    I think you are greatly overestimating their profits on these, or at least the 50% of profit they will report. Business is business.

    I can't believe it was only $500. - I figured it would be $750. - $800.!
    The best of the bunch in my opinion and the only one I could conceivably see normal people framing and hanging in their house.

    Normal is a relative term around here.

    Had it in the cart. 
    Tried to hit payment and said not available at 1:01pm. Guess the bots were on it.

    I watched the inventory drop from 29 to 0 over about a minute and a half.
    It would've been an easy score if you were on it, no offense.
    I don't have a bot, or $500 for this print, but I would've had time to PB at least 2 if not 3.
    2 minutes is an eternity in the world of limited edition prints.

    It's stuff like this sale that just makes me sad. You can say "Ames isn't PJ" but I mean it's 50% the brother of one of the band members. This is just such a shameless money grab, it's disgusting. $500 for reprinting something you created years ago?

    Why not print more of them at a lower price point and make money by volume? It's like they're enabling the flippers.
    Enabling flippers is one of the necessary parts of keeping the demand and value for all merch as high as possible.  It's absolutely an intentional part of the goal here.

    The price to buy the complete XXL set from Ames was $4200 plus shipping.  The 10 prints that have been individually sold so far add up to $3200.  Do you think Seattle and Kong will be $500 each?  Or something else?  Or will their individual prices add up to more than $4200?

    I'm kinda glad I was 2 min late to try and buy it. I shouldn't spend $500 on a small plot of wallpaper, but i've wanted Hawaii since '98. This was faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar cheaper than the OG will ever be. I was considering buying it and hanging onto it until it approached the original's value to see if anyone would be up for a trade.

    Assuming it increases in value faster than the OG, otherwise they will never be equal worth.

    Just wanted to add that the Twilight Singers are the greatest band of the 21st Century.  It’s not even close

    Just think: You could have purchased the OG poster there for like $14.

  • The original poster is still under $1,000 though isn't it? I'm not sure where you are seeing them being so much more expensive.

    I still cant picture myself doing anything with these.  I never keep posters rolled and that’s what would happen.  If you have the wall space for it then it’s pretty cool.  They’re too nice to go in my garage.   They’d end up trade bait i guess
