    Ok, someone in that thread stated that the reseller with the huge stack of MOTU Art Books was working for Toy Rocket. Does anyone know if that is true?

    I preordered a book from him on eBay for $60. He sold 20 of them at that price, so I'm curious to see if he comes through or if he got greedy and sold them for much more already. Did anyone else preorder from him on eBay?

    I bought if from Toy Rocket before the convention started. He sold 20 of them on eBay as presales. It's only 2 days since SDCC, but I'm hoping to hear something from him soon. If not, I will getting a 110% refund according to his policy. We'll see what happens.

    Yes, he works for Toy Rocket and he also has a booth at Frank & Son's collectibles show here in the L.A. area.

    Selling for $60 is great! A $10 mark up I would not even consider a reseller. Hopefully he kept his word to the pre-orders.

    Nobody should be complaining on a $10 markup. $10 is well worth avoiding the hassle of comic con.

    I'm sorry, but these last remarks about the $10 markups are ridiculous. The reseller literally bought the books out from under the people behind him in line. There were He-fans who flew in from other countries to go to SDCC but couldn't get the book because of pigs like this guy. I felt that fans who attended SDCC should have all gotten one book. (I didn't go, btw)

    There is simply NO EXCUSE for allowing anyone to pillage a stack of highly sought after but under-produced books.

    The SDCC exclusives should be only 1 per person, period. In that best case scenario, only 1000 people would have gotten one. The books were too scarce to allow something like that.

    Unless I'm at a convention or it's sold exclusively to fans of the org, I will NEVER buy an art book. Screw those damn ebay sellers....

    I was not condoning that re-seller, believe me! I was at the con and was not able to get an art book or a He-ro for that matter so you can believe I was/am ticked off. Expecially when I saw two people with my own eyes with stacks of em roaming the convention floor.

    I was merely saying a $10 mark up for people not able to go to convention is nothing for pain and mental anguish saved.

    Mattel should be held accountable and be made to enforce their own set limits.

    Not to worry. The "seal" slips right off so you can check out the book, and put the wrapper back on with no harm done.

    I gave in as well. Considering I paid a little over twice the already outrageous $50.00 asking price, it definitely wasn't worth it. Although, you know what? I'm still happy I got it. MOTUC is the only toy line I'm collecting and the only thing I've gone completist with(I didn't do that with the 2002 line). If we have similar problems with the availability of He-Man con exclusives next year, I might have to reconsider my desire for getting all things MOTU related.

    I filed a Paypal claim a couple of weeks ago and I already got my money back from Toy Rocket. I don't know if they mailed out any of those $60 MOTU Art Book preorders.

    I've been trying to think of ways to display mine also. Any tips would be appreciated. Been thinking of a clear acrylic slipcase of some sort maybe...?

    On an impulse, I bought a MOTU art book so I echo the above question. Has anyone got a cool, protected way to display it?

    Art of Masters of the Universe Book (SDCC)

    Can any org member that was able to pick up this book let me know how many pages it has?

    Also I would love to hear what you think of the book if you own it. Is it something you actually enjoy having. Did you look at it once and then never crack the spine again?

    Thanks!

    It has 53 pages.
    It's a nice softcover-book to own. Some new images never-before-seen, mostly boxart and images you can find online (for years). Not really worth the US$50 it was sold at SDCC.

    But very happy to own one. Love owning art-books about my favourite topics.

    I too love it. I actually got the very last one at Preview Night; it was pretty roughed up along the spine. Still, I got the Horsemen to sign it on the cover and slipcase, and one of the designers signed the inside and did a doodle of Trap Jaw. (I forget who it was at the moment, but he was quite ticked that I asked him to draw something and a few fans behind me in line got him to do so as well.)
