We get a Drew Struzan art print for The Thing, people bitch.

We get rules clearly spelled out for us, people bitch.

A good chunk of EBers are PBing and selling these to other board members AT COST, people bitch about flippers buying all the copies.

I think people may just be worried, myself included, that this doesn't always happen. Look at the gallery for instance. Not every print made it online from those sales. I never got a fair shot at a Brazil variant online.

best line.. "Well, that's what happens. Leave me alone and I'll deliver an iconic poster."

I'm beyond stoked about this. had this same theory as soon as they announced the Thing Summer of 82.

Thats the whole point .. You dont know anything for sure. So unless it comes down from Mondo that they will be holding some back for an online drop, nothing is for sure.

after all this back and forth about the screening/posters..did anyone else read the interview with him? pretty great stuff. Also, basically in a nutshell, he subliminally said we should all be ashamed of ourselves holding him back from his goal in life which is to create his own work haha poor guy.

He seems like the perfect guy to shoot the fudge and have a beer with.

Yup. I emailed him some questions about the Walking Dead poster and he sent a very cordial, friendly reply. Would love to shoot the fudge with him.

I'll just say this for anyone hyperventilating over no online drop:

Grab a paper bag, put it to your mouth, take 10 deep breaths, wait a week or two.
