Title: October 2020
Post by: Neo on October 03, 2020, 02:16:43 PM
Howdy folks.  Not much posting or purchasing from me lately.  Really like the Japanese B1's and other stuff in the September thread.  I was a little surprised that the September thread only had one page and no one started October yet.  2020 is an interesting year.

I'm pretty stoked to acquire these Japanese B5's.  Not quite as rewarding as finding the larger formats, but some are fairly scarce, a small fraction of the price, easier to store, etc.  They're fun.

2020 definitely is an interesting year. 

I don't think people are buying much because there isn't much to buy.  I haven't bought anything interesting or worth sharing in months. 

A lot of my Ebay trusted sellers have disappeared, probably because they find it difficult to ship stuff in a timely manner.  I bought posters from France that took 4 months to come to me.  Still waiting on a bunch of stuff from the UK and Italy.  I personally don't care, things get to me when they get to me, but I know a lot of buyers have been complaining, so sellers close shop, because really it's not worth the headache. 

Congrats on the B5s.  Are these the double sided little pamphlets?  I have a stack of a few thousands of them that I have accumulated over the years.  I should look into it one of these days.

Same here T, I haven't bought anything in weeks because there is nothing to buy these days, it's been dry as hell since the beginning of summer.  At this point it looks like I'll have to wait for Bruce's big Halloween sale and HA Signature auction in November for any new movie poster purchase.

Yeah, I usually don't check those sales until a couple days prior, so I hope there will be some good stuff there and not too much linenbacked shit.

Agreed.

The same with items from the US.  Even with a bloody great big headline saying, Yunno, Covid might delay stuff, people whine.

Personally, I am fine with x months of delivery.  It's all in the process and so, in the fullness of time it will get to me.  Feel sorry for the sellers who have to put up with the whiners who think the world's situation affects everything Except the shipping.  FFS x 2.

This year is definitely one for the ages.  If this joint were still the all politics forum, the server probably would have self-destructed.  faint2.gif

The delayed shipping dealio has not affected the few purchases I've made, I've heard plenty of horror stories though.  The only foreign country I've bought from lately is Japan.  FedEx international priority has amazed me each time.  About $30 and it arrives in 24 hours.  Truly exceptional.

The B5's are either fold-outs or double sided, and it's cool to see the shots from the films and the Japanese kanji text.  There are apps that can translate the text, although not the best translations.

Yep thank ebay.  Total lack of seller empathy.  Buyer makes a claim because a package is late?  Too bad.  Covid delays clearly indicated when you ship?  Too bad.  Package is delayed but tracking clearly shows movement towards final destination?   Too bad.  I lost 300 bucks because my package was 14 hours (no shit) "late."   I only ship to north America now.  Ebay has to be one of the worst seller platforms around.  Complete inability to adapt to these evolving times.

I've never posted any of my acquisitions before but I thought this poster and the circumstances around it were worth sharing.

A few months ago, my girlfriend, who has little interest in posters but is nice enough to occasionally enquire about my collecting habit, asked what my most sought after poster was. I told her, top of the list, has to be the Japanese poster for David Cronenberg's Spider, but that it's a pretty hard one to find. Fast forward to the other day, my birthday, and my girlfriend hands me a tube. Well, you can guess what was inside it. She spent quite some time fruitlessly tracking down the poster (welcome to my world...) before asking her Japanese co-worker if he could help. He found one on a Japanese auction site and then kept checking with her if she was sure she wanted to buy a used poster for her boyfriend, thinking it was a weird thing to do. Luckily for me, she reassured him. The seller wouldn't ship outside of Japan so the co-worker had to get it shipped to his sister in Japan who sent it to the UK, where I am based. Anyway, I give the preamble because I can't quite believe the trouble she took to indulge me. She even felt bad that she'd been able to find it where I had failed!

And here is the poster. It's B1 size and rolled. I sent some pics to a super helpful APF member (he knows who he is -- thanks again) to get their view on whether it's the real deal or a repro, and he seemed pretty sure it's genuine. It measures up correctly. And frankly, even if it turns out to be a fake, I don't really care because a) it's a great image and, more importantly, b) as the old saying goes, it's the thought that counts.

THAT IS A NICE GIRLFRIEND!!!  MARRY HER!!!!!

My wife did the same thing years ago.  Then my girlfriend, she tracked down a Ferris Bueller intl. (the one w the Ferrari), gave it to me for Christmas, but I wasn't collecting much at the time and I inadvertently trashed it when I picked up boxes and wrapping paper.  She swore to not ever buy me another poster again and she has stuck to her word :)

Great poster, btw.  That's one I've always wanted but never managed to put my hands on.

Cracking story.  And not a little hilarious.

Did she have any problem with the packing?  Or was she fortunate enough to be buying it from someone who knew the ropes?

