  1. What is the point of being on Tyler’s mailing list??

  2. I don’t mean to be overly pedantic, but does “PST” mean I also have to adjust for daylights savings? Specifically, how should I interpret 8pm PST to Central time? Is that 10pm tonight or later? Maybe I should just take a few deep breaths and relax, but since I missed the drop this morning at Mondo I’d like to not miss this one too…

  3. I agree, whats the point of being in the mailing list anymore?

  4. It’s not a secret society. just me, 10pm central.

  5. I’m sure the server will crash and I won’t have a shot at either, but the importance of the red color scheme in everything Iron Man makes me like the regular version a lot more for once…

  6. Speaking of mailing lists, did Mondo’s have anything about today’s release?

  7. “Error: Your order from tstout can’t be shipped to United States. Please click the x remove next to those items to remove them from your cart, or change the country you want the items shipped to.”

  8. arrrrrrgh! it appears to be sold out.

  9. It’s telling me it won’t ship to Canada. Weak

  10. I grabbed copies this morning on Mondo, but for fun i hopped on Etsy and it seems like its holding together pretty well so far. Granted I havnt tried to check out with anything. Hope everyone out there grabbed one!

  11. Says there are 134 in stock but it can’t ship to the United States. Huh?

  12. sold out in segunds

  13. i dont understand it says it cant be shipped to the united states??!

  14. ya mine also said cant ship to united states

  15. Why can’t I ship to the US? Absolutely ridiculous.

  16. How the hell can I checkout? Obviously some people have figured it out.

  17. Thanks Mitch. And woohoo!

    @Stark

    I was torn between the regular and variant. Indeed, the red in the regular is so appropriate. However, I was kind of smitten with the idea of the “arc reactor” in his chest possibly being GID, so I caved…

  18. welp another fail for tstout sale wtf

  19. Haha good to be living in Canada!

  20. So were any americans here able to purchase one?

  21. Sorry
    Etsy just experienced a brief hiccup. Please go back and try again.

    For updates, please see http://fix.etsy.com.

    Thanks for your patience!

  22. soo it said unable to ships to the united states then the site crashed and it told me it was unavalible

  23. I purchased it and live in America

  24. sheeet.. had one in my cart seconds after going live.
    Commit to buy, and the whole thing crashed. Need to find something that can handle the traffic

  25. Well i tried to checkout once with a variant and it gave me the ” not enough quantity to checkout ” line, literally seconds after it went up. So then i tried for a regular and I got he Fing “cannot ship to hhe United States” thing too, WtF…

  26. this is ridiculous i added to my cart the second it went live and it said unable to ship to united states

  27. I live in the States and had no issues snagging one, but I just happened to snag one right after they appeared on Etsy. I did snag a variant though and it is sounding like only the regular edition had issues *shrug*

  28. I added it to my card when it said “150 available” and used paypal and had no trouble at all

  29. Mine was regular and not variant

  30. Successful order here in the USA. No shipping error messages. Paid through Paypal.

  31. Error: Your order from tstout can’t be shipped to United States. Please click the x remove next to those items to remove them from your cart, or change the country you want the items shipped to.

  32. Forget to mention, mine was also a regular.

  33. Well it sounds like some of you guys might have beaten me to it by a few minutes (I got on around 11:06 EST), but I thought I had one until that damn shipping error. If it had just crashed I wouldn’t have been surprised, but that was weird and frustrating.

  34. why couldnt he just do the email thing that he did with monster squad that was awesome

  35. I just went through and didnt get the shipping error, I bought one of each copy this morning so Im not going to buy another, but try again folks, I didnt get the shipping error, and got to the commit to buy page.

  36. What a huge bummer. I got on here to grab it and it was in my cart, errored when i clicked commit to buy then i tried to do it again and I get this shipping error. Looks like I’m stuck paying high premiums on ebay like the rest of them

  37. No, I got to that page too, hence why I thought I had nailed one. The shipping error comes after you hit “commit to buy” on that page, presumably before it sends you to paypal

  38. I live in AMERICA Let me buy one!

  39. dude, what is haaaaaappening!!!???

