What do you say about this poster, I think everyone realizes the Tin Woodsman and Dorothy represent Jack and Meg. One of my favorite posters as most everyone knows there was a paper version and an aluminum version to celebrate the 10th anniversary show. Apparently aluminum is the customary gift for a 10th anniversay.

Edition size: 236 paper
66 aluminum
Poster size: 19x26 paper
20x24 aluminum

some of the rarest posters change hands like they were candy recently
That one looks awesome.

I seem to see so many silvers lately that I forgot how the normal one looks

Not sure if a pic of this has been posted before but there is a second print of the poster on Aluminum. Numbered from 160+ on the back (engraved) The printing is a lot deeper and the colours more vivid than the original. Best of all virtually scratch proof. I own both and although I wouldn't trade the show version for anything, this version does blow it away for appearance... Excuse the pic, my camera sucks.

Could you post a pic of the show version to compare the two?

Direct from Rob. He will be selling with the 2007 WS sets (Don't hold your breath)

Matt, this is the only pic I have on my computer of them together hanging, not great as you can see, but I will take them down and post a better one over the weekend.

Thanks for the pics Jimmy, there does appear to be a marked difference.

I might as well join the aluminum party, here's my show edition.

Found this one. As I say crappy camera and picture doesn't do either print justice, however good comparison on the detail (2nd print on the right)

I think I prefer the red on the show edition. The red on the 2nd print looks dull. Maybe it's just the picture, but it seems to agree with my picture as well. I can see that some subtle details are enhanced on the 2nd printing though.
