One of the main reasons why it doesn't appeal to me. Also, I don't like the color orange...never did. Just not my style.

I think this will hold its value. The design is great in my oppinon and the film is extremely popular plus it's an Olly Moss print. The fact it has been selling at these prices suggests people are willing to pay it. Also the small print run limits it's availability which will possibly make it more desirable to own to some folk. It would of been nice if it hadn't rocketed in price, I'm kicking myself that I hesitated over paying $257 for it when the first two appeared on eBay by the same seller. I think Mondo should of limited selling only per customer especially due to its small run.

Overal it's a great poster and a must own for me.

How many do you think they let each customer buy?

Call me crazy, but I prefer Holt's. Don't understand the lack of hype for his. Maybe once this Moss hype dies down, Holt's will come out of its slumber. :wink:

I think they was able to buy two each as I noticed a few sellers on eBay had a couple available. I could be wrong though.

oddkid, a lot of those who attend these events...they bring family, girlfriends, and personal hobos to buy extra prints for them. It's a dog eat dog world when it comes to posters.

that's why as fans we should be more selective of what we buy. i ain't supporting a fanboy business knowing damn well that quality has taken a toll. mondo used to churn out sick posters but after opening their cash grab gallery it's quite clear money > quality has taken effect. mondo used to produce 4/5 dope posters but now it's more like 2/5 per month. they might have started the game as an ace, but i'm demoting them down to my 3rd starter.

I bought less than a dozen posters from Mondo, last year. So, if I get one good print a month (content, appeal), I'm cool.

Mondo has a hell of a lot more going for them compared to the new galleries selling bootlegs. DHM is good in my book too.

This JB print is nice...it's just not my thing.

I hear the complaints. For me, its his best since LOTR (maybe SW). I can't wait to get mine, already have the perfect aged, barn wood frame for it. In fact, I was looking for a print to put in that frame. So excited.

all these so called galleries are nothing special. i hope they pay for that printing machine within 5 years because i doubt pop galleries will survive the time. the only one making any type of of separation is mondo..and that's because they started the game and they actually own their theater. the rest of the galleries are just capitalizing on the pop culture craze.

The theater owns them. But that's also why they are so lucky, they can use that and their association with the film industry to get an in for licensed properties.

Also I think great prints have come from all the galleries and give a shot to less established artists even if the art isn't always quite as good as top tier mondo stuff its also rarely as expensive or insanely frustrating to purchase.
