Default Image Blind Box - how high will they go?

I see on Ebay they're already selling for $325ish. Considering they only produced roughly 2000 of these, and they've been heavily allocated and orders cancelled, it'll be interesting to see how high sales climb.

I'm not about to rebuy at the prices it's at now, just curious to see how high they go.

Hold off on that excitement until the order is confirmed.

I have a pre-order in at $225 that hasn't been confirmed or cancelled yet and my fingers are crossed. If that doesn't go through I think I am out.

That's what I got mine at as well, but I'll believe it when I see it delivered. Still expecting my preorder will get cancelled.

I should have looked before I posted as I just did in the original thread. For those who pre-ordered at $125, if you did so at a shop, stores should know by now if they were allocated and by how many. The shops in my area were all allocated some got 1 out of the 10 they ordered, other got 2 out of 10, etc. How were you able to pre-order at $125 when retailer cost is that? Did you mean you put down that amount to secure a pre-order?

Curious what people get when they open them, I may pick a few up, I am tempted, I have always enjoyed the thrill of the hunt.

How did you get it already? I know Wednesday is the official release and stores generally get their shipments on Tuesdays. What did you get in yours?

Our box was total trash. I'm sure some will do better but this one...rough. It's only a handful of different (not so coveted) titles. Just blank, regular, virgin...

Yeah, it's a raffle ticket. Gonna be a bunch of losing tickets, but to fans of image/walking dead it's worth the gamble.

Thanks for the update and the photo of the books. Still I would think you would be able to move those issues to your customers and at least make back your money. Does anyone know if there are any original art covers randomly packed? Some people I have heard say they think there are, others say no, and Image isn't very good at responding.

What are the titles on the sketch covers? I could see a few of those being very desirable.

How much time should they spend responding to questions that they have already released an official press release on?

It was ONE question that I asked about, a 20 second email response from Image could have answered it and then if anyone had the same inquiry I could have passed it on.

Do you think you are the only person asking them questions?
Go to Google / type Image Blind Box / search. You're question is answered with the very first result.

Most companies have staff that handle product inquiries and availability, I felt I would go to them to ask my question beyond what I read in a press release mainly for clarification. Why you seem to have a problem with a person doing that is beyond me, as if it causes some sort of stress in your life. If that's the case, my apologies.

So here's an interesting twist, apparently not all 500 of the Here's Negans are in the blind boxes:

There are 11 SS in the CGC census, the label shows March signing. I read somewhere Adlard has something to do with this shop.
