Dan McCarthy: Firstly, I wanted to represent the landscape in Lost. I feel that it adds so much to the show. Secondly, I wanted to create a subtle narrative within the poster. From a distance, I wanted it to just look like a landscape, but upon closer inspection (and knowledge of the show) I wanted it to be clear that it was for Lost.
Exactly why I like his poster.

Everyone seems to answer Kate over Juliet for that last question. Tong and Doyle had some thoughtful answers, but Leia Bell had the best one for her option of choosing between Jack and Sawyer:
Leia Bell: If that’s asking who should end up with Kate, my answer is I don’t think she deserves either one of them.
(NERD TOPIC: I'm partial to Juliet - more intelligent and has a more likable demeanor, but I was a Kate fan for a few season before).

Bet somebody thought they were getting a S/N edition from Stout and was sorely disappointed.

Thanks for the link to the interviews. Those were a good read.

Is there not any way to report those fraudulent ebay listings?

TBH, the guy couldn't have been more up-front about the fact that the print was not part of the s/n edition... at least with regards to the Gallery '88 print above

The guy used photos of the print though and he also refers to it as a print and a poster. I am sure they knew what they were doing when they listed it. Oh well, there is an idiot for every scammer out there. Reminds me of when the Xbox 360s first went on sale and someone put up an Xbox Box and it sold for over 700. He even said this is just the box.

The poster says The Final Season...that does not. Those are pictures of the print. Not too legit.

anyone buying one of these should do their research. yeah, maybe the guy should have used a better picture, but to complain that he didnt make it clear what he was listing is ridiculous.

sometimes people are dumb/dont know any better/or are lost fan retards. all of this works in favor of the Stout Lithos going for big money.

Were all the lithos signed by Damon & Carlton?? That could be the difference

No they were not all signed. You had to get them to sign it. Yeah the buyer of that auction is an idiot, but the seller is fraudulent for mis-representing their item. I hate fudge like that. Sure they should do research, but I get pissed when you research a hotel or restaurant online and it looks awesome in the pictures but you get there and it is a dump. Lesson learned for them I am sure.
