Yeah $70 & $100 are a big step up. This isn't the strongest poster for DHM to try out a thirty dollar hike above the norm, imo.

LD standard pricing is 60/90 so not exactly a massive price hike

Oh. I guess it doesn't come as a surprise that I was comparing to Mondo prices lol.

Dark Knight was above average Mondo pricing. He's just a more expensive artist in general.

also doesn't help that they are printing in Belgium. extra shipping costs and a currency issue.

I just wish that the shipping norm for them was 2-3 weeks vs 4-5.

The credit block issue didn't help either. Some people still hope that AP will have them so prefer to wait and see.

It's just not a very good poster.

Not really...

The majority of them aren't sold out because 1-2 copies are cartlocked. Price and the credit block are definitely factors, but it's not exactly a spectacular failure either.

Is this the first time an artist sandbagged his own release before the drop?

Yeah, that "April Fools Joke" was not a very good idea. The people who favored that version made the conscious decision to NOT get the DHM version, in order to get their preferred AP. So when the AP, in the form it was in, was said to be a hoax, now all of a sudden you have a bunch of people who'd already decided not to buy the DHM release, disappointed and either "settling" for what they'd consider a lesser version, or not buying at all.
So it goes...

I think you are looking too deep in to it.

The sale have gone quite well considering how bad the print is.

14 pieces left across all the editions.

Not only that, the poster was designed to have those titles in there. A majority of his latest works really look phoned in and bleak compared to his detailed 2012-2014 works. Not that impressed with Indy either. The Bear looks incredible and I'm hoping Alien knocks our socks off. Maybe he's got too much on his plate. :?

YOU think its bad, so not a great measuring stick of success.

Its hard to debate that showing a superior version or more accepted version kinda watered this one down a bit...kind of DOA in a sense.
