From an Alamo email:
And we're proud to announce, we have not one, but TWO exclusive limited edition FORCE AWAKENS merchandise items.

The first is an officially licensed Mondo-designed pint glass — a welcome addition to any home or cantina.
The second is our first ever, double-sized collector’s issue of our very own magazine, BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH., featuring a Mondo cover and celebrating 40 years of the STAR WARS saga.

Really? I'd put it well behind Ansin, Taylor, and Durieux. Different strokes.

Yep. Taylor's is a well-illustrated, unique approach. Burton's is hackneyed, and appears flat, fuzzy, and simple to me. For my taste, Taylor just appears more skilled. Burton's Dracula doesn't do much for me either.

At least it makes for wonderful advertisement for Delorean. I'm looking into getting one http://www.dmccalifornia.com/ Only $13,000 for a new Delorean off the line.

Struzan/Taylor is number one for me and is a screenprinting marvel followed by the Ansin variant which I think is one of the most underrated prints ever but I agree if the Burton looks anything like his Dracula in person it's gonna look fuzzy and flat for sure.

The Frank jpeg looks great to me but there's something about the monster that looks off to me. I still cant wait to get it though.

Hold off and get one that's electric. You don't want to get stuck in 1885 without any gas.

Si. Ansin's is a cereal box monster. Maybe Taylor's piece beats it now that I think on it. Not the biggest fan of ld's. Ended up not buying this tho. Might be time to save for a struzan.

Unless there's another Delorean there already that you could easily borrow some gas from before storing it in a cave for 70 years.
