WANTED: STOUT - THE THING

Hi! I'm new here to the forum and wanted to expand my search for Stout's The Thing print. Worth a shot...

Welcome to the forum, akbeyond.

That's a tough one.  Those have now become the most in demand of all Mondo prints.  The last reg sold for $2k.  I'm sure one of them will eventually pop up on eBay, but don't expect it to go for cheap.  Although 2k might be a one time only kinda thing, it definitely set the bar higher on this particular print.  When I think that it was only $40 a couple years ago...

Good luck,

T

Thanks for the welcomes!  :D

Yeah, it's a tough one. I was bidding on that one that sold for 2K+ on eBay too - I went into shock after I placed a bid of 1600+ and watched as it quickly slipped away...

I don't think so.  You can't retract yourself.  You MUST sell each and every print listed on your site at the price mentioned.

Tic Toc Tic Toc...

Waiting!

Not to mention if I made money from my site Mondo may get mad at me :(

If I recall there are two versions of this poster. One of them the infected people have golds eyes and another they have red eyes. I also think the color of the poster are different from one another. It you use the website I posted previously you can reference what I am talking about and what you are looking for on there. It will give you a better idea of which poster you want more.

I remember passing on these back in the day when prices started to climb. $200 was a rip-off I determined.

Wow. More reason why I don't mess with wall street.

My earliest Stout at this point remains to be Robocop which I am more than happy with at this point. Still, reg Thing and Big Trouble are beauts.

Those would be the two that I was talking about. Thank you for posting pics of those. Those are both great looking posters.
