Less than one month until street date, so I thought I would share some inside page images with you guys:

I did not - not accept it.  Other things happened and I forgot about it.  Believe it or not, but there are other things in life than posters. 

Of course there are - in fact I think you and I are in agreement about two of those things.
Accepting doesn't mean going that day, but it is certainly something that if you make time for it in your schedule you won't regret it.

In fact. I would love to buy a Spanish poster but just can't find one that appeals to me.

To me the Spanish poster for Godzilla is one of the three best posters on the film.
So happy when I was able to add this to my collection.
The fact that it is printed in my wife's native language is a bonus.  Smiley

Ron and Margaret are great folks.  I've known them for years and when I'm in LA, I get to live on their couch.  Words cannot express what their house is like.  To wake up in the early am hours and have all the early Unis emerge from the darkness is a sight to behold.  By all means, never, ever turn down an invite.

No doubt Lynn.
The first time I went there I am not sure how many times I had to be picked up off the floor, simply amazing.
Can't imagine having an invitation to go and not accepting, it's just incredible to see such beautiful pieces all together at once.
You can sit in the living room and stare all day.

Where's the Corman FF poster? And the 70s Marvel stuff?
Unmade Cannon Spidey poster from 85, the 1990 Captain America poster, Punisher...and we won't even start on foreign stuff.
You need to get cracking

Very nice, Sean. Which film is that one for?

And what size is that?

 cool



Thanks - that is a 3-sheet (3 x B1 verticals) for Ghidrah, the Three-Headed Monster

Why am I not wanting any of these?

Maybe I am a little jaded as I picked up one of the top Godzilla posters of all time this week.

LOL my bad. I must have been tired when I posted that.

Oh yeah, it is also crazily overpriced.
To give you an idea, here is average prices for the Godzilla movies right before and after Hedorah (the one he is selling):

Destroy All Monsters (1968) $1200-1500
Godzilla's Revenge (1969) $900-1200
Godzilla vs. Hedora (1971) Huh??
Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) $300-400
Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) $200-300

There is a big drop-off in prices once the 70s movies start and that price is just out of line with any sort of reality (especially for the condition).

10  Common Poster Subjects / The Dealer/Auctioneer/Seller Round Table / Re: Changes at MoviePosterExchange on: April 02, 2014, 02:46:15 PM
Because it is a dealer related topic, discussing a change in their (MPE's) selling procedures, in some cases.  Had Peter posted this directly, it would have been placed here, as well.

There is quite a long thread in general about recent changes in HA's selling procedures, of which you were the first person to comment on the thread, yet it remains in general.

Why was a post by a non-dealer moved to the dealers forum on a topic of general conversation?
12  Common Poster Subjects / Authentication / Re: Official Thai Movie Poster Authentication Thread on: April 02, 2014, 11:28:30 AM

Not a Thai poster.
Thought this was a discussion about Thai posters

Has anyone else seen this at MoviePosterExchange?



It seems like MPE is going to allow direct selling between buyers and sellers - or at least some sort of contact.

Still hoping.

For a cool $1.5 mil

Bride of Frank teaser, care of Todd F.




Well if you're not going to sell a poster, better to not sell it at double your previous asking price.

What's the difference between a printer's proof and a regular untrimmed poster again?

So not only is the 3% charge not disclosed in the catalog as required by Visa rules, but the states where Heritage is operating a showroom have specifically made it illegal to place a surcharge.

Sounds like a call to Heritage is in order as well as a complaint to the state attorney general.

Heard of another one of these anywhere Bruce?
I keep hoping that your buyer will give it back to you to auction again one day.

Wow, really?  I find it extremely sad that a poster dealer, meaning someone whose business it is to buy and sell movie posters, therefore someone who should know a little bit more about them than say the average collector, would have to google "Ballester".  Granted, Anselmo Ballester is no "Pretty Woman," but still...

T

I know that Ballesters are very difficult to find in any condition and that a long time can go by without one coming up for sale.
20  Movie Posters / General Discussion / Poster Dimensions on: March 24, 2014, 07:40:30 PM
Ok, this might seem kind of nit-picky, but what do you guys feel is the correct way to write poster dimensions?

Most people write dimensions as X,Y with X being horizontal axis and then Y being vertical.  So for that 27 x 41 or 14 x 36 makes sense.
But... what about lobbies always being quoted at 11 x 14, or half sheets at 22 x 28, or Quads art 30 x 40?
They can't both be right.

I consulted the Chicago Manual of Style and they agree with reporting as X,Y - except in the case of fine art.
For fine art, they stated that the standard is height first and then width. So the 11 x 14 and Quad people would have it correct. But are you ready to start saying one-sheets are 41 x 27?

Just wondering other people's opinions on this.

Looks like the Son Of Kong 3 sheet that sold in the Nov 3013, Sig auction, for $22,705.00 is now available for sale...

It can be yours, for only $34,500.00


If I was that seller, I would have taken the quick 20% profit that was offered barely a week after the sale was over.
Considering the first time one of these came to market (not even a decade ago) it sold for over $50K, I would say it's further evidence of downward trends for 30s horror.
22  Movie Posters / General Discussion / Re: Post-auction analysis - OMGs!, LOLs!, WTFs!, whatev.... on: March 23, 2014, 07:17:32 PM
$2 mil. is not that much money, Rich, especially for the amount of posters they had for sale.  Their estimates on most posters were way higher.  So my question remains, was it or was it not a good sale, especially compared to previous ones.

T

Not sure on which posters their estimates were "way higher", that might just be perception based on one or two high-visibility pieces (Like the '47 Dracula 3-sheet, which was estimated at double the price of the '38 Frankenstein 3-sheet's last sale).
I went to the auction results page and just clicked on page 4 and checked through a dozen or so results and everything was within or over the estimate except for the Sunset Boulevard insert (which was within $130 of low estimate). So it seems pretty solid.

There are barely over a handful of players who do $1 million+ in sales per year, let alone double that number in a weekend. It takes Heritage's next closest competitor about 5 months of all sales combined to reach that 2 million number.

A large number of unused examples of these were found decades ago along with numerous "Georges" and "Carters". Every Houdini collector has one.

So, you are saying that this might be the lowest condition copy known?  Tongue

Definitely seems I have seen a few more of these over the years than I ever should have.
24  Movie Posters / General Discussion / Re: Post-auction analysis - OMGs!, LOLs!, WTFs!, whatev.... on: March 22, 2014, 05:04:25 PM
Obviously the 80K was a bit on the high side, but has anyone ever heard of ANY re-release poster (of any size) selling for $71K?

47 Dracula material continues to be the gold standard in re-release prices.