I didn't think to ask her about the packing/unpacking. I assume the sister in Japan just stuck a new shipping label on the outside of the tube when she got it for its onward journey to the UK. There didn't seem to be the careful wrapping, tissue paper, bubble wrap, or what have you that you would get from anyone who knew what they were doing / had ever received a damaged poster before and vowed, not on my watch. Miraculously, it arrived unscathed. I don't even want to picture the scene if, after going to all that trouble, it had arrived damaged.

As I mentioned before, it's been a real slow couple of months when it comes to collecting movie posters.  There's just nothing out there these days.  In any case, I recently picked up a lovely stone litho for an obscure 1934 Edgar Wallace adaptation called Mystery Liner (now I'm going to track down that movie as I like to watch every movie that I collect paper on).

Unfortunately, I'm unable to post a photo of said poster; for some reason when I click on the "Attachments and other options" link, I'm only given the following options: "Notify me of replies", "Don't use smileys" and "Return to this topic".  Maybe there is something I'm not doing right here.  Anyone knows what could be the issue?

Hi Antoine1973,

Iíve had to temporarily turn off the attachment functionality because our disc allowance is full - Iím discussing with T, Holiday and Jason about increasing this, but for now, if you email me the image, Iíll add it to your post using my hosting.

Still with u on this...  havenít bought anything worth showing since mid-summer.  The market is dry dry dry.  Iím not really sure why.  Collectors are obviously wealthier than most (just look at the 100s of dollars HA gets on items worth $20) and still out there ready to buy.  The demand is there, not the products.  People are holding off.  Not quite sure why.

Thanks Tobin (and again thanks for posting my pic!). 

I'm always interested in watching a movie based on the work of the extremely prolific Edgar Wallace, who died suddenly from undiagnosed diabetes during the initial drafting of "King Kong" (1933), which came out the year before "Mystery Liner" was released.  In addition to creating Kong, he wrote 18 stage plays, 957 short stories, and over 170 novels, 12 in 1929 alone. More than 160 films have been made of his work, a good chunk of them in Germany in the 1960s, a subgroup of crime stories which came to be collectively known as Krimis (Germany's answer to the Italian Giallo).

That's it, I knew there was a reason my poster buying days have totally dried up of late, I think you've hit the nail on the head, lets all blame T laugh1 only kidding T ;)

No seriously, I agree with all of you saying how quiet things have been in the world of poster collecting this year, I think it's all down to the fact that the world truly has gone mad this year with Covid 19 and all the problems it's caused around it, and if anything it looks like these next couple of months are going to be an even bigger test certainly in the UK and across Europe with lockdowns happening again all over the place.

I think it's just made a lot of poster seller's shut up shop for a while because of concerns sending stuff out, plus! I think many collector's are worried about spending to much cash in these current troubling times.

Whatever the reasons 2020 has certainly been a strange old crappy year for many there's no doubt about that. :(

T

I still think the slow down kicked in when Covid 19 really took off earlier in the year when there were lockdowns all over the world it seemed to put a lot of seller's off of shipping stuff out and things have just never really got going ever since, I guess it's because of the stop, start nature of all these lockdowns in different countries, I'm in the UK and they are starting to go loopy over here again so much so that I think many people are finally getting fed up with it all and have had enough of it all now.

Personally I've still been keeping an eye on the poster market but simply have found it real hard to find anything of interest of late and the sort of posters I want are starting to get truly expensive nowadays so are becoming out of reach for me anyway.

And you saying "the money is there" T, I get the feeling the way 2020 has gone for a lot of people many poster collector's are probably thinking a little harder before every purchase, I certainly am in these current crazy times.

I don't know, man.  Like I said earlier, you look at the stuff HA is selling every week (easy to find cheap stuff), the crazy prices achieved, and you realize people are still spending a lot of dough.  Collectors have a lot of discretionary money to begin with (they wouldn't be collectors otherwise, spending money on frivolous stuff).  I think the money is there but the goods are not.  I could be wrong.

No, in all honesty T your probably right mate, and you make some good points, I personally tend to stick with a few of my regular and trusted contacts so I'm probably not the best person to comment on the overall poster market, I rarely take much notice of the auction sites myself, so the chances are your thoughts on the subject are probably more likely to be correct that mine 8)

Hey! T,

I'll hold my hands up and admit those prices don't mean a great deal to me mate as they are not in a poster market I buy from, but, if you say none of those posters on the list are worth the asking price then I believe you, with your large poster collection and the fact you own them all you certainly have a much better idea than me about them, so I'll take your word for it notworthy.gif

Like I said, I may be wrong, and if you ask my wife, I am wrong ALL THE TIME!  So there.  This being said, I can only tell you that I bought all these posters (and multiple times) for a fraction of what they sell for on auction sites.  Which leads me to think that a lot of people either do not care to look around or have too much money to spend.

