Where did you get the Spiderman?

PS. Old timer poster friend emailed me that he thinks 80% of TDK teasers out there are fakes, so I was actually under perhaps.

PSS. Even if its double side, it could still be fake...

PMS. OGs at the length measure 40.1" on the nose. Anything shorter = boot.
Theater I worked at was supposed to toss them.

In other news, I'm still trying to decide if I like the Japanese ESB poster. It looks weird to me to have a 2, !, and 40 in the middle of the Japanese, but I know nothing about how the language works. Anyone care to explain why it's not all Japanese characters?
The 2 and ! seem fine here, assuming the 40 then is also okay...

Now you got me confused - what is the 2 actually for anyway? Star Wars 2?

Yep, shortly after shipping them out to several theaters, the studio recalled them for a few reasons (officially and unofficially). The recall made it instantly collectible of course, which made it the easy target for printers to scam from collectors.

The fakes are all higher contrast and have a rougher paper too.

Any chance of a Pollock Junta artist edition? If so, any chance that I'll actually score one in the lottery?

Yeah, I waited knowing that they have been having issues with bots.

I figured it couldn't have sold out that fast and crossed my fingers they would re-list the bot sales.

Email them. They may be able to help you out.

Happened to me during the Empire drop. Struck out on the variants but then saw folks say they actually went back in stock. I just closed my window when it told me it sold out in the cart.

For Empire, I think that was a Twitter-announced re-stock from all the cancelled bot orders. I don't know if they actually showed back up on the main page or if it was just a link they shared on Twitter.
