This is the fourth article on the site today !

UnseenPresence said...

reposting because it was just at the bottom.

Speaking of whether this gets the 'tone' of LOST--for me, it certainly does.

For me, at least, the moment when the numbers flipped over to the glyphs WASN'T chaotic. It's very, very crystal calm--a "WtF???" reaction that was a calm in the CENTER of chaos.

So for me, specifically, I think this caught that moment dead spot on. As for what/why we're buying, I honestly didn't know the author until after I'd gotten my order. I bought it because:

A) only 3200 total posters
B) The poster called to me when it appeared
C) The glyphs are my personal favorite moment in the show

Can't speak for anyone else.

thorsten said...

Nice, clean slate. Repost your story, Amy Lynn…

Amy Lynn said...

Which story?

thorsten said...

Well, the Kate/Jack dialogue. Because now it is lost in the old thread…

Sayid'sgirl said...

Dang! I still trying to catch up on the last thread. While I was doing that I was posting in the thread before. lol

At least I'm posting in the right thread now.

thorsten said...

So how was your day, Sayid'sgirl?

Amy Lynn said...

KATE: Hey.
JACK: Hey.
KATE: Saw your LOST poster on the news. A print of you puling Boone out of the water, huh?
JACK: Old memories.
KATE: You look terrible.
JACK: [Laughs] Thanks.
KATE: Why did you call me, Jack?
[Jack hands her the URL for his print]
JACK: I was hoping that you'd heard. That maybe you’d want to buy it.
KATE: Why would I want to buy it?
JACK: I've been buying a lot.
KATE: What?
JACK: Yeah that golden pass that GoMerch gave us. I, I've been using it. Every Friday morning at 10AM PST, I wait for the reveal, and I buy a poster.[Laughs] And then I, I post my confirmation number to DarkUFO and I, have a drink, and then I F5 until they update the hub again..
KATE: Why?
JACK: Because I want the full set, Kate. I don't care about anybody else on the board. Every little clue we get or instruction, I mean I, I actually close my eyes and I pray that I can get the print in time
[Kate looks near tears as does Jack]
KATE: This is not gonna change.
JACK: No, I'm sick of lying. I made a mistake.
KATE: I have to go. Carlton’s gonna be wondering where I am...
[Jack grabs her]
JACK: We were not supposed make fun of the ARG.
KATE: Yes, we were.
[She releases herself]
KATE: Goodbye, Jack.
[She heads for her car]
JACK: We have to go back to the site, Kate.
[She gets in her car and drives away]
JACK: We have to go back!!
[A plane takes off over Jack's head]

Gold Amy Lynn, absolute gold! I read some others on Dark Ufo, one about Live Together, Die Alone and another on Locke's speech about The Others. They were so funny, very creative.

RobPerrin said...

Amy Lynn - I think we've found our head writer for season 7!

LotteryTicket said...

Hi all. I have now update 'The Official List" over at DarkUFO. I am sure there are some missing. So let me know with a reply there.

also adding FOR SALE and TRADE information if you want to share that inforamtion.

I'll be back one hour before Hiroki heads out.

scoutpost, haven't heard from Justin.

UnseenPresence said...

What's the link for the DarkUFO list?

Anonymous said...

So what time is it Eastern time if it is 11AM in Tokyo? Maybe we should be on our toes for another poster? possibly?

Amy Lynn said...

Should be 10PM EST, I believe, 7pm Pacific

13 hour difference between US eastern and Tokyo, I had figured that out the other day.

Anonymous said...

Can I just say that while I didn't try to purchase this poster as it wasn't a must buy for me, as someone who works at a graphic design firm, this is the one everyone likes the best (they are not LOST fans). It's a very different style than we've seen thus far, but I think it's very graphically appealing, personally. I understand people's feelings though in that it may not capture their feelings with the Swan Station/Desmond, etc. Just putting my two cents in and I hope that is okay.

I'm sad for everyone who wanted and was not able to get this poster. It's only going to get more difficult in the future it seems. Which makes me all the more nervous.

Thanks for making this place so great everyone. Zort, especially for all your hard work.

Martyn said...

