You should buy this because you WANT it. Why? Because 100,000 copies of something makes it NOT rare. This is not something that you will be able to sell on eBay for 20x the price the day after it's released, a year after or even 20 years.
If you want this, you should be buying it for the right reasons... or you'll be disappointed.
Did this REALLY need a thread of its own?Theres a thread recieving official responses for info.
100,000 copies worldwide is still kind of rare, though obviously not as limited as the 7 originals. I agree it's something that you should buy because you want it, and not to sell it on ebay, but equally this is something that most people will want to have a value in years to come...after all, collectors items often started out as everyday items with no value, so why shouldn't a limited edition and slightly expensive book that is associated with such a massive and well loved series?
