Wonder why they held some back? Be interesting to see what $ they want for them.

Lisa said...

so glad I have mine and framed to boot. Love love love it !

ChrisL said...

Anyone without it should really make an effort to grab one. It's still the one I spend the most time looking at. I love it.

Zort70 said...

Still the updates on these posters are coming.

Has anyone been tracking who has sold all their posters, I have to admit I have lost count.

Zort70 said...

Right, got to get some sleep, night all.

Patmc said...

I think that the Dharma-Mobile is probably the one that has grown on me the most since I originally got it. I initially was just OK with it, but the more I've looked at it, the more I love it. The coolest thing has got to be the UV reactive ink in it... it really looks amazing under a blacklight!

ChrisL said...

Zort. I really want to make a list of those that have sold prints.... But I'm exhausted.

Night folks. When I wake our friends will have touched down in HI. Exciting.

adam_keller said...

Thanks for the update on the Van, great print!

futureself said...

I believe there are still 3 to come...

Methane Studios with Dharma Van
Eric Tan with The Crash
and
Daniel Danger with Jacob's Cabin

:D

Davide said...

Goodnight everybody, i'm going to sleep too..

Is there any news about our great effort supporting Haiti? :)

Davide said...

("Are" there.. i'm tired. goodnight :D)

futureself said...

'Is there' is correct Davide :)

Night!

ReverendMilo said...

It is still my favorite too.

John-Paul said...

Does anyone think that Lauren will have to refund those who already bought smokey?

futureself said...

I can't say I was personally ever attracted to the Dharma Van...however, after seeing your pics of it Milo I can see its charm :)

The Kharma Initiative said...

@futureself, that's a good solution to your print tube problem. Let us know if you get a response.

futureself said...

Well I like ChrisL's practical solution - chuck them in the attic. It'll give the spiders somewhere nice to live ;)

andalone said...

After making my little raft, I donated the bulk of my tubes to my framer. He will be able to put them to good use, as he sells quite a lot of unframed prints as well.

ReverendMilo said...

I made a 6 tube drum set for my toddler with my tubes.

:)

Sam G said...

:) signing on

andalone said...

Twitter is alive with all of our friends arriving in Hawaii. maven tweeted her hotel room.

comixguru has rented a Jeep for LOST sightseeing.

sigh.

ioioos said...

I'm going to smoke my tubes.

futureself said...

Andalone and Milo ~ those are great suggestions!

ioioos...good luck with that :D

ObFuSc8 said...

Last minute -- but I am going to Hawaii!

Lisa said...

wow Ob. Have fun and well, bring us back something nice :-)

futureself said...

That's great news ObFuSc8!

ObFuSc8 said...

Will have to try to stop myself from kidnapping Damon!

Weinbeeezy said...

@john-paul she is still going to ship them. she said they are shipping out on monday

Just Thinking said...

That's terrific Ob- what convinced you to go?

drsluggo said...

I'm so bummed that the Charlie print isn't going to see the light of day now... after getting the Ben & Smokey print I was really excited about the Charlie and the Bear one!

Maybe she'll do something... one can hope anyway!

Patmc said...

ObFuSc8 - That's AWESOME! Have a blast on our behalf! Oh... and if you run into Carlton... be sure to ask him if I can have my pen back. LOL!

CallieJo25 said...

Er, just a quick question... Is it harmful to a poster to store it in the tube? I probably should have asked this earlier, considering my Walt's Kidnapping hasn't left its tube since November... I'm just worried I'll end up ruining it if I store it elsewhere. =/

CallieJo25 said...

(And any framing suggestions would be welcomed as well...)

Just Thinking said...

Callie- everyone says take them out of the tubes and lay flat and protected if you are not going to frame right away.

I haven't done any great framing- but heard that a blue mat on Walt's looks good.

mungonna said...

LAT!!...I just knew you could not. Fantastic!! What a story its turning out to be!!! I shall join the gang tomorrow. I guess its time to go pack,,as soon as i check out the twitter....

GIK!
MEL

Burton said...

I got my copy of Walt's Kidnapping today. So pumped to get it. I got number 51/300! I wonder if 51 is truely the first in the series that went to the artists? If so, very exciting to get such a low number.

XXXHardcore said...

@Burton

I'd trust that you are the first person. I feel that I bought it instantly, and I was 58/300, so... I feel thel ow number is accurate! The one less inch (15 inches) is slightly odd, but like everyone has preached on here before... it truly is a see-in-person-print! I felt okay about it before, but now it is a favorite!

Burton said...

@ XXXHardcore - I have to agree with you that seeing it in person is a whole different experience. It is definitely up there in my top 3, can't wait to frame it and hang it on my wall!

throwfar said...

