    While I love the new TMNT comics, I don't love it enough to pay $125/$250/$350. =O

    Just got into the IDW TMNT bandwagon myself. Not sure if I can justify that much for a book when I need to save money for Encore Fort Max.:D

    meh. I'd be all over it if they could get their act together and start offering TF comics on comixology again in my country.
    Until then, IDW gets nothing from me at least :)

    Will definitely have the Comics Factory order these if they make these editions for Transformers.

    The TMNT set looks great. If I was a comic collector or a huge TMNT fan I would be all over it. It is great about Transformers as well, although I haven't really been wowed enough by anything IDW has done with them to drop the cash on it.

    Uh oh..
    I hope the Transformers collections are of the Bumblebee miniseries or Heart of Darkness so won't feel an urge to own them.
    The new Turtles are pretty enjoyable but personally I don't need this (thank God).

    I love me some Transformers, but my first love is high-end collected editions, so I ordered the Black Label edition. Which is good, because both the Blue and Black are now sold out...

    Thanfully these don't tempt me at all, adn the only customer I had ask about them balked at the price and the fact that no stores will be carrying them, they are direct from IDW only.

    We're working on some very cool Transformers projects now!

    FYI, the Limited books are direct to consumer through the site only.

    So wait, are they going to have to mail all the books to the respective creators to get them sketched and signed, and then back to the distribution centre? Or are they going to just have a "certificate" or sketch or whatever inside that the creators just sign and mail in to be inserted into the books? Or will it simply be reproductions of those things? Because the latter two would be significantly lamer.

    I'm sorry, but this strikes me as less of a way of IDW to "thank" its fans or whatever, and more an attempt to offer the kinds of things an artist usually provides in person or through correspondence to their fans (and usually, that they profit from). This sounds like a lot of extra work for their artists/writers, and I hope those guys see a cut or some sort of benefit from this.
