Yeah, I've decided they'll be out of my price range for forever...oh well, unless I sell off some of my props to get a set.

I agree, but Batman is Batman and Prometheus is basically Alien. I don't know if Alien would have been the same if it was not R. I know Prometheus has not come out yet and we do not know everything, but I am just basing my thoughts on the trailer. I hope that it is good either way!

Gotta agree with you, I hope that Prometheus is good, but I hope they didn't dumb it down due to the rating, I hate when studios force an obvious R movie down to PG-13. Grrrrrr....

I get what you are saying...there is a certain level of gore that goes with an Alien movie that is not expected from a superhero flick. I honestly would prefer an R rating, but Live Free or Die Hard was a good example too. I thought that movie was going to absolute garbage with a PG-13 rating, but actually the rating didn't really effect the movie.

That said, Alien minus chest bursters and acid melting skin is no Alien :)

Haha yeah that's what I mean, unless I score something I can kind of trade-up with it seems like I won't score a set. Heck I'd be happy just to get the ANH or ESB Stouts by themselves and I'd be happy.

I agree with Live Free or Die Hard. I was skeptical going in because of the rating and I ended up enjoying myself despite the fact that it wasn't rated R

Two examples I can think of was the sequel to Pitch Black, a Riddick movie without the R rating is just not the same, sounds like the next one is going for a hard R rating though, that's what I like to hear. I heard they were going to make the next Expendables a Pg-13 (due to chuck norris perhaps? ha), but sounds like they're going back to R last I heard?

That sucks! I want IB too. But I'd trade anything in my collection for a set.

I trade my Moss Zelda Reg & Var, Mario Reg & Var, for the Stout Star Wars, Ansin Wolfman, Wretched Hive Reg & Var and a couple others...was skeptical about my decision at first, but after I received the prints, I was really happy with all of them. The Stout SW is awesome as is the Ansin Wolfman!!!

I know a lot of people are Stout haters, say his posters are too cluttered, etc. but I love his stuff. I like that you can look at his posters and the different characters and scenes remind you of the movie so well. I only have the Stout CA right now, absolutely love that thing, such an underrated print. I really want his Iron Man 2, I have a space on my wall next to the Stout CA and KT Thor to put it at, and have a Mark V helmet to put under it like I have my other props beneath the other posters

Heck if they'd done a poster for the Norton Hulk movie I'd even get some hulk hands and have them look like they were coming through the wall. hah

Based on the early reviews, I expect them to fast track a Hulk movie ASAP. Most reviewers say he's the best character in the movie and that Ruffalo is much better than Norton. I will believe it when I see it, but that came from more than one person.
