They're technically not APs. It's the arrangement they have with a few of the big names, and have had it for years. Consider it part of their compensation for doing the work. Aaron has the same. I don't see how it would be any different as far as the end result goes.
Its not,if it's not technically a AP. And no Mondo does not have to let everyone know that only ??? will be available. I was just a bit confused how he handled/labeled it.

You must be a super cop to close that investigation.
I've seen the screenshots and had the offers to buy.
My post was all sarcasm. It was meant to be a joke.

Gone back and edited it since.
I just was just being a smart ass myself with the analogy.

Ummm Tyler does have an AP run labelled x/y AP. The thing is, he gets part of the regular run AS WELL AS a separate AP run. For those who've bought from Stout before, sometimes you get a signed regular run and sometimes you get a signed AP run (which is even harder to get). It's pretty exciting to see which one you get when you open the tube.

I am just wondering why though? whats the advantage to the artist to not have APs and to split the run?

45 minutes later and the whining continues on all fronts. Meanwhile, the site STILL doesnt say 'sold out'. :shock:

if you're really that upset about bots, you should try and join one. There is actually competition amongst the various subscriptions for memebers, they want you more than you think. :pint:

Yep, it's part of what he negotiated, being paid via a portion of the run. Think the minutiae of it is part of that agreement though, that it's a portion of the existing run (and APs stay a percentage of the run) instead of Mondo getting one run while he gets another. Besides, he's gonna have an artist-exclusive variant anyway now...

Question: Why do 90% of the ebay listings come from sellers with less than 200 feedback? Basically, how are amateurs scoring these? We talk about all these tricks of the trade, but a lot of the re-sales seem to come from guys who are inactive the other 360 days a year... Maybe all they try for are big money posters, but tricking out bots and F5ing for hours seems like a lot of work for just a $200 payoff after fees and shipping.

In terms of fixing Mondo: random drop time but open edition for one minute of sales. Keeps 'limited' and 'collectable' buzz words alive and well.

You keep saying "fix" like there is a problem that Mondo would have a vested interest in fixing.
