Hahaha. My exact reaction as well.
Not poking fun at you guys in particular, but I do find irony in the unwillingness to drop 100 bucks (this was my initial gut reaction quite honestly) for (what appears to be) a nicely crafted & designed aluminum tube. Yet we spend hundreds, even thousands on some paper. Of course, this is probably more aimed at designers, drafters, and architects, not your run of the mill poster collector or flipper (gotta watch those profit margins).
Why spend $100 when you can find something much cheaper that does the exact same thing? Who gives a flying drymount about what their damn poster tube looks like? Someone looking to make a fashion statement by carrying an inherently dorky thing around like a poster tube? Hahahaha.
Like I said, I think this was really more aimed at professionals, not primarily poster collectors, aesthetics and appearances are everything in certain professions (I've been in both Industrial Design and UX/UI professions). I was just looking at it from a materials & production standpoint rather than perceived value.

As far as hauling around prints at cons and shows, yeah definitely overkill. I'll stick to my cardboard 5''er.

My tube was forged in the fires of Mt. Doom by the high elves. It has the power to store prints inside itself flat.

Dark magic, man. Only me and the Dos Equis guy can wield it.

It is bigger on the inside than the outside.

So I watched Howl's this weekend and I noticed that when the portal lead to the flower field the dial was set to red.

So that's my theory about why the Howl's print is done in the color red. Of course the color choice could have been arbitrary, but maybe this makes up for the "sinister" look.
