They sold a bunch last night while I was there and by the time I took off there were a couple hundred people still waiting in line outside. They could have easily sold the whole run at the show. Very cool that they kept some to sale online.

So, as kind of a noob, the full run was 300 of which some were sold at the show and the rest online.?. I wonder how many were available today.

I was actively refreshing my browser every 60-120 seconds and it literally went from not being there to being there and 'sold out'. Since it was less than 120 seconds between my refreshes, I suspect that all of the prints were sold at the show, or possibly that such a small amount were left over that they sold out in less than 60 seconds.

Is there anyone here that was able to snag it online?

Yes, check the release discussion. Probably 50-60 available online.

For future reference, refresh more than every minute. Otherwise you won't be getting to many prints around these parts. :wink:

It was weird, at the show the head lady was writing the numbers on the outside envelopes and i saw some with 'AP' on the envelopes also. When i got to the line she was at 289/300 so... i dont get if there is two runs of 300 or what.

Nope they were in the arkitip mag. They are on the last 500 so I think it was added to make sure they sellout.
