Surprised Woldman prints are still available, but I did think the design was the weakest of the bunch.
The illustration is a little wonky but conceptually the wolf man is lights years ahead of the rest of the posters. As nice as the edmiston is, it’s boring/safe as are the rest of the prints. The wolf man concept drymounting rules.
I agree the Wolfman is a solid effort, I just don't love it enough to buy. I shamefully still haven't framed my Ansin. I want to like the Edmiston but it looks too . . . shiny/plastic-y. It's lacking a certain vintage look, more like some of his toy packaging (which it may be). I copped the Francavilla because I just dig his style. I think his IM is still the best for that title.

Also, if Mondo is going to DHM it up with the Peanuts, I want an "I got a rock" poster. Seems like a missed opportunity.

I think his style lends itself best to UM.

Edmiston’s are based on the old Aurora model kit packaging.

Nice find, I've enjoyed his takes so far!

Those inserts are really cool. Are they going to be released as prints or just box covers?

Aren't they existing box covers for old models? I don't think they have anything to do with Mondo other than the fact Edmiston used them as reference for prints.

They are from the 60s-70s, as mentioned above Edmiston used them as a style reference, most prominent in the variant colour choices.

Got an email from Mondo saying the RAD poster won't be shipped till Nov now, I emailed them last month and they said they hoped to be shipped by the end of Oct, so much for that lol.

Have they ever been two months late on shipping something?

What ever happened to only selling when in hand, huh?

I am tired of all these places releasing limited editions when they havent even been printed. Who's the flipper now?

With covid, and print shops backed up with limited work schedules, this has added at least a couple months to most online sellers orders.

Most places have offered refunds if you have wanted them.

Lady Laz is printing and is notorious for insanely long delays. So it'll be a wonder if these are in hand before 2021.
