Lost University - New Man In Charge 50

After all the fall out from the final episode it seems odd writing about a new event in the LOST world, but here we are.

Earlier today Ray told us that the LOST University website was updated with several new news articles, however shortly after they were posted they disappeared again.

Update - after about an hour the news articles reappeared



If the news reappears, or if there is any other Lost University news we will let you know.

Limbofunk, yes definitely a blu-ray set available.

Ray said...

@Amy Lynn

I would assume both ways. But I'm obviously not certain.

Zort70 said...

I'm fiarly sure the site says somewhere it wil be on the sixth season discs for both the season on it's own and the complete set.

We will have to check though.

Martyn said...

Glad to see it's moved away form the epic 500 post.

Looking forward the Maters class. No idea what on earth it will entail. MAybe it's purpose is to answer everything we wanted answered maybe?

Also, Amy Lynn, that Under The Sea song is perfect!

JPL said...

@work... this just popped up. More good news on shipping? :)

Amy Lynn said...

@Martyn, thanks!

Zort70 said...

Maybe we could all record a version of us singing it !

Everyone sing it in there best voice send a MP3 through and I can use the best bits as a group sing along :-)

Zort70 said...

Most of the LU news articles are back, but not the one that is in the screenshot on the main page.

Zort70 said...

Now it is, they must be updating on the fly.

Martyn said...

@Zort...

Are you serious? Because I'd love to hear that. AND I would record my rendition too, lol.

Zort70 said...

I'd be happy to try, not sure how good I would do though.

Black Swan said...

Hello, LostArgers. I've been mostly at TLC this year and I didn't do last summers viral poster thing, but THIS seems really interesting! I hope they find a way for those in foreign countries and even those without blu-ray to participate in this. I also hope I can finish my first degree (LOL, I ended up an LU drop-out).

Amy Lynne, LOVE LOVE LOVE your song lyrics!

Zort70 said...

Hi Black Swan, you may need to do some resit exams as one of the new courses requires season 5 graduation

theotherben said...

The Lost University Lamppost posts are back up!

Ray said...

What happened last time when things mysteriously disappeared and reappeared? That's right. NEW PRINT DROP AT LOST U!

Black Swan said...

Thanks, Zort (btw, how've you been? LOL, I know you've been busy here)

I'm feeling a bit of shame now being an LU drop-out :P

Lisa-Maladylis said...

here, Had to catch up on the last posts I miss while I was out and about. Neat, can't wait to start school again lol

andalone said...

I just wanted to say that GoMerch is really on game with getting prints out quickly. The print I ordered 5/25/10 - Lost Live Jack - was delivered today! #295/300. It looks like Jack is very close to being sellout based on print number.

John W said...

Possible story boards for the Hurley/Ben epilogue? ;)

comixguru said...

@John W - that was awesome! :) very cute.

Ray said...

Anyone know what the upcoming shows at G1988 are? Surprisingly I can't find anything further in their blog or website - usually he gives a pretty advanced heads up about stuff. I think I remember hearing there is a Danger show this summer, but not sure.

Justin said...

Anyone have any idea/word on when the posters are going to begin shipping? Can't wait to get my hands on my Olly Moss, Sun and Jin and Not Penny's Boat. My impatience is taking over since there are no new episodes...

Ray said...

@Justin

No idea. My moss and danger both say preorder and my jin/sun says processing.

sarah_0901 said...

I LOL'd John W :)

Anyway sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but I purchased 2 items from DCaaPB for a friend, who bought the items herself and forgot to tell me! So if anyone is thinking of getting the Jacob poster or Olly Moss t-shirt, I'm happy to sell them for cheaper than on DCaaPB. I bought -

- 'I'm With Jacob' Print (will sell for $42.50, so save yourself $7.50!)
- 'Not Penny's Boat' by Olly Moss t-shirt, size Medium (will sell for $17.50, so save yourself another $7.50!)

My email is sarah_0901@live.com, please feel free to contact me. And again, sorry if this is the wrong place to mention this.

Sarah

Amy Lynn said...

@sarah, how many times are you going to post that here?

JPL said...

The Candidate Cave - shipped Wednesday... received today. few pictures below.

