Awesome work in the shadow of horkey, same for delort(horkey jr). That goblin king is ugly as a mofo but legit.

I am ridiculously stoked on this. I love his work and this will look nice hanging next to his Hellboy II print, as they both look very similar.

My thoughts exactly, only Hellboy II has so much color that jumps off the paper. I wish this was going to drop tomorrow because I'll be tied up trying for the Horkey but anybody going for this is getting one hell of a print as well. :pint:

I am seriously digging Radagast. All the wizards really. We need more Christopher Lee posters.

There are already THIRTY of these on ebay?? I hope anyone iso it doesn't rage-buy this for much, as you shouldn't have to pay much above cost with that many people trying to flip it.

These won't go any lower than they're at now. If you think differently, you're kidding yourself. Once the few auctions from the flippers who started theirs low end, the price won't go back under $100. Taylor has a huge following and the Hobbit/LOTR franchise also has a huge following. That and this is a great print taboot

Don't think I'll be paying a flipper price for it, but I do have a feeling that I ultimately will regret not picking this one up at cost on the drop. I imagine it looks very nice in person.

This being a Ken Taylor print and knowing his propensity to use metallics, what are the odds that the gold edging and title work are NOT metallic gold? Man, I hope they are metallic...it just fits. Excited to get this one shipped!
