    I just picked up a JD's Revenge at Monster Mania this past weekend. That's about my only recent new one.

    Thanks. I usually go all out the first week or two when I first get into something, and then slow down. I'm looking at a couple more, but then I think I will chill out, and wait until I can afford the big boys like Halloween, Friday the 13th, or original Star Was posters. It seems like those pretty much start at $100, although I think I saw a Friday the 13th go for $60 the other day. Oh, and I want a Monster Squad original as well!

    My girl does professional framing so they all have totally awesome frames too. Zombie is in a bleached wormwood frame, TCM is in a distressed "barn-type" wood frame, etc.

    Got a pretty cool original last week:
    Fall Break

    This is what The Mutilator was originally called before it's release (as if some of you didn't already know that). A very limited amount of these were printed. Pretty much straight from Buddy Cooper himself and for free :D

    Mausoleum original one-sheet. Not a huge fan of the movie, but I love the artwork :)

    Me, too. I love it. I bought a MAUSOLEUM one sheet on Ebay back in '98 (along with NIGHTMARE since my previous one was tattered and separating at the folds) and was shocked when they arrived in mint, condition. The same seller sold me a THE THING ('82) one sheet and THE FOG (Jamie Lee art) for only $10 each and they, too, were in mint condition. *sigh* I wonder if you can still buy those posters for such a cheap price today?
    I remember seeing the "green lettering" DAWN OF THE DEAD sell for $80 back in '99. Those days are over, I know ;)

    So, I have the Deep Red Slovenian poster. It's like the one below but in shitty condition.

    [​IMG]

    This is pretty much my first poster, so my question to you folks is what is the best way of preserving it? It's already kind of beaten. Cheap Ikea frames - mounting?

    I think it's a 18" X 26" ...which is kind of a weird size.
