    Rankings are fairly meaningless compared to sales numbers and revenue.

    That's actually not too bad, dropoffs are usually very common after issue 1's. The real test will be if it holds over the next few months.

    Official February numbers:

    53 TRANSFORMERS INFILTRATION #2 35,828 copies
    58 TRANSFORMERS BEAST WARS #1 34,047 copies


    If Beast Wars is included in the cost of the Transformers license, then one could say that they are raking in dough from 70,000 copies sold for the Transformers. That's quite a bit in todays market.

    Worth the investment? I guess that would depend on how much the license actually costs IDW. At 70,000 copies sold at $3.00 a pop, that's a gross sales of around $210,000.

    Now I don't know what this might indicate, but DW owed Hasbro for royalty costs in the amount of $494,442.00 when they went bankrupt. Was this for one year? Many years? Did Hasbro charge the same amount to IDW? Was this a percentage of revenues? Again, these figures may mean nothing, but its something to think about.

    Of important note, Denyer has astutely pointed out that on the bottom of the ICV2.com ranking list of Diamond's top 300 comics, Diamond UK distribution is not included on the list nor are reorders from comic book stores if they sold out.

    And we all know how many UK Transformers fans there are out there.

    On Diamond's website:
    Diamond UK
    As Diamond Comic Distributors’ British counterpart, the London, England-based Diamond UK works closely with overseas comics retailers to bring the hottest comic books and related merchandise to fans throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.


    This is great news. All of Europe, not just the UK, are not of this list
