So I bought Celebration as well and got this for free in my shipment. Is that normal or not. This guy is making me laugh b/c of his total lack of information. It's just a poster, not a print. Does MBW do this often? Not trying to pimp this dudes stuff, just was flabbergasted by the sum he put up there for a poster.
Thanks for clearing this up EB'ers

Well at least he does say that it is a Poster in his listing. Mr. Brainwash pretty much always includes 1 or 2 free posters/lithos with each limited edition signed and numbered print that is shipped out. And yes, the price he is asking is crazy for the Poster. Hope that helps.

Its a litho, and MBW sends them with most, if not all, of his prints.

The ebay auction is that guys thing, he gets a litho and just says look at pictures for exact thing you are buying. Shady practices, but he does it with all of them

There's another one at a much more reasonable price...at least compared to the ebay auction mentioned above. I think this looks like something that should be sold for $7.95 at Wal*Mart next to a Justin Bieber poster...but that's just me.

That is cause they are just like the posters you could buy at walmart, nothing special. It's mainly a ploy by shady Ebay members to trick uniformed buyers. Why so much attention on his free posters in the Celebration thread anyway?

Sorry, it was my first MBW and was wondering if this was normal.

It's trickery I tell you.

Best line from The Break Up (Vince Vaughn)...

There's a real big gap between getting your ass kicked and having a dancing, singing sprite fool you with trickery and then strike your throat before you even know you're in a fight.

I can't wait to see my print. It should be here next week.
Very excited to have this one!
Seriously, I've been talkin' bout a MBW Madge print since 2009.

His date is the 30th. He lives about 2 hours away in DC, so it will be a quick turnover!

Got the same message today as well - unfortunately, now I have to wait for it to make it back to LA.
