Hi Everyone,

Four new posters were released today: Communicore, Horizons, Imagination, and Universe of Energy.

For those of you that have been collecting the limited edition, serigraph on Stardream silver metallic archival paper posters, are you aware of the release dates and which posters have yet to be released? I have compiled a list below and would welcome any corrections or updates.

Thanks,
Jim

You're missing a few:
00 - SSE D23 "The 21st century begins October 1st, 1982"
01 - SSE D23 "On the brink of a new age October 1st, 2019"

I've been tracking them for a while now.

Thanks @trainplane3 . Do you know if they have already been released via ShopDisney or an Epcot marketplace? I had thought that "On the brink of a new age October 1st, 2019" was still TBA.

They were D23 specials, that's how I got the tube number. Actually here's the numbers I was able to find so far between research and owning a few:
00 - SSE D23 "The 21st century begins October 1st, 1982"
01 - SSE D23 "On the brink of a new age October 1st, 2019"
Released in park at the same time (then online):
02 - SSE (without "Our Shared Story" title)
03 - Mission: Space
Released in park at the same time (then online?):
04 - GotG: Cosmic Rewind
05 - Space 220
Online only:
06 - The Living Seas
10 - France
14 - Canada
16 - Japan

So, the first two were D23 releases?

Also:
15 - Germany

When they arrive, I can provide the numbers for Communicore and Universe of Energy.

Also, the edition sizes were 100 up until number 9, then 10 on wards went to 200. So at least there's that.
Various info:
- There's roughly a two to three week ship time as well.
- They also will pack them together if ordering multiple. I bought Canada and Japan, they came in a single tube with two stickers on the outside instead of separate tubes.

This makes me think they don't print until all the orders are in. Curious to see if they'll pack three to a tube this time.
Still can't believe these all sold out before 8AM this morning. :cry:

@trainplane3 I'll trade you my Commnicore for your Horizons :joyfull:
With how badly people want it, I'm sitting on a small fortune 🤣 I'd never do that to the fan base though. Sadly (to some), it's staying with me.

Imagination was the first to sell out today, followed by Horizons, Universe of Energy, and Communicore.

In May and June, at least one poster was still available until noon. Last month, it was Germany. To date, Imagination, unsurprisingly, seems to have been the quickest to sell out, despite the doubling of edition size.

200 is still such a limited run. I wish these weren’t limited and they just took orders like everything else so we can all enjoy these awesome posters.

It is my hope that they continue to be offered through ShopDisney because my favorite has yet to be released. If sales transition back to an Epcot Marketplace, I doubt that I will be able to purchase any more. Fingers crossed for another for Future World releases in August!

I just put a reminder on my calendar for the first Monday in August. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll be releasing one I want!

Next round arrived, numbered as:
18 - Communicore
19 - Imagination
20 - Horizons
21 - UoE

My two posters arrived today, 18 - Communicore and 21 - Universe of Energy.

I continue to receive high numbers, at the end of the edition.

Although it might seem silly, I have been hoping for an "82" for one of the original attractions.

Waiting for UPS to arrive with my Communicore poster. Wasn't able to get the others but I have my eye on eBay. 👍

Since I didn't get Imagination, UoE is easily my favorite. It's very bright in person. My 3 were all the same number too. They didn't do that last month with my Japan and Canada orders.
Some stupid little thing I noticed, they keep using different sized tubes. Same circumference, different height:

Ha! I had noticed the same height differences with my poster tubes.

The first shipment, for me, with The Living Seas, was the tallest. Last month, with Germany, it was the shortest. When repacking the tube to put the poster away, the additional height is helpful for closing the top without crushing the protective paper.

Also, you are right, the online photos do not capture how vibrant the posters actually are in person. The yellows and oranges used in the Germany poster, for example, appear dull online, but pop in person.

So what's the distribution plan for these. I've missed out on all of them and I'm not sure how or when they're available.
