Exciting day!

Amy Lynn said...

Yay! First?

reAnimated said...

hehe

Frank said...

I'm ready!

bygnerd said...

zort-- We're all loving the RH Dharma logo. Nice touch :)

maven said...

Here for a few hours, then I'll try and see the poster on my iPhone!

eXo said...

2 hours... the question is... do I leave for lunch now, so i can be back in time... or put off going to lunch until after the whole thing.... but if its one I want, then after the reveal I still have to wait for the sale link to pop up... and that could take a while....

what to do, what to do

reAnimated said...

eXo, what time zone are you in? for me (Central) its still a bit early for lunch. Im going to try to just take a late lunch today i suppose.

1miletogo said...

Good luck on getting a print today everyone!

tupalev said...

Arranged to work from home today, I'm ready ! :)

ReverendMilo said...

The Transmission just arrived at my house. I got print 103.

I may not be able to update DCaaPB.com until tomorrow night though.

good morning all!

reAnimated said...

@tupalev, Me too. devious, I know. :)

eXo said...

@reAnimated - I am in the central time zone. Yes, it is still too early for lunch.

Then again, ym work day starts at 6:30am and I'm off at 2pm today.... so if I take my lunch at 1... i might as well just go home.

ReverendMilo said...

I'm at the office today coding, thus I'm abstaining from the chat right now.

:)

maven said...

Justin is on his way, but has a lot of morning rush hour traffic to get through...I think he left in plenty of time!

Justin said...

I'm here at the store now, don't know how much I'll be able to post here...

Wait, they're opening the window now :)

Justin said...

Don't see anything yet. I'll see if I can talk to anyone

eXo said...

Hmm, and here I was just about to go to lunch....

goheels83 said...

You are awesome Justin, thanks for keeping us updated!

Adam said...

I just have a gut feeling that today's is going to be spectacular.

Scoutpost said...

I see the mob is all here and assembled!

Should be an interesting morning to say the least. I should probably go to the bathroom now, seeing as I'll be glued to the computer for the next hour and a half or so. ;)

Shane said...

Wow the suspense is killing me! I hope it's good.

Claire said...

Hey guys!

I usually lurk here but I'm so excited for the reveal! *crosses fingers for a Ben poster*

I have a question about the payment. Random, I know.

When I bought the last poster (first one, finally decided I would spend the money!) it charged me right after I bought it and now it's gone from my statement and the money is back into my account. Do they bill you when they ship the poster? I'm just wondering because I want to buy today's without getting overdrawn. It would be soo nice to get billed when it ships because I am a lowly college student with a part-time job spending all my money on these posters! Worth it? Yes!

Thanks so much and good luck to everyone!

John-Paul said...

Hey everyone. Happy reveal day. My heart is excited and my wallet is not.

John-Paul said...

I don't know Claire, it sounds like you might be one of the refunded people...

Frank said...

Someone post pics!

Lars said...

Hello all! I love poster days! My heart's hoping I love this next one, and my wallet's hoping I don't like it.

Claire - you may have been one of the "Oceanic 15" 15 orders for Transmission that got refunded due to overselling. :(

back_gammon said...

Good lucky, everyone! I hope it's a great Ben poster!

Lars said...

Look at that. I think I just repeated everything John-Paul said.

hah. oops!

maven said...

Exciting!

Claire said...

:( I didn't recieve an email though. I got an order number and 2 confirmation emails :(

Lars said...

Claire - what was your order #?

LotteryTicket said...

Hi all. Chaos. Shaking out the fingers.

comixguru said...

am i the only one who's heart is pounding and tummy is a bundle of nerves? oh these reveals are going to be the death of me!

Eugene said...

@comixguru...you are NOT the only one. I need a beta blocker.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, I'm back. I got in the car turned on the SatNav which has real time traffic updates and just as I set off all the roads started turning red !

I need a SatNav with real time aRG updates.

John-Paul said...

I'm pretty excited too Guru. It sucked having to wait all the way until friday this time around.

comixguru said...

Eugene- i have no idea what a beta blocker is- but i want it. maybe i should just take some xanax. :)

Scoutpost said...

No I'm feeling the same way comixguru...but this is the first time I've felt this way. I think because of the drama of the last reveal.

claire- maybe you're getting your poster for free because your name is...Claire? ;)

Claire said...

My order # was 1578.

