If I didn't like the Green version so much better, I'd be all over this, but dang that orange just doesn't look right to me.

I'm sure it will be great in hand. Look how many people didn't like the Conchords purple and then people were blown away when it arrived.

Fair enough, but in the JPG (which may not be accurate), the orange seems to take away from some of the detail. I notice the colour more than I notice the actual artwork.
Then again, I don't mind purple.

I don't have the purple FOTC because of that purple.. some color combos just ruin it for me, and that purple and this orange are good examples.

OMG stated that the print is more subdued than the JPG. I'm sure it will look amazing in person.

OMG is Mitch. He usually is right on about the look of a poster. He has come across a few in the last couple of years.

It was very interesting watching how quickly they were being sold. For a release that was not widely discussed, the posters moved pretty quick.
T.K.C.