Has anyone see this poster pop up on the others' bay yet? Really considering bidding for one. I know I shouldn't but really want it.

Lottery_Ticket, what was the link to the trading website so I can keep an eye on it in the future please?

Stew said...

Just ordered The Love Triangle, did not like this one, order #1873, if you care

Anonymous said...

Right, it's a great piece of art but not necessarily what some of us who were waiting for "The Swan" interpretation wanted or were expecting.

BTW if I may Zort, a link to a world clock:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

Anonymous said...

How does the order numbers work. Is it by poster? Or buy purchase? And by that I mean Stew buying the Love Triangle, is his number reflective of the entire collection of posters, or related to that specific poster, because I really don't get it. Yes, I am slow.

@martyn

the site is called expressobeans.com, they also keep track of ebay transactions.

I mean really guys, you have to be entirely idealistic in thinking LIMITED EDITION LOST prints would NOT be flipped by collectors...

It was bound to happen. OF COURSE that does not excuse it, but I saw this coming the minute I saw the ugly hurley poster (lol, kidding on the "ugly" part)

LightRailCoyote said...

I do not believe there is anything wrong with selling these prints on Ebay or anywhere else for that matter. I am sure the artists are aware the possibility existed their work would be on Ebay at higher prices, but whoever commissioned them and the artist are still releasing limited edition prints. If they wanted it to be for everyone then they would have done open editions.

I bought todays print, really wanted the Kevin Tong print but missed out, not sure if I will keep todays print or not as I want to see it in person first, but since they are selling out so fast it is better to get the print and then make a fair judgement.

If you ebay a print and the bidding is at or below the cost to acquire said print then you have started a relatively fair transaction (The Crash print started at 49.99. Now, considering demand for these prints, if a lot of people want to 'jack' the price up how is the person who posted the print to blame or lionized?

mrtibbs said...

I think it's the people mocking us over at expresso bean that's brought the auction thing up again, not reselling per se

Martyn said...

@LightRailCoyote...

Can I get first option on your poster if you choose to sell?

LotteryTicket said...

Amy Lynn, I'm not sure, but did you just call me "jackface"? :p funny
No, really, I have been yelling pretty much like that all day, or crying, or . .. wait I AM JACK.

MiddayShadows said...

@ Zort70 said...
" So does that make the Expresso Beans forum members "The Others" ?"

@ feel_the_insanity said...
" Oh, and to whoever posted the Espresso Beans forum page, thank you. They are REALLY bashing us "Losties" over there. One of them even saying "I'll see you on the bay." I can only assume that means Ebay."

I saw that post too and it made me cringe - it's juvenile, really. I am and EB'er, and as I've stated here before, a diehard LOST fan. Just because someone there states something childish and stupid does not mean they represent me or any number of other EB'ers that love art and LOST. You have to understand that, I mean the same logic applies here right? Does everyone else here and all they say represent you?


Please, before you dismiss the entire EB resource(one of the best places for art appreciation on the web) , take a good look around and see it as a whole first.

Zort, we've emailed in the past briefly. You've set up and amazing little community here! Massive kudos to you! I'm SO so sorry you had foul ups the past two reveals. Best of luck to you in the coming weeks!

Cheers all, and keep getting LOST! :)

maven said...

Did this really sell out in 3 min? WOW I hope nothing else grips me right away, I don't think I can compete with that pace! Congrats to all who got The Swan! Hopefully, Hiroki will be getting one of those tote bags at least! (Any pictures of the bags?)

LightRailCoyote said...

@Martyn...

IF I decide I do not wish to keep the print I will make it available at cost.

If anyway I favor one of the remaining prints to be releasted and do get said print I will not keep todays print.

I just want one (really wanted The Hatch) to commemorate the series.

MiddayShadows said...

Also, please read the thread on the LOST posters there, and you'll see for yourself....there's a lot of good discussion and LOST appreciation going on there too!

maven said...

Nevermind....I saw the tote bag on Justin's FB!

Scoutpost said...

maven there are pics on the front page of the blog too (of the tote bag).

And no, it didn't sell out in 3minutes...it was more like 2. ;)

nikkimatt said...