I missed my Walt AND Hatch delevery as Im traveling for a track meet. Cry, Cry, Cry.....

throwfar said...

I missed my Walt AND Hatch delevery as Im traveling for a track meet. Cry, Cry, Cry.....

ObFuSc8 said...

Thanks all! MEL, we will meet again!

JT -- I wouldn't have been able to go, except for basically resigning my position at work. Don't worry, it was not over this, but I was immediately "free" so why not?

Picked up Locke's Secret today from the post office, but since I have to do laundry and pack, it'll have to wait until I get back from the island to be opened.

andalone said...

@ObFuSc8 - Have wonderful time, enjoy every minute. I am happy you can go, regardless of circumstances.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Lotto is in Hawaii.

Sayid'sgirl said...

She just got lei'd
poic

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol That should say pic. I not sure what poic is. :)

Martyn said...

Hello on what has to be the longest day of my life.

Currently still at San fran airport because the plane we were on wasn't functionin properly or something. So having to wait until 9:30 for the flight, which'll touch down at 1am Hawaii time. Ugh!

Hope lottery and comixs flights were a lot easier than this. Free drinks and snacks though.

Anyway, going to catch up on what you all have been saying since this morning. Kill the time.

ObFuSc8 said...

So sorry Martyn. That really sucks.

Decided last minute to go to Hawaii, so will see you tomorrow!

Anne said...

OMG Martyn D: I *think* that means you left at 8PM last night my time and will be arriving at 6AM tomorrow. o_O;;;; Regardless that sucks hardcore. Um, drink lots of water (it really does help!).

I already knew Ob was going so she can be my rep in Hawaii too. But I expect all of those going to have at least x2 the fun on behalf of those not!

mungonna said...

So Lt got Lei'd and Martyn got what Ob8 said.Sorry to hear of your troubles Mart. I am keeping my fingers crossed and vibes positive that no mishaps delay my flite nor a sumo wrestler greets me at the airport. Finally connected with nephew, hes 5 minutes from hotel...and he knows where the ripe avocados are!

Hang in there Mart!

MEL

Martyn said...

Well, caught up to see I'll be adding obfus to my list of "famous lostARGers". Decided to get everyone to sign my Lost Uni shirt, it'll mean just as much as the cast signig it.

Well, the self-imposed bartender said that the plane will arrive, from Hawaii funnily enough, in about 40 minutes and i should be back on board by 9. Seeing lottos photos makes it more of a pain that I'm not there yet!

As long as i get to still so surfing tomorrow, I don't care. My gf is currently asleep on my lap, just to give an idea of how long this day has been. Just over 25 hours to be precise.

At least it'll be worth it in the end!

Mel & obfus...

See you tomorrow. Hopefully :s

rtfarr1 said...

Most likely not Lost related...but is anybody else attending Dallas Comic-Con this weekend?

Anne said...

@rtfarr1: If I lived in Dallas, yeah, for sure I'd go. WAY wrong area of the US though.

Ben said...

poster questions... big collectors always stress: take it out of the tube as soon as possible! buy a large folder (about $25 / £15) from an art supply shop, and some brown paper to stop the prints rubbing on each other.

As for Hawaii.... STOP IT. I'M NOT THERE AND IT'S NOT FAIR. Harumph. Off to work I go.

ioioos said...

@callie,

It won't ruin them staying in the tube, but if you can, flat store them.

With flat storing, it makes them much easier to frame, and therefore less likely to get damaged in the process.

Zort70 said...

Morning all, I'm loving the pictures from everyone on Twitter

Lisa said...

morning Zort, I wish I was getting lei'd right about now. It's like -10 here this morning while there playing on the beach lol Hope they are taking notes for the rest of us.

ChrisL said...

Morning. So excited for all of our friends arriving.

Martyn, that is hardship. Hope you're OK.

ioioos said...

Interesting. The Crash just sold for only $700 on ebay. Big drop, and well below Locke's Secret.

ChrisL said...

ioioos, people believe they have a chance at Eric's drop at a reasonable price I suspect.

ioioos said...

@ChrisL:

You mean they all think they will get the other 48 after we bag our two??

ChrisL said...

ioioos. Exactly ;-)

Ben said...

I'm afraid I had dibs on one of your two, sorry. Feel free to fight over the leftover one though.

Lisa said...

oh yeah and one is mine as well. so back off my crash poster !!

ioioos said...

I stayed up till silly O'clock last night re watching The Incident 1&2 in preparation for Wednesday night.

It got me pumped! Although I still don't know how they are going to untangle the threads and make sense in 16 weeks.

ChrisL said...

We watched it a few days ago and I felt exactly the same way.

The guys that put this video together obviously agree too.


Ben and Lisa, ioioos meant the other 46 of course.

Morning All and TGIF!!!

