......and Gremlins. Maybe it's time to hire some more help guys. I'm sure there's some P/T help in the budget. Every poster release generates soomebodys yearly salary.

It's poor how slow they are to ship sometimes.

IMO they shouldn't be selling posters until they have them in hand ready to post.

I am waiting on shipping for two different posters ordered in December. Frustrating.

Yeah I agree with you on this one. Obviously rushing to get at least one poster out a week whether or not they've printed them or not. It's pretty poor.

I can imagine in their early days it may have been a cashflow thing. Now I can't see this being an excuse.

I have seen people say it's release dates. Having to put things up for sale before licenses run out etc. Logistically though you should have this worked out way in advance.

Let's hope it's something on their agenda to improve.

I think they do business this way to prevent someone leaking the info out. That way they have it under wraps with way fewer lips to be loose.

That is something I hadn't taken into consideration and makes sense.

I can appreciate a slight delay with that in mind.

This looks familiar...would you slide the plastic film over it? Did this system have ET (going after reese's pieces) and some type of Dungeons and Dragons game where you'd see rat poop ?
Yup. I thought ET (worst video game of all time) was Atari, but the D&D was intellivision.

YES! That is it!

BTW, would love an Aliens print. Wearing Depends to work that day if so.

Hasbro subsidiary that owns [D&D], announced that a new edition is under development, the first overhaul of the rules since the contentious fourth edition was released in 2008. And Dungeons & Dragons’ designers are also planning to undertake an exceedingly rare effort for the gaming industry over the next few months: asking hundreds of thousands of fans to tell them how exactly they should reboot the franchise.

There were contentions? Among nerds? I refuse to believe this.
just a foil for me today, thanks

I would imagine they would have shipped quickly as they were prepared for the screening were they not?
