Tried to limit best I could, good news is there are five photos, with groups that came together (?).

Didn't buy a ton in '15, but what I snagged and found, I am pleased with. Bear with me..

---

Started the year out right with this Edmiston OG, my fav of the show, of one of my fav films/characters of all time:

Image

This one took awhile to find, as anything bigger than the one sheet is increasingly hard to find (much like Hitchcock titles lately) and getting more costly each time something from the original release surfaces somewhere. Been after this To Kill a Mockingbird three sheet (41x81") for over 6 years now and scored it for a bargain. Literally fell into this, just got lucky. Next to be sent over to be restored on linen:

Huge fan of Jeff Delgado, and highly encourage you guys to check him out and follow him on IG as he randomly offers commission spots. Got lucky on this set too, the trio of BTTF canvases he had in a LA gallery show (forget the name of it right now). These aren't the Society 6 ones you can order, they are of a unique format/measurement (9x14"ish?) and are signed, which he told me he never does:

Image

Been collecting Mondo since 2007, and up till this Ansin Drac drop, I had no problem getting anything (pre bot era). This was the first drop I was away for a few seconds and it was gone. It was agonizing, as I prefer this over all his other stuff besides the Bride duo. Really happy to pick up the AP from Mitch, and not spend more on ebay which has been tempting me since I failed with this 5 years ago:

Image

Also a huge fan of Levi Hastings, and his amazing work with watercolors. We commissioned him on something several years back and when he randomly threw the BB-8 watercolor OG on the internets I had to have it. My pitch to also taking the Rey OG when he released a pic was it is easy to put two pieces in a single package and be done with it :) The depth/texture/movement he gets with watercolors is really something:

How come nobody knows math until somebody else breaks the "rules"?

Thanks, appreciate it. Mockingbird was the highlight of the year, for sure. Delgado is amazing, nice guy too.

Forum police out in full force today.

Is there a thread on EB that stays on topic or adheres to the 'rules' the OP intended, post by post?

Maybe if "official" was added to the title the chances of 5 would have increased..?
This is the only thing that keeps me from discussing The English Patient in the Official Horror Movie Thread, obvs.
