That's crazy. People could be selling them as they hold them in carts.
Need to cut that sheeeat down to 1-2 minutes.
stay in the cart for 5 mins
When it gets down to one print apparently left in inventory (like with this phantom variant Gladiator) don't you think it is more of a glitch than it actually could be purchased by someone who keeps trying for another hour to checkout? (BTW - Question is not specifically directed to anyone quoted above ... just a question.)

Someone developed a bot for the sole purpose of trolling Mondo and this test run was a success.

Here is how I understand the cart system to work. I believe assuming a 1:1 ratio of carting your selection and that meaning you have your print as you race to check out is incorrect. It is really only when you checkout from the payment process that locks the print up to you. That last sentence may seem obvious, but let me explain it this way.

Let's say a print has an edition run of 100. There are 500 tokens assigned to the 100. Tokens are a buyers "wish" to purchase a product. Once it is dropped and we all click on "add to cart", you add one of the 500 tokens. You are not actually securing one of the 100. Then it is a race to the end to cash in your token for one of the available 100.

To me, this would explain oversells and stagger. I could be wrong. It's just been my working theory over the last year or so.

15% of the run? Sounds about right.

No. it's much less complicated than that. It is simply a race to the checkout screen, the first step after your hit checkout on your cart. You pass this, you have the print secured unless you do soemthing to fudge it up.

... That said, there's no way anyone could top this one, a vintage 1960 French one-sheet I picked up last year:

im hoping we will get an eyes without a face print in the show.
This was my first thought as well...the original French film that everyone and their brother in Hollywood has ripped off, especially in the horror genre.

The small French paper you have here is awesome, been on my list for some time.
I need it to go with the corresponding large 47x63 original French, also designed by Mascii (one of the best poster artists of all time), that I picked up from EMP several years back:

Best set eva.