  40. so frustrating…

  41. All i get when clicking commit to buy is this message: Uh oh! A stitch has gone awry. Please try again later.

  42. screw this, cancel the sale and just go back to the mailing list like last time

  43. i added the variant, saw 18 left, by the time i committed to buy it was oos.
    red one comes up and site was on its rag. managed to review my order when noticed i got 5 in my cart. gave up at that point. pissed off to no ends

  44. I don’t understand how people are able to check out .. we are all doing the same thing here.

  45. FAIL. EPIC FAIL. I’ve loved Tyler’s artwork and unique style for a looooong time now, yet he should have known better in using Etsy. After learning that he was planning to sell his Iron Man 2 via Etsy, I thought WTF???? Etsy is fine for everyday, non-limited items, however using it for a *time-limited* sale is a RECIPE FOR DISASTER. And that’s exactly what happened.

    In my case, when the variant was added to the cart, there were 18 in stock. After I finished checkout (pre-Paypal), there were 0 – meaning no variant for Me, Myself and Moi. For some odd reason, Etsy makes you confirm the order, not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES. In that critical amount of time, I lost out on purchasing the variant.

    Etsy’s major flaw is that it doesn’t hold time-limited items in the shopping cart. That is, unless you were able to checkout in less than 1 minute, you most likely missed snagging the variant after it was posted for sale.

    TYLER: PLEASE DO NOT USE ETSY AGAIN.

  46. Why not just state what date the poster will go on sale then email the mailing list when it does (it’s not that hard). Tyler. . . your the man and all but I think you like crashing servers being as though you always give the exact times when your posters go on sale.

  47. I just saw that Etsy has been reporting server slowness starting this morning, especially for those on the east coast, maybe this is causing the problems.

  48. worst buying experience ever, internal server errors and missed it. sucks

  49. I just watched the in stock quantity gradually drop from 48 to 9 over several refreshes, so a lot of people are successfully checking out this late in the game. Now down to 7–keep trying!

  50. This is unreal. ive tried and tried and nothing will go through. I have successfully gotten every error but not a single poster. with 7 left looks like im screwed because i did exactly what i was supposed to do. wow

  51. Even with my experience trying for Shep Fairey and Banksy prints, I must agree with lee. The crash was to be expected, and I’ve seen much worse, but thinking I was so close only to be denied for something like a shipping error, when the item description itself says shipping tot he US is $8, was rather cruel.

  52. mitch, when you sell some here take this list / thread into consideration mate… we deserve to be first in line… c’mon… posting here at the same time that we are trying to purchase on etsy… (that’s probably why I didn’t get any).

  53. wlep that was a huge waste of time

  54. Guess that is part of the thrill of the hunt. Grats to those that succeeded.

  55. Ripped my heart out I tell ya.

  56. if anyone has a regular on ebay, let me know, atleast that site will work.

  57. an hour well wasted…
    or the my eyes kept blinking in desbelief…
    or, when shoppers collide…

    or something like that happened tonight…
    dang!
    congrats to the ones who didn’t live in the US… or something like that… :)

  58. now a smoke…

  59. what the hell, hate to pay 4x on ebay but went ahead and grabbed it. id rather tyler make the cash

  60. I can’t believe it. Got one of the normal posters in my cart when there were over a hundred left and had a combination of all the errors above. First the server crashed, then it wouldn’t let me ship to the states then it said they were all gone. So gutted – I don’t know what else I could have done to get one.

    Tyler, do the right thing and do a re issue, please. I don’t care if its labeled a second pressing, I just love your art man.

  61. I like how I’m on his mailing list and I didn’t receive the f-ing email they were going on sale yesterday. Thanks a bunch! I hope all the marvel fanboys didn’t leave a single print for the real collectors *sarcasm*

  62. worst experiance! worse than obey pattern releases!

  63. I was up at 4am, live in the UK and had the exact same problems as all of you. Straight in as soon as it was listed, commit to buy, a stitch has gone awry. From the 20 or so times I went through checkout in that hour, I got can’t ship to UK, looks like it’s sold out with 148 left and gateway error.

    I think I would of preferred it to have just sold out quickly than what happened. Just made it more infuriating when you realise the website has messed up somewhere and is stopping you complete your transaction.

