    how is it considered rare? I got mine at the time just for the store I have a subscription with, I paid the usual price at the time, I didn't think it nothing special

    One copy of the cover could only be ordered with every 25 copies. So on paper that's 1:25 rarity. However when you take into account that many comic shops wouldn't have had enough customers to order 25 copies it should be a fair bit rarer than that. The cover is part of a six cover set making it desirable to people wanting to complete their collection. On top of all that everyone that has one seem to want to keep them meaning it has barely been coming up for sale (until this listing one hadn't appeared on ebay for over a year).

    All in all even though some of the other covers are rarer on paper it is now most likely the hardest MLP cover to get hold of (though I haven't done any deep research on the rarity of other covers for over a year to say that for certain). Originally I was valuing it at £20 - £30 and laughing at anyone trying to sell anywhere close to £100 but currently I'd think £100+ is not just possible but likely.

    Well, no, I think they did a cover to celebrate something (I think it was a certain number of issues sold) of which only five copies were printed.

    Ah yes good point. I was thinking more of the covers that have only 50 copies (like Black label Editions which are still often on ebay). But there is at least one rarer, that being the Million Copies Sold cover that has only one copy. I think that there might be a cover that has only two copies but I can't remember what it is.

    Very sad Friends Forever is over now, just read the Celestia/Luna issue and it was perfect.

    It is a shame, not to mention that it annoys me more than it should that they ended on 38 issues rather than a round 40. That being said, the new Legends series starts very strong, with another Tia/Luna story and I hope they keep it up in the following issues.

    I've emailed the seller. I have to know what they were thinking if at all. :confused::p

    As long as the seller doesn't see your email and try to cancel the sale. That would be pretty poor practice. They seem to have excellent feedback though, so I imagine they'll kick themselves and suck it up.

    Hmm, only £16 with just one day left to go. This will be worth watching. (To see how high it goes in the last few hours and minutes).

    £26 with 17 hours left. I'm actually not sure what an average value would be for this comic these days. I'm assuming quite a bit higher than £26, though!
