I wonder if after the last couple of early drops, they're going to take it easy and do it later that usual...

Yeah, he has a nice following and is one of my absolute favs... but in the immediate months afterwards you can always grab them for cost.
I think Mummy is going to stay up in price for a while...

So you'll sell me your Moss Star Wars or Stout Kill Bill "for cost, or close to it"?

Maybe... but it has 3 different ones out there, none with tiny runs. So there will be plenty, imo. The price on some of Ansin's older prints has started to climb rapidly. Maybe he has made it... :lol:

I was totally meh on the Captain America prints, then they popped up, I grabbed the Stout variant and Moss set, went to check out and was then asked to log in. System had somehow kicked me out. I then did so but resigned to the fact I'd probably loose both or all, but the system went thru its process and I checked out sucessfully. It took longer than normal but I scored :?

Other days, I hover on the page, jump on the add to cart on the first refresh and lose the print at checkout....

There is still an element of luck to this process...makes it fun though!

Crossing my fingers here. If I manage to snag one, it'll be my first Ansin. As a total Universal Monsters dork, I've loved his entire run, but haven't had the coin to grab the Bride and Phantom prints. Glad to see that "The Mummy" is pretty much every ounce their equal.

If I'm at my computer, I am undefeated. But if keogh is not going for anything else, he is probably your best bet as I am going for a poster. :wink:

And if you can get your hands on "A Wretched Hive" I cannot recommend that enough if you are an Ansin fan. Got that one from ironjaiden at a hookup price. It is gorgeous.

Well, my only miss so far has been Sanctuary Moon. I scored both versions of Stouts Star Wars, Stouts Kill Bill, Ansins Bride, etc. Today will be a failure though.

I forgot earlier that I also owned the regular Wretched Hive at one point, but I gave it to a friend because I knew it wouldn't make the walls. (I am having enough trouble convincing my significant other to let me hang the Stout SW set and display some other smaller SW stuff, so plastering the walls with tons of different SW posters just wasn't going to fly. :() Wretched Hive is indeed a beautiful piece.