As I said T those posters you listed are not ones I really know about myself, I'm guessing from the titles they are all US posters? if so I can tell you that I don't have any US posters in my collection, it's of course not that I don't like them or anything like that, far from it, I just don't know enough about them that's why I honestly would not know a good price from a bad one other than just going with my own gut-feeling or purely from looking around online (or even asking on these very forums).

Only posters I have are a few UK Quads, a couple of UK One Sheets, 1 German poster & 1 Japan poster the rest of my collection and the main part of my collection is made up of Thai posters which is by far the posters I'm most interested in and even Thai posters I'm still learning about all the time in regard to how much some are truly worth and who to trust when buying them etc.

I'd be first to hold my hands up and admit in the short time I've been collecting posters (5 years or so approx.) I've certainly overspent on a few posters, but, also feel I've picked up a few for a good price, there's also posters I bought when I first started collecting that in all honesty I would not buy today usually because of condition and things like that, nowadays some of these ones bought I would probably pass on.

Oh yeah, I always forget that you are into Thai posters.  I was really after acquiring Back to the Future, Poltergeist, Gremlins and The Goonies (4 hard to find Spielberg titles) and ended up buying a dozen more while searching them.  Now that I have them, I don't search Thai posters anymore, but I should, they're great.

You should show us more of your collection.  I'm sure it's impressive.

Pretty sure all my "current" collection is already on the forums T, I still have a pretty small collection overall, that's probably because I usually prefer to try and buy one or two more expensive posters rather than ten cheaper ones, what I mean by that of course is that the ones I'm usually interested in tend to be the more expensive ones so it means my collection has grown very slowly as I simply can't afford to buy the posters I really want all that often if they do appear on the market.

Having said all that I'm always keeping an eye out and you can be sure anything I pick up I will gladly share on here.

As for your Thai collection T, you said to me once before that you don't feel you have enough of them to consider them a "collection" but, you may remember I said to you that you have some of the best and rarest Thai posters already, believe me when I tell you that I have a few contacts that have amazing Thai collections (in the hundreds) with many genuine rarities but they still don't have some of the ones you have, so even if you consider your Thai collection small you still have some of the best, for example Thai posters you own like Back To The Future, Deep Red, The Goonies, Gremlins, Jaws 2 & Temple of Doom etc. you just don't come across these posters at all nowadays, every one of them a fantastic poster to own T notworthy.gif

Gremlins and Temple of Doom are ones I especially like thumbsup.gif

Hahaha very nice of you to say, even if it's a lie.  There might be a few harder to find pieces, but 40-50 posters does not make a collection imo.  When I get to 100, we'll talk ;)  That's my threshold for calling a few pieces of anything a collection.

I don't remember what you posted.  I know I had a couple people looking for a Friday the 13th poster that you posted (I think) right before the pandemic hit, and then they all went silent.  Like I said before, it's been really dry on the poster front.  So I started collection first edition books.  It's something to do.

I think I have a similar number of Thai posters to you T, so maybe I'll have to stop calling my selection a "collection" until I get to 100 or more ;)

Yes, that's correct T, I did add a Thai Friday The 13th poster to my collection in recent times, I remember very well you saying you'd like to get hold of one and was going to "put your people on it" etc.

It's a great! Thai poster for sure, from what I know it's "supposedly" another tough one to find and one of the main reasons for this is some collector's say a lot of them did not survive as this particular Thai poster is on very thin (cheap) paper, whether that's true or not your have to make up your own mind, I know a few collector's that have it so they are still out there, it's just a matter of finding one.

If your interested in a little tip, I can tell you from my experience the Thai posters for FRIDAY THE 13th Parts 2, 3 & 4 are all even more scarce than the Thai poster for the first film, Part 2 & 4 are really nice looking posters as well with some truly cool! 8) looking artwork especially if your a fan of the films.

Well, it's all personal of course.  I'm sure some people think 5 posters is a collection and I can't remember what you have but I'm sure it's great.  I didn't mean to sound blasť.  I don't consider mine a collection yet probably because it is small compared to some other collections I have.  I need to work at it, but it's not easy when no one is selling.

That's cool! T, I knew what you was getting at when you said you don't consider your Thai posters a collection just yet, and I can understand why you'd say that with the much larger number of posters you have from other countries etc. thumbsup.gif

I suppose for me I consider my Thai selection a collection because I own more Thai posters than anything else and although I only have 40-50 approx. it's already many more than I ever dreamed I'd own when I first started collecting them, so I guess to me it is a sort of mini collection, but, obviously we're coming from a totally different place in that I own less than 100 posters in total compared to your many thousands ;D

Youíll get there.  19 years ago, I had less than 100 posters.  I even had a list (which I still have).  And look at me now.  This year has been ridiculously low in purchases, but god willing (that is if the pandemic doesnít take us all) weíll be back next year.
