Wasn't trying for anything today. Sounds like there were hiccups. Interesting.

I woke up early for uber refreshing. decided to take a quick break to make a burrito. When I got back to the computer I was in the middle of the mondo fudge storm and ended up +0 too. :hanging:

Thanks to the generous EBer who helped me get a WTWTA. :notworthy: The GF is going to like that one (hopefully)

Ill take one of those WTWTA off somebody's hands for a bit above cost tho. Trust me it will look like crap in person and let me also remind you of how terrible the film was. :P

The struggle is real. :hanging:

If you wait you will probably be able to get one at cost or below.

Love Delort, great initial piece, but the movie was garbage and not a very exciting property on which to debut such a talented new artist. Its like Ewen McGregor in SW, fudge lines, but the man somehow made them decent because he is an awesome actor.

Can't believe people were actually fighting to get these. That Jaws is about as generic looking as you can get. I am not a fan of LD's take on it either, but at least it was very original and complimented his style and technique. This on the other hand looks like Hero Complex Gallery fan art. I am beginning to think less and less of Mondo's supposed high standards when it comes to art direction and approvals.

They are a machine now though and will sell out of anything they drop. Sad really.

WTWA looks good though- more reminiscent of the book as opposed to the movie. Whatever wavers from that god-awful film that Spike cranked out is an improvement.

I guess I'm in the minority here when I say I liked the WTWTA movie, but I don't think I'd want a print for it

Well, if there's a minority, there's at least two of us. I wouldn't want a print for the movie, especially one as boring as that. Then again, I haven't watched the movie once since seeing it in theaters, and I own it.
