    that sucks. IDW has been generous so far in terms of printing numbers.

    ...but i guess it does make sense they want to make sure a compiled edition sell more. lucky i got mine early i guess.

    SHIT! So B&N wont be able to get any more to fill my order? Shit again! Talk about getting screwed over. So I have to pay up wards of $100 to get a copy on the secondary market... or cross my finger and pray real hard they put out a collected version which makes Vol. 1 redundent? I don't say this often... but FUCK them. This is bullshit.

    I was on this from day one. The only thing I didn't do was pre-order.... and that was only because it's impossible for me to do so without a credit card. I special ordered the day of it's release and I still can't get a copy. Good job IDW. Why even bother putting it out in the first place??

    After I get my copy of Allspark Almanac 2..... I wont buy a single product of thiers again.

    It's only because of things like this I hate being such a fan of Animated.

    At every turn, Animated is getting the shaft before it's done. The series was cancelled way to early, the DVDs stopped short of the final season, and the toys.... don't get me started on that.

    This book must have had a ridiculously small print run, it was scarce from the word go. :(

    Okay I'm worried now. If I don't get mine next week I'm canceling mine as well.

    Fat chance... I ordered mine a month ago. Plus, from what I've read here it's difficult to get your money back from B&N. So that's basicly $15 I can kiss goodbye... because it's not worth my time to hound them into paying up.

    The only way I managed to get one was having my friend attend a signing for me in burbank, and buying a copy there to send to me.

    I put in an order for one at my local comic shop as soon as I heard about it. They still have yet to be able to fill the order. I put in that request 2 months prior to release.

    Except that the book isn't in stock at Amazon. That's why it says "Usually ships in 2-4 weeks".
