Has anybody even seen any of the new prints in person? There is a lot of hating on the new art but no one has even gotten them yet. I wasn't crazy about some of the first series until I actually got them framed, then ones I didn't "love" at first I stop and enjoy every time I walk down my hallway. And seriously why buy and get involved with getting "Lost" prints if you don't even watch the show, if you don't like the art or don't understand it leave them to the people that do. Or is it that you can't just flip them? Or do some of you just want reprint of the first series? I may be alone, but I quite excited to get these new prints.

I really don't understand the disappointment with this series but then again I didn't get the excitement with the first series

Couple Q's

-Is it safe to assume the last one will drop tomorrow?

-Who the hell is it going to be?

I wasn't overwhelmed by Taylor's Smoke Monster print until I saw a picture of the metallic ink. seeing a pic of the actual print helps a lot.
this one still looks more like Juliet than Kate....and I don't see Claire at all in the top image. I do very much like the layout concept, like it's a graphic novel. similar approach to the one that Burwell took.

I agree completely. Maybe if Ken threw a Terminator in there...
I have ALWAYS hated Claire. Her nasal whining in the first 2 seasons drove me up the wall...

I'd have preferred if the the focus of this print was the temple itself, like Ken's Alien print.

Edit to say that the 'cool' -ness of it would have gone up if it was of the Temple, but this does look cool on it's own merits.

Cut out the gals and give me the center panel by itself and I'd be in. As it is, not so much. Though Taylor's work in person is top notch.

Still need a smoke monster from series 1 btw, should anyone have tired of theirs. :)

My guess is the donkeys who run the poster series are responsible for the images. If I'm not mistaken the artists were given a "scene" to illustrate the first time around.

I wonder if the disinterest in the other 6 prints will drive up demand for Danger's among losties.

it will be interesting to see what the artists sell theirs for if these don't sell out. I don't see the DD's going any higher than they are now, many will wait for him to drop his at lower than market prices.

Not sure how people think the likenesses are so far off in the Taylor. They both look pretty solid to me.

Also, I think I will pick up Tara's. It grabs me much more in portrait orientation. So the sig and # will be on the side... who cares:

ugh, I wish the focus of this print was the temple itself. Would have been a million times cooler. Like Ken's Alien print!

really? Kate and Claire are 2 of my favorite characters on the show!
