I always have to refresh "The Drop" 3-4 times before the prints show up. Otherwise, checkout was pretty smooth this time.

posters didn't show up for awhile. Halloween was sold out by time I could even add to cart. great poster tho
Happened to me as well and something I've noticed the last couple times I've tried (The Crow). I'm just refreshing the Drop page. Anyone else doing something different and having better luck?

You're already on 'The Drop' page when you're refreshing right? I'm assuming you're not starting from the main page, clicking 'The Drop,' then refreshing. Thanks

Didn't even see the poster until it popped up as SOLD OUT. Refreshed multiple times too. What the actual drymount?!

Mondo got hit hard with the scripts this morning, didn't load for a while, got to pay and gone within 5 secs of showing up. Poster collecting isn't as fun with all these sneaker head funko fcuk boys running bots to buy anything that is remotely good.

pretty sure this is related to the way they are dynamically loading the content from the server after the page loads. they are most likely getting so many requests a ton take forever to actually return data which is why nothing shows up for a lot of people. bots for the win.

Yeah, watch the counter hit zero and the page auto-refreshes but nothing shows up.

Okay, that's what I was doing too. Congrats on snagging Halloween if that's what you got.

Refreshed the drop. took a few refreshes to show up.

i wouldn't wait for the timer to have it just show up.

i also have the property and artists searched in a separate tab and refresh those too.

I refreshed pretty much every few seconds from the 30 seconds mark on the timer and once the timer had disappeared there was still nothing there for about a minute (maybe less) but by the time it did appear it was sold out. I even tried filtering by artist in a new tab too but that seemed to also be lagged. It must be a combination of the amount of traffic or bot activity on the page, location of servers, and obviously the small run size but I've never experienced this problem before since they launched The Drop and I scored The Crow, Star Wars Foil, and a couple others from the same computer at work. Just sucks that I didn't appear to have a fair shot on this occasion.

Same for me except posters popped up probably 20-30 secs after. Probably just my shitty internet.