@Lotteryticket:
i still can't get on the DarkUFO forums.. how did you finally get there?? i have tried going to the main forum page for all of spoilerTV and i still can't connect.. i can go on regular darkUFO, just can't go to any forum page..
oh, i post as lostinslc over there:)

Justin said...

phew...just got home. long day. after the reveal, met up with a friend and went to the grove shopping center for a bit and then went back to RH and grabbed a couple extra totes. I'll send one each to Scoutpost and Lottery_ticket (can you two email me your addresses?). BTW, for anyone in the area, they still have more totes. Maybe some of you would be nice enough to pick one up for some of the people here that didn't have a chance to grab a poster. It's one per person, but by the second time i went, they had forgotten me and I had a friend with me.

thorsten said...

Good job, Justin, thanks!

LightRailCoyote said...

do you have the option of buying the print at the reveal?

Ellen said...

Hi all! This poster is really great...hope everyone here that wanted it was able to get it!
xxoo

BarbaraJay said...

I went ahead and bought The Numbers poster. It amused me from the first time I saw it, even though it has Hurley's Evil Twin. I adore the Smoke Monster print. I couldn't get it and probably won't be able to get any of the others. I had planned to get only one but if I get the opportunity to get another I like, I'll go for it. As it stands now, I'm happy with my decision. I'll have a poster that reminds me of wonderful LOST moments, on the show and as a fan, and that also makes me smile.

Eugene said...

Justin, Thanks so much for all the info today and we are all massively relieved that you were still able to get a poster.

The folks that have been tweeting or posting to the blog or faceook or whatever have made this SO exciting.

THAT'S what I so love about all this.


LHK (love, hugs & kisses)

LotteryTicket said...

Justin, thank you for think of me. I will send address. You had a big day. Hope it was fun. Pictures were great.

LotteryTicket said...

I have 40 of the 200 posters "The Swan Station" accounted for at THE LIST between this forum and Dark's.

Capcom said...

Thanks for letting us know that there are some Lost-friendly EBers like you Midday. :-)

I enjoy hearing everyone's feelings about the poster art as they are revealed, I consider it stimulating artistic conversation. I think that all the different reactions could be compared to how a movie is made of a popular book, and then everyone critiques the movie compared to what they pictured when they read the book. Some like the movie but not the visual treatment, some hate the movie but love the acting, etc. Some don't like the actors because they don't fit what readers pictured in their mind's eye.

In addition, we already love the look of Lost as TPTB created and have presented it to us on-screen. Then these "new guys" get hired to create their own take on it, and it's sooooo different from what we're used to seeing, so it works with some of us and doesn't with others.

Having said that, I've been wondering since the beginning if Jack Bender will do one for us. That would be neat.

Eugene said...

Capcom, I have never thought of Jack Bender doing one of these. I think that...might...just...be...awesome.

Justin said...

thanks everyone for the support!

Martyn said...

@LightRailCoyote...

I will gladly pay the cost + postage. Let me know IF you change your mind ;D

My days been pretty good. I'm glad I wasn't interested in this print though, I'm not sure if I would be fast enough to get one.

I'm still trying to catch up on the other thread. lol
Just refreshed her and seen your post. Back to catching up. :)

Justin said...

@lightRailCoyote - no, no option at the site to buy the print...lots of people were pounding away on their cell phones and once they figured out the poster wasn't for sale immediately, the place cleared out (presumably everyone was rushing home to a computer)

Martyn said...

Justin, thanks for going to the store and getting the URL for us :)

Justin said...

no problem amy, it was fun :)

Zort70 said...

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

It's a pleasure to do this when there are so many good people around.

BarbaraJay, out of interest what was your order number ?

Justin said...

Damn, i need to get whatever type of internet that andyschex has!

MEL

BarbaraJay said...

Zort, my order number was 1875.

Somebody mentioned a while back the financial costs of operating this blog. I was aware of the tremendous amount of time and talent that goes into this, and I'm so grateful. If I can pitch in to offset the financial, just let me know.

thorsten said...

Hi Sayid'sgirl, good to see you!

LotteryTicket said...

Hi MEL, I could use all the laughter you can dish out. Tks.

Hiroki in the hizza houza.

