I ordered the hardback from amazon for @ $36. Only hours after it was available. While it said “in stock” I received an email saying it was out of stock and amazon would let me know when it was in stock and would be shipping.
A few days later other vendors are selling the hardback for $60 and $75 “in stock”.
Not sure what’s going on but it seems a lot like the toy collecting industry craze where comic book store owners scout every toy store at opening, buy up every collectible toy, then sell it in their shop with a 400% markup. There is a name for it, but it escapes me at the moment.
Someone bought up Amazons stock and is now selling it for a much higher price.?
Hopefully the market will be flooded soon and everyone can get a copy at fair market value.
