    way i heard it at local comic shop i frequent on the weekend maximum dinobots #2 got a very short production printing run to the point that only half the shops in the contry got the issue in

    over the past couple weeeks or so i've been hitting every comic shop i could find in the immediate tri county area between ohio and inidana state and right now i am having the worst luck period trying to hunt down a copy of that particuler issue

    anyone here know what the word is on the matter?

    have no idea all the shops here in PHx, AZ got'em in just fine.

    I picked up all the variant covers and they had many to spare.

    I'm sorry your having such a tough time finding yours :( 

    Well, they are the dinobots after all.

    Comic shops usually underorder #2 issues just in case #1 doesn't sell. That way they're not left with a bunch of unsold #2s.

    I had mine RESERVED at my LCS since it was solicited. Its a warehouse issue, and nobody seems to know the full story. Its not under shipping, because MANY shops ordered it and have yet to receive their copies. Check other topics on our boards and check IDW's forum.

    Glad it wasn't just me. It wasn't in my box when I picked up comics on Sat, and I'm glad I looked into it before I complained to the LCS. I can't even find a copy at the big online comic shops either.

    Not a single comic shop in my area received this. There's been some other issues of things going AWOL too apparantly. I've been told by two shops now that Diamond is actually moving, and have bene screwing up their orders a lot.

    Sounds like I lucked out as my comic shop here in England got mine in as soon as it came out. IDW or whoever fixed this now? I know I'd be pissed if I missed something. Hopefully everyone can get one now.

    Hmmm...well, this explains why I never got my copy and my comic shop owner is very good about getting me my issues. Great...

    It's just strange to me because I live in Phx, AZ and all the shops here got it in, because shortly after posting my first reply to this, I called all the main shops here and everybody had no probs. getting them in.

    This is just weird and again I'm sorry ya'll didn't get your copy. :(

    My comic book shop also didn't get any of Max Dinos #2. I've been on the fence lately with All Hail, and I've really only been buying it because I love the art and coloring, but this might be the break I need to go cold turkey from TF comics.
