Daniel Danger for the Black Rock 219

A different time for the poster reveal today, however it is a great poster from one of the original DCaaPB artists.

Daniel Danger for The Black Rock

Thanks to Brennan Arceneaux for letting us know about the new poster first via email.

I hope you were quick in getting one of these posters as they sold out in around 2 hours.

Love it!

Hoping for a Lighthouse print. This one is cool, but not worth my wallet pain.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, that's it from me for now until I get back to the hotel room.

The Apple store guy and Mrs Zort are giving me funny looks.

Zort70 said...

Order 127931 by the way

Scoutpost said...

nice one! #127989

Lisa-Maladylis said...

it's like a addiction I look, I try and I buy and then say oh you shouldn't have lol Oh well, you only live once !

illix said...

Reposting because I was literally the last comment before Zort closed the last one:

Dang, that is a sweet poster. Just ordered mine, and all the old nervousness and adrenaline was back...seemingly unwarranted, since no one seems to have yelled "Fire!" in this particular theater yet. The new site is definitely hazardous to my bank account; already picked up the "Smoke" t-shirt. The color scheme is brilliant.

Does it seem to anyone else that they are really responding to the things we complained about/suggested they change during the first poster run? "Not Penny's Boat" is getting plenty of coverage after everyone complained it was missing, there are t-shirts for less money than the prints after the Olly Moss ones did so well, and we finally get a Black Rock print (from DD, no less). We can set up accounts ahead of time and easily check on order status, the runs are slightly larger, and without as much publicity and hype I'm betting these items are mostly going to Losties. Granted, the old rush is gone, but so is all the angst and agony.

tl;dr Bravo to Gallery88/TysonGivens/DCAAPB for actually listening to us and improving.

Masheen said...

Daniel Danger is teh awesome. Jacobs Cabin looks so much better IRL than on the computer screen. I imagine this new print will be no different. Kudos to Dan and the Jensen Clan!

Weinbeeezy said...

Over 200 already!? This is moving quick!

Eugene said...

@ Lisa - the first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem.

LotteryTicket said...

Zort70 please tell me MrsZort got a shot of you updating this blog in the London Apple Store! please, oh please!

order 127814 at 10:24 PST (@JensenClan88 tweet at 10:20 a.m. ish) So given that fact that I was 4 minutes late to the party - historically I should not own this print!

Ben said...

guys, with multiple items on sale, transaction numbers are less than pointless. We won't get any info off them. Got both my confirmation emails. Also, 1:08pm EST I'm guessing, following my theory of 1:08 in different timezones.

Also, it was me that worked out why Danger was dropping like it was hot.

JGZ350 said...

I missed out on the first DD print and couldn't resist this one, Order #128005. This one could be easily displayed in my office, whereas some of the others on the first run could not.
It's been some time since I've posted, however, I lurk on a regular basis. Great job on keeping LOSTARGS alive Zort.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

BTW I already got my Olly Moss shirts today. I bought one for me and one for a friend. It says the Not Penny's tote is the one on back order. Haven't gotten my DS shirt yet though. My friend is going to love this shirt.

Ben said...

I was 127910, meaning this IS shifting quick.

Masheen said...

ah. GoMerch confirmation finally came in. So we are good. Phew

Attorney Greg said...

+1 danger - first i've liked of the new ones.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Hi, my name is Lisa, and I have a problem...... I'm addicted to Lost and will be crying next week...

Scoutpost said...

@illix haha...I was doing stuff around the house and thought I would just check the site. When I saw this one and that it was a DD- my emergency mode kicked in too! I don't think this one will be around for too long.

I figure all of these will sell out. Remember in the first round a few of those prints were available for weeks before they sold out. It wasn't until the big guns started being revealed that everybody went back and bought the less popular ones. Even Locke's Secrets took almost a day to sell out.

Weinbeeezy said...

@Ben... The chances that during the last hour there's other people not buying this print are pretty small.. No?

Andrew said...

@Weinbeezy - how do you know how many are left?

The Kharma Initiative said...

Less than 190 left (not going by order numbers). So more of Danger's Black Rock have sold already than ever sold of Jacob's Cabin (somewhat facetious since only 250 of JC existed to sell).