LotteryTicket said...

That means he is on the facebook. Coudy with a chance of reveal.

Amy Lynn said...

Shot of Locke with the Swan station poster. Walt approaches, curious.
WALT: What is it, like art?
LOCKE: Not really, it's part of a game, better than just… art. You've made art with your Pop?
WALT: No. I live in Australia with my mom.
LOCKE: You have no accent.
WALT: Yeah, I know. We move a lot. She got sick. She died a couple of weeks ago.
LOCKE: You're having a bad month. I'm having a worse month. I'm still trying to get a copy of The Crash.
WALT: I guess.
LOCKE: Art collecting is one of the oldest hobbies in the civilized world. Adam and Eve had copies of the Hatch. Not the Adam and Eve that are in the caves, the ones that are older than Jesus Christ.
WALT: Did they have the internet and stuff?
LOCKE: [nods] Mhhm. But theirs wasn't as fast as ours. They didn't have Verizon Fios.
WALT: Cool.
LOCKE: Many players players. Two sides. One is light … one is dark. Walt, do you want to know a secret?

jeremy138 said...

Wow! 2 Swan posters already on Ebay. Tearow is selling again.

@lottery my Swan order #1834

Anonymous said...

Does anyone think the comment about 10AM PT sharp was talking more about the sale time than the reveal time?

Zort70 said...

To all concerned about by financial status, fear not, all is well.

Seriously, apart from the domain name, the site costs nothing apart from my time to run.

Also before someone asks the other question, there are no adverts on the site that I or any of the other admins get any money for, so the site is cash neutral :-)

Martyn, could you delete that The other address is a URL that has not been officially revealed yet, so technically I should ask you to delete the comment Martyn.

jeremy138 said...

Having alot of Swan posters on ebay might be a good thing. It will keep the price down and maybe people will think twice about buying future prints just to sell. I doubt it though.

Zort70 said...

Sorry, that sounded wrong.

Tyson seemed to make a mistake today and made the other URL active by mistake, someone just trying all the URL's found it and decided to post it, causing mass confusion and LotteryTicket to miss out on a poster.

LotteryTicket said...

don't make me all weepy again, just come out of my all day slump

Zort70 said...

Right, I'm going to sleep now, I can't stay up for the Tokyo opening.

Post lots of pictures for the various people going, and I'll create a catch up post tomorrow morning.

Oh and if any more posters do get sold, remember your old pal Zort ;-)

thorsten said...

G'nite, Zort!

Martyn said...

Sorry, will re-phrase:

Out of interest, I read about two web addresses, one of which wasn't trustmeleaveitbe.com.

I tried them both on phone and the swan popped up on both web addresses. Tried it again a second ago, and the former has gone back to gomerch beta. Does anyone know what was going on with that or am I just going crazy here?

Chris Maccagnano said...

Hey Everybody! I just wanted to let you all know that I have decided to sell my print on Ebay. #7 - "The Smoke Monster" by Ken Taylor. My intentions were to buy several of these, have them framed, and place them in my living room - but it's becoming near impossible to find another one as they sell out so quickly. So if you'd like to bid on this one, it's at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120484336522
Happy Bidding!

Martyn said...

Oh right.

Well what if they only sold 100 for trustmeleaveitbe.com and another 100 for the other one, which will be released at the Japan store. The last clue does say:

With the print reveal already in the bag, stop by Ron Herman Tokyo on Saturday, October 24th if you missed out.

So it makes me feel like staying up til 3am BST to see what happens.

Actually, just checked the poster list and it's over 200 order numbers so blows my hopes out the water. Part of me still wants to wait up til 3am though.

LotteryTicket said...

Chris Maccagnano said...

Sorry about that, Zort. Just know that I'm not some random douche trying to buy these up to make a profit - I am a HUGE Lost fan and was estatic to get this one. But like I said, I can't seem to get any more and I'm getting frustrated. So if you or anyone else here would like "The Smoke Monster" I would rather sell it to true Lost fans, then people just looking to cash in. Thanks!

Do we think we will have another reveal or will the store be giving out more bags?

Martyn said...

