Even if I'd saved the shipping cost it's not worth my time to sit and refresh a browser to hope I hit the lottery. It's a no brainer for me.
    Great, thanks for your input. I love the free shipping over $50 at IST but the way things are going right now on the last several omnis, I'm thinking the few extra bucks are worth it for the peace of mind.

    I still haven't had my she-hulk shipped either despite having it preordered it on DCBS. Doesn't bode well. Does DCBS sometimes notify that an item was unavailable or do they not oversell and eventually ship?
    That's what worries me about ordering pre-orders from TOW or DCBS, I'm afraid I'll be sitting there on Tuesdays thinking I'm all good, only to have them not have it available for me and I'm out of luck.

    Here is my take on the current issues with limited availability...

    I think there a multiple factors to consider. (1) Marvel's omnibus printing schedule this year is quite heavy, particularly with reprints. I think there is a possibility that in order to have so many different offerings, they may have decreased their print runs for some titles. (2) The global pandemic obviously caused chaos with printing & distribution. More than likely printers were shutdown and did not complete their full orders, and of course distribution was disrupted with Diamond's shut down. (3) Financial uncertainty. Online sources may have decreased their initial orders expecting a decrease in customer orders based on the current economy.

    Again, these are just my theories. I could be completely missing the mark. However, with all this considered, I do believe we will see more copies of some of these books once things "return to normal".

    In the meantime, I think we should get used to "the new norm". If you cannot pre-order & are really invested in a certain book, set yourself a reminder for Tuesday afternoon (3PM EST for IST) & cross your fingers.

    Yes, I've never had an issue with DCBS but right now they won't even answer email inquiries. I guess they might be overwhelmed and maybe the book will come just fine, but it's kind of disconcerting as the customer to have to sit here wondering. With DCBS I normally preorder on the first two or three days of the monthly cycle, but with She Hulk DM I was busier than usual and only preordered it in the last week. If you want certainty with TOW or DCBS I guess it's best to preorder early too. It sucks that DCBS won't confirm to me one way or another whether I'm getting the book or not.

    Absolute Carnage and War of the Realms are two of the hottest Omnibus coming out this year... and with much newer material nonetheless. Iím sure that those omnibus will sell out instantaneously as well unless they SERIOUSLY up the number of copies from what we have been seeing from these last few Omnibus releases.

    Really? I didn't know. Usually when I see them mentioned on YouTube videos / comments, forums, etc, it's people just being surprised that they are coming out so quickly. Most of the stuff I'd seen that seems hotly anticipated have been the reprints, or stuff like David's Hulk and Byrne's She-Hulk. I had no idea these were also so desired. Guess I'm gonna have to go the preorders route, thanks.

    So it's only TOW, DCBS, and Amazon for preorders, right? IST and CGN are just wishlists, right?

    Marvel's not great at communicating with their audience, but they do have outlets to share information. Pretty disappointing that they have made little effort to communicate with collectors. They must be aware that only a handful of product is getting to the shops, and these are selling out faster than normal, leading to an immediately inflated after market with scalpers taking advantage. I guess its time to start winding down collecting Marvel's stuff, as I'm not collecting for the stress of it.

    I received my shipping notice from IST on the Silver Surfer Omnibus I pre-ordered from TOW.

    Seeker, out of curiosity when did you put in the order?

    Victor> I would avoid Amazon. Amazon is fine for non limited items because if you get your book damaged you can replace it for another, but if by release the book sells out and you receive a damaged copy you're stuck with only the option to return it. With Amazon and the way they package there's a strong chance of some form of damage, especially with the weight of an omnibus.

    Last Friday night. I got nervous about this one and decided to preorder. I'll probably preorder the rest of my list through the rest of the year/pandemic.

    I'll probably be doing the same. I preordered on the 29th of May and still no shipping notice. The panic is slowly creeping in...

    If you sign into your account on IST, go to your orders and it should show up with status there. I noticed mine was ready for UPS before getting the email. There have been a couple of times where I never received the shipping email.
