Incentives in an open edition have never determined whether I enter. The odds of winning are so small I never even consider it happening.

I'm also kind of impressed how the site did for the variant drop as well. I don't know how many people were going for it, but the site was smooth, and I didn't hear of any oversells.

I love the image and am +1 on the timed edition. It's funny to me reading about the timed-release being considered an open-edition. I have purchased 4 or 5 timed editions in the past and they have all been numbered and limited, just not limited to such a small edition size.

I've purchased a few open editions, and they are not numbered because the edition size is perpetually growing. Am I missing something about this release?

It's technically a timed edition. I am not sure why they are calling an open edition. Whatever sells in 72 hours is the edition size.

Anyone else surprised that no eBay sales have happened yet on the variant edition?

Since I didn't buy a variant, I am fairly certain it will have some sick GID inks or something :lol:

Buy-in cost (with intl shipping ) was pretty high for getting any sort of profit from a quick flip of this.

I agree with all stated above I'm just surprised there were only a handful listed right out of the starting gate and no jabroni willing to overpay right out of said starting gate. People posted weak prints right away all the time that get scooped up by the aforementioned jabroni.

Chances are if you know about this, you probably know there is a regular edition that you can pick up for cost at the moment. Regardless of the quality of the pieces, Durieux's non-Mondo work has yet to flip for crazy (Jaws/King Kong) like levels.

I'm actually surprised that there are not more regular editions currently on Ebay.

On the fence here if I should pull the trigger. Big LD fan but mostly collect movie prints.

What do you think the final run size will be for this? Even with 3 full days it could still stay under 600 wouldn't you think?
I hate to sound condescending... which means to talk down to you by the way.