I'm off for two hour nap but will be back because i'm sure something is going to happen in Tokyo, otherwise what was the point of revealing it there?

I hope there is more to it than just the bags. So I am stayng tuned for a while.

Amy Lynn, this is dedicated to you. Haha.

JACOB: I take it you're here cause of the poster reveal.
MIB: I am. How did they find the URL?
JACOB: You'll have to ask them when they get back from Ron Herman's.
MIB: I don't have to ask...we told them the URL. Still trying to prove me wrong about how those posters end up on EBAY?
JACOB: You are wrong.
MIB: Am I? They come, find the url, buy the poster, then sell it. It always ends on EBAY.
JACOB: It only ends once, anything before that is just people hitting F5 constantly .
MIB: Do you have any idea how badly I want a copy of The Crash?
Jacob: Yes.
MIB: One of these days, sooner or later, I'm going to get enough money so I can afford the ridiculous $900 asking price.
Jacob: Well when you do I'll be right here, staring at my copy because you were too slow in hitting the Buy Now button.

Why haven't you spoke up for the print that was bought today from "the fund"? You missed out on the print by error and are collecting all of them, that is what the fund was for.

I just read that the print is going to the person holding the funds? Are you kidding me? Please speak up for yourself!

Mel are you a complete set collector or were you just yanking our collective chain about not liking the Swan?

Doesn't show Sold Out for me either, and I've got cache cleared and everything.

Anonymous said...

I've no had no problems getting on and off Darks site or forums at all today, don't know what thats about. Also, The Numbers hasn't showed as sold out either. However...for e.g. sometimes if I go to check my account for some reason if I go to that url, in order to view my account I have to "buy now" then remove it, if that makes sense. If others are having this issue, it may be a reason for it showing as "sold out" on and off.

UnseenPresence said...

Each day I sigh that I did not get Locke's Secret.

That being said, even if Mel really DOESN'T like this poster (which she can certainly do), this is my 2nd favorite one.

Shane ..I can write a 500 word essay about whats wrong with this print,,and,,I can write a 500 word essay about what is right about this print. That conflict,,is the nature of The Swan though. Both the Swan hatch in the show and this print share that aspect. For me to say much more only gives the art groupies something they can cut and paste and claim as their own. So , perhaps later , any more wil be said about the Swan,by moi.

Missed most of this reveal and lead-in. What twitter feed are you following for Hiroki?

maven said...

I guess he was showing the traffic he was in.

ReverendMilo said...

I would love to end up with one of the t-shirts, bags or anything from one of these releases.

I did get a lighter pocketbook from covering the FOB dallas event, but it turned out I was the only one there giving Lost swag out...

Sandman90 said...

Thanks Maven.

there in a meeting?

maven said...

"im at rhjapan theyre inmeeting"

How dare they have a meeting now! LOL

maven said...

Maybe they're discussing how to give everything to Hiroki!

feel_the_insanity said...

It would be so awesome if they released another poster right now. Only the die-hard fans are actually still following this thing so soon after a reveal! Sadly, that's a mere dream.

THE ANTICIPATION IS KILLING ME

JPL said...

@All - Just finished catching up on today's reveal comments. A tad bit dismayed. :(

Our little "island" has become a vibrant global community where theories are shared, clues are investigated, jokes are cracked, and random acts of kindness take place on a regular basis. This is a true testament to Zort for keeping us together and all of us who post on this blog.

The next 6 weeks look to be quite the adventure, but glad that you're all going to be a part of it. I wouldn't want to go it without you guys. Thanks for making this experience what it is!

Roswell said...

yeah, they rather reveal anything, it´s almost 4am here in Spain, lol

Sandman90 said...

FTI - It would be great but I would be truly surprised.

Scoutpost said...

@JPL- feel the love- group hug everybody!

LotteryTicket said...

OK. Today as most of you know I FAILED, just like on YouTube. It happened. I took what looked to be legit URL and real. I failed to follow my tweople. I refreshed for minutes. It was the poster. It said "ON SALE SOON". It changed to "BUY NOW". The failure to accept my user/password made my skin crawl. I was in trouble. Grabbed the DCaaPB link (as I should have done in the first place) and BLAM SOLD OUT! 2 minutes.

