If the folks at Methane, who created this print, sell it at a higher price now than earlier, that really shouldn't be called "flipping". They have raised the price from the original release price, as market demand indicates they should, but they are the original owners and creators. They did not "speculate", they did not buy and resell at a higher price, which is my understanding of the classic "flipper" definition used around here. Why should not the artist get the financial benefit of high demand for their own work?

they have a few extra they'll be selling next week. They'll sell them at whatever price they want, so it's pointless to bitch about it now.

The van arrived in Phoenix today. Hubby and I just went over it with a scorpion light (UV) and it is Sweet. Glad it's on black paper or I'd be worried about ink scratches (the light never touched it btw and neither did we). Love the Methane logo between the bumper and the rear tire, and of course the skull.

Still available. I guess $175 is more than most can spare in this economy. Personally this is the only of the 5 Lost prints that I managed to get that I have no qualms about keeping. It's a cool print.

Ditto all that. They obviously want every penny as much as it is averaging on ebay. Great print, and I'm very glad I got it for a reasonable price.
