He's also selling a bunch of other posters from the Mondo SW series. Given that most of those would be a waste of time to fake, it actually seem plausible to me.

Just surprised a seller would let even an unnumbered set go for that little. Strapped for holiday cash?

Wouldn't touch aftermarket on these without some genuine provenance or history these days.

Last two ebay sales have have the corners held down using:

1. bags of bobs red mill beans
2. water bottles

Also 10/10 I would've bought that unnumbered set.

That seller is from the same city where my unnumbered Stout SW's prints came from that I bought off eBay right after the drop. According to the information I received back then, that's where the company was at the time who sub-licensed the SW's rights to Mondo. Mondo confirmed it. Seller is probably from the same company. Good thing I saved those emails.

Hey All - I'm a newbie to expressobeans. Very thankful to have stumbled across this community.

I'm the original owner of a matching set/series of all three posters (#219/400). A few details:
  • a. I've been the only owner and acquired them from Mondo during the original sale in 2010
  • b. Due to living circumstances at the time of purchase, I have never opened the package as it arrived from Mondo
  • c. I have all my original documentation, confirmation email, invoices and the package is exactly as it arrived from Mondo (tube undamaged, tape and shipping labels intact).
  • d. Since the package is unopened, I have never actually laid eyes on the posters myself
Needless to say, these have been close to my heart - however, I am considering parting ways with them. Given the circumstances above, I was hoping a friend here might be able to help me address my below concerns as I embark along the process of finding these posters a loving, appreciative new home.
  • 1. Does the fact that the posters are EXACTLY as they were shipped by Mondo help or hurt my resale value?
  • 1a. If help, any suggestions to increase buyer confidence that the item is as advertised?
  • 1b. If hurt, what steps should I take now to address any concerns?
  • 2. Outside of Ebay, does anyone have a recommended selling procedure that is safe for both buyer & seller?
  • 3. If I do sell on Ebay, I believe my lack of seller feedback would limit interest in the item and am considering working with a reputable vendor. Any suggestions?
Any help would be appreciated. And if not - no worries, happy hunting! This community has already been awesome & I've found a few prints I never even knew I wanted. Thanks!
Hey All,

I know this thread has been dormant for awhile, but wanted to share that I’ve definitely made up my mind to sell my set (in the same circumstances outlined above and discussed in detail starting on Page 20 of this thread).

Ultimately, the Mrs. and I have decided to save up and purchase our first house. Of course, while the money will help with the down payment as we start our life together, ultimately I’m realizing that I just won’t ever really have a place to hang these and display them in our home (which was my original intent as both a Star Wars and Olly Moss fan).

All the same circumstances and details shared in the original post from 2015 still apply. Only notable differences are that it’s been five additional years since then (10 since release), we have relocated to Georgia (as opposed to South Florida) and - based on the sleuthing of some helpful posters in this thread - 219 is NOT the edition number, as originally stated, but in fact the Mondo SKU from my original invoice.

I’d love to get $7,500 for the set, but am accepting any and all reasonable offers. I’d also ideally like to handle here vs. posting on eBay (unless there’s a total lack of interest), so please feel free to DM with any questions or follow-ups. I’m sure there will be a few given its original packaging + what I gather are a rather sizeable number of fakes based on the most recent posts in this thread.

All the best,
Mike

They've been in the tube for 10 years now? Yikes!

I'd suggest starting a For Sale thread. This isn't the right place.

I’m very close to your heart, but you’ve never laid eyes on me.

Who is Jeebuz, Alex?

Ok I’ll take Flowers in the Attic for 600.
just a foil for me today, thanks

looks like buyer may have pressured him on the condition because now he has damage listed:

"light ding on the left part next to C-3PO face

The empire strikes back : light bend in the lower left corner

Return of the Jedi : light bend in the lower left corner - Light ding on the left part next to Wader face"

Those don't look like light dings in the photo section
