$275! Ouch. Not that it matters. I couldn't get squat even if I wanted to. Off to freaking Ebay I guess. One can only hope that the prices will drop after a couple weeks.

Picked up a couple other prints though while I was at the shop though. :)

the worst feeling ....when you have been trying to add it to your cart for 20 minutes ...and it suddenly says ADDED! ...just to say SOLD OUT 2 seconds later.

LOL!!! I haven't heard that expression in years -- cracked me up. The poster is a beauty, but the jump from $60 to $275 is nutz.

This was part 4 of disappointment yesterday after failing at masthay's and Justin's other work.
Did not realize buying these ae posters would be close to impossible due to atc (add to cart) bots that already have removed product availability before the web store page goes live. Previously hindrance to posters was income sufficient to afford merch stand price. Now it is affording many times retail and worst of all scalpers who make a living buying retail products at suggested retail by unfair (bot) means.

Wish the artists were charging the thousands of dollars these pieces are going to command on eBay.
And that it was possible to obtain without bots and a lot of luck. Hard to know this is what is needed to compete.
