    Note the #20 error isn't print wide so you may not have the error. Slightly blurred text in #86 reprint but readable compared to IDW printing

    Thanks Higgs, that's really helpful.

    When you see all of those together it looks like a bit of a shit show...

    Thanks for replying but I'm trying to identify from a front cover photo only on ebay - I was aware the spine art was different which is why I'm keen not to end up buying one of the trial issues. The only clue I can see is the sticker is missing.

    That's mainly more of a mess because of trying to keep the subscriptions straight. I'm not a subscriber so thankfully my confusion doesn't have to deal with that too.

    That's totally the kind of thing I was after. Thanks muchly. We need something like that in this thread that's updated for every issue.
    Since I already have V06 and V35 replacements and my V22 doesn't have the blurred text, it looks like all I'm waiting on now is my replacement V64 to be sent out.

    So, just to be certain, there were no problems with issues 18 and 19? I thought I'd read something about problems with Maximum Dinobots.

    Awesome. I guess I'm just getting paranoid in my old age.

    ffs after having to contact them for not sending me an issue and then them sending it out they have canceled my subscription by the looks of it as they have not sent last months out or taken any money and no money taken this month so obviously won't get this months off them.... where's the cheapest place to buy these? not going to bother with hachette's subcription or contact them about it

    Try messaging them and ask them what happened - I think I saw it happen with one of the people on the facebook and they got it reinstated.

    There do seem to be an awful lot of cock ups from customer service with Hachette, so it' worth checking.

    (I had a similar thing with Eaglemoss and the Starships collection - when I pointed it out to them, they restarted it without any problems.)

    It took them 7 months to get my address correct, despite me giving it to them almost 3 times a month for those 7 months.

    When they finally got it right they somehow messed up my name; so now my surname is my forename, and my forename is now my surname. I've left it though because I'm just glad that they're sending my packages to my actual address, and not to the poor bloke who lives in the appartment block across the road.

    That's the cheapest for pre order issue price not include P&P, you could find them on ebay later cheaper