    Maybe eBay should be the place for artists to sell their work, would that server work better maybe?

  64. lol ebay..imagine that? a seller puts up 50 posters at once and everyone just has to goto buy it now quickly

  65. Wow, you people are fucking exhausting sometimes. Do you realize how many people are trying to buy his posters? He’s experimenting to find a way that will work, I’m sure he’ll find one eventually. Trust me, as someone that has dealt with the same thing, it is almost impossible to find a reasonably priced way to sell something to 1000+ people at once. He’ll figure it out, give him a break. Jeez.

  66. well said mitch… give tyler a break.. He hates this as much as anyone. Unfortunately with his huge following there is no great way to do it. Folks will complain no matter how he does it..

  67. wow. if you thought that this was going to be an easy sale you were kidding yourself. that image has been all over the nerd blogs all week, poster nerds wanted it, comic nerds wanted it, movie nerds wanted it. hell, it was even up on aint it cool, and if i remember last time aicn posted a mondo poster, the wolfman ones, that sale was also a cluster fuck.
    tyler’s work just gets more popular with every release, if he did a reprint of this the same people asking for it would be the same people bitching that he is reprinting a poster just to make money, you do it to tim doyle everytime he reprints something.
    just wait a bit, the ebay prices will go down, for all his recent releases they seem to.

  68. So I guess there’s no true point in being on neither Tylers’ nor Mondos mailing list. Mondo doesn’t send an email when their stuff is released and neither does Tyler, AWESOME!. . . I love my life.

  69. It’s not Tyler’s fault. I was mainly criticising the etsy site tbh. It just baffled me with all the errors it gave out which weren’t true. Fair play to tyler for trying a way to make it fair for everyone to have a shot.

    It was just etsy.

  70. Wow you kids are such bitches sometimes.

    Let’s do a little math;
    Mr. Stout wants to sell his posters.
    He only has about 500 available.
    Several thousand babies would each like one.
    How many posters does each baby get?

    Yeah yeah I know, Etsy betrayed you somehow. Here’s an idea. Email Etsy support and explain your experience in a calm and rational way and wait for a response. While you’re waiting for said response brew yourself a nice cup of chai, sit someplace comfy, wipe the tears from your eyes and GET. FUCKING. OVER IT.

    Tyler: amazing print (as usual), shame the movie kinda sucks. Now for christ’s sake please get back in your Delorean and make a proper 24×36 Last Starfighter poster. Don’t matter if anyone’s screening the movie this year just do it for fun dude! Those Grig prints are such a tease! ;)

    Mitch: you got nice eyes

  71. Ganbatte, Mitch!

    So, what is the story with reliable, high-traffic-capable, carting systems? Lots of pricey options? Few pricey options? I can’t imagine it’s no options…

  72. There are options, but it’s more about actually finding them. From what I can tell, getting a custom-built shopping cart site with cloud-based hosting is probably the way to go. Not cheap or easy though.

  73. 1000 people, that’s it?

  74. 1000 people trying to buy 200 posters means 4/5 of them are going to bitch.

  75. Honestly I don’t see why Tyler would want to go through the effort (financially and administratively) to create a fool proof reliable commerce capable website for the handful of high profile drops a year he has to deal with.
    Dude’s an artist, not an “e-businessman”.
    You dorks are gonna bitch no matter what the guy does because you somehow think you “deserve” a copy of any limited edition print you F5 for all day.

    I love you fools but honestly Tyler ain’t havin problems selling out of his work and 500+ people have Iron Man 2 prints in the mail. I don’t see the issue and as nice a dude as Tyler is I’d be surprised if he does either :)

  76. Look at all the fucking assholes already selling prints on ebay

    http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313&_nkw=tyler+stout+iron+man&_sacat=See-All-Categories

    they haven’t even shipped, they’re basically selling overpriced promises

  77. he showed me the copy he had of the iron man poster and it is so AWESOME up close..oh and if u guys havent figured it out yet, tyler “hides” images in his posters. for example: he has a daughter named clover(my cousin) so he hides a clover somewhere in almost all his posters. pretty kool huh?:)
