So......what you guys are saying is....you want HCG to become more popular and thus making it harder for you to get decent prints....and have the headache of the drops and the aftermarket.......is that what you are saying?

If only HCG were as successful as Mondo, they would be as successful as Mondo.

If you think this poster hasn't sold out just because it's not on Mondo, clearly you're missing a few things. Number one, it's not a great property. Number two, it's not a great image. HCG has proven they can sell out a print in seconds. See Tyler Stout's Ultron. There's no word of mouth on this one because people just aren't into the poster. If they were, people would know about it.

I keep looking at it and looking at it, and finally just pulled the trigger. I loved the orange of the variant, but I am really interested to see the metallics on the reg.

I have a feeling this might be one people will regret skipping down the line . . . #selfhype? :D

Not at all. Just sayin people go crazier over Mondo stuff more than HCG, even if it's not better. Simply because it's Mondo, and they think there's a better chance of a flip there.

ONE: Still haven't seen it yet, so i can't argue with you there.

TWO: The images are great (Vance & Tobin anyway). They're drymountin creepy, and if i'm not mistaken, isn't that what the movie is about? Or tries to be anyway? Not to mention, with how hot Tobin is gettin, everyone's droolin over his stuff it seems. So, Mondo Tobin = sellout Tobin.

THREE: Aka, Mondo's biggest artist...

I honestly could not figure out why so many people were into it. I won't say what poster I was looking at but let's just say it wasn't the VVitch and let's just say I'm an idiot and leave it at that

:lol: Ya, all 3 are pretty strong imo and even if the property isn't huge and is also pretty polarizing, it would, in all likelihood, sell out had Mondo released it.

You can't really use Stout Ultron as an example either (although I know HCG and others sell out of posters for stuff all the time, but not with the same frequency as the big M). It's Stout. How many Stouts haven't sold out? :P

I'd be all over the Vance Kelly if I didn't have a stack of paper already piled up...
