Sweet... damn.
agentofprime
They seem really good, too bad I don't have the money for one.
moreprimeland
Very nice, wouldn't mind a set of those myself....... the link took me to all these TMNT books/sets tho...maybe they will have the TF books on the frontpage 12/4.
Pcm979
God damnit. I'm such a packrat, even for a series I think has been more than half utter trash. I can't afford it either.
LegendAntihero
I'm reserving this at the Comics Factory in Pasadena on Thursday or Friday.

You need to order direct from IDW.
skiss
Easy pass for me, but they do need to make the cover art for the collection books into a print/poster.
Trailbreaker77
What is in it?
sunlink
That's ... expensive ...

Good thing I'm not all that into comics anymore
Kaijumaster
I like IDW & I collect the Hardcovers, but I'm really not understanding what market these cater to.
Pcm979
HAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh good Lord.

Who exactly can afford these?! This is INSANE. Even if I DID have the money- and I don't- there's no way I could justify this.

I needed the laugh though.
Necro Prime
I love my Transformers comics, especially the IDW collection. But $125 to $400 for a book that isn't 100 years old, is bonkers. That is not to say that I don't love and appreciate the work of these fine artists and writers.
CyclonuS_ZerO
Yeah.......not worth that price tag.
red00wolf
I can't imagine many people buying these.
Incepticon
Normally I'm all over super limited edition stuff like this, especially when it's in such cool packaging as showcased here. The problem I have with it, though, isn't the price - it's my complete lack of interest in having a collection of IDW art where only 20% of it at best is actually any good.
DrawerDemon
Are there comics reprinted in here also? None of the info mentions that, even the IDW page...

Megatron Origin #1-4, Spotlight: Blurr, Spotlight: Cliffjumper, Spotlight: Shockwave, Spotlight: Nightbeat, Spotlight: Hot Rod, Spotlight: Soundwave, and Infiltration #0-6.
ptrckcrw2
Those prices are crazy. That would $40,000 if they sell out. Good luck
dragon
ionly differnce i can make out is " hand darwn picture " with book differnt color label for each book but everything else is same forgot to mention " supposly each person had worked on each series had signed book them selves "

its to bad i have all these issues in tpb
Eggrollbs
What's a mounted signature? Is that a printed one or a real one. Also is the 200 dollar price increase to black label because of the Hand drawn picture or is there more?

Did I miss where it says that? Your post is the only mention, unless it's in the video, which I can't watch at work.
Backscatter
Hexagonal Nuts! Primus! That stuff is way too expensive!
Omegax80
This is absurd.
I can't believe anyone would even consider buying this. I'm a fan of comic collecting, but this is pushing it a bit far.
matrixprime
Ha ha ha ha ha! No way is any hardbound transformers comic worth that. IDW you're out of your freaking mind. I bought the regular versions of these and felt $50 was satisfactory not to mention I have most of the artists signatures and sketches from Botcons past. Between this, Machine Wars Botcon, and that God awful Beast Hunters voyager Prime more and more money is staying in my pocket in 2013.

Mounted means the signature page is attached inside the book, not a loose page. Yes, it is hand-signed.


Black editions come with hand-drawn art and in a tray case instead of the slipcase. They're stamped and bound in black instead of red as well.

I should make it easier to find. It's in the long descriptions on the product page, buried way at the bottom. Will look into making it more visible.

For what it is, you are getting a commissioned piece of art for the Blue and Black books. These are not a cheap convention sketches. That being said, Blue will sell out, even though its the most expensive, so there is a market for them. Black will eventually sell, but I think the Reds will be there for a while.

Although, the only Red that interests me is the TMNT Vol1 that includes a hand drawn B/W/Red sketch by Dan Duncan.
spursfan88
Blue label is sold out!
cdbenefiel
I am very impressed but not enough to get one. Im fine with my orginal save the money for masterpeice soundwave and omega
eabevella
What's even more ridiculous is that you have to pay over USD100 shipping fees if you live outside of the US (I tried Taiwan and Australia, not sure about other countries but still...). I just bought Lawrence of Arabia 50th year anniversary box set (it's huge, heavy too) on amazon and the shipping fees was only about USD10, I don't see the reason of charging more than USD100 shipping fees for a similar item.
Captain
This is way too expensive. If I wanted their signatures I can get them for way cheaper! The Hard Covers are nice but not for the price. Is this a way to give back to the TF community?

That sucks. It'd be the first time I blew 300 at my comic shop.

sell some of your shit man...you'd have plenty of money for it
LegendAntihero
I wish I'd found out about this sooner because I didn't have 400 in hand today. The blue label is the one I wanted but it's sold out. I guess 10 other people wanted it as much as me.
jacranky
In it to win it! I pre-ordered the Red label. I'm excited for it. And it sounds like I'm the only one....
LegendAntihero
That might be the one I'll get. Currently, I'm hard pressed for cash because I'm buying so much other expensive things right now. It'll sell out by the time I get enough cash.,
MrJoe
I cringed at how they fold over the signature page in the video on a $300.00 book, and also shouldn't that overlay thing be protecting the signatures, not just arbitrarily covering the title page?
moreprimeland
Might be a good idea to show that the $300 and $400 versions are SOLD OUT!! Only the $125 left as of today.
LegendAntihero
It seems kind of strange they would cut out comic book shops for something this expensive. I think IDW would've wanted to support their vendors because they themselves are a small business. I stopped buying directly from them after I left their forums so I hope they will release these at retail like they did with their SDCC sketch books.
Zer0
Weren't these meant to ship on 12/28?

I've seen no indication that it's anything but "processing" still.