For our friends in Hawaii... Aloha and have fun.

For those off us who didn't score a plane ticket, consider this.

@ChrisL - after watching video & chuckling my way through... now I even have more questions that hopefully will have answers.

Off to work - have a great day!

JPL said...

Trying to post a link without having coffee = 2 deleted comments. Works now ;)

ChrisL said...

Hey JPL, well worth the effort on the links! Thanks for that.

Statue just collected from Bob the Framer and as promised - no sign of the damage. I am too impressed. On the wall and pics later.

mungonna said...

fyi...Darlton is on this morning's NPR news segment..Favorite DVDs..also extended interview at NPR.com..One of Cuse's favorite dvd= The Prisoner,1968 original..!!!

Headin to the airport
MEL

ChrisL said...

Safe journey MEL. See you on the live stream!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Have a safe trip MEL.
ChrisL
I seen that video yesterday it's really funny.
Of course anyone who played TLE know the meaning of the numbers whether they like the answer or not.

Sam G said...

Everyone traveling to Hawaii - hope you're there by now or should be there soon. Get yourself some shave ice, try some lilikoi jam. Go to Leonard's Bakery and get some malasadas. Have a great time, take lots of pictures, we're there with you in spirit. Mahalo

HenryGaleWasHere said...

I got an email from Armando Chainsawhands and it said

"I'm a big fan of the show, and rest assured, Don't Let Them Touch is available and anyone who wants one can still get one for a very affordable price :) "
pic
The Mouse can't touch this one.

kiwilostie said...

Yep. Got one yesterday. Did think that the mouse might not like it tho! Wonder how n why he chose his name?!

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Yep I liked it and told him I thought it was cool, and he told me he was a fan of the show as well. But I don't think the Mouse can stop the two bunnies, especially not from touching!

ioioos said...

Just picked up my Swan Station that they tried to deliver yesterday. No import charges...thanks Rob!

ChrisL said...

Maven is on board and about to be joining those already on the ground in HI.

Nerderific has tweeted that Damon, Carlton, Eddy, Adam &Liz are all onboard his flight and en route.

@ioioos no import charges and how superbly was it packed?! I was super impressed.

Martyn said...

Morning all.

So I got to Hawaii about 3 hours ago. Had a couple hours sleep so ready for the day. The sun is rising as I type but I have a crap view so won't be seeing it today.

Hope all is well and glad I picked up smoke break whilst I could. Defo a limited run!

Ben...

Just tell Lauren to sell them on here via email. Keep it hush hush and they'll all be sold, the mouse will never know. ;)

throwfar said...

Anyone have a link to these prints?

HenryGaleWasHere said...

good idea!

HenryGaleWasHere said...

you got enough for one more, throwfar?
;)

HenryGaleWasHere said...

you can get the bunnies print at
Don't Let Them Touch under the Portfolio section, that's what I did.

throwfar said...

Thanks!

ChrisL said...

Morning Martyn. Have a fantastic day Surfer dude!

Ben said...

pretty jealous of Hawaii folks. I really hope the Tan or Danger prints don't drop while you're out there... ;)

Amy Lynn said...

How long is the flight from LAX to Hawaii? I imagine our ARGs friends could get Darlton and Adam pretty liquored up!

throwfar said...

Its about 5hrs. Atleast thats what I remember when I went

illix said...

Hahaha, they're on the plane with Darlton? Corner them now, where there's no escape!

But seriously, the Hawaii trip sounds amazing. I've always wanted to go there anyway, and doing it for Lost would just make it that much more amazing! I wonder if in subsequent years the areas they filmed in will become a tourist destination, like the parts of New Zealand that were used for Lord of the Rings.

Sam G said...

The LOST locations are already tourist destinations with organized tours and everything. I think it's going to stay that way for a real long time.

Very cool that someone from here is on the plane with TPTB.

Justin said...

Anyone see this?

I Want One!!!

Amy Lynn said...

A few websites have the first scene(s) of Tuesday's episode up. SO TEMPTED.

ChrisL said...

I suspect, having watched it Amy, that there is nothing you don't know. Very little is given away of course. VERY little. Having said that - I know you are spoiler free. So don't go near it!

Amy Lynn said...

@ChrisL, too late, gave in :)

ChrisL said...

lol Amy!

futureself said...

Justin...I feel like the thick one in the class but what is the lost case mod? What does it do?

Thrills and spills on the taster ;)

Ray said...

Anyone in the US get their Lockes secret yet? If so, did it come USPS or delivery? Just curious, thanks!

ChrisL said...

Pic of the ABC Message in a Bottle

Amy Lynn said...

That must be where the clip comes from, no?

The Kharma Initiative said...

futureself, it's a very large customized desktop computer case.

ChrisL said...

ChrisL said...

