    Interesting, could this mean an international release in other Diamond markets? If so, I look forward to seeing this in Forbidden Planet with an eye-watering markup.

    Any word on if it will be more or less than the BBTS price?

    Probably more, my local comic shop tends to mark things up from retail price(of course they have to, not being a massive giant retailer like Wal-Mart or Target) so I'd expect others to follow suit.

    This might have something to do with BBTS still having close to 3000 of them left in stock.

    We could have fun playing guessing games and taking bets. :D 

    I'm not entirely sure if I'd buy it even if it wasn't marked up. Don't like stickers at the best of times, and I haven't really heard anything good about these.

    If it's another run, is there a chance the shoddy stickers could be improved, or is that far too unlikely? I'm rather inexperienced with exclusives and reisues.

    I can tell you the item cost is 50.00. So chances are it would be more expensive than BBTS. But if you factor in shipping from BBTS to outside the US it might be cheaper or the same at your local shop.

    Having prevously held an account with Diamond and ordered Transformers through them, I can imagine the wholesale price on this could be more than BBTS charge the customer.

    Looks like it'll be $62.50 through Diamond. That's the price listed at the online store I buy my comics from. So only a couple dollars more expensive than BBTS.
