Not Matt and after Mark's shipment we will be shipping the mystery tubes just because it involves a lot of combined orders and we don't want to think we have extra prints when we don't.

Also - and not to nitpick - but Luke's hands seem oddly oversized, especially in relation to the lightsaber handle:

90s movie trailer voice...

In a country being torn apart by a ruthless president with small hands, this artist dared to go BIG



edit: I really don't think the hands look big, maybe just the lighting? Overall love the image, can't wait to see the metallics

The artist is Matt Taylor for this release.
No doubt, I was commenting back on a post where some folks mentioned it looked more like a Gabz inspired design.

The piece is exactly how Matt wanted it and we love it. Going off the earlier reserve, thinking many people enjoy it as well.

It gives me a No Limit Records album cover vibe.

haha haven't seen that cover in a while.

Its actually supposed to be more a tribute to the original poster. Looking at it more, I can't even imagine what some of the FB art directors would say if we released this today.

That art by Tom Chantrell is brilliant, I'm not sure there's anything to criticize (unless you really want to be pedantic about Vader's sabre hilt).
