True .. But thankfully this poster isnt one for the masses (I personally love taylors work) .. and all 50+ prints that are on ebay will sell for cost or less .. Some karma there :) Maybe that will scare off a lot of the noob flippers!!

A lot of us scored the prints though and love them. I am so glad I got one but it does suck to have that many on ebay so fast. Great job mondo, keep it up. :clap:

That's why it sells out so fast -- people trying to make the quick buck. Although, it appears that this Thor poster is going to produce a bunch of failips, once shipping is factored in.

Looks like someone made an entire $5 off one of those Thor prints on eBay. :lol:

I've only been collecting since '07. But, from what i've seen over the past 4 years, seems that flipping will soon be a thing of the past, with the annual Banksy flip being the exception. There's just too many people doing it, partnered with too many drops by "flippable" artists, it's a formula for a flipper economy collapse. The end is nigh.

If someone is flipping it with free shipping, then the price they have to get in order to break even is, what, $70-75? A lot of these will failip.

The unexpected prices Steamboat Willy is going for means alot more folks snapped up 'The Little Hen' and there are 37 now on ebay. :hanging:

The larger run seems to have kept prices lower though...

BIN are around $100 incl P&P but dropping... :P

Think it is good you are pointing it out, maybe all this failiping will stop it for a bit...but if the right artist/movie combination comes around you know the flippers will show up, just is what it is. I don't think there will be a Cinemapocalypse or a Saputo Iron Man 2 (no offense, just were in the store for awhile) because of the flipping

I agree. Even with the in store release, the larger run seems to have curbed ridiculous prices right out of the gate. They may go back up, but those looking to make a buck got stung a bit. Which is good. (And it is less MUST HAVE then Steamboat for a Disney fanatic)

I would love a propaganda-ish Captain America. 8)
