Ultimately, the site everyone really wants is the one that gets them successful purchases. No matter what Mondo builds or buys, the limited nature of these drops paired with the high volume of purchasers makes it seem unfair. If there were a real solution for getting posters to those who really want them most (and not just for resale), that'd be great. I've never heard of one, though. Schemes to make the process more "fair" are all easily thwarted and all end up being a PitA instead of a real solution.

It is what it is. The process is still fun for me. When I don't get the item I wanted (and, believe me, there have been a lot), I file it under, "Oh well. It's just stuff. There will be another Mondo poster soon."

I wonder how many of those sourpuss anti-bots people would change their mind if they were offered a bot right this instant...

Well duh because then they would feel like they have even the score....Until they miss out and then they will complain about someone having a booster or better bot connection

I was watching a video earlier on youtube of guys using shopify bots for sneakers (these ones were linked to twitter announcements) and it was ridiculous how quickly it went from the tweet being sent to the thing having the sneakers sat in a cart - it was less than a second and there was just no way that a mere human could compete (though obviously this wouldn't work with Mondo as we all know if you wait for the tweet its already too late :lol:)
If you aren't familiar with the sneaker game, it makes Mondo sell outs look like timed releases.

FYI, if you're thinking a buying some, there are some codes floating around for 10% off.
Just email Robert, and ask for the 10% off if you cannot find a code or have problems finding one. He's top notch.

And yes, the frames are a steal. I get tired of the same thing over time, so the fact that it looks great, is protected from the sun, extremely reasonable price wise, and can be switched out whenever I want is a no brainer.
Wonkabars7!!!! Thank you very much for passing the word, and thank you for the kind words!!! I went into google analytics to see why my website was getting so many hits yesterday lol!!! Wish I could get my SEO for my website to perform like that. Really means a lot!!! Please e-mail me at my business e-mail sales at spotlightdisplays.com Thanks again!!!!

And thank you to all that have ordered!!! Your frames will be cut in the next few days! You will love them!!! I just got done changing one of my prints with the new Tom & Jerry: The Two Mousketeers by Anne Benjamin. Looks Awesome!!!!!

Thanks Again to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate this knucklehead and his dumb idea of supply needing to meet demand. What he really wants is access to anything he fancies. He's a modern day Veruca Salt. I look forward to the day he gives up because he has made this thread awful.

Oh snaps! It takes a lot to get on Erin's bad side. Harsh words, I like it

Not gonna lie, put a smile on my face right here. :lol:

Have zero capacity to put up any non-extremely-light frames but this is absolutely on my purchase list, thanks for sharing again wonka.