Cosmically Yours

Ben said...

yeah, transaction nos have some worth for general tracking. This will be gone in an hour or less, I reckon.

Ben said...

Patrick said...

If you go by the order numbers we're posting here, just over 200 have sold. The lowest was around 777 and @scoutpost's was 989. There's someone at EB that is posting more concrete numbers of the sales via some other method. The way we were able to check last week, by entering a quantity of 999 seems to have been disabled to an extent.

Amy Lynn said...

@Lisa, yeah, um, next Monday is going to be depressing.

Ben said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
illix said...

@Scoutpost True, but I suppose time is also a factor here - this is taking place over a span of a week or so, rather than the 15 weeks over the summer. I suspect the word hasn't gone very far yet, especially since it was announced at Lost Live and hasn't really been publicized since (not that one needs to actively publicize anything, the way Losties talk...) The runs are also a bit larger; I think the shirts are in batches of 815 and the posters in batches of 300-500?

Quinn said...

I, Quinn, am also a LOST addict. Just know that we all will be going through the stages of loss next week

Insert Funny Video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_Z3lmidmrY

(Plus, i think that some of the anger over last week's ep had to do a little bit with the stages of loss...)

Masheen said...

@Ben OMFG

branDRONE said...

order #127773

Ben said...

yeah... my fault. It was a mock up - that's not the image. It was a fake based off a photo off the black rock. Ignore me.

hobbit said...

Got one, and wife liked it so much she ordered one for her office too. Hope us taking turns through the same account doesn't mess anything up.

We've never had that happen before. We could actually both order one, one after the other, and get confirmation that we both made it. That's pretty amazing, considering last fall I felt like I had to fight to even progress from order page to order page once.

As someone said above: it's so much smoother this time. GREAT job Tyson/Givens/DCAAPB people!

Ray said...

So this doesn't actually glow in the dark with spirits? That would have been even more awesome.

capostar said...

dodged another purchase, yes!

The Kharma Initiative said...

Love the painted look to the sky, and those shades of blue.

Jacob's Cabin was not described as glow-in-the-dark, though it does (unusual for Daniel Danger). This may as well.

There is only 120 left in stock, please change your quantity for item #2879.

Andrew said...

Someone please tell me how you're checking how much stock is left! I must know :P

Zort70 said...

Sorry Lotto no picture.

Settling down for some food now.

Weinbeeezy said...

Kharma tell us!!! How are you figuring it out!?

illix said...

@Weinbeeezy, Andrew - I think if you enter an absurdly high purchase quantity such as 999, the site sends back an error message saying "There are only X left in stock; please choose a different quantity."

Lisa-Maladylis said...

BTW Weinbeeezy I got the mail today, it's just great !! Thanks !!

ioioos said...

Holy mother of Jacob!!!!!!!

Just decided to ready my screen for later and its up....and I love it! This is my island, mystery ad Richard print all in one, and a DD to boot!

Thank god I looked early. I'm going to order an extra one in case any of us get caught on the hop and miss it.

Roswell said...

59 left...

Callum said...

How the crap are you guys still checking how many are left? :S :O

Zachary said...

just jumped on this one. daniel danger is one of my favorite artists and i missed out on The Cabin last time around. any reason why these aren't selling out as quickly?

Martyn said...

I can honestly say that I love this print more than Jacob's Cabin. Shhhh, nobody tell my gf that I bought this, she will kill me. To think, if this came out tomorrow, I wouldn't have enough money. Guess i'm not seeing Gorillaz now.

ioioos said...

@The Kharma Initiative

DD doing glow in the dark! Cool.

Scoutpost said...

@Zachary- there are more prints this time around than last time. And also, I don't think word is out to everyone yet...though I have a feeling our age of innocence ended with this one.

Andrew said...

There's nowhere to put in quantity though. That's what I want to figure out how to do haha

Ray said...

@Roswell

How are you checking the quantity?

The Kharma Initiative said...

22 left.

ioioos said...

Did ChrisL get one?

Ray said...

@ioioos

Shoot. I don't know. Did anyone get an extra?

Ray said...

I'm actually out right now and don't have my wallet - someone please score one for ChrisL!!!!!