Yes Amy, the key is a USB Memory stick

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, ChrisL, I'll consider it an ABC sanctioned leak then.

futureself said...

Thanks KI ;)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Just seen an ABC Lost promo and the had the video running backwards in it. Sawyer going back into the helicopter the freighter un-exploding etc.

ChrisL said...

Sayid's Girl, where?

ChrisL said...

Amy, very sanctioned. Clever marketing as we've come to expect. They knew it would be leaked immediately and I'm sure were ready to do it themselves if no-one else did!

Sayid'sgirl said...

ChrisL
Oh I'm sorry. It was on the TV. :)

ChrisL said...

OK SG, it'll be online any minute I'm sure ;-)

Just Thinking said...

They had that promo before The Incident on ABC. I happened to tape it, so slowed down the images- lots of backward stuff. Also, lots of quick flashes, and maybe someone I haven't seen before.

Amy Lynn said...

Was it the one with the words?

ChrisL said...

So Lotto seems to have posted a pic of our Surfer Dude Martyn but I think it may have broken Twitpics! Can anyone else connect to it?

ChrisL said...

Ah, working now.

drsluggo said...

if you cant find it, just go to youtube and seach for 'lost scene' and sort by date added. its all over the place.

Ben said...

I just picked up Olly Moss' sonic youth print from Mitch at Postersandtoys.com. At least I have ONE super cool Moss print to my name now!

Davide said...

WOW at the sneak peek.
i WANT TO TIME TRAVEL TO THE 3RD.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy Lynn
It may have been the promo with the words. I wasn't paying that close of attention.

JT
This is different from the one after the Inccident.

Just Thinking said...

The one I saw did have words- like- who will live? Also had a couple of screens from the room 23 video- like Everything Changes in front of the old coins.

Sam G said...

I saw the backwards one too. There was one someone had from ABC Studios but I think it got pulled.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think most of them have words. At least the one that I've seen anyway.
This one didn't have room 23 flashes like the one after the Inccident.

Sayid'sgirl said...

JT They just showed it again. You're right it has the room 23 flashes in it. I don't remember seeing the backwards video in it though.
Melissa at TLC said it has one new shot of season 6 in it. She has a link to it at DarkUFO.

drsluggo said...

I am now entranced by the first scene... it definitely isnt a HUGE spoiler, but it does make you think...

Davide said...

If you followed spoilers, you can understand what you have seen..

On LOST, it will never go as it seems.

Ben said...

I'm not watching it. A week today, all my problems will be solved! until then, I will selectively skim the posts. I can't believe I have to navigate the minefield for the Crash drop next week!

Anne said...

So not wanting to miss out on all the excitement . . .

. . . went and got in a car crash :D D: Yahoo was turning out of a parking lot, came across turn lane, lane we were in, and broadsided us in the lane we swerved into. All the while NEVER TURNING TO LOOK w/horn honking and all. Claims there was a "UPS truck" blocking his view, but it must have been a magical invisible truck because there was nothing there.

Was in passenger side, impact about12" behind me. No real injuries, fortunate the dog was not in the van, but the van doors are really trashed.

Actually heading to ER/urgent care now I think, thought I was fine but now in pretty serious pain on right side :(

Blah. lol. Well glad it wasn't worse.

drsluggo said...

@ Davide -

I havent seen any real spoilers so I guess thats why I'm confused by it :)

Amy Lynn said...

Anne, OMG. Feel better!

Davide said...

I'll never discuss them here, i may get cursed. :D

Sam G said...

Full moon drivers. Watch out.

OH, they're going to have a beautiful full moon in Hawaii tonight.

Davide said...

WTF Anne.
I hope you are OK!

Just Thinking said...

Hope you're OK Anne. I was driving home and the moon was fierce and white and cold. There were beeping horns and tires spinning on sand too. Yep- be careful.

futureself said...

Anne, I hope you're okay....maybe you could ask to see Dr Shephard when you get to ER?

kiwilostie said...

Hope all is ok Anne - nasty. Def go to ER, if youre getting sore.

kiwilostie said...

Go Martyn - pic reminds me of a song - mad dogs and englishmen, go out in the midday sun... ;)

The Kharma Initiative said...

Anne! Get thee to a doctor!

ChrisL said...

Anne, hope all is OK, that must have been a real shock for you.

Ben, Can you not find a way to see the first ep on wed, just this one week until the final drops are over? Then at least you only have 24 hrs to worry about rather than several days.

ChrisL said...

Maven has arrived in HI with other Losties from her flight.

ChrisL said...

And Damon, Carlton etc have just arrived.

Patrick said...

Heads up: New EW has a Lost cover, with a minor spoiler, I guess, right on the front.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, the competition 10 prize winner has been announced.

NEW POST
