I'm quite happy to pretend that all the profits from these prints of questionable content will be used to help acquire the license and likeness rights required to give us a lovely Die Hard print in time for Christmas.

:cheers:

It's not going to be Death Wish - it's going to be Remember the Alamo version 3, where every character's face is replaced with Charles Bronson's.

I know that 10 to Midnight was playing in December last month at a Drafthouse, so I'm thinking its for that movie. Just can't wait to see Stout pull off the Naked serial killer :oops:

I'm thankful for the Kevin Tong series and now AT. I'm new to EB and it gave me the chance to give money to some other sites, even got a Lora Zombie from another member. That has been the only good part about these prints.

So, I would think it safe to say that Kevin's recent series was a dud for most of us here and it looks like the AT series isn't appealing to many either (at least the ones being released tomorrow). I wonder if this is a sign of what many of Mondo's future releases will look like? As Mondo increases in size and popularity, it seems natural to want to expand the collector base beyond the core. To do that, Mondo seems to be trying to rope in a more casual, younger group, and I'm wondering if that will come at the expense of some of the more experienced, long-time supporters? It will certainly be interesting to see how Mondo navigates these waters as it tries to grow and whether it is able to strike the right balance.

I'm not really bothered by the lackluster OUAT series or the AT releases so far. Saves me some money that I can spend on future releases or ISO's.

Already got two of my ISO's from last year. 8)

Pretty sure Mondo needs to sprinkle some AT, TV, and Video Game stuff around so they can prolong the life of their company. There's only so many great movies to go around :P

Its an age old dilemma for any boutique industry; the desire to expand for additional financial gain and exposure but at the cost of exclusiveness and/or possible alienation of the core customer base.

They do tend to throw out the odd cult flick print but more and more it appears they are skewing to a different demographic now...(time to put on the slippers and sit on the porch!)

Let's not talk about Mondo's expansion until they can figure out how to ship prints out in a timely fashion. Seems they have more on their plate than they can handle as it is let alone expanding.

They will be doing sports related fudge at some point. They're the new McFalane Toys.
