People complaining about businesses operating as businesses. Do people really fail to realize that Mondo could care less who gets the poster as long as they get paid for it? Nerd "real fans" entitlement is hilarious.

He's absolutely right. Trader Joe's parking lots are much too small.

Just one thing: Mondo should care, I think. Regardless whether they need to/can fix anything, they go out of their way to reinforce the idea that they are here to cater to fans and collectors, not bots and flippers. I'm sure on some level, they feel the same as artists do when they see their work on ebay at a huge markup.

They have a storefront. How it's technically procured and aftermarket is none of their responsibility or business.

You win some you lose some, too bad not enough people can live by this rule.
It was very kind of Mondo to put items that are hundred and some that are work a couple of thousand for the original cost, I don;t know if nay other company would do that.
Would Apple give you stock at 1985 prices? I think not.

So back down and enjoy what you have.

I'm in Canada and it costs more to ship everywhere, so get over it.

Eh, fans are fickle. Can't please everyone.

I don't think an all-popcorn diet today was a smart call...oof.

It was nice seeing those old pieces with the origins prices. New site, but reminiscent of old times.
Eh, it wasn't that cool.

Some of the most active posters here are huge flippers. I dont doubt they have art on their walls too, but there really is little difference between fans and flippers at this point. More fans flip than flippers existing solely as prospectors with no art interest.

There's still an "Amira & Sam" poster. If you hurry it can be yours for the original cost!

Until Mondo stops making money and selling out. Nothing will change. No point crying.

If that were the case...I don't think they would have put up SWs sets for cost. And bots/flippers are not necessarily the same thing. Just look at the number of FS posts that go up after a Stout lotto, etc. They don't give a fudge and neither should anyone else. You either adapt, die, deal with it or gtfo. No amount of complaining to Mondo is going to change the way they operate. That is pretty obvious.
