With Geena Davis??

I too am now undecided. May end up going for the reg. Glyphs just seem out of place as strange as that sounds. Maybe if they weren't red.

I like the idea of the hieroglyphics, but there's not quite enough there to fill up that large area devoted to the text. They look cooler when they are smaller and there are more of them, as seen above and below the title. But I guess there's just not enough to fill that space and they end up looking a little oversized and without the stylization we get with the English text on the regular.

Where's my Struzan?! Trying to save for a potential expense, if I just know whether I'm going to get one or not I could channel those funds into other posters...

That being said, I love Ansin's work so I'm going to have to try for a reg...Like a few on here I prefer the colours of the variant and although the glyphs are a good idea it just doesn't do it for me aesthetically, I prefer the English "The Mummy". And the reg is slightly cheaper. :)

Anyway, good luck to everyone with the drop!

I love cool colors but the glyphs look like they were copy/pasted in mspaint.