Rorschach said...

I picked the Danger one up as well as Tong's Hurley print at the show Thursday. I kind of hope I don't like any of the rest of this series (not likely). My bank account is not happy that there is another print series.

Patmc said...

ChrisL is covered... I just heard from him via email...

The Kharma Initiative said...

Get em now!

4 left.

Jim MacLeod said...

Just picked mine up. Good thing I have the LOSTARGS twitter feed sending updates to my phone.

illix said...

Soooooold!

Amy Lynn said...

SOLD OUT

ChrisL said...

ChrisL missed the drop but thanks to the excellent friends here... I am secure! Thanks for thinking of me ioioos. I love this print.

ioioos said...

they've all gone!

Patmc said...

Sold out!

ChrisL said...

And Ray... thanks.

ioioos said...

ChrisL

Does that mean you are ok and got one? I figured you'd like this one.

Scoutpost said...

Not surprised! The name (not to mention the work) of Daniel Danger will move a print!

Koobeton said...

500 sold in 1 hour and 40 minutes...I'm happy to see that people are buying them but I really don't want it to become like it did last time where it was merely luck if you got one or not

ChrisL said...

Wow! so the first sell-out... how many to flippers? We'll see on ebay in about... 5 minutes.

ChrisL said...

Ioioos... I am good. This is a great crowd here. I was driving when it dropped and my iPhone went mad. Pulled over to read that my back was covered. I'm so proud to be friends with you guys!

JGZ350 said...

@The Kharma Initiative

How were you able to modify the quanity to verify inventory?

Did you modify the element "onclick="addProduct2('2879);" ?

How many are left for Desmond and Not Pennys Boat?

JGZ350 at gmail dot com

Tynett said...

@ray it was great hanging with you...I have pix, I'll be linking to them via picasa does that work?

Amy Lynn said...

If anyone needs coverage tomorrow through Friday, let me know.

mistersh0w said...

Snap! My confirmation came in at 11:50am PST, It allowed me to go through to checkout, and when I went back afterward it hadn't "SOLD OUT" yet.. My order# is 128213.

I'm nervous!!!!

Callum said...

Back in stock?

Patmc said...

What the heck? I just went back to the purchase page, and hit refresh... and it doesn't show sold out any more...

JGZ350 said...

@mistersh0w

Try again, add to cart button is back!

Masheen said...

strange. the sold out disappeared so I can put the print back into my cart. guess I have to empty my cache

Amanda said...

there is almost no way that this wont go exactly how it did months ago... this one will no doubt get the word out and it will be sheer luck to snag one of these again, but just be glad you were on board before the curve and you got one.

MiddayShadows said...

Hi all - okay, so glad I didn't miss this !! Especially considering

this!

If you scroll to halfway down the page, you'll see a post I made way back in October, during the first run... look familiar?! :)


For me, this is one of the very coolest things to happen, in either DCaaPB run, ever, as it appears someone heard my request...

I understand this print might not be everyone's cup of tea, and that's cool, everyone is entitled to their tastes/ sensibilities. But from past experience I know this print will be awwsome in person. DD's has used a similar approach for sky, for example (in his "...archer print," and it looks amazing in person.

I'm sure it will sell out in a few minutes as word continues to break, so congrats to all who scored one!

Just Thinking said...

Yipes- I happened to check early too- and at work and forgot my new sign in password- so had to have a new one emailed. I ordered awhile ago-so hope no oversell- boy- glad I didn't wait till I got home!

What does it say on the bottom?

Masheen said...

@MiddaysShadows TONS of props man!

mistersh0w said...

@JGZ350 - I got my 2 emails, but I was concerned because basically RIGHT AFTER my emails came in, it said "SOLD OUT" on the page...

Am I golden??

ioioos said...

@The Karma Initiative

I assume multiple purchases are OK? I've picked up an extra for a fans 40th Birthday present.

The small print doesn't mention a problem with multiple orders.

JGZ350 said...

very nice @mistersh0w.
Maybe they are selling the other 50 of the 550.

Scoutpost said...

@mistersh0w- I think if you have 2 emails you're good

Ray said...

