Variant Heat Check for 11/29/16



Star Wars #1 C2E2 Action Figure Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

This is the lowest printed Star Wars action figure cover, as raw books are becoming impossible to find. Several sales this week in the $350+ range and they weren’t even NM copies.


Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus Starlin Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

I know we don’t talk about hard cover books too often, but there is a huge market for out of print hardcover books, especially the ones that are still sealed. As we get closer to the movie, all things Thanos are going to explode, and these omnibuses (both the regular and variant cover) are going for good money.

X-Force #2 Adi Granov 1:50 Variant

X-Force #2 1:50 Granov Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

This book has slowly disappeared, and with less than an estimated 700 copies I don’t expect to see a lot of them out there.


Ghost Rider #1 Photo Variant

Bonus book!

I typically don’t care for photo variants, but this one takes the cake.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.

      What is funny I posted about the Luke Skywalker action figure last night on John Tyler Christopher’s facebook page because some people were seeking it. Also that GHOST RIDER, it was still available last night on Midtown, as of this morning.. GONE.. hmm

    Not to be a stickler, because I really like that Ghost Rider character, but I find that photo variant to be a very dull cover, just because of the pose/lighting/surroundings. I’d have loved to have seen a more imaginative, creative and/or dynamic pose of the character. Perhaps a hint at a background like an alleyway with a glint off of the car and the head being more the focus, as most of his head flames are cut off high up on the comic and that’s what makes him Ghost Rider. Still cool…just as boring and clinical as possible.

    Wanted that Action Figure Variant since it came out, should of bit the bullet then. Too late now!

    Is the Michael Turner dust jacket to the Old Man Logan HC a variant or just a 50/50 split?
