For $75.... :roll:

The only good reason I can think of to ship a poster like this flat is that you have a WHOLE bunch of extra cardboard lying around.

Kii is making it right. He is replacing the posters and throwing in an uncut artist edition of the red poster signed for my trouble. I can live with that.

Yeah... it just sucks cause I was actually home today but he didn't knock or anything... so they were just sitting out there in the rain. The posters will probably be fine though... they're drying upstairs in a small room with a big fan. And they didn't even seem so bad to begin with.

Got mine today, and it included a letter from Kii. Says they oversold the yellow edition of 100 by 27, and to make up for it they gave me an AP edition (of 27 I'm assuming) and a free red edition, signed and numbered.

And, yes, mine was shipped flat, taped on two corners, with minor damage to the back of those two corners as a result. I was seriously pissed when I saw that they taped the prints to the cardboard. Most ridiculous packaging of prints I have ever seen. (IMO, LOST prints were the best packed prints I've ever received.)

i think the yellow (not numbered?) AP edition is probably a bigger run than the first edition, assuming they are replacing all the damaged ones with them :shock:

They're not replacing the damaged posters with APs (that I know of). They packed APs in lieu of the first edition because it was oversold.

i just had this idea.. it is somewhat mean spirited, but I figured out a way to kill two birds with one stone.. How we can help Haiti and America at the same time.. If all the obese people in America who truly want to lose weight moved to Haiti to help with the rebuild, they'd lose basically all their weight from the heat, lack of food, and the work that needs to be done. Which in turn help Haiti get back on it's feet.. America should be doing this as a charity thing..

I too got the Ap version and red print as a bonus as part of the oversold and they have a huge bend thru the whole thing which I was pissed about. I could of gotten replacements but I did not want the AP version so that was 2 strikes in my book I will be returning it for a refund. I got the keys and emek haiti prints so i've done my part to help. I just think he should of contacted us asking if we wanted that instead of just shipping it. It's a sweet print but just 2 issues right from the start turned me off.
