I think there are definitely people who buy prints just to flip, with little or no intention of keeping prints for themselves. Hell, if I thought I could make a halfway decent wage (and if I didn't usually want to keep all the prints I buy :lol:), I'd try doing it myself. Camping outside of places and sitting on computers refreshing takes a lot of free time, and it'd be easier without a 9-5 job. :P

Personally, I think Mondo needs a little competition at this point, especially with this much demand.
That would be absolutely faaaaantastic.
Don't worry I'm working on it. Several contacts out. Potential new theater opening in NYC and I am working on some releases in Europe. Nothing like Mondo yet but trust me, I'm working on it.

Excellent. Keep me posted.

If the blues in that IRON MAN pop in the same way that the FORBIDDEN PLANET's blues popped, this one's gonna be hugely in-demand once it starts arriving and people see the difference.

Online pics never do Mondo's stuff justice, but they especially don't do Tong's work/coloring justice.

Exactly.
Glad I'm not the only one. Was it just me, or did that FORBIDDEN PLANET seem to glow in the daylight? This is why IAmBillyG needs to be photographing all of Mondo's stuff for press releases/announcements.

Wow is this guy for real on the Mondo facebook...

Of course its a scam. No one in their right mind would continue this type of business model when they see how much they sell for on ebay. Its simple. Claim there are more in stock than there actually are. Hold the remainder, and sell on ebay. Its exactly what I would do if I had this type of a demand. $45.00 DOESNT sound ridiculously cheap for these types of limited edition posters that sell out in 30 seconds?? Come on. Either mondo is a scammer, or hes a drymounting idiot that doesnt mind people making money off of his work.

I was about to post that, there's a lot of crazies on facebook right now. Here's another:

Hrmm.. so I counted.. and there were over 50 Ebay listing for this. Limited to 320.. hrmm.. Something smells fishy here. For someone who lists it either Before it is on sale.. OR within 1 minute after it is listed for sale on Mondo.. Either a scam.. or like someone else said.. going out the back door.. or going to Alamo in person, purchasing multiple copies.. Just ALL sorts of wrong. Plain and simple.. and for the person who thinks it is NOT BS.. I have yet to see anything in stock.. much less had a chance to put it in my cart.. and then go from there. I agree on fixing the site software to prevent the misappropriation of posters. OR Go to the Lotto/raffle would be the best.
