I am surprised Mondo doesn't have a budget set aside for Justin to buy whatever clothes he needs. Being the face of a company, one would think you would want to represent it well and an investment in some Nike Air Mag's would certainly go a long way. Besides, he could have gotten them for around 3,500. Prices dropped off after first couple of days and you could get them at a reasonable price.
Looking for a place to crash in L.A. for MMM also, need a ride to the events. Will suply food and booze.

I'm curious about this as well. Can anyone fill us in? Starting to get very excited about MMM:LA.

Doubt it would be random, Mondo runs a business not a charity. If they do have variants expect to pay anywhere from 80-200 a pop.

At MMM1, you only paid for a ticket and the poster cost was additional at the time of distribution. You could buy one reg or a reg and a variant per person. At MMM2, the reg poster was included in the ticket price, but you could buy 1 variant per person for $200 (plus tax) extra at time of distribution. I'm assuming that the MMM2 method is what's going to be he norm at future MMMs now.

So: reg comes with ticket, variant is extra at the show (while supplies last).

or, he could buy some nice shoes that aren't completely hideous (I'm referring to the Air Mag's, not whatever shoes he currently wears)

The Gate print looks nice. So does Olly's 'AWIL'. If anybody is heading to the Mondo store soon and wants to be my poster buddy, it would much be appreciated.

i just got back from Mondo

in the flat file:
Several AWILs left (all signed regular no variants)
The Gate
Inkeepers (I really liked this one)
Fantastic Fest poster
The Beyond (and variant)
there might have been 1 or 2 other things there, but nothing earthshattering

Seemed like lots of everything was still available AND the postcard sets for the Moss 2010 RR posters were at the register for $10

so go get over there and clean them out!

Was House by the Cemetery gone?

I was hoping to snag that & The Beyond when Mondo does the online drop.