@Tynett

Hey, fun hanging with you as well! Sure, Picassa works fine - how do I get to your page? You've got my email in case you want to send it there. Thanks!

ChrisL said...

Midday... you are the man!

andalone said...

Site is showing as copies still available now, maybe if only a few....

The Kharma Initiative said...

3 remaining again, either due to cancellations or they added a few they were holding back.

Scoutpost said...

@MiddayShadows- nice call! guess someone WAS listening. in that case, can you put in a request for a nice MIB one?

Koobeton said...

There is one on eBay but its only listed at $50. At least who ever is selling it isn't putting a buy it now for $500

Ray said...

@Kharma - Being a broken record here (sorry!), but how are you checking that?

Weinbeeezy said...

@Lisa ... I hope I get my coozy today! Glad you enjoyed it!

Callum said...

Sold out again!

Lisa-Maladylis said...

@Weinbeeezy it says on line your getting it today so hopefully you will. Hope you like it. I need to make more.

mistersh0w said...

Sorry to be off-topic a bit, but a co-worker's relative has received confirmation for their tix to the Jimmy Kimmel LOST special taping!!!

Start checking your emails folks, it's happening... For those who requested...

The Kharma Initiative said...

Sorry Ray, hadn't been reading posts. Click on my profile and email me.

ioioos, don't know if multiples are OK.

mistersh0w, glad to see you snuck one in!

Just Thinking, it says "...today is the first time I've ever come back."

Richard is carrying another satchel just like the figure in Jacob's Cabin. Makes me re-think the idea that it's Ben or Locke in JC. May be Richard, as he had reason to visit the Cabin as well!

YAY for ChrisL.

Cosmically Yours

Martyn said...

Poster is gone off of the home page.

MiddayShadows said...

@ ChrisL, Masheen and Scoutpost...Thanks! :) I'm so very stoked..

Scoutpost, consider your request submitted :)

The Kharma Initiative said...

Imagine if they released another one at 1:08 PST today!

No reason they'd do it, but...

Tynett said...

Kinda stinks that they took the whole pic off, now those that missed won't even know what they missed...

Lisa-Maladylis said...

how weird ! Maybe they decided that the Jacob print was going to be one of the 8 and they started too soon. lol

brightgreenpupil said...

Is it possible that it was taken down because it was accidentally released too early?

Joe Stas said...

Wow - I just found this site! Amazing that I didn't know it existed all this time. :)

I've bought this print and a few of the others from the site. I'm really pleased as I had to pay over the odds on ebay for some of the last collection.

At least I am poor now for good reason!

Mark Englert said...

#128250 Love it... way more than Jacob's Cabin!

Got my confirmation emails, hope it's not oversold!

Ben said...

from other sites - different credit cards work, otherwise multiple orders are getting refunded. I imagine this is why the Danger re-appeared for a little bit, as initial flip-hopeful purchasers hit multiples.

Scoutpost said...

I wonder if the disappearance was a mistake...there were weird things happening the last round too. hmmm....

@MiddayShadows- thanks, will wait anxiously for MIB print...;)

ChrisL said...

@Joe Stas... welcome!

Lisa-Maladylis said...

there are three on ebay- 76, 175 and 300 this time I guess the flippers got a chance to sell them. pisses me off that they would do that. two of them are the same ol' flippers that we saw last time.

Ben said...

I think a Todd Slater Flocke, with Smoke in the eyes, would be amazing.

I'd happily see Carlos Ramos do something.

I'd love Eric Tan to have another crack.

I'm guessing Olly Moss will have one in there too. Probably the last drop.

Ben said...

Lisa - Danger has a habit of e-stalking his flippers and blacklisting them in his own sales, so I wouldn't feel too bad. They might find someone stupid/desperate enough, but they probably won't get another...

ChrisL said...

I'd be shocked not to see an Olly. I'm with you on Tan too Ben.

Weinbeeezy said...

ANYBODY GET KIMMEL TICKETS???

Just Thinking said...

Thanks KI- and thanks guys for putting this up- especially Zort- one look at Args front page and I was off! I got the emails and it seems to have come back up after- so I hope it's OK.

Patmc said...