Thanks for your help everyone

comixguru said...

I just totally asked my boss if i could leave our meeting around 10AM for about 15-20 minutes. and she said yes!!! :) feeling slightly guilt-ridden... but not _that_ guiltly...

Scoutpost said...

Not too much Xanax...you don't want to be asleep or interfere with your fast functioning fingers!

Frank said...

Ha. Welcome back Zort.

RobPerrin said...

@comixguru -- meetings are a dime a dozen. Today will be the only Lost poster #10 reveal in the universe, EVER!

maven said...

I just told my friends I would be about 15 min. late to my meeting!!! If they only knew what for! Hahaha

Lars said...

Odd, I don't think 1578 was in the area of the 15.. I thought those were in the 1600's.

Maybe shoot TGcustomerservice@gmail.com a message?

oruga_xxx said...

Claire, I also got refunded!!!

The thing is that a few days after the poster was charged again with no confirmation from GoMerch. Still waiting for a reply to a mail I sent to them. The order is stated "returned" but they earned the money with no furher advise. I hope it means that my order, in the end, is still valid.

Maybe we still have chances ;)

Scoutpost said...

Bonnie, you are going to lose all your friends. First your mah johngg group...

Eugene said...

I think we're up around 1660 to 1670 now.

LotteryTicket said...

Desmondia reporting stuck in traffic.

follow @desmondia Twitter

comixguru said...

RobPerrin- i totally agree! :) just glad i will be able to sneak away... hope the poster is available to "buy now" very shortly after 10am...

Mrs Z said...

Scoutpost - She'll still have us!

Eugene said...

I just blew off a company wide conference call. Probably announcing more layoffs. Much more fun here

tupalev said...

To help calm my nerves I just received my smokey print - #262. It took a while but was worth it!

Mrs Z said...

Comix - I hope the opposite - I'm stuck in a 1:00 meeting so I want the Buy Now at 1:30!

maven said...

Scoutpost: I figured I'd be a wreck trying to do this on the iPhone while trying to play Mah Jongg! Let them play a few 3 player games without me! LOL

kiwilostie said...

Morning all. Rev, what happened last night? I was havin a great time chatting w/you n you dissappeared on me!

Shane said...

I just got my Hatch poster today while waiting for this reveal! YEAH! It is cooool.

Scoutpost said...

Just talked to Justin...
He's there, only about 6 people at the store now. Nothing else to report, no store action yet.

maven said...

5 people are with Justin outside the store.

LostinLondon said...

Yay! so excited

Everyone has gone home now - it is Friday after all so they are knocking off on time. I am the loner glued to my computer!

Totally worth it though!

Scoutpost said...

That's right Mrs. Z...maven you'll still have us as your friends!

This reminds me of TLE...all the lost work productivity. At least now there's a recession. ;)

Claire said...

I think I'll do that Lars, thanks! Good thing I'm not in the "Oceanic 15" though lol.

Scoutpost, that would be my dream! lol

And oruga_xxx at least I'm not the only one. Maybe it's different with certain banks or something? It's really weird. Hopefully they fix it!

Zort70 said...

Scoutpost, are any of them Twitterers ?

Anonymous said...

Just made PBJs for lunch. All settled in for some F5 action! Hoping for a Dharma Wheel poster. Nervous...Anxious...Excited!!!

RobPerrin said...

This will be the longest 30 minutes of my life...

maven said...

I "heart" you guys! My Mah Jongg friends think I'm crazy! LOL You're the only ones who understand me!

maven said...

Follow @desmondia on twitter

Anonymous said...

Only 6 people there? is this a good sign?

Scoutpost said...

Zort...don't know. I'll ask Justin.

oruga_xxx said...

Claire:

The thing is that they charged my credit card, they gave me back the money (this on the same day of the relevation of the poster) and 4 days later charged my card again.

I hope it's due to available posters. Otherwise I'm gonna get mad at GoMerch!

:)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Desmondia tweeted traffic! 10 minutes ago.

Scoutpost said...

The suspense!!!

Eugene said...

Desmondia is there too now

ReverendMilo said...

hey Kiwi!

yeah, I am a single dad of a 2.5 YO and ended up falling asleep on my daughters floor at night night time for a bit.

Woke up and realized the housekeeper/ex-girlfriend was coming to clean today so I had to stay offline to prepare the house.

13 min
I'm freakin!

