    Anyone know what a fair price would be for this Shockwave lithograph? It's from 2002, I think.

    I've seen the Ultra Magnus one from that series go for around 15 bucks.

    Ebay:
    Being a print, aside from fresh out the gate price, it's completely buyer driven.
    Also being on the art side of things you need more info.

    Is it signed?
    Numbered/limited?
    size (assume it's 11x17)
    Is it actually a litho or a poster or cardstock offset print?
    condition (yellowing, dog earred, marks, dings in the paper, type of paper).

    Doing a quick look up, the average price is 20 dollars USD matted for unsigned and not limited or not showing a limited number.

    Again, though, it is based on the buyer and how badly they want it. It is Shockwave after all and google shopping? It's your friend :)

    It was limited to 1000 pieces, 100 being signed. (Mine is unsigned, though.) It's an actual litho. It's in great condition aside from being disposed to "roll", having been stored in cardboard tube for a number of years. But that did protect it from sun, etc. The size is 18" x 24".

    It's bigger than the one in the eBay link, Fishdirt . . . I wonder if they later reissued the piece at a smaller size?

    According to the script the one on ebay was an asian release (japan) so it's not a real re-release but a seperate release.

    If you are selling it I do agree, wait until after the movie ie released. Start an auction at 99 cents (making sure to advertise and promote the heck out of it) and then let it sell itself.
