I was poised to pick this up from the FLGS, had talked to one of the guys at the store. OOS, but he was "sure, can get it, no problem". Next day, called back, talked with another employee that had been talking with anyone and everyone trying to fullfil another order, had the option to go on a waiting list. There is the potential of a reprint sometime early Q1, but nothing concrete. Everything I've been reading has said that FFG is trying to secure a reprint but is having to negotiate with the Italians for licensing... I don't understand how that works, but it looks like somehow FFG doesn't have sole rights for printing. (Anyone who has the full skinny on that, feel free to chime in.)
Collectors Edition is scheduled for August. Not sure on the final pricing for it when it drops, but from what I've been reading it will be significant. For the current edition, you could luck out and find an online retailer or FGS that has it in stock, but it would be a needle in a haystack. As stated, there is ebay, but any bidding on it will probably be fierce and get fiercer as it gets harder and harder to find.
I was bummed to not be able to pick it up, but I didn't really want to wait for a reprint that may or may not hit. Plus, there is that Collectors Ed looming on the horizon.
Best Buy was more than happy to relieve me of the money making this an issue.
