oh well is kind of where i'm at. Even though numbers usually don't mean much, it's hard to give up #16x.

I think I may end up keeping the one I have with edge wear rather than risking getting another in worse condition. They haven't even gotten back to me about how to ship it back anyways. Maybe they are being swamped with complaints?

I'm luck. mine came in OK shape. Never seen tubes with caps like these before though. I felt like they were made to torture the opener. Scraped my knuckles and am bleeding.

I tried turning and pulling like it says , that did not work.
Tried pliers that did work
Used a bottle opener to push the tabs in then pulled the damn cap out

I ordered two of the non-signed, non-numbered open edition and they came in decent condition. End caps were securely in place. A couple of mild roll creases were on the bottom of the prints but I reverse rolled them out in kraft paper and they are barely perceptible now (and only if I hold the posters at certain angle).

does anyone else think the paster version(thin) is nicer? I like the speckled stock best plus the #'d poster is pretty thin also.

I agree. Really nice in person. Smells good too. :lol:

I think I'm gonna frame the thin one for a while at first until I can get enough scratch to switch out the regular glass for UV glass. Then I'll put the signed one in. (if I get a replacement, that is)

:hanging: So ridiculous! I waited for this piece of crap print a month! (unsigned numbered edition 16xx)

-impossible to open tube
-tube too short
- print not protected enough on edges


My print is ruined, what kind of retard monkey packaged these things up? I hope moveon.org goes out of business.

use needle nose pliers to get the end caps off. easy as pie.

i got a return label email from UPS to send this print back. I asked if I could send them a wider tube that they could also use to return the print in. i didnt get an answer on that one, but I am going to do it anyway. its a nice print. i didnt think it would look that good. it seemed like there was too much going on in a small space, but that was just the sticker and jpg. i really hope they have someone who cares package these prints up. it looks like they folded the beginning of the print when they went to roll it. i wonder how many out of the 5000 prints got damaged. sounds like a large % from the comments on this board.

Just got mine in as well and have the same exact story. Paper to short causing edge damage right in the middle of the print for about 8 inches and roll creases galore toward the top. Hopefully they will respond to the e-mail and get me a return label as well. That is an excellent idea to ship in your own tube, maybe even leave instructions on proper packaging techiniques inside. Hopefully it will get taken care of, just sucks waiting so long and then getting it like this. Hopefully my MBW comes in excellent condition today.
