Just heard it's sold out at NYCC. There's some back at the LA office, so they'll ship it out. Though they might offer first dibs to those at the con. I'd reach out to HCG.

I wouldnt trust them to ship anything at this point... ask the people who ordered those Stan Lee signed prints.

Cliff notes are that people still don't have their prints.

With all the crazy fudge going on with the Stan Lee estate, they're prolly better off issuing refunds at this point.

That’s the issue apparently. People paid about a year ago for signed Stan Lee prints and now that it’s painfully obvious that isn’t gonna happen, people want their money back. But in true HCG fashion they aren’t replying to anyone’s emails or messages and seem to be hoping the problem just goes away :lol:

Also I wouldn’t worry about those Muppet prints selling out. They aren’t numbered so they’ll just print as many as they want. Same with Lost Boys and Labyrinth and probably everything else they debuted at NYCC.

People have 180 days to file a paypal claim so if they haven't already, that's on them. Still boggles my mind that major studios like Marvel will gladly work with purveyors of so much unlicensed artwork. Guess they don't give a fudge as long as they get paid.

The thing that bothers me is that they posted, on social media, a picture of Stan Lee signing a stack of posters. One of the stack of posters is him signing the Manev Iron Man poster, which is the one that I ordered with a signature. The picture was posted a few weeks, following the limited time-frame of ordering the first wave of signature prints. So, why wasn't my poster included in the stack of posters? That's what has been bothering me, is that they have a stack of Iron Man posters signed by Stan Lee and never delivered (and that it has been almost a year, since my purchase).

I've emailed them, 4-5 months, following the purchase date. They sent replies of promises that Stan Lee will return "soon" to sign the rest of the posters. I've pretty much held off buying anymore prints from them, aside from the signed Struzen BTTF prints.

Can someone clarify the variants of this? Is Red the standard version?

^ This. I'm really shocked that people are still buying HCG prints for anything above retail. They still have Vance Kelly's Ghostbusters from NYCC 2016 in stock. When they sold out of his Witch print, they made another variant in a huge edition an entire two years later for the Blacklight Show. It appears they made an infinite amount of his Stranger Things poster. And that's just Vance Kelly's stuff.

Ah, this is a little disappointing to hear. Still, I like The Lost Boys print a lot, so it's not a big deal. I heard it is an edition of 325 though.
