Indiana Jones has yet to get its fair shakes worth of quality/licensed prints. It might be the most underrepresented properties from mainstream film to paper in this hobby.

I would agree, there seem to be a decent number of the prints, but not many like you said that are licensed. Also, most of the prints that do have close up likenesses just weren't close enough to really make them a home run IMO.

I'm curious, is this in general or from a commissioned vs licensed perspective or either. One poses more challenges than others, as you might expect.

Personally, I haven't seen a show stopping pacific rim. There are plenty I like, but none that make me go, "damn! would ya look at that"

I'm going to call Pans Labyrinth underserved until Mondo does a screen print for the Struzan artwork.

I would say both, I was curious about people's opinions, but I think it's most interesting when there is a movie that some or most think is well represented but another might not agree. Personally, I don't care much for Pacific Rim, and would never try to acquire a print from that movie, but that said, I think Gabz's PR print is awesome, but I generally like everything he does, so that's me.

Don't get me wrong, of all of them out there this one might be my favorite, it just isn't the definitive one for me. It might actually just be the colors.

In my top 3 all time. I want a print for this movie so bad. No one today seems to dig it but the movie is drymounting incredible. Book is great too.
