I agree. Really didn't like this for some reason at first. But as time has gone on, it's grown on me.

Just saw this piece in person. People were waiting at 6am this morning according to staff.
They only sold one of these and sold it as is framed.
They had one as well of the standard version.

Of course both sold long before I got there.
I asked if there would be more available and they said no but I will still stop back again.

Couple of things to correct:

- A "proof" of the regular edition was sold framed.
- Around 25 AP regs on pearl paper were sold unframed to the people in line.
- A Test Print Foil edition was sold framed.
- People lined up before 6am. Many didn't know how to get in the mall while it was closed.

Munk One did it. With that said, I don't think EMEK will.

Hope you got one of these.
Any idea what time people started lining up?
Or what the cost was for the unframed AE? Were these sold before 5?
Bummed to have missed it and to be close enough to see but not touch. Though I could not have waited multiple days in line. Hate to think that the unframed AE may have been available when I was there but two different people working told me they had one proof framed and one foil framed and they were both sold without mentioning anything about unframed AE.

Some people tried to camp out at midnight but didn't end up staying. Think I over heard one of them saying they got locked out and couldn't get back in. Someone else said security made them leave.(your not allowed to camp out in the mall) Anyways, I know the line was again started at around 5am or so by a diehard primus fan. Was only at 4-5 people long when they handed out numbers for the first time at around 9am.

Cost of the AE unframed was $200. The stack was behind the employees at the front desk, pretty hard to miss if you were talking to employees there. The prints were sold to the first 20 some odd people who had numbers from earlier in the day.

If you didn't get there till later, igood chance that the AEs were sold out by the time you got there. I'm not sure on the exact time they sold the last one for the night.

I heard the show editions aren't hand signed. Can someone who has one confirm this?

So, the people that hit the number win the chance, and then go down the list from there? or a true lottery and just picking the time for fun?

how many are there of these to be had?

Some guy on Ebay claims he already has 1 of 150 of them?

Estimated delivery of date of Aug 4 - 7 on that auction. Hmm
I'm not someone else.
