    Thanks for this!
    The TF Wiki page on the collection has had the date info up for a while already though, and might save you further "hacking". :thumb

    So now I’m missing just 4 more issues:

    Vol 2, Issue 33
    Vol 5, Issue 59
    Vol 9, Issue 66
    Vol 15, Issue 62

    anyone happens to have them, new or used, and looking to sell?

    Vol 15 and vol 5 go for silly money at the moment (£25-30 each). It is embarrassing that Hachette cannot keep back issues (especially of the most popular issues) well stocked on their website.

    yeah no way I’m paying those prices. I don’t mind paying the price of a new issue for a used one but that’s about it. If I can’t find any I just hope Hachette will restock on these issues at some point

    This is going to sound like the dumbest request ever, but when someone has a spare moment, could you measure the width in cm that the first 20 volumes occupy?

    Looks like Classic Pretender Grimlock's inner robot mode to me.

    The website has been changed/updated today. I went on earlier around 8pm and they had restocked, all those issues were in stock. Just checked now and only issue 66 (vol 9) and issue 33 (vol 2) are in stock.

    I assume they still only ship to the UK... I will never understand this ridiculous "local patriotism". They lose out on tons of sales by this

    They, uh, they may only have the rights to publish in the countries/territories that they do? It's a pretty common practice.

    Really? Just like how American retailers don't ship to the UK?

    Then how the heck do they have a website in Poland??? Don't tell me of all of Europe, Poland has the biggest TF community and the one market they had to have?
    Seriously this makes no sense. I been trying to get these books for a while now, but many UK ebay sellers ALSO do not ship to anywhere but the UK (a sadly common trend), or don't correctly check the postage fees and give exorbitant prices.
    When retailers like Bookdepository (also UK) can ship to ANYWHERE in the world, FREE, then this site has no excuses, sorry. The world has never been more global, and so it pisses me off when some company wants to exclude buyers. As stated above, they are just losing money this way, money the second hand sellers will get, not them. Pretty sure this series is something every TF comic fan would want to have their hands on. When IDW reprinted old stuff, they were all over that.

    Poland is in the EU as the UK formerly was, and direct from their website:
    So we can infer they at most have the rights to TF reprints in at most all 33 countries they operate in, and possibly not even that. With a license to set markets if they ship globally to territories they do not have the rights in they will be in breach of contract, and therefore legally up a certain creek with no paddle having just furiously paddled themselves up it. The company is working within the infrastructure it has established, and likely doesn't have the budget, infrastructure, or the license to export/sell globally. What you are railing against is not a company or "local patriotism" but effectively Capitalism itself, my friend.
    I wish you sincere luck in bringing down your true foe!
