Aww, someone bought the OKC one I wanted.

That Seattle one is kick-ass.

Kenneth is lucky

Please tell me what time you got those doodles in Seattle. I waited forever and they

I saw the OKC poster in Vancouver and decided if it was still there in Seattle I would get it. It was and I did.
As for what time the Seattle poster appeared, both the Seattle and Vancouver shows they came out right about 7:30ish. We got there when the gates opened and camped out at the main merch booth until they showed up. The main both is/was the one with the OKC poster.
Thanks everybody…

While I don’t think its shitty, I do agree that all the other ones are way better thus far. BTW, the extra doodle poster never surfaced at the Xcel Energy Center. They must have something against Minnesotans or something

Wow! I was at the wrong booth!! The guy was telling me they were on the way the whole time! Would you mind telling me what the doodles cost? Also I know this is probably a
stupid question, but would you consider selling me one? I could throw in an autographed Seattle poster, and both of the Justin posters autographed plus WAY more money than what you payed for it. I’m just totally crushed I didn’t get one. Happy for you though
bro.

From recent posts on the other tour poster thread, they started out at $450, I believe (unframed) and then increased to $500, then $600, then most recently noted was $900 framed. I am not sure if any of that is gospel, but that’s what I remember reading.

There’s no way in hell I’m paying $900 for a doodled poster. $450 is bad enough…

Of course, they will increase in value, but I have no interest in buying it as an investment.

How much was the OKC in Seattle?

grinchbc

That’s what I would like to know as well Ben. $900 was too steep a price and the frame job was basic. It would’ve had to be redone. A second doodle showed up when the show finished as well, same price. Different show poster, can’t remeber which one though. But it was a similar complex doodle like the OKC one.

I paid 300 for a simple Adam doodle in St Louis! While these NEW doodles are the bees knees, triple the price is not very reasonable!

And we are very happy with our $200 Houston Adam doodle!

Yeah, the OKC was $900 in Vancouver and Seattle. I needed the extra day to rationalize the purchase. The Vancouver and Seattle doodles were $300. They had 3 for each show and the doodles were all very similar. I was able to get my pick of both lots. Prices have really gone up however. I have an Adam “doodle” from the winter 2007 tour. That one was painted like the OKC (although the illustration was smaller then OKC) but that was “only” $250. Now he is “just” drawing with a sharpie and they are $300. Between the time we left… Read more »

…they did come out with another $900 poster for the OKC show. That one had a similar guy like mine but in red and kind of laying at the bottom. Blair posted a pic of the head on the Tool Army site.

I thought the new one he posted was for OKC. Please anyone…grab it for me and I’ll paypal you. =(

man, the san francisco show was bad ass! (and so was bumping into justin chancellor outside the bill graham before the show and getting to say “hey justin!” and “ROCK IT TONIGHT!!!”  his response, was “hey man, how’s it going?”  verbatim. cost me a lot less than these outrageously priced doodles did… but hey, capitalism is evil…blah blah blah… i dont think jello biafra called anyone out in tool on it during his siiiiiick set. hmmm… i’m weighing a free 3 seconds of face time with a member of the least fan-accessible band on the planet versus up to a $900… Read more »

I got a signed Vancouve poster number 53/400 but it is missing the embossment. I know it’s legit because I bought it at the show from the merch booth. Does anyone know anything about or have any thoughts about this?

NOMAD has said that Adam embosses the posters when he gets them. I know this may sound strange, but turn the poster over and look for it. One of our posters was embossed backwards (you could tell b/c the 2010 was backwards) and another poster was barely embossed on the front side and when we turned it over, it was clear as day. If you still don’t find it, he may have missed that one.

Than why do you care about resale value? Or do you have no intention of selling it now that you have realized there is no embossment?

I never had any intension to sell. That was just my first reaction when I saw it was missing the embossment. I really don’t care about the resale value. I’m just happy I got a signed one. Vancouver is my favorite poster from the tour.

Yeah, it is a kick ass poster.

Sometimes the embossing is just really hard to see. Turn over the poster and scan the back. You might not be missing it.

For those interested in buying an unsigned Saskatchewan, Canada poster, there is one being auctioned on eBay:

the embossment is a nice kind of novelty item to have on a poster. Do any other bands use their own seal and stamp on 400 posters a night?

It depended on the venue. It wasn’t until Red Rocks, I think, that they upped the order to 400. Both St. Charles and NOLA only had 250 posters.

I recently discovered this website on Distortion Online, although their most recent update of posters is from 2007:
http://www.blackthenwhite.com/
Also, the classics:
http://www.expressobeans.com/public/search.php?text=tool&class=0
http://gigposters.com/band/662_Tool.html
Considering all of the raw and artistic talent (as well as money) that TOOL has, you would think they would have some better tour posters, in my opinion (discounting the posters from their summer 2010 tour).

BurlyIves – You know all the autographs are signed by the decoys.

P.S. Adam does not because he’s still working on “The Pot” dvd just before the show/s start 😛
