SpookyCharlie or SpookyLuke or SpookyBug
can you confirm that the toppers with the CEs will come un-attached to the games this time around with the option for those of us with low ceiling to not have to disassemble and remove them?

Quoted from RC_like_the_cola:

I can see that from their side. With it attached, they know it is stable and will arrive intact.

not really. mine for my R&M arrived broken (in 2 spots) and the shipping box looked fine.

Quoted from Tres:

Picked up a couple of variant edition comics from my local comic store. I went in not expecting them to have any. Check stores in your area before buying online.

attempted to do this today. found one store that had the B variant cover but they wanted $25 for the issue. found it online for $3.59 so I purchased a few copies to justify the shipping costs

Quoted from Frax:

Got a link?
I went to our biggest local place yesterday, they only had 2 copies of the normal cover. Sigh.

$3.59 plus shipping

How did you do it?

I'm going to bet that the process was similar to this

Quoted from Aeolus7:

Okay, getting more into the theme now. I’ve watched a couple of episodes of the original series, now I’m trying to sort through the Matt Frank cover art for Ultraman. It’s Rise of Ultraman #4 and Trials of Ultraman #1, correct?!

the artwork used on the ultraman back glass is the surprise variant for trials of ultraman #4

I believe that arthur adams also penned the original cover for trials of ultraman #4

can someone explain what UKR is an abbreviation for?

I can understand HWN (halloween) and UBS (ultraman blood suckers), and UCE (ultraman collector's edition), but UKR has me baffled

I love the detail on gomorrah where you can replace his tail section with the torn off version

Quoted from UltraPeepi:

I was so sad Ultraman was not in the movie.

yeah, that was a missed mark on a couple of fronts given that the [ultraman] power-up was time based and limited to 3 minutes (in the book).
a quick search reveals why this happened the way that it did

Ernest Cline: “When I went to Japan it was hard to tell the Japanese fans that Ultraman wasn’t going to be in the movie. That was not because anybody withheld the rights from us. The company that owned Ultraman, Tsuburaya, was excited, but they were having a lawsuit with another company over the foreign rights to Ultraman.

“Because of this lawsuit, neither one of them could give us a clear chain of title to the character. Even though they both desperately wanted Ultraman to be part of a Steven Spielberg movie. Just because of the timing it couldn’t happen.”
