There have been times I got my poster before I got any notification. Hasn't it only been a week since the release? If you bought it, it will come. :)

Unless of course I wait outside your house and steal your tube. :wink: :P

Got my set today; they look incredible in person! Olly really outdid himself this time. Framing priority #1 for sure.

Is this the most insane demand for and inflated pricing for a Mondo print release ever? Is the silly season a factor? This wasn't even predicted to be so crazy either... Was there ever a Stout in such demand so quickly?

I just wonder will there be another print and artist combo that causes such a stir. Many will say the final SW will be the same if done by Stout, I don't know...

The demand and actual prices being paid for these was really unexpected i think...

(Meanwhile, I'm waiting on my prints to arrive undamaged and just glad tomorrows drop is not as anticipated by many...)

I expected the demand and prices as soon as I saw the jpgs of the posters. I think many others did as well. We'll see how the purported Stout's stack up, resale-wise. I think it may be similar, but I haven't seen it/them yet.

I don't think anyone expected the prices these are going for right now.

Mine arrived today undamaged. Flattening now, but I'll take some pics later if nobody else has yet.

Yeah, maybe it's all hindsight, but these have a lot in common with "Locke's Secret" (from a reselling perspective) and that's still going for ~$500. Multiply that by 3 prints and you get the ~$1500 sale prices for the Star Wars set.

Got my notification tonight! BIG relief. My set might not get here until next week because of the New Year's Holiday, but at least I know it's finally coming.

I just got my shipping notification yesterday myself -- what a relief, I kept half-expecting a late refund notice. Did the people who've received theirs order from Olly's sale, or has Mondo been sending them out in batches? (I live in Texas, so I often have my Mondo prints within a week or so of ordering them -- but this is holiday-time too...)
