So it seems the solicitations for Ronin Island were wrong and I think it’s causing some people to seek out the wrong variant.
The incentive variant by David LaFuente which is also the 1:15 ratio variant was classified as a virgin variant (even Midtown still lists it as such), which it is not, see below:
There is a Chris Anka variant that is a virgin variant that’s classified as the unlocked retailer variant, see below:
Seems some sellers on eBay are jacking up the price of the Anka variant (I found one sold listing for $25, hooray for that seller for sucking in a nice profit) and getting some nibbles. Do not pay more than cover for this book for now! You can still find these for $3.99 on BOOM!’s shop if you do want it. Not sure why it’s a “unlocked retailer variant” when BOOM! has them for sale on their own website.
You can still find the 1:15 variant on BOOM! shop as well but for $12.00, which is still a bit cheaper than what they’re going for on eBay. Buy and Flip? Not a lot of room for profit though when they’re selling for $15 to $20 currently.
Most of the online retailers show the variants as out of stock but you can still find the Ronin Island #1 Main at TFAW for cover price if you missed out.