Scoutpost said...

Thank goodness Desmondia made it. Now I guess we just wait....

maven said...

I have so many windows open now....

Sam G said...

When I went to Crumbs - so long ago there were only about 7 Losties too.

Sayid'sgirl said...

eeek this is the best part of this. lol

Eugene said...

I think there were 12 at Johnny Cupcakes.

maven said...

There were 5 of us at Rusty's.

Mrs Z said...

There were 20 of us at...oh wait, they haven't done a reveal in Michigan... ;)

kiwilostie said...

Rev, Nice. Gettinmg the butterflies already! 10 mins!

Scoutpost said...

This is going to be the longest 10 minutes ever.

Maybe if they all go up to the door and press their noses against the glass they'll let them in early.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol scoutpost

eXo said...

I hope the site works this time... sucks that last time we had to manually type the /dcpb/viiii/ part to get the link to work

Scoutpost said...

Desmondia isn't tweeting, Justin isn't calling...this is like the 2 minutes of silence the astronauts have when they re-enter the earth's atmosphere.

Shane said...

When I worked at the mall we called those people "gate monkeys" An affectionate term for people waiting for you to open

Eugene said...

Gate Monkeys. That's awesome.

Anonymous said...

better than porch monkeys.....

Chester Pendragon McFisticuffs said...

@Eugene

Haha... yeah. And that includes the two bewildered employees I think :)

LotteryTicket said...

Justin has nice photos up at facebook

Scoutpost said...

...or flying demon monkeys!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Why does my phone always ring during these things?

kiwilostie said...

exo yeah! who knows what strange romans they will use for 10! this time

LotteryTicket said...

maven, or scoutpost, do you have one of them on the phone?

dylansdad said...

Go merch monkeys

Shane said...

Whoa Anon, never thought about that, no offense intended if anyone took

Scoutpost said...

Waiting for Justin to call any minute.

eXo said...

I wouldnt be surprised if their roman numeral for 10 is VV...lol

Zort70 said...

LT - what is the link to the photo's ?

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol merch monkeys I like that!

Anonymous said...

lol - I don't think anyone took offense. Your comment just immediately took me to that Clerks 2 conversation.

Frankly, i don't think anyone else even knew porch monkey was negative...

andrew said...

this wait is giving me an ulcer

Shane said...

We are all definetly merch monkeys!

maven said...

Desmondia posted a pic, too.

kiwilostie said...

F5'ing all over the world....

LostinLondon said...

arrgh! it's all too much!

John-Paul said...

I need that computer that Jackman had in Swordfish with like 12 screens so i can dominate the reveal day activities.

maven said...

Desmondi'a pic

Scoutpost said...

About 14 people there now.

Shane said...

Oh ya, I had totally forgotten about that convo in Clerks 2, hilarious!

Scoutpost said...

Sayid'sgirl said...

You're faster than me maven. When I hurry I always mess up the code. :)

Deneph said...

eXo said...

MiddayShadows said...

Chester Pendragon McFisticuffs said...

GREAT POSTER!

thorsten said...

Gomerch beta again ;))

knightsintodreams said...

how do i get the url to work? or did he say it too early ;_; ;last week traumatized me...

Zort70 said...

Don't post URL's until they have been revealed

mistersh0w said...

@Maven - That's my buddy Mark (with the hat on) in that pic you posted! YAY!

eXo said...

ah ha... thats wierd. The link i posted worked too, but it wasnt the same.

Scoutpost said...

www.trustmejustleaveitbe.com

Justin reported it from the store.

knightsintodreams said...

ooh neat~!! not my style, but appreciated :D coool~

Lars said...

EH, nice poster. I'm gonna pass on this one though. good luck to all who want it!

MeSoCrazy said...

Hot dog. That's cool.

maven said...

How did they reveal it?

eXo said...

i might get this one.... its the first i have considered buying... although it is definitely vague.

I love the color scheme though

thorsten said...

thanks Scoutpost!

LostinLondon said...

Thanks Scoutpost - so exciting!

I am not getting anything up though
:(

Scoutpost said...

Let the f5ing begin!

maven said...

Awesome poster...but not enough for me to get it!! Good luck for those going for it.

Anonymous said...

Awesome poster. Wow.

roBotBoy said...

kicking off what will be a long converasation. "nooooooo"

Sayid'sgirl said...