I still had my browser up to the Black Rock purchase page, and hit refresh... and it took me to the GoMerch main site. Weird stuff going on there right now...

ObFuSc8 said...

Hey ARGers.

I had no cell reception where I was and couldn't get to a computer so missed the Danger today. Crushed. Anyone one who picked up an extra or doesn't want theirs, let me know please. Email is in my profile.

ioioos said...

I phoned them to check. I ordered an extra for a friends 40th and a third in case ChrisL didn't have one.

I got confirmation emails for all three, and they are all booked on the same credit card.

I hope they don't cancel them thinking I'm a flipper! The site doesn't say one per customer.

On the phone, they just said it had oversold and some people would be have there orders cancelled. They didn't say multiple purchases were a problem.

I hope they don't change their minds.

Martyn said...

Dinner eaten so can sit down and concentrate fully on listening/reading you guys.

Can't believe it's sold out, it is the best of the series so far though.

@Midday...

That is an awesome prediction there my friend! Thank you!

@Kharma...

I too am intrigued as to how you check the stock level. Is it cool if I shoot you an e-mail too?

Now all my poster buying is over and done with, it'll feel nice to sit back and just enjoy the new art that get's released.

Definitely intrigued by the inevitable, John Locke is the Smoke Monster poster and who covers that! Could make or break an artist. Well, amongst LOST fans anyway.

Scoutpost said...

uh oh. Word is out. Get ready to get in hyper mode.

ChrisL said...

ioioos... I didn't realize you picked one up for me... too cool man. I hope they don't cancel. I see ObFuSc8 is looking for one ;-)

Koobeton said...

Not only is it a bummer that word is out, but its even worse than MTV announced it...

Weinbeeezy said...

We should all thank Jensen for releasing Dangers print before this thing takes off again! We can all breathe a little easier knowing we have one of the good ones

Sayid'sgirl said...

Wow that one is really hard to resist. But I will :)

Eugene said...

Scoutpost - I just saw that myself and had the same thought.

ioioos said...

Hopefully, as long as my orders don't get bumped (the last one I did went through after the sold out notice) then I'll have a spare for a fellow arger.

Ray said...

You can still view the Black Rock page by itself (not sure if anyone else posted this):

http://damoncarltonandapolarbear.com/xrx/body.php?module=product_details&pid=2879&id=172

They probably just took down the link to it temporarily as they sort through the ones they oversold.

maven said...

I see you've succumbed Scoutpost!

Scoutpost said...

@Eugene and Koobeton- I know. I'm glad I got the Danger and that they released it before the word went far and wide, but now I worry that an awesome Olly or Tan, Stout,etc. will come out and I'll miss it! stress....

Ray said...

Honestly, I don't think MTV's article is going to have THAT much of an impact - everyone who was interested in this already knew about the last poster series, and the ones who care probably already know by now that there are new prints.

ioioos said...

@Weinbeeezy

Too true. At least we all got a really good one! when the dust settles I think this one will give Crash and Lockes secret a run for their money in the cherish stakes.

I wonder if the 4 repeat artists (plus Kevin Tong) will match the top 5 from our old poll?

Scoutpost said...

@Ray- I hope so. I figure plenty of people already know about it...so maybe it won't make a difference.

Patmc said...

My nightmare is that they'll release a new Tan as the last one...

After all I went through to get "The Crash"... and with how much I love that one... I would be devastated to miss out on another LOST related print from him!

Ray said...

The Black Rock is back on the site now.

scottbphilp said...

Nooooooooooo the different time meant I slept right through it! Oh man changing times with no warning is not cool.

Jason said...

Hey guys. How many hours/minutes has it been since the poster was released? Today I woke up early to see the poster as soon as it was released however I was a bit late.

ioioos said...

@ PATMC

I have a bad feeling that Tan will do the last one. After all, He got the first scene last time around and then topped the polls.

Whats the bet he gets the last scene of the finale this time around?

mungonna said...

Its a good thing that I listened to my inner voice around 10;30 this morning when it screamed at me.." Get Your Butt Over To Ty/Giv Since You Haven't Looked At It All Morning"..Busy morning at work you know..So I place the order nonchalantly,,mozey over to here,,and within 5 minutes you all are announcing that its sold out..Thank you Inner Voice. Really won't kno until I get home and see email from Ty/GoMErch.

