Nope this is just the pre-order page for the first Turtle statue based on James design.

If you order all 4 it looks like you'll be able to get a code to order the print later on next year.

I haven't ordered anything from GSC before so I'm not sure if this will ''sell-out'' or if it's just a pre-order window.

Seems to be solely a preorder. There's nothing to indicate that it's limited.

As far as the print... is this official? Licensed by the studio? Signed by James Jean? Considering you can't get the code until you've purchased all 4 turtles which are released over the course of 2015, it sounds like you probably wouldn't receive the print until some time in 2016.

Typo on their part. I'm sure they meant February 2015

I agree, luckily I already wanted the statues so this is just a bonus :D But, I need to find out if this offer is ONLY through pre-order from GSC online or if I can order the statues from my local comic shop instead.

Want them but I'd have no control over where they'd be displayed. :/ Might end up in the closet. :lol:

I've sent GSC support a email to see if this is a print that you can only get if you buy direct from their online store. The statue is available in the diamond catalog to order but I"m guessing it's probably an online order exclusive or something :cry:

He seems to be digging these bold red backgrounds lately. Kind of hard on the eyes imo.
Also, that's a humongous print. :shock:
So it goes...

I mean, the red colorway, i do favor over the original, just from an aesthetic point of view. But red, in general, and especially bold reds like that are hard on your eyes. More likely to cause eye fatigue if you look for long periods. I have a hard time looking at lots of red for too long. So something like this and the last one are a no go for me.
So it goes...
