Mondo Presents: STAR WARS! Bounty Hunters- Wave 1 By Ken Taylor On Sale Now!

Today we have a very special release in our Lucasfilm Star Wars poster series. We are proud to present Ken Taylor’s Bounty Hunters- Wave 1…

Poster by Ken Taylor. 12″x 36″ screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 425. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. Click HERE to buy.

Both infamous and anonymous at the same time, Bounty Hunters are far more than mercenaries for hire – they’re heirs to a professional legacy – an ancient brotherhood with a glorious history.” -Anonymous

The amount of time it took to read the above line is roughly how long the bounty hunters were on screen in Empire Strikes Back. Think about that for a second; what other characters in cinema history can boast that claim? On the deck of the Executor, Darth Vader tasks six Bounty Hunters to find the Millennium Falcon. As he says this, one Bounty Hunter growls and one says “As you wish” and that’s it. No massive firefight ensues, nor is there an origin given and hardly any of them are ever seen or talked about again! They are merely seen standing, yet they are some of the most popular characters in the entire Star Wars Universe.

For this reason, we chose the Bounty Hunters as our next poster release and decided to give them the royal poster treatment. Instead of doing a traditional large format poster featuring all of them together, we would produce six character posters that could either be displayed as a group or individually.

The posters are on sale now and just to clarify, you get ALL THREE posters in the set. When you make the purchase, you will also get first crack at buying Wave 2 of the Bounty Hunters. When checking out, make sure your contact email is updated as that is the email we will send the information to regarding the Wave 2 advanced purchase. We also just confirmed that Wave 2 will be revealed on G4’s Attack of the Show very soon, so keep a look out.

    @Dave Fett is definitely in the 2nd set, I would have to imagine. There’s 6 bounty hunters in that Empire Strikes Back scene, 6 posters. So that leaves Fett, Dengar and 4-LOM for Part 2. :)

    Shut out… AGAIN. WTF.

    Skipped lunch after losing out on Yoda, site got hung up at checkout, by the time it went through, all gone. Same thing happened to me on “Hoth”, I’m ready to give up on these Mondo releases.

    I lucked out this time, and also did not leave my desk waiting for these to go up!

    Very sad that I missed out on Hoth though. Anyone who got it interested in working out a trade??

    HERE IS THE PROBLEM. I AM A COP I WORK AT NIGHT. I CAME HOME AT 6AM AND FOR 4 HOURS HIT THE RESEND BUTTON KNOWING HOW RARE AND POPULAR YOUR POSTERS ARE. I WAS TRYING TO PURCHASE THE BOUNTY HUNTER SET AND KNEW I WOULD HAVE TO BE DEDICATED. I WAS THRILLED WHEN THE ADD TO CART BUTTON WAS AVAILABLE. I HIT ENTER AND THEN PUSHED PAY BY PAYPAL. I WAS REDIRECTED TO PAYPAL AND ENTERED MY PASSWORD AND CONFIRMED THE PAYMENT. THEN I RECEIVED THE OUT OF STOCK MESSAGE. SURE PUTTING THE ITEM IN YOUR CART AND WALKING AWAY MAY NOT HOLD THE ITEM, BUT SURELY COMMITTING TO PAY SHOULD HAVE. I AM NOT A COMPUTER WIZ BUT IT SEEMS THAT IF I WAS IN A REAL STORE THERE WOULD BE A PROBLEM IF ANOTHER CUSTOMER OR EVEN WORSE A CLERK FROM THE STORE TRIED REMOVING AN ITEM FROM MY CART. IT WOULD BE EVEN WORSE IF THEY REMOVED IT AT THE CHECKOUT STAND WHEN I HAD MY WALLET OUT AND WAS READY TO PAY.

    …CONTINUED FROM ABOVE. I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH HALLMARK. IT WAS SLIGHTLY WORSE THOUGH. THEY ACTUALLY PROCESSED MY PAYMENT AND THEN A WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS CANCELED MY ORDER CLAIMING TO BE OUT OF STOCK. THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY! I WILL NOT BE ATTEMPTING TO PURCHASE ANY MORE OF YOUR PRODUCT UNTIL YOU HAVE FIXED THIS PROBLEM. PLEASE ANNOUNCE THROUGH AINTITCOOLNEWS THAT YOU HAVE SOLVED THESE PROBLEMS AND I WILL BE BACK. I AM NOT THE TYPE TO WHINE ABOUT HOW UNFAIR SOMETHING IS. I HAVE MISSED OUT ON MANY OF YOUR FINE POSTERS (MY DAUGHTER WOULD OF KILLED FOR THE GREMLINS POSTER!) AND UNFORTUNATELY CANNOT AFFORD THE AFTER MARKET PRICES. I PUT THE ITEM IN MY CART AND CHOSE A PAYMENT METHOD AND TOOK THE STEPS TO IMMEDIATELY PROCESS THAT PAYMENT IN ANY LAND THAT MEANS I SHOULD OF RECEIVED THE PRODUCT. I HAD A FEW WORDS WITH PAYPAL ABOUT THE TIME IT TOOK TO PROCESS A PAYPAL PAYMENT MAY HAVE COST ME THE POSTERS. SO AT WHAT POINT HAVE I MADE A PURCHASE? YOU TELL ME.

    I was extremely lucky enough to have brought my laptop computer to work with me (I rarely do since I work in a scene shop filled with sawdust from all types of materials and other dangerous to electronics type of grime and dirt), was able to get onto my jobs wireless (not always easy) and was lucky enough to load the page just as the sale went on!

    Needless to say I’ve bought the set, though I almost wanted to get the set to get first dibs on the next wave of bounty hunter posters with Boba Fett!

    I snagged a set, though I may have to buy set 2 just for Fett (and probably only put upp IG88 Bossk and Fett, because these posters are enormous)

    Bloke with the Caps Lock stuck..

    Hey, many of us have got stuck at the payment stage. Just because you put it in your basket does NOT mean you’ve bought the thing. Otherwise most of your beat would be piss easy at night.. ‘Hey man, I put this 24 pack of beer in my shopping basket, therefore I own it. I ain’t PAID for it, but it’s in my basket..

    It’s not yours til you’ve COMPLETED the payment stage.. Otherwise it’d be the first 250 folks to get on the site, and they could take hours to complete the process, and REEEEEAAAAAALLLLYYY piss folks off..

    Do be honest, I wasn’t crazy about this set. Sure, it’s good looking and all, but it doesn’t make a whole lot of narrative sense to me. Those dude’s were standing still in that shot in ESB. And now they’re all standing against the same background with smoke coming out of their guns? I don’t get it. Don’t mean to be nitpicky (as I could have purchased this set – I seriously considered it and had the opportunity as I refreshed just as they went on sale), but they just don’t work for me. Good looking, yes, but a must have? Nah.

    To answer Mr. Caps Lock –
    ” SO AT WHAT POINT HAVE I MADE A PURCHASE? YOU TELL ME.”

    Um… no one said you have to use paypal, pal.

    Wave #2 pre-order e-mails just went out. As if everyone didn’t know already Dengar, 4-Lom and Boba Fett are confirmed. Sadly, there is no secret 4th poster with Darth Vader being sold with the set.
