To be honest, this set was not designed as a "rip + flip" experience, it was designed as a premium product for comic book and card collectors who value the product they purchase.
From my perspective... If I develop a product that sells out in pre-sale I'm going to walk away thinking I left money on the table because I could have either (1) charged more OR (2) committed to a larger production run. The product looks like it will be a great item for any Mars Attacks collectors. I wouldn't be too concerned about the people who are upset they can't make a profit just by buying the product in pre-sale and then quickly reselling it after it hits the market. It was pretty clear to me from the beginning this was a collectors item or maybe a long term investment.

I heard a rumor that IDW was so happy with the sales that they are rolling out a TMNT product in the same fashion... confirmation? I haven't seen anything on the website.

I won't presume to speak for IDW nor would I want to take anything away from their own announcements, but I do know that the success of this sketch card/hardcover box set was such a success that they are planning more volumes for other properties they publish.

I won't spoil their beans, but considering they publish comics for TMNT, Transformers, GI Joe, My Little Pony, Godzilla, X-Files, Star Trek and True Blood, you can imagine the amazing sketch card/book box sets that they might have in the pipeline.

No, he's worried about making money on it.

I am sure they will ship soon-- I was told they'd be on their way "In July" so anytime this month sounds about right.

TMNT set? Sounds rad.

Who's offering AP's? And where?

I emailed Nate and Mike from the company asking when my order would ship a couple of days ago and haven't received a response yet. Hopefully they ship soon and I am really looking forward to what I pull.

I think some of the artists are late completing their sketches. I asked Nate for some previews of Gary Kezele's sketches for the set a little while ago and he said Gary hadn't sent anything yet. I have a feeling this is going to get pushed back into August...

I think I had read on another board that the blue books would be out in the middle of the month and the red books at the end of the month. It would be nice to hear something official though...
