The MOTU Toy Guide by Pixel Dan is due out from Dark Horse this April 27, 2021. We should have our exclusive combo in-hand around the same time, after which we will begin shipping. That exclusive combo includes the toy guide and an exclusive supplemental edition that expands upon the existing Dark Horse MOTU Character Guide & World Compendium. This supplemental is not planned to be reprinted, and we do not know if a digital copy will ever be offered.
Copies still remain for pre-order. One reason for that may be the international shipping which is quite expensive. Because of that, we’ve been actively trying to find a way to help international fans save on shipping. And we’re happy to say we have found a solution in the way of a partnership with BigBadToyStore.
BBTS will sell each combo for $119.99 versus our $90.00. But as a volume seller, they are able to offer much cheaper international shipping rates than we can which means your total price is lower.
Some comparison examples of the pre-order price including S/H:
Canada: $155.18 (USPS Priority) at BBTS versus $168.35 (USPS Priority) at Power-Con
Germany: $157.71 (DHL eCommerce) at BBTS versus $175.57 (USPS Priority) at Power-Con
Australia: $177.18 (USPS Priority) at BBTS versus $209.35 (USPS Priority) at Power-Con
We realize that every dollar counts. Therefore, we will be reaching out in the next week to all international fans who placed orders to see if you would like a refund so you can instead pre-order from BBTS.
For domestic fans here in the United States we will not be reaching out to you because our total S/H is about $20.00 cheaper than BBTS. But if you would still like a refund because you prefer to pre-order from BBTS, please contact us before April 27th to get a refund.
If you haven’t pre-ordered the book combo yet, you might want to consider doing so sooner than later! While we cannot make any guarantees, almost all Power-Con exclusives go on to be worth more than the original purchase price. As an example, take a look at the 2020 MOTU Origins 5-Pack and She-Ra figures currently on eBay. The Dark Horse books also tend to sell for more when they go out of print, and this supplemental is far more limited than any of the previous books. So if you want a rare item that also supports the creative team who helped make these books, please consider pre-ordering your exclusive combo today before they are gone.
