Past time someone who has a legit spot in that line let fly with some knuckles on the cutters. They obviously don't give a fudge about you.

Tell that to Olly, he only sold 2,100+ 5x5 giclee's for $35 shipped in one hour. By that standard, $40 is cheap. Not only that, but people are still forking out more than that on the aftermarket for those pokemons, which aren't near as popular as batman.

Olly drop was a clusterfuck. Security counts us one hour before they finally start selling prints and says "you're all good for posters" only to tell over 100 people who had been there for 1.5 hours to get lost like rude assholes with zero explanation.

This drop should be an embarrassment for Mondo. Just a huge waste Of time and unbelievably frustrating.

I wonder what made Mondo decide to do a timed release. I could have sworn there was a Justin interview where he was very adamant about limited.

The print appealed to me right away...on first look. I find it to be v-e-r-y masculine...sexy lookin' through my feminine eyes.

Okay, I'll admit I'm not crazy about the bat symbol. I still want it.

Timed is still considered limited, it's not like an open edition or anything. 24 is on the incredibly long side of timed but still limited to that time frame.

It's the lure of being added to the Guinness book of Records.

I'm sure the license wasn't cheap. They need to pay for it some how. Plus this probably pays for other licenses in the future.

My grandmother always raved about Charles Atlas. He was the fitness instructor at the summer camp she went to in the Catskills. Being the only Italian there, they really hit it off. She used to go on and on about what a gorgeous man he was... and she absolutely hated people who cut in line.

True story... well, maybe a bit of creative license was taken with the last part... but...
