I knew the drop was going to happen when my co-worker came over to ask for my garbage, had two phone calls, and another person walked in asking about stuff.

At least I got 1. But I'm so annoyed at everyone right now, drymounting work is driving me nuts. If I didn't get wasted yesterday, I would get wasted again today.

Two hopes...P&T has some Ansin's available (if only they could stop double-dippers) and, more likely, next week's drop has a huge run size

well +1 on the GID!!!!!


went right for it, then hurried out as fast as i could, which was surprisingly smooth (it was not smooth) for the most part.

i think this was the best 'high' i have ever gotten from a mondo drop!

Sorry to all those that missed out, this was a drymounted up day.

i agree either just get paypal buttons that takes you straight there or reserve your cart, or at least one item in your cart. stagger the prints and set times. idk just seems like such a pot shot, probably won't be going for anymore. better things to do with my time then waste nearly half a day refreshing a page.

if it was for a date with scarlett then ok but for a poster, eh not worth it.

congrats to everyone who scored!

Their business is driven by hype, it'll 'build excitement' (not for me though). Most of the suckers who just wasted half a day will be back for the next print and Mondo know it, that's why nothing will change.

Well 5 drops, 5 white screens in a row. Used to be able to get every mondo I wanted. Not sure of I've been doing something wrong the last two months.

My boss called my phone right as the posters went live. Had to multitask. +1 Iron Man Reg to add to yesterday's +1 Cap.

+ big fat nothing. I'm calmer than I was, but god damn, that was a complete waste of the day (EB hilarity not withstanding).

This fudge was so drymounted I couldn't even load the "reasonably-priced" eBay auctions before they disappeared into the "sold" ether.
