Scored both. Only got the reg initially but the art print version came in stock. Will decide which one to keep later and hopefully trade the other one for something else Disney cool

I'm not sure what Cyclops was thinking for this one. $200 for a print that has nothing to do with the movie at all? and a 200 print run to boot. Unless I'm missing something this is going to be on their website for a long time.

I think the higher price is because of the number of screens and that the artist is also the film's director.

It looks really good in person. The printer did a pretty remarkable job.
So it goes...

I understand the reason it costs more. I'm just saying that it seems like the demand for this print will far far lower than the cost and total print run. I'm questioning the decision to produce it in the first place. I'll eat crow if I'm wrong but from where I'm sitting it looks like a complete dud.

I think you have a very narrow scope of thought when it comes to who buys Disney art. Talk to me after you have seen some of the pieces at the Art of Disney store.

Disney people will buy anything at any price basically.

Go look up Shag pieces and prices.

If I was a betting man I would say this will not insta sell out.

I know I don't have the broadest view of the art community. I'm just speaking from what I've seen on cyclops specifically. I've seen some really good stuff on their site that just never seemed to sell out especially when priced over $60

I'd only agree that it's not an insta-sellout because a run of 200 at $200 is steep, and it's paired with whatever dent the Disney show last weekend caused (major factor - plenty of folks probably saving their budgets for the Mondo drops). But Erin's absolutely right in that it's def not just for the poster nerd niche - as a piece of art from Howard himself that you're not exactly gonna find everywhere else for a very popular Disney film, that thing's a pretty big deal and will probably not be sitting forever.

Agreed. Just picked it up.
Nothing better than letter press & deckled edge.
Hope to see more of the old Disney classics done this way.

Picked up the letterpress for a gift for my sister in law, her favorite disney movie is the Jungle Book. I showed her a couple other prints, but couldn't see hanging a 24x36 print. This size should work. Also used the code for the free handbill.
