Part of the problem is they only have rights to Spider-Man's core villains and they are pretty much all second or third tier characters - they all seem obsessed with the green goblin which is a villain I have zero interest in.

Actually these doormats are nothing new. A Japanese company has these for sale for a while now.

Mondo just shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know how much the rest of you know about the poster community (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in other industries where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in the poster community you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the poster community, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase any Room 237 x Mondo products, nor will they purchase any of Mondo's posters. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Mondo has alienated an entire market with this move.

Mondo, publicly apologize and cancel all Room 237 related products or you can kiss your business goodbye.

I thought I was being trolled when I saw that Mondo was selling a rug.

Solid choice. The scarf is probably the most subtle (and affordable) way to get your wink-wink-nudge-nudge on ... inappropriate seasonal timing be damned.
I bought the scarf just in case I need to hang something.

You drama queens act like they directly insulted you. GTFO it's not like if they put up a Horkey Indiana Jones you all would protest by not buying it. You'd still be tripping over yourselves and trying to get your bots in line to buy the next hottest release. Stop acting tough by threatening to boycott.

Buy a rug. That's the first step to being tough.
