Quoted from Multiball33:
Stern has done that in the past. Transformer le numbers were increased just like batman 66 sle and le after being announced.
Also think Stern is choosing premium versions that would outsell the le version. I think the premium versions of munsters and iron maiden are good examples of that.
Wouldnt be surprised if Stern comes out with another premium version of Munsters if the BW version doesn't sell as many as they hope.
I can't understand why anyone would want a black and white version.
