You had to pay extra for that.
I understand people need to make a living, but it irks me whenever I hear about "celebrities" getting fans to pay them for signatures and pictures. It's one of the things I hate about conventions.

I'm about to buy a signed Mondo poster for *cough* a lot of cash. So I'd say yes, it's way worth it for a person selling, and way worth it for the buyer! Especially if you are in love with the movie and its actors, and the poster, it's just a killer combination.

I got my NOTLD signed by Romero, and (in my mind at least) its now one of my prized possessions. I guess they are only 'ruined' if you have them personalized and want to resell them. As a collector, I think it adds a nice personal touch.

Don't want to put you on the spot or have you reveal something you don't want to but any chance you want to share what you are buying and for how much?

I've been curious since I got my Ansin "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" print signed by most of the cast, director and DP. Not that I am ever going to sell it, I just get curious about the cost of stuff.

I'll tell you at the end of the month ...

Just saying though, I'd buy that poster in a heartbeat. We should work something out when you're willing to sell (and I have cash again) :)

Thanks. I got lucky that they had a screening at the theater down the street but half the cast left before signing, then they had a signing event at Amoeba. I had nothing else to do that day so I went and got some more signatures.

Here's who signed it:
Edgar Wright x 2 (he wrote a x2 because I saw him at both events and he remembered me(print), he also wrote in a "vs" under the Scott Pilgrim)
Bryan Lee O'Malley
Bill Pope (DP)
Michael Cera
Jason Schwartzman
Mark Webber
Brandon Routh
Brie Larson
Mae Whitman
Satya Bhabha
Johnny Simmons
Anna Kendrick
Aubrey Plaza
Mary Elizabeth Winstead


So the main people that didn't sign are:
Ellen Wong
Kieran Culkin
Chris Evans
Alison Pill

I'm pretty sure if I was looking at two prints to buy and one had signatures from cast members and one didn't I'd choose the one that did in a heartbeat.
