Full disclosure: I went and grabbed a metal Tong cos I wanted it as a fan of the film and the art & medium works. Not having to trawl Ebay and deal with flippers makes it a win in my case. Don't care whether the curve goes up, down or sideways 8)
hype!
Dammit, rumbled!

Got a big ISO coming up...

Rubberneck is building a hangar with most of his metals.
He needs it to house the life-size Blade Runner Spinner he's building with the rest of them...

Just a shame they have to let their recently acquired Ken Taylors go, though....
It really was one of my top ISOs that came up for a good price. I figured I would catch some grief over it. But I couldnt pass on this one
What was it?
Ansin Taxi Driver. I really did intend to keep most of the stuff from the KT show. There's still 3 or 4 from the show I won't sell any time soon and already have framed up. I just couldn't pass up on the Taxi Driver when I had the chance

Alright, serious response time: we have reached the point of supply meeting demand.

Why is that? Unclear, but there are many possible explanations.

1. Many flippers realize flipping is only worth it for certain prints, so flippers are no longer buying exverything Mondo puts out.
2. Mondo is putting out so many prints that we have reached a point where buyers only have so much cash they can spend on fancy paper at one time.
3. Quality has degraded on the whole and the prints Mondo is putting out these days are just not as good, and as a result, demand has decreased.

And the true answer is probably a mixture of all three.

(If this statement holds water)
Yeah, I was gonna say it may have more to do with general demand for Robocop prints...

It's okay Alex Murphy, I still love ya. What's left of you, anyway.

Thanks! I'm really stoked to get it. I think it should pair up well next to NCFOM

Anyone think Stout might be having a solo show coming up? Could explain why he's MIA. I'm pretty sure we will see a Stout Guardians of the Galaxy. And if it was the timed edition, even better. That way everyone can have a Stout and there will be a whole lot less butthurt. Just a thought...

This thread needs more Stout conjecture.

Nope. Try again.
