New Alamo Drafthouse Posters Going Up Today

Here is your official heads up about some new Alamo Drafthouse posters going up today.  First off, they will be selling the show edition of Aaron Horkey’s Dead Man print.  Besides not having a gocco print on the back, and being numbered differently, it’s the same as the artist edition.  Secondly, they will be posting two amazing new posters by Jay Ryan for Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club.  Everything is limited, signed, numbered, etc.  These will go up sometime today at a random time (hint:  around lunch time in Texas).  Visit Mondotees.com.

EDIT:  Everything appears to be running smoothly now.  The Horkey print is sold out, but the other two are still available.

  1. May have to be making a few purchases via iphone today. I’m wondering whether the site will crash from the horkey traffic preventing people from buying just the jay ryan posters.

  2. I’m not buying, but I hope their store can take the rush … Horkey + Ryan in the mid-afternoon might equal some crazy traffic … buena suerte to the fine folks at mondo!

  3. this is a bust….moving SO SLOW!!!

  4. Keep refreshing the page. The site has slowed down a bit because of the massive wave of people hitting it, but it’s still loading for me!

    Thanks everyone!

  5. im giving up….screw it! spent over an hour of my life now for NOTHING….what a joke!

  6. Sad thing is I really wanted the poster….FOR MYSELF! Im sure the majority made it to the hands of ‘flippers’ so Ill just see where the market value settles. SUCKS!

  7. Sorry Patrick. It’s obviously a good deal where we’re getting so much traffic, but bad because we’re not able to get to everyone as quickly as we want.

  8. RE: The Dead Man print … what does “not having a gocco print on the back …” mean?

  9. Mondotees is the new Obey Giant.

  10. i got as far as being able to click on the print (while seemingly still in stock) and tried to add it to my cart…site kicked me off before i got to the cart/payment screen. that was nearly an hour ago. i want this piece so bad, but is collecting art really worth all of this trouble. Sad fact is that most of these will end up for sale on ebay. i practice a strict no ebay flipper policy; never buying prints off of ebay (unless for less than original issue price). So it looks like i’ll be going without…unless some miracle happens…like eveyone else has also been shut out and they’re all still available. I just hope that at the very least, there will be a jay ryan print left for me to grab.

  11. No worries Justin….thats how it goes sometimes….Im just bummed cause this was the ‘last chance’ to get this poster through public on-sale so now I have to deal with the ‘flippers’ if I want it. In this case, Im going to pass which sucks cause I really wanted this print. oh well, Obviously the high traffic means good things for you….take care!

  12. Maybe if the resellers (Mondo, OMG, etc.) appealed to these artists to do larger runs (like other popular mainstream artists have done) in order to satisfy the fan demand, the flipper factor (and website crashes) would go away. Just a thought.

  13. I can get through, but they want $15 to ship a poster? What’s the cheapest?

  14. DEAD MAN posters are all sold out. Sorry for the site getting weird and thanks for everyone’s patience.

  15. Error while processing your order through PayPal: com.paypal.sdk.exceptions.FatalException: Unable to complete HTTPS transaction :o(

  16. Damn.. I had it in my cart but when I went to login I lost it. Bummer.

  17. Hooray! finally got the jay ryans!

    If this was the worst you’ve encountered in poster collecting then consider yourself blessed. Mondo does a lot of work doing something that nobody else does and they do it really well, thank you!

  18. for the second time i wasnt able to catch one of thos amazing horkey prints… was a minute to late on the 175 stout sale, today ive got the same “site isnt loading” problem and then had to close my store..too late again..

    out of curiosity i checked ebay a minute ago and here it is:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Aaron-Horkey-Dead-Man-Alamo-Drafthouse-Poster-175-stout_W0QQitemZ320419466385QQcmdZViewItemQQptZArt_Posters?hash=item4a9a7d0c91&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14#ht_2709wt_1167

    for the proud price of 399,95 $ (from the 175 edition)… the print isnt even shipped yet, is it?? damn flippers, here are actually people who wanted to buy for their own collections not money making… a bit sad i am..

  19. Well, I for one wanted to buy one and flip it, yet I was unable to access the page. People don’t think of the common flipper anymore.







    – Just kidding.

  20. Site is doing much better now. Sorry again for all of the craziness. Jay Ryan’s posters are going fast, so if you want one you should do it soon!

  21. justin, how come you guys priced the horkey poster at $110 when they were retailed at $145 from the other site? just what’s the $35 price difference.

  22. Show edition was less expensive, which is quite common.

  23. Got the Jay Ryan Sixteen Candles. Would have gotten the other one, but the shipping was $14.99. Justin, care to clarify why it is so expensive this time for the shipping, even regular ground?

  24. Justin (or anyone)

    Can you explain the differences between the show edition and the version that went on sale a few days ago? whats this gocco print on the back all about? never heard of such a thing..

  25. I dont know why all the complaining about $15 shipping. I send prints all the time and it always cost me $12.00 after delivery confirmation and insurance. Add a $3.00 tube to that and your at $15.00. Seems reasonable to me. Emek charges $20 to ship his prints. Im guessing the horkey is going to be sent flat, so that might add to the cost as well. I know there was some talk about “premium packaging” on the first release, dont know if that applies to this show edition as well.

  26. Aaron will be doing larger, more deluxe numbering on the artist edition (like you see on some of his variants), and a gocco print is a small screenprint, kind of, if you google it, you’ll see. Little Japanese print machine. Aaron will be applying those by hand on the artist copies. Other than that, they are the same.

  27. both prints suck

  28. ^^^ they’re not even prints. they posters mang
