I see big allocations coming up for this one. For the week of 2/28/17-3/5/17, stores were ordering heavy on the $125 Image Comics 25th Anniversary Blind Box. However, there will be a couple of small problems.
First up, the box is limited to 1,992 boxes. If stores are ordering heavy enough for it to top the list, say over a new X-Men title, you can only imagine they will not be getting them all in (let alone any possibly).
Next, the $125 price tag that has been floated around (coming from Image’s own press release) IS the price of the box. However, it is also the price that retailers will be charged as there are no discounts from Diamond. So if you get one, you can be sure there will be an upcharge on them and you will not be paying the $125.
And lastly, it is my understanding that there is no order limit on the box , so even though they are limited to 1,992 boxes, a store can order 2,000 boxes through the Diamond system (unless Image has changed the “print run” on the boxes due to demand) so retailers might have ordered a few early on, but once allocations hit, they probably will not get all the ones they ordered.