Heart sank and rose as you all everybody started posting order numbers. And believe me when I say this, I was glad to see you getting through. But sad to hear that poster buddies unable to get through. How many did not get a poster?

So back to work. Gathered order numbers here and hopped to DarkUFO to gather and post to THE LIST.

intermission

Capcom said...

Squeeze! :-D

maven said...

arms outstretched to everyone!

LotteryTicket said...

Hiroki reports that RH are in a meeting!

LotteryTicket said...

ha ha. we'll have to wait a bit more

Capcom said...

I'm wondering if #16 wil be the release of all the rest of the "100 of each poster" in a free-for-all-buyout. Or, they'll save the extras for the auction next year.

maven said...

still 9 min. until opening

Capcom said...

Poor Hiroki!

LotteryTicket said...

picture is of employees grouped together in the middle of the store

Capcom said...

I wonder if they are meeting about how to run this promo thing.

ReverendMilo said...

Capcom,

I think we have puzzled together that 40 prints stay with the artist, 10 prints stay with the gallery, and 50 prints belong to disney.

Scoutpost said...

I don't think so capcom, but that's just my opinion. I do think #16 will be special somehow. Good luck getting that one I bet.

feel_the_insanity said...

They updated the DCAAPB site with the pictures of the tote bag...cool collector's item. But, didn't Ron Herman design this? And he's a professional designer? Haha, I could design this!

Sandman90 said...

I didn't get the print - it wasn't for me. But after catching up on events and the absurdly fast sellout, I really regret not having bought it for one of you regulars I see here as I did put it in the cart as a reflex exercise (and removed just as quickly). I would gladly do so at cost and I have considered trying to be a poster buddy but am not always sure how reliable I'll be. Sorry for those of you who missed. I'll help if I can...

maven said...

#16 will be impossible to get!

Scoutpost said...

They're in a meeting about crowd control. ;)

Capcom said...

Oh, thanks guys! I would not have like a free-for-all sale.

ReverendMilo said...

And I think we can bank on the gallery and artist prints to not be allowed to go on market until after the first of the year at a minimum

Rachel said...

If they can do something in tokyo, there is still a small chance they will do something in NZ (I know, very, very, very small :(

maven said...

I hope the rest of the releases are like today....main one in US and something else international!!

Scoutpost said...

never give up on NZ..they did a giveaway in Tucson, AZ for pete's sake.

Anonymous said...

..if you consider a book mark a give away..

I bet those bookmarks are being scalped on Ebay

Frank said...

My brother should be at the Tokyo store any time now.. waiting for confirm that he's there.

kiwilostie said...

Racheal Oh man Ihave been thinking that, and wishing every day! Id drive anywhere in NZ to do a reveal!

maven said...

Great Frank...let us know everything!

Scoutpost said...

Now Hiroki will have to share the tote bags.

kiwilostie said...

Sorry - Rachel!

Frank said...

@ReverandMilo Thats what I was told by the last artist when my order got canceled.

maven said...

Anybody seen an update? I haven't.

Scoutpost said...

Haven't seen a thing.

Geoffrey said...

stillll waiting haha

Congested said...

Nope, nothing maven.

LotteryTicket said...

. . . back to the story

click bookmark for SpoilerTV forums. nothing. click again. nothing. WHAT? Amy Lynn (thank you again) told me they were up. Andy at Dark finally backdoored (oooh we don't like that word) me in. But the days drama continued there as well. Buddies apologizing to buddies. Elated LOST fans posting order numbers, but not many. I gathered and updated THE LIST. Removing my *. I mentioned my plight. Discussions about two or more active URLs. E-mail to Zort70. He too did not meet the challenge, again.

So on to tonights reveal. Something positive to focus on. Hiroki wakes up to my FB ping.

to be continued.. .

LotteryTicket said...

he's going in.

Congested said...

From the chat room (http://www.lostargschat.blogspot.com/):

[10:07pm] FrankBoisvert: my brother says "Met Hiroki. He said the store manager doesn't know anything about it and that it's "ridiculous.""

Capcom said...

They ought to do something Down Under, it's "...the key to the whole game". :-)
