My order for the Fables book from Giant Robot shipped today, so maybe yours is not too far off.

I asked GSC support a little bit ago about the print, I think it's safe to order from anywhere

Those sneaky devils. Their site makes it seem like it's an exclusive offer to their shop.

Thanks for the heads up. Should save me on shipping by ordering all 4 through BBTS.

Just be aware bbts is extremely slow when it comes to preorders. Expect to wait awhile when those who ordered from good smile get theirs long before you. I rather deal with the direct source personally.

Im saying this through experience. I waited forever for my revoltech tmnt figures through bbts when every other source fullfilled their orders months before mine was.

Yeah i don't have too much of a choice :/ I"m in Canada and GSC won't ship these outside of the US. BBTS hasn't said anything yet so i'm just hoping that they ship them. :hanging:

I want the JJ TMNT print. What's my best method and from what source? It'd be nice to be able to order in one big order.

Any help is appreciated. Is the print limited? Screened?

Yeah, they usually do but for this TMNT release it looks like it's a licensing thing. Says US only on the site. I tried to order it from my local comic shop and they told me the same thing. Diamond wouldn't allow them to put an order in for them.

For the JJ TMNT print, you have to purchase all 4 TMNT figures made by the Good Smile Company. I guess the purchaser will be given a redemption code for the print. You can order from any retailer that you prefer. I'd probably go with GSC if I was to attempt this.
GSC website wrote:We have an exclusive offer for fans who purchase all 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles statues by Good Smile Company!

With the purchase of all 4 figures, (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello) you will receive instructions and a unique code included along with each figure to redeem an exclusive limited edition aluminium art print of James Jean’s original TMNT artwork.

This offer will become redeemable online on a special website launching soon. The offer is not exclusive to any specific shop so you can order from various retailers to receive this special offer. This print is available only to fans who purchase all 4 pizza-eating, crime-fighting Ninja Turtles!
Currently, only Leonardo and Michelangelo are up for (pre-)ordering at the GSC website (I think). Orders for Leonardo have been extended until 03/25, so... you still have some time to decide on it.
Here are the links to them:
http://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/4794/Leonardo.html
http://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/48 ... ngelo.html

About the print: It will be printed on aluminum and be "limited edition." Edition size hasn't been stated.
