Whoa! Kept saying sold out for me, but I continued to refresh it since it let me keep adding to the cart and it finally went through. +1 Persistence sure worked today.

Great to see people pick up prints they want this weekend. There will still be a ton on the FS/FT page but it's pretty awesome seeing people on here get what they were hoping for. I have to tip my hat to how Mondo handled everything this weekend.

Never give up hope until it shows as "SOLD OUT" in red on the product listing.

Shopify "holds" items in your cart for a set amount of time, once you reach the check out screen. You scored one that fell out of another user's cart who didn't check out in time or abandoned.

Congrats!

All gone.

So Ant Man regular later today seems like a sure thing. I think that will be the only one I pass on. I can't see the shrinking effect working the same way when not printed on foil.

I feel the same way, but I'm hoping they print it a little differently to highlight the effect. Looking forward to seeing some jpegs...

The jury is still out for me on the release. With the movie coming out next week, it seems like a possibility they hold it for Thursday. This is comic con though.

I don't know, it helped that it was a surprise drop.

Of course, those of us who were paying attention this weekend weren't really surprised, lol.
Hey DD, hope you have been well.

I agree on the surprise angle helping, but that paltry run of 175 and folks still nabbing it is kinda crazy these days.
Congrats to all who did. It's one to own for sure.

Don't mean to sound like a beginner here but is this a thing now? Haven't bought a print off Mondo in a while but how different is the new system, do you guys/gals prefer it?

If a kind soul picked up a regular at SDCC and wants to trade for Taylor Regular EFNY, Taylor Pacific Rim or Ansin Avengers Reg, get at me!

Also, way to go Mondo - this has been a lot of fun.

Amazing print. Really bummed I just missed this. :( I was out and about and just wasn't fast enough. Kept trying for 10 minutes and never managed past the inventory issue.

If anyone is feeling generous I'm very much ISO.

I've been loafing around my computer all morning and somehow missed this. My game is off.

Great print.

Pretty cool being able to nab one of these. Solid move on Mondo's part. +1 with breakfast burrito in hand.

Yeah, good way to treat the online community.

Ant-Man's on the table for dropping today but still feels like they'd save it for the movie release this week. But I'm always wrong, so whatevs.
