I know I can't everything, I just have not realized it yet.

I'm in Canada and it costs more to ship everywhere, so get over it.

My take-a-way from this as a person only a year and a half into the hobby is that while it's great that HCG is working with "top artists" shouldn't it's purpose to bring attention to the gallery and their art output as opposed to who's art their outputting? The brief I've read I feel like this more about Stout and secret prints than about HCG and their direction of selling quality prints from top talent. Also shouldn't they feel that everything they produce is "Elite'"? I don't trust secrets and even less so when you're asking me to fork over 4 bills.

From what I've learned with what Mondo does is that there is an actual 'art direction' involved that makes each piece inherently "Mondo's". This is just a continuation of a series that started with Mondo. Though I don't know what's involved with Stout's overall protocol. Does he just do what he does or is there someone guiding him through a process for that license?

But I digress, I'm still new to this.

People know they bought a Stout, a Delort, and a mystery print. People think the Stout is Age of Ultron.

That's literally it.

It all doesn't matter, we'll see what's what in due time and there's apparently some big convention this weekend to look forward to.
Why do people know they bought a Stout? The announcement that people linked to said Jock and Delort.

The email you saw links to was the OLD original announcement for the "Elite Editions" project. It stated that they would working with artists like Jock, Delort and others yet to be announced. That email was sent months ago.

The EB rumor mill is saying that there was ANOTHER email that went out yesterday to a select list of VIPs, in which, it stated Stout, Delort and another mystery artist. Again, that's the rumor.

Well they had the cast and crew variant printed for last night's event, HCG's said they're shipping things after they get back from NYCC, and that combination of factors would either speak to AoU being the EE Stout or HCG having TWO Stouts ready to go.

FFS someone just post the email and end this already. Cat is out of the bag. Can't imagine Stout did 2 Officially-LIcensed prints for HCG so it has to be AoU

I dunno, I'm sure there are still quite a few people wondering where their Drake mysteries and Pixar sets are.

Remember when you bought art because you liked the way that particular piece of art looked?
