Oh and maybe BTTF, and I hope it's a good one that features the DeLorean.

Matchs gets it.
I really don't think he does. Mondo has had 0 problems selling those prints (ok, maybe not adventure time) in a matter of seconds. Why should they constantly release posters for new movies when they can release 3 a week using the same license that is already bought and paid for? People who don't like it should just pretend that Mondo only releases the stuff they really like for properties they haven't touched before and ignore the other releases instead of pretending that they should only ever release posters for new properties that they personally really like. God knows I don't buy most of the garbage they release.
You know that was sarcasm.

I think already posted why they have so many posters for the same properties. Cliff notes version : they don't seek out 9 artists to cover the same property. Mo said that when they acquire a new license, a ton of people want to do a print for it and that also happens as a license is expiring. Oh and they also want to make $$$$$$. #greedymondo

Moar Robocop! :pint:
Robo looks great. Really not digging Lewis though - something looks a little strange.

Overall though, it's pretty sweet.

Good post - I don't agree that these posters look great (to me) - but nothing wrong with having artists do the same movie if they produce something interesting or that clicks with you - I would love to see a Delort LOTR movie or Frankenstein print for example

I think you're spot on with the Delort comment in particular. Those would both be very cool to see done.

I think all this talk about lisences will stop when we see what they release at SDCC and Mondo Con -- Mondo has always delivered and if we wait I think we will all be happy. Makes me think of that interview Justin gave earlier this year. Mondo might be saturating the market right now by releasing more and more and more posters of the same movies over and over and over again, but when everything sells out, why not? I don't believe for a second that they are not working their butts off to get more and more lisences to release more and more posters. This hobby is only getting stronger! So take a pass today. I know I will. But, I am still always excited to see what is next

I kinda like the blue fight club, but I managed to talk myself out of it. Tough to capture one moment, and for me that isn't it.
