I'm sure I'm missing a lot, this is just want I can remember;

Ansin - Dracula (3)
Ughh - I'd been waiting to get a replacement on a damaged Dracula forever. They finally shipped me a replacement only for it to arrive with even worse damage - a giant crease through the center of the image. With no more mint replacements left, I've been patiently waiting to see if they could at least swap it for one with flaws that would frame out. I'm happy you guys scored, but bummed that it looks like they sold off my last hope at a decent replacement.

:hanging:
Okay that really stinks, sorry that has been happening.

Billy, you're a jerk for not getting me that Robocop I asked for. I never want to talk to you again you jerk!

It will be used to terrify a 9 year old girl, so it will be VERY welcome once it gets here! :twisted:

Oh, and just love this print for some reason... Not usually a movie poster guy.

War of the worlds is a pretty wild print. It got lost in the shuffle with all the other crazy gallery stuff.

Pretty happy with my regular Ansin Drac I picked up today. Not too shabby for getting there at 11:30. And I can't find a damn thing wrong with it save for a tiny little crease on the side. Can't believe some of the things people send back to Mondo.

Congrats to you dudes on the super dedication staying overnight. You deserve those scores! It was good seeing all of you, too.

Love reading through this thread to see some of the dedication and scores some of you have had!

I'm fairly new to the game but I appreciate the guys who are cool to us new guys on the forum and don't treat us like crap. I've had some bad experiences sometimes but it seems like everyone is pretty helpful here.

Was introduced to mondo awhile back but could never manage to score a poster until last year's San Diego comic-con with the free Stout Captain America litho they gave out at the screening.

Finally scored my first (real) Mondos a couple weeks back with the Jock "Last House on The Left" & Tong "Hugo". Also have picked up a "Bridesmaids" for my sister, the Richard "John Carter" and got the money together to get my first ISO which was the Richard Jurassic Park.

Today I checked out Cabin in The Woods and immediately had to go grab the Mondo poster for it. Managed to find a guy in Canada (where I am from) and grabbed it. Anyway, just thought I'd send a post out to say cheers and good luck hunting. I gotta build up some cred so people on here don't mind selling and trading to me. Have a good one!

Happily picked up Comin At Ya. Considered Drac, but decided to not spend the $20 extra bucks and continue my IJ collection. :pint:

My acquisition is already in my FT. ;) But I didn't grab anything highly valuable, and I would just as much love to hold on to it as any other outcome.

What'd ya end up with?

congrats to those who scored. I went drinking at a brewery instead and feel just as happy as those who got their ISOs... :pint:
