This show ain't over yet...

My intention of this thread was to show the confusing nature of getting a shipping notification two years later. Then my burning the print was simply venting some frustration at the whole ordeal.

Roman emailed today and apologized for the nature of the print. He also sent a return label for the damaged variant. I told him I burned it and sent the video. Roman has sent another variant my way and I received that tracking number today.

I applaud him for wanting to make this right. :clap: I'm not here to bad mouth anyone or any company. I just want a nice resolution. I'll keep everyone posted.

Keep that popcorn cooking...

You should mention something about interest and see if he will throw some cash in the tube as well.

I'd be afraid of what's going to be smeared on this new variant.

...Also, how many does he have on hand to ship? :shock:

Roughly 4 years into collecting and the last two weeks have been the most entertaining period of said 4 years.