Loving GoMerch. From ordering to shipping, they nailed it this time around.

John W said...

@jpl

Am I seeing that right? Looks like the number shows that it's an edition of 550, not 500 like it says on the DCAAPB store.

JPL said...

#337.

Yes it is out 550. Posting on 2 different "comment sections" on LOSTARG's. :)

John W said...

I was expecting that the artists' 50 was included in the 500. I don't remember - I thought that for the first series the artists' 50 was part of the 300 they listed as the count on the site.

Ray said...

I thought this was the breakdown last time:

200 online
50 for the artist
50 for abc/jensen
30 for media/people who helped out with the thing
1 special one for the g1988 show

JPL said...

I think I finally figured it out!!! The other post is purgatory and this post is the real world.

All comments regarding Candidate Cave can be found in "Lost University - New Man In Charge" post.

@John W. You're right on first series of posters. Artists' 50 was out of 300.

On this run, DCAAPB indicates... "limited to an edition of just 550, with 500 available to the public through our website..."

JPL - thanks for the photos of the CC. The colours look outstanding!!! I'm even more excited eagerly awaiting my copy :)

JPL said...

@futureself - You're most welcome. The blue, orange & gold colors make this so print vibrant.

John W said...

@jpl - Thanks for sharing the pics - it looks amazing! As for the number - what confused me was just below the "Add to Cart" button it says "edition of 500". Guess I should have read the fine print. ;) Those extra 50 didn't help me any - still missed out on the olly moss. I'm still super happy I got the ones I did this time around. I can't wait to get them in the mail. (I wasn't able to get ANY of the ones I tried for in the first series.)

Just Thinking said...

Hi all- back on the plane heading home from LA. I love your creativity AL and John.

Found myself in a bamboo forest yesterday of all places- so of course I had to look straight up and take a picture. Ah , Lost.

John-Paul said...

@jpl

I actually just came in here to ask for Zort's email to send him pics of my print. you are def. right... it looks awesome in person.

JPL said...

@John-Paul Zort = admins@lostargs.com :)

mtutick said...

Is anyone able to check the print quantities? I'm now thinking about getting a Tara Jin/Sun, but I would like wait to get some more funds if I have time.

@JPL, the Cave looks amazing. Mine should get here soon.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, been a quiet LOST day for me, but I've just put some details of what is in the Season 6 and Complete series collections on the main page.

You've probably already seen the details in many other places, but I though it was worth showing the pictures.

A few people have sent images of the candidate cave now, so I'll try and put some more detail about it in a mian post tomorrow.

John W said...

Thanks, Zort. I'm intrigued by the inclusion of the black light penlight in the Complete Collection. Hidden messages in the packaging, perhaps?

comixguru said...

@John W that would be awesome. more clues to understanding The Island! :)

@Zort thanks for updating the site with the DVD/Blu-Ray info. As always- you're always on top of it!

@JPL - thanks for sharing your pics. :) I wish I had the wall space for them all.

Ray said...

Just read the dvd content - very cool. That complete collection sounds awesome, but since I already have the dvds I think I will pass.

MrHeavyfoot said...

Just recieved my Candidate Cave print today. It looks really fantastic in person. I am very impressed with it. If anyone is on the fence on this one I would advise to pull the trigger.

Rorschach said...

All the pictures I am seeing of the Burwell print makes me want to get it. I still don't think I would hang it on my wall, but I really want to see that thing in person. It looks like some really solid work. Maybe if it is still up after my trip to Vegas and the next paycheck...

And I can't wait to get that complete series box set, sure I have 1-5 on dvd (5 on bluray), but I can justify buying it as an "upgrade" of the dvds to blurays. And I know I would end up buying it anyway.

Good lord have I spent a ton of money on a LOST.

JPL said...

Morning & Happy Saturday!

@Rorschach - both money and time, but money well spent & time well invested. :)

@comixguru - it's come down to rotating prints because of lack of wall space. One up. One down. Replace. Repeat.

The dvd is a must. Like most, I have S1-5 (not on blu-ray), but will definitely be purchasing. The question is Amazon or wait to see if Best Buy has a similar price -special/exclusive offer as they've done in past.

Zort70 said...

Morning all, we have a NEW POST
