The scheduled drop time has happened before, like on Black Friday Ex Machina/Ragnorak. Just a feeble attempt to get things to start selling out quickly again and spark back up that hype they've been missing in their Twitter comm...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Wasn't the flatfile sale a huge injection of cash? Probably, but USPS also raised their shipping prices by 10% recently. I imagine if they are sitting on thousands of orders where they didn't take that into account, it could take a decent size bite off of their margin. On top of the expenses of "mo...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Steamboat Willie ships in May. Why not wait and sell it in April or May? They probably are short on cash flow. It's bizarre to me that they are moving in this direction where they are essentially marketing themselves as a merch company with "buy now!!" messaging but sticking with the shipping times...

Pics of the foil?
Not printed yet. See Robocop edition for idea
So, not foil at all then? Robocop "foil" had no empty layers so it just looks like glitter paper. I'd hope this had some actual foil representation innit.

What happened to Tula BR? Is that dead?

Jesus Christ, $75? Are they mass sending everyone with a delayed order that much?

That seems like dangerous business, I don't care how good your profit margins are.

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

none of it feels off. dude, go look at the comments on their social media posts for the last month on facebook and twitter. you have to "reveal hidden" on facebook but there are tons of comments on every single post that say "respond to my emails" "ship my stuff" "stop promoting more things to buy"...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

its a few extra weeks. not the end of the world. Agreed. Most people didn't even read the portion about shipping in January to begin with. That being said, this feels like something deeper going than the typical Mondo delays. They spent all of November pushing a marketing campaign with "Staff Picks...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

Sure you can. Step 1: tell everyone its over priced so they dont buy it Step 2: Buy them even though you say its to high Step 3: Low print run due to anti-hype Step 4: Profit - sell the prints on secondary for even higher as the run is low and people gotta be completionist Step 0, Acquire a time ma...

Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

its more on mike about bringing the portraits back than it is mondo. duh. of course, and like I said - If I were him I probably won't care to do them either. My criticism here applies to the roll out of price hike. Maybe it was necessary with ACME, but I doubt it. Doesn't even matter - it's just si...