Danger does like his dark moonlit scenes . pretty neat imho.

EWL
MEL

Rorschach said...

Glad I pulled the trigger on this before it sold out. I thought about it for at least 20 minutes before deciding I would rather regret spending 60 bucks than seeing it in person and really being disappointed I didn't try and get one.

CTKP said...

Same here ScottB. Hello ebay. again.

The Kharma Initiative said...

MEL, you can log back in to DCPB and check your order status. Doesn't guarantee anything, but gives you an idea. I've seen it go from Authorized to Pre-Ordered on earlier orders. Both good statuses.

Martyn, weinbeezy, JGZ350 - bring it! Email me, I will try to reply later today.

This Danger is sooo good - like a mix between his Ghost Ship and brushed I came to know an Archer. Really want to see how the sky comes out in a screenprint. That's fancy printing I'd think.

High hopes for the remaining 6!

Cosmically Yours

Patmc said...

Danger print is back on the home page... but has a "Sold Out" hash across it...

mtutick said...

For those that check stock, can you give an update on the Desmond print? I'm still undecided on it, and I'd like to know approximately how much more time I have to make a decision :)

Weinbeeezy said...

@Kharma.. You have been emailed!

dylansdad said...

Well, this is what happens when I step away from the computer.

Nuts...

Tim said...

One sold for Buy It Now on ebay for $150 already

Ray said...

@kharma

sent you an earlier email as well

Martyn said...

Erm, what Weinbeeezy said!

I like how this posters are providing a beautiful distraction from the realisation of what's happening this week. Wait, what is happening this week? Oh yeah, more posters! Wahooooo!

Will said...

I'm in the same boat dylansdad. Bummed, because it's a beautiful poster.

JGZ350 said...

@Kharma
I've emailed you as well.

If Moss, Tan or Stout drops in these last 5 prints, it's going to be de ja vue all over again.

The smart money is on the last print being by Moss.

Patmc said...

BTW... has anyone received their black LOST memorial wristbands yet? I ordered mine on the day they went up for sale, but still haven't received it yet. I'm hoping it wasn't LOST or something... ;-) It would be nice to have it for my LOST Finale weekend...

Just curious...

Patrick said...

Two others sold on the bay for $107 and $175.

Will said...

$107 would be pretty tempting. But with shipping, that is the cost of two posters. I think I might keep trying my luck on the rest of them.

Anne said...

Well I hesitated for a while, but I got it. Order #127798. Only the second time I've gotten THROUGH on one of these, and last time was canceled (Ben). Daniel Danger is my favorite of the artists so . . . well, we'll see if this order is really really for real. lol.

Personally think the pace will now pick up quickly, even if it's partly from flippers . . .

@Patmc waiting on my wristband too, would love to have it for the weekend.

Ray said...

So....this one dropped around 1:15 EST. You can argue that it was supposed to be about 1:08. I'm going to start adding jensen's tweets to go directly to my phone as a text, since he's tweeted about each drop.

mungonna said...

KI..yes,,I just finally got to it .End of shift. So..All of my orders are " preorder" status,,including Black Rock by Moonlite. Very good..BR #128206.My stomach is starting to twinge.

EWL
MEL

maven said...

@PatMC: The wristband people posted that there was a mix-up (something about quality control at the factory) and there might be a slight delay in the first batch ordered (which I was in). They cannot guarantee now that they will be in by finale date.

Tim said...

Any guesses as to when it will drop tomorrow? Since he did the first 2 at 1:08 Pacific, maybe tomorrow's will still be 1:08 Eastern?

Zort70 said...

All my orders, including t-Shirts are also pre-orders, so I'm guessing things are ok, fingers crossed.

Perhaps they will go round the world in time zones, will it be UK 1:08pm BST tomorrow ?

The Kharma Initiative said...

Just bought Andrew Hawryluk's Faraday screenprint!

