Two Face feels like a missed opportunity to have a timed edition so that people could buy two and display them together. Double sided print is cute but pointless. Nice image as always from PCC but neither work as well without the other IMO

I have yet to see a foil print that's more impressive than regular. I guess I haven't seen the right prints, but every time I've chosen foil, I wish I hadn't. Glad the timed edition is just normal-person paper. :)

I agree with the Star Wars poster fatigue, but...I do like this one. And the Ansin Rogue One is the only Rogue One poster I've liked. Luke is a strangely difficult likeness to get just right (Exhibit A: literally every time he appears in a Marvel comic book), and this one looks really good.

$150 is just silly.
If Mondo sells prints for $50 and then they sell for $150-$200 plus on eBay right after a sell out, then Mondo asking $100-$150 is actually pretty reasonable.

According to eBay buying that Ansin Star Wars foil for $150 from Mondo was a good idea.

am I getting old or is Mondo making this way more confusing than it needs to be lol. wasn't sure if this was dropping in "the drop" part of site or the comic-con page. Also wasn't sure what all was going on sale right now since images were still blurred and I thought they said somewhere that all products would be revealed a few hours in advance.
I don't like their website because

1) It keeps kicking me to the home page whenever I click 'Pay'
2) I think it's ugly and confusing, I much preferred the simple design and functionality they had before they moved
3) I'm a bit butthurt about missing that Ansin variant

Did they let a bunch of plebs in the Facebook circlejerk group? Cringe level is off the charts over there.

If anyone can make a movie poster shine using foil, it's Ansin. I'm not a big fan of foil in general but his prints look consistently good using it. Those I have seen, anyway.
