Coming soon from POW.

I assume from the large number of tiles on this print, it won't be an embossed print like the recent Home Invader prints. Could be wrong though...

I really dig Invader's stuff (like one looks great) but I just can't justify paying the price it goes for. Anyone know what this will be going for...roughly?

You raise a good point about being "tricked" into it with MBW but Invader is in a whole different league. He's been doing his thing consistently for decades and is pretty much a legend when it comes to the world of street art. He's well respected and well backed by many of the "power players" in the street art world so while the prices are high, they are like that because his work deserves to be priced to market whereas MBW is just trying cash in for as much as he can.

As an Invader fan, I don't really care for this print all that much and will probably be passing on it. Good luck to those trying. :D

I love it ...and will hopefully buy one.

How can you not justify the price to yourself when you have no idea of the cost??!! :D :D

Had in the basket and passed. I'd just (try) to flip it anyway. Good luck all.

I was on the fence until I saw that it was an embossed design.

Saw the "Add to Basket", clicked it, went to "error". Now, it says "currently unavailable". I haven't bought from POW's site before, only the Banksy lottery. Does "unavailable" mean sold out?

If jojo bought, then I made a mistake by letting it go.