Someone gave out the wrong url is why it didn't work.
Scoutpost's is the right one.

eXo said...

no, I've decided against getting it. It doesn't capture any particular moment that I really loved about lost.

Scoutpost said...

It was in the jeans department. Don't know exactly.

Brian M. said...

okay now this is my first time franticly reloading a page to get this poster. how long until it's actually up for sale? i have to leave for work soon and i don't want to miss out! i love this design!

Ariana said...

trustmejustleaveitbe.com via fancfl

RobPerrin said...

Doesn't quite reach the buy threshold for me.

eXo said...

@sayid'sgirl - the link i posted did work if you add the /dcpb/x/ to the end of it. It just wasnt the one they went with.

I had no clue that they would point several URL's to it, and change the rest later.

CreedFeed said...

Its actually ugly to me... ugh... was hoping for something better :-/

The Bench Coach said...

What are the symbols at the top?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I wanted a Swan poster but I think I'll pass on this one too.

knightsintodreams said...

post a pic of the jeans that had the url on 'em :D

Claire said...

eXo- I feel the same way. It's really cool but doesn't capture a moment. Good luck to everyone buying it!

thorsten said...

Rob Jones:

Walkindude125 said...

That url is from epi. 4.10 "Something Nice Back Home". Hahaha I just watched it last night!

Amy Lynn said...

I'm passing again, let those who really want it go for it.

scottbphilp said...

Well that's disappointing. Maybe next week will be better. Good luck anyone who's going to go for it!

Zort70 said...

NEW POST

Scoutpost said...

Will watch for uploaded photos from Justin and/or Desmondia. But I haven't seen any yet.

Jal said...

Not my thing.

But good luck to everyone who will enjoy it.

*waits for Jay Ryan's poster*

Lars said...

the symbols at the top are Arashikage, which I relate to G.I. Joe.. lol.

LostinLondon said...

love it!

knightsintodreams said...

i think the symbols at the top is chinese fortune telling. you flip this coin thing several times, then look up in the book to see your future. that looks like the predictions, he make those symbols

Scoutpost said...

It was on a white canvas tote bag. Justin posted it in FB. Will see if I can link it but I think you have to be on FB.

eXo said...

It seems more like a poster you would get from a fanzine, like a foldout from the center of the book.

I suppose that the lack of a human character on the sheet (and the fact that the style is so different from the series) makes it hard to relate to.

Why not something that dealth with the map on the back of the blast door, or the blood splatter on the ceiling. Hell, that would have been fairly cool if it was the blood splatter making the swan design above an event taking place in the station, such as desmond holding a gun up to jack and locke.

Scoutpost said...

Desmondia said pics are coming soon. She posts to twitter so I will link then.

dylansdad said...

Too vague/obscure. Should have worked in the 108 counter somehow. And the swan looks odd and doesn't have the surrounding Dharma border. I think I'll pass...

Sayid'sgirl said...

eXo
I apologize. But did you get your url from the list or was it from someone at the event?

Scoutpost said...

I actually really like this one, and could imagine it with certain decor. But I don't think it really fits with what I've already got, so not sure I'm going to get this one.

Adam said...

So much potential for a poster depicting the Swan (where the hell is Desmond??) Bland design and color scheme, no elements of Lost besides the counter W/ symbols. This is extremely disappointing.

Lars said...

I ching, is where it's from. That's what I was trying to think of.

Anonymous said...

rob jones is pretty much the house artist for the White Stripes, and all Jack Whites other bands. he does great stuff

Lars said...

well, that explains why it's all red, white, and black...

Patmc said...

I don't suppose we have any Egyptologists here who might know that the hieroglyphs in the poster say? :-)

comixguru said...

getting tired of f5-ing

Anonymous said...

From the Swan...Underworld!

Lars said...

there you go, boys and girls.

muschology said...

Rob Jones is amazing. Wish there was more of a halftone vibe to it like he has done so many times for the WS.

I wonder if they are getting the Virgin Mary Statues with the bag?

jeremy138 said...

kiwilostie said...

#1853. Damn thats getting up there...

Anonymous said...

kiwilostie said...

HUB is the LAST place to get the url. I wouldnt be waiting for it there...

Joe D said...

hope they didnt oversell again

Anonymous said...

That's ashame. The best they could do for The Swan Station? Very disappointing for something I was waiting for. Does this artist watch the show at all?
