You guys are funny, this is going to follow the same cycle of ups and down in values that most other Mondo releases go through. If you need to be told when to buy or sell then you are either a newb or oblivious!

So I think Ken Taylor is cool, but man this poster just looks like hideous mash to me. Bad colors and a subject that doesn't play well to his strengths.

Just arrived....and WOW. Not trying to be a hype-beast...but this one is great. Wish I had enjoyed the Hobbit trilogy more...pretty bloated films...but the poster is STELLAR.

He's rght. Dumb movie but a very good print by Ken. The title and border design are gold metallic as well.

Mine showed up yesterday. It's really nice. I agree with the comments above...I wish I liked the movie more. The artwork is top notch and it's a really nice poster. I think this one was just overpowered by the long anticipated release of Aaron Horkey's final poster in the Lord of the Rings poster. Very happy to have this one.
I used to be a collector...now I'm a hoarder.

Mine showed up today and I'm overall really pleased with how it looks :D Much better than the photos (pretty much always the case...). I really like the metallic gold border design. Some of the colors are kind of odd but i think it works. Even though the movie was meh... it's a great story no matter what. This poster is huge too compared to what I normally purchase... I always forget to look at sizes when I order prints.

Side note: unfortunately there is this weird flaw on Gandalf's hat that is kinda shiny and reflects light differently and is just really distracting. If I had to guess, it is some type of water damage in just one tiny spot or maybe ink flaked off or something... Trying to see if mondo will replace it for me but it's so small I might just keep it. It's really obviously when it's laying flat and reflecting the light above it, but i doubt it would be so obvious when it is framed and hanging on a wall. I've never had to deal with this before with mondo but I think they normally have good customer service. Not sure what I'll do...
