IDW's Chris Ryall confirmed yesterday over at the IDW boards that there was a slight mixup between Diamond and themselves as far as, the release of the Transformers Spotlight: Galvatron that many fans were looking forward to yesterday.

Chris Ryall- "I just got off the phone with Diamond. Unfortunately, GALVATRON is a July book, and for whatever reason, according to them, trying to get a book out in the month before it's solicited threw them off and they held the book over to next week. Sorry--next week for sure, long with the first issue of the New Avengers/Transformers crossover. Feel free to spread this around to any other site that is discussing the book, too."


This was in response to people another post:

Chris Ryall- "In all fairness to Diamond, while we wanted it to come out today, as they explained it to me, their system isn't set up to handle books that move forward in the schedule like this. So it was more of an automated thing, not any sort of hissy fit or petulant move on their part. I'm sure they'd be happy to have another TF book out before the movie, too, it's just that the automated system keeps July books until July and isn't set up to ship them early. Now we know."


And finally yet another response:

Chris Ryall- "Here is our process
1. Our printer sends us shipping lists telling us when books will arrive in the states, when they get to Diamond, when they will be in stores.
2. We confirm these dates with Diamond.
3. We then list these releases on our site.
Now, if someone in a different time zone gets to a shop before we on the West Coast can physically confirm the books are in local shops, and they notice the missing book and contact me, and I look into it and find out that this one didnt arrive like it should've."


These quotes were taken from the IDW forums thanks to clrobe (First Post and it's news!). He posted this in our comics forum in response to a conversation many of us were having about where the heck Galvatron was at!

Thanks clrobe.

Hope that helps. I'll admit that it would have been nice to have this confirmation come out before yesterday (without the "is-it-or-isn't-it" situation), but it appears that He too was expecting it to come out yesterday.


clrobe, I front paged this so more people could see! Nice job, first post, and it's news! :P

So Diamond has no problem with late books, but God-forbid a company try to have an early book? Lame.

I have been looking forward to the Galvatron Spotlight since it was first announced....Admittedly I am bit impatient.