He just put it on sale in honor of the end of Lost - a really great deal right now. I've been wanting this since he posted his earliest version for our review, and now is a great time to get one! Also happy to support another Lost fan creative:

Whatever Happened, Happened

4-colors, signed and numbered, limited edition, on black paper.

mr natronbomb: why are artists still being commissioned to do LOST posters? because the first 10,000 sold out.
figured that was obvious.
thanks all. i like boats. this was fun.

ObFuSc8 said...

How long did these take to sell out today? Just trying to plan how close I'm gonna have to be to a computer for the rest of these. Did anyone get through on their cell phone?

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I already got my olly moss shirts today. It does say the tote bag is still back ordered.

Ray said...

My Danger print says "Preorder" but I ordered a shirt for my dad and it says Queued. Probably just means that the shirt hasn't been printed yet.

Zort70 said...

Completely off topic, but art related - I'm in London at the moment and everywhere you go there are large elephant models.

They are all decorated by different artists and are really fun to see around the place.

Go to This web site to see the elephants.

This is apicture I took earlier today of one of them - http://twitpic.com/1okl9v

Do you reckon that they print off 300 of the prints and then the rest is print to order? Would safe the bigger edition backfiring on them with only two sold of a poster.

As for the clothing, I'm guessing they're all being made and some that are sent are remains from lost live.

Gorgeous print. I'm not surprised it sold out this quickly.
I got my Smokey shirt today. Super impressed w/Go Merch since I'm in Florida and things usually take forever to get here.

Ob, the Black Rock sold out by 2PM CST. I think they went up a bit before 12:30PM CST.

@Zort...

Love the caption to your twitpic. Was expecting one of the meerkats to be in a velet smokers jacket. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed.

The Kharma Initiative said...

Daniel Danger is in the EST, and this went on sale around 1:08 EST.

Can anyone correlate the two earlier prints to the artists being located in PST?

ioioos said...

@Martyn

Once its set up, the printing is the cheap part of it, so I imagine they will be done in one run. They usually know what volumes are likely to shift.

So annoyed - managed to get the main screen on my iPhone but it wouldn't let me add to cart :( BLOODY PHONE!

If anyone had one extra, has a labotomy and changes their mind etc please email me:

Zort70 said...

Martyn, yes I'm glad at least one person gets what I'm talking about :-)

The Kharma Initiative said...

Great quote from Daniel Danger, Martyn. Thanks!

I'll reply to you and the rest later today hopefully.

Cosmically Yours

For anyone that hasn't bought the Desmond print, this is from Jeff Boyes website about the print:

"There are a few hidden things in there that you can't really see on the preview. I guess you'll find them out when you get it in the mail!"

islandwales said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

just got home, was thinking "i hope i am as uniterested in todays print as I was the first 2"

class print. class title. class artist. class subject....PURE CLASS
i feel ill. :(

in a word....

DEVASTATED.

Jason said...

Missed this one by a couple hours, I guess -- too busy at work.

Pity, because it's REALLY nice. Congrats to those of you who got it...

dylansdad said...

I'm right there with you--devastation levels are high at the moment. I'm busy at work this morning and check in at the usual time only to find out that it's NOT the usual time and I had already missed out on the companion to "Jacob's Cabin."

Weinbeeezy said...

It's only been two drops and the people that missed it are making it seem like they've dropped prints at one o clock for a week. True fans would have checked this morning and not waited till their "comfortable" times... Sorry but enough sobbing on here

Ray said...

BTW, DD posted this on facebook. I think he's misinformed about the sellout time tho ;)

Daniel Danger obviously, i had to stay secret secretive about it, but i did a second print for ABC's LOST, which apparently sold out 500 copies in 10 minutes earlier today. had i known in the least bit they were going up, i would have motioned some of you towards it, but i didnt! enjoy it! as before, keep your eye out when the promotion is over. http://www.damoncarltonandapolarbear.com

Davide said...

Here i am. I was SO LUCKY.
I found that the site was being updated somehow, so i stayed home. I had to go out with a friend, but he was late... and i saw the poster.
Thought about it for at least one minute, and then... Bought. (#127.763)

I have to make space for this, i may have to sell my Stout's LOST to earn some space in my room :D

Just Thinking said...

Oh- so that means he has the extra prints to sell again?

No oversell email yet- this looks even richer to me on second viewing- sure hope I still have it.

