It was weird. Went to sold out instantly. Then I went back to the main page and it showed available. Was able to cop. Perhaps some "anti-bot" fudge?

Happened to me to, but by the time I hit submit on payment it was gone, and it kept letting me try to check out a few times like I had it, but sadly another L.

Happy with the reg :oops:

That was certainly a weird drop. I don't think I've purchased anything since Azimuth and since then it's been 'Rise of the bots'. For 30 seconds, I was think "You've got to be f-king kidding me" before the slip case went back to available.

Missed it, due to a poorly timed call. oh well. Really only cared on the print (dig the image and think the size works there), so passed on the regular book. Hopefully there's a day edition of the print, or pink-sunset edition, or a light rain with a 40% chance of sun breaking through in half an hour edition, or some shitty edition on that NTWRK or whatever App it's called coming down the pike.

It's always easy if you get it, impossible if you don't.
