  1. My point wasn’t about the server getting slower once the massive wave of traffic hits. The massive wave ITSELF is the problem, regardless of how the server handles it. The more dedicated people are the ones refreshing all day and not waiting for the Twitter announcement – they will invariably be there first. If you do that, you are competing with just that (relatively) smaller amount of dedicated people. If you wait for the tweet, you are now not just competing with those dedicated people (and starting off behind them), but you are ALSO competing with the much larger number of people who aren’t as dedicated and are clicking the Twitter link at the exact same time as you. The server’s performance has nothing to do with this simple fact.

    Regardless of how fast the server is, you are still ultimately competing with everyone else going for the posters. If the site truly just crapped the bed and died, NO ONE would get through. Everyone keeps complaining that the server is what prevented them from getting a poster, but realize that everyone else is in the exact same position. If it was a breeze to get through, then it would be a breeze for everyone, and the posters would sell out that much quicker.

  2. Honestly, the secondary market for the past couple posters is pretty damn reasonable. It’s been worth it to me for others to waste their day while I go about mine.

    This poster didn’t drop til 1:30pm. I’m glad I wasn’t trapped staring at the screen all day.

  3. I suspect this will be a pricy one in 6-10 months time. There are a LOT of Nautilus and Leagues collectors out there, so once the initial flood is gone, this print is gonna be scarce. If you want to buy from a flipper, even though it sucks, do it now.

  4. Poster is going 3x the price already on ebay. Buy it now for 300 – 400.

    Poster is amazing but the likelihood of me being able to afford it now is basically none.

    Sigh, thing looks damn amazing.

  5. Tip: Use Firefox, add the Reloadevery add on, which reloads your browser window every 5 seconds automatically. If you work at a computer during the day, having a window open on the side that is automatically refreshing, helps. I, on the other hand, did this, and a jehovah’s witness came to the door at exactly the moment of the drop. MY conspiracy theory on this one, is that flippers have employed the jehovah’s witness’ as detractors.

  6. everyone that buys from mondo’s website goes through the same process. we all have to add the poster in the cart, confirm the address, and then pay for it….then wait like everyone else.

    people that keeps whining simply don’t want to accept reality. instead they rather voice their opinion without properly analyzing the situation, and then injecting their own business model to mondo like they need to hear it. WHEN YOU RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN RULES! GTFO or stay with the program.

    if people really want to bitch at someone, bitch at the server for timing out your connection. send it a hate mail if you need to but don’t bitch at mondo for selling/producing great artwork for the public. this hate is a vicious cycle that happens with every drop and it sucks because mondo will never hear the end of it.

  7. As I have stated before, Mondo could of easily sold 1000 of this prints. But, they choose not to. There has to be a reason. They control the secondary market for a reason.

  8. As stated before, Shawn, you don’t have the first clue what you’re talking about.

  9. @shawn – it’s called running your OWN business and implementing your own set of rules. you don’t need the next man telling you how to do your job so stfu already. go buy a Buger King if you want to “Have it your way”.

    also mondo doesn’t control of the secondary market. mondo controls production and distribution but it’s the customers that controls the demand and secondary prices. i’m sure mondo crew has done enough research to plan out what works best within their industry.

    admin, please forward this guy’s email/ip to mondo so they can ban him from ever purchasing another poster. this guy is not only bad for business but he’s throwing allegations of fraud and manipulation without valid proof to back up his claims. shawn isn’t a fan; he’s just another victim of hype.

  10. Stunning is the right word, congrats mate on a fantastic piece. Used to love and be scared of this film at the same time when I little.

  11. Jeez, Shawn is going to publish the “Protocols of the Elders of Mondo” soon.

  12. Shawn is the poster community’s very own Glenn Beck, erratic public weeping and all.


  13. Want some cheese with that whine? I hate Glen Beck! Is the sky falling Shawn? I need to know to keep on going. Do tell. Lol!!

  14. I love how upset people get when they can’t get their prints and come up with conspiracy theories. There are more than 390 people in the world that try and collect posters from Mondo. Deal with it.
