    Got word from a guy down at the VA Con (who I got my gold and red variants from) that they’ll be throwing up any books that didn’t go at the Con on Ebay. Reds will be $50, Golds will be $250…I’ve already seen a few on there, so good luck to those who are still looking for them.

  2. Zack

    Looks like Hot Topic took down the pre-order for the issue #2 variant. They must not be getting many of these made…

    • rich

      I’m sure they’ll come back at some point. HT TMNT variants have historically been very “on and off” from their site. But they sure seem to get the MLP variants listed ASAP…

  3. didjeridude

    if anyone else ordered the awesome con variants, check your mail. i got my 2 copies in today! foil variants aside, i have ’em all!!!

  4. Garry

    Ya as soon as I saw the comment that the Hot Topic one was available I called all the stores around and managed to get 2. Kept one sold the other on Ebay. Some had them some didn’t…..WEIRD.

  5. Jeremy

    Brett’s ebay account has posted both foil variants for sale of the Matt Slay copies…very high price for a 1000 count book might I add (IMO). Hopefully they will become more reasonable in the next few weeks. The gold one is up for auction…if you dare. 🙂

  6. didjeridude

    hot topic now has the variant for issue #2 up for pre-order

    • Jeremy

      Thank you much. Just got the first one in stores yesterday and it was buy two get one free!

      • Zack

        Did you buy 3 Jeremy? The HTs in my don’t seem to be carrying them.

          • Zack

            I’ve gotten zero…because they haven’t carried it at all. I’d purchase one from you if you would be so inclined.

            • Jeremy

              I guess i could do that. The issue is $5.50 plus whatever shipping is. Hot topic places them in shrink wrap…I tried to pick the best out of the six they had. Message me on the Technodrome Forums “TheWarrior97”

              • Zack

                Hi there – I did look you up and message you on Technodrome – stush oslo is my handle on there.

      • didjeridude

        sweet. no problem, brother. i guess the store i went to didn’t do the 3for2 deal. i might just call, tell ’em i have the receipt, and see if i can get it. who knows???

  7. Chad

    Just got me a gold foil va con variant on eBay now just need the red foil.

  8. Jeremy

    Did anyone get the Awesome Con one yet…they say sold out…but I doubt that’s possible.

    • rich

      They just posted that in the last day or so. I’m guessing they are just not ready to sell them yet. I never saw them for sale…just a Sold Out link.

      • didjeridude

        i actually emailed them and got a response yesterday, the 23rd. i was told they are waiting for the comics to arrive, and that sometimes the exclusives they get take a week or so after the initial release has hit stores. i’m still waiting on the hot topic variant to become available. i called them and was basically told the same thing.

      • didjeridude

        you may want to report that the hot topic variant is finally available in-store!

        • Garry

          I don’t see them available online … you mean literally in the store?

          • didjeridude

            yes, physically in the store. i kept calling and calling ’em and they said they hadn’t yet received any copies. i called a couple days ago and they had ’em.

        • rich

          I went to my local Hot Topic just yesterday and all they had was MLP books…no Turtles. 🙁

          • didjeridude

            call, call, call. i called every few days, but they hadn’t yet gotten any copies in. as soon as they did, i headed to the closest store and bought it. call a store and there’s the possibility they could mail it to you from the store.

            • rich

              Finally the HT near me had these in stock today. They had a total of 7 copies but 3 were bent to heck and 2 had tears in the back cover. I was able to find one that’s acceptable but I seriously hate how they shrinkwrap these so tightly.

    • didjeridude

      sorry. meant to say that the awesome con variants are finally up for sale!

  9. Corey

    Says I need a voucher code to pre-order from Heroes’ Haven… Any idea on what that is?

    • rich

      Jeremy, nice find on the free shipping. Corey, you don’t need a voucher code…just add however many you want to your cart, go to checkout, and then below the “voucher code” area is the “Proceed to Checkout” button. Click that and you’ll be on your way. 🙂

  10. Garry

    Are all of the variants going to be available on each site listed?

    • Mayhem

      Yes, that’s why Rich includes links to the online stores in the posts.

    • rich

      Garry, they will be available soon. Typically, you can expect them to be available within 2 weeks after the release. I know that Hot Topic typically is the last to make theirs available.

      • Garry

        Ok sounds good. I was just double checking. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.

  11. Garry

    Are all of those variants going to be available on each site listed?

  12. Marcos

    Nice! I don’t even like Ghost busters but I’ll be getting this just for the turtles. Looking forward to this miniseries.