You're right WB- we should have checked earlier- but Mondays get busy- have to actually do some work usually-stupid work!

xDR JON3Sx said...

@Weinbeeezy

i think its a little unfair to say because people missed it theyre not 'true fans'. i m certainly a TRUE fan, and check these sites like clockwork, but there are times when people CANT check them. or have work, and i just happened to miss it by an hour. seeing as the last two were dropped at 108, it only seemed likely the others would too.

granted not getting it is just the way the dice rolls. i m not too butt hurt over it. i LOVE the print, and wish i could have got it. but i definitely feel for those who went hte same route and thought it would be at the same time...

just have a little compassion for those who wanted the print and didnt get it.

Weinbeeezy said...

@Dr.Jones... I'm just saying, with all the tricks played before, It shouldn't be a suprise that it wasn't at 108 today... That would be to easy and make it not fun... And it was on sale for two hours... So still a big gap

I'm assuming from here on out we will have less time each time

Amy Lynn said...

@Weinbeeezy, thanks for the info about the Des print! Now I'm even more excited.

Regarding the drop time: It actually DID drop at 108, just on the other coast. I think Jensen was a few minutes late. I was able to load the picture at 1:10 EST. Fairly predictable time.

That being said, if there's anything we learned from the first round, it's that NOTHING is predictable, completely, and everything takes a little longer than you might think. The edition size on this is HUGE, compared to the first run. There's been plenty of time to be wrong about the time and still get a poster. Get a poster buddy if you need to!

xDR JON3Sx said...

@weinbeezy i wasn't trying to be a dick or anything, i m just saying, i can see why people might be upset if they didnt get a print.

i can understand people missing the drop, even if it is still a big run, and missing the time, if a print sells out within 2hours, its perfectly reasonable to assume someone might miss it due to obligations...

i think that the amount of people complaining is very small, and i only saw a few, it didnt feel excessive at all.

most of us have been there before, and been bummed about it...

just sayin. not trying to be rude or anything.
just trying to respect both sides of the fence.

True Lost Fans would have heard DD's Black Rock calling from beyond Hurleys blow up and fires.." come buy me.. come buy me..thru the ethereal of flash back,,forward and sideways the faint whisper could of been heard by the way of the donkey wheel conduit of all space and time ...such a deal! such a deal!..Faradays work of genius is not your answer, for it forgot the most important variable,,YOU..and the HOPE of F5..This is your destiny!!! Your Fate!! F5 for EVER!! F5 FOREVER!!!

Now that i've had some time to look at this print closely..I see a small figure in the lower left and of course am even more taken by the detailed work..Its the Cabin's partner..but I agree..I like this one more than the Cabin..will say more when I see it IRL..look at that..ole fart says IRL..Anyway..I too am glad this one wasn't in the 1st run..a larger edition means more will get to enjoy it..and that seems appropo to me...okay..now to clean all the dried blood off of my f5 key..

LotteryTicket said...

MEL, I feared something terrible had happened to you early today when you posted "pretty neat IMHO"

So, my inner whisper said I should come back here now and see if you had flashed forward to give some insight. Looking forward to your IRL POV.

Tomorrows teefury shirt is epic! Check it out at 9 pm!

Mark Englert said...

@Just Thinking It's my understanding that the artists get 50 prints from their run as payment. And it's not bad, if DD sells 50 of those at $250 each, it's not a bad payday.

Well, I haven't gotten any emails or notification that my order was anything but confirmed. I barely got mine in, once I went back to the page, the DD print was gone and then replaced with the SOLD OUT graphic.

I luckily woke up an after hour going to bed to use the loo and just happened to groggily check DC&APB in the nick of time, whew.

These random drops are not much fun, and as predicted, are simultaneously more and less fair to fans trying to score a print.

Amy Lynn said...

Where do you guys see the Teefury shirt?

Mark Englert said...

I'm down for that Teefury shirt for sure!

Hey Gang,

Unfortunately I missed the DD drop today. I did however get a chance to see a sneak peek of one of the upcoming prints :-)

It is by one of our favorite artists....and I think everyone will LOVE it. It will definitely sell out in under an hour.

Can't wait for tomorrow.
