Also bought this Moss a few weeks ago.  Forgot to post it.  I really like it.  Notice the gun.

I dont get the use of eastern language text on prints these days. I thought Die Hard took place in the US and was originally released here, maybe I missed the Japan tie in somewhere last time I watched it.

In the movie, Holly McClane works for Nakatomi, a Japanese company. The building is Nakatomi Plaza.

Looks like Struzan attended MondoCon and was on hand when these 2 prints were first offered there, at the beginning of November.

Too much money for print size, I pretty much quit buying 18x24 all together.   

I did get the Ise Labyrinth today, but would trade if for a reg, I dont like the monotone prints.  Also got the Batman.  I suppose the Jaws and Rogue One they didnt hold any for online sales.

These Struzans do nothing for me.  I think it's the first time ever I won't be buying a Struzan.

And yeah, size is key (that's what she said!).  I canceled my Bullitt order yesterday after they messed up the sizes.  They had originally advertised it as a 24x36in.  It was 18x24in.  How could they make a mistake like that in July and not inform the buyers until yesterday.

Ridiculous.  Boo Mondo!!!

I think the likenesses and artistry on both those Struzans is fantastic. And the monochrome style I really like, too.

But I also wish they had been printed (or offered) in a larger size, too.

And I'd take either of these before the latest JAWS print by Durieux, which does zilch for me.
