For some reason Amazon UK still has it listed as a pre-order? Event though it has a release date of October 30th. :/


I ordered there and it was supposed to be dispatched on Oct. 31. Just talked with an Amazon rep, and they said the supplier hadn't contacted them about cancellation. I wouldn't be surprised if they took too many pre-orders, though.

Yeah, I was afraid of this. I ordered August 21st and it looks like I'm shit out of luck. :(

There's no way I'm paying $200+ on eBay. Oh well.

I hadn't been sure why people said this was limited to 1000 but now I see why (for those that didn't see this).

Yeah I posted a pic of mine near the beginning. The signatures are authentic and done with differen pens/pencils, which I think is cool.

Amazon UK is still accepting orders, but it is temporarily out of stock. I know that means it will probz get canceled - but figured its worth a mention. Coverts to $155 USD incl shipping.

Just checked, and mine was cancelled as well (it's no longer in my open orders). However, I do not have a cancellation e-mail yet.

Yeah, but that doesn't stop resellers period. Look at the Okami artbook. It went OOP apparently within the last few weeks. I had it in my wish list from Amazon for a while. The price was only $27 but I just kept putting it off. Suddenly, it wasn't listed anymore, and now prices have shot up to nearly four times that. Resellers are going to jack up prices no matter what, and unless you're constantly making an unlimited supply, I doubt that they couldn't still make a profit at some point.

I mean, I get it - there's no real reason to debate any of this, and I'm not trying to say anyone's wrong. It just kind of sucks for fans that wanted it. You can just call it envy/jealousy if you want, because yeah - I'm damn jelly now. Not so much angry as I am disappointed, as it's good to know some CAGs got their copies and are enjoying them.

No big deal either way; I'll probably just eat the cost at some point since I really want this.



the Okami artbook has gone in and out of print since it was released, so it might get reprinted again. I thought the publisher, Udon, put out some message telling people to sit tight if any of their books went out of print, because they'd inevitably get reprinted...but I'm too lazy to verify.


and yeah, I am pretty salty that I didn't check this out. Not a huge FF fan, but I like Amano's art work a lot.

Same here-- no email but it's not in my open orders anymore.

Can't say I'm surprised, but Amazon has been pissing me off a lot lately.

It's very unlikely that this will be reprinted, since Amano signed each copy.

What I think is more likely to happen is a second pressing *without* the Amano signature. It's a fairly large expense to just press 1000 of these things and then stop, and even more foolish to ignore what's basically money on the table from people who still want it.

Dark Horse confirmed the Sky would be reprinted.

However there is a catch. It will be a slipcase version of the three core books only.
The autobiography, flipbook, along with the other goodies will not be included.


Essentially, they're releasing a "lite" version for those that missed out. ETA is early 2013.

Hopefully they're coupling the "lite" version with a "lite" price. I want these books as much as anyone, but I suppose I have to draw the principle line somewhere.

Sounds good to me, it'll probably be much cheaper too.

Not the same thing then... unless it's like $20, I'm not buying this half-assed reprint.

Then don't? I'm only interested in the actual artbooks so I'm almost glad I missed out on this edition.

I don't really know how to feel about this supposed reprint, because I'm still butthurt over my Amazon preorder disappearing into thin air. I just need a little more time to cool off. Although, like Vinny, the price will probably play an important factor for me. And I would prefer to get it someplace other than Amazon. :/

They did that to me with Diablo 3 CE when it came out, TWICE. it really ticked me off because the first order I never even got an e-mail regarding the cancellation. It was just, POOF your order is gone. Nothing ever happened! Then the second time was when everyone was scalping the hell out of it, and I really just wanted one for myself. Found one on AWD for $67.xx, bought it. But naw, a day later I got a cancellation saying they couldn't find my item, yet I saw them put up 3 more AWD D3s for the new wonderful price of $124.xx

Luckily I managed to snag one from the place I least expected.. goHastings.

Amazon kinda pissed me off on this, cause mine too disappeared, with no email or anything stating that it did. I contacted them, and got the usual canned reply of "Sorry, we can't control our inventory through suppliers, keep checking" and also had the line of "you should have received an email stating that your order was canceled". That is the most irritiating thing, cause I know people here never got an email either. I would have been perfectly fine if I had got the normal "sorry, can't get it, just letting you know" email.

I did some searching around for more info about this reprint (since I didn't trust this news without a source), and came upon this: http://twitter.com/D...570473389842432

So yeah, no postcards, print, "All About Yoshitaka Amano" (which is the best of the extras, IMO), or flipbook. The three core books are very nice though, so at least it's something *shrug*
