Recalled Comics Watch: Star Wars #1 Hot Topic Variant UPDATE

I hope some of you read my last post and bought some of the Star Wars #1 Hot Topic Variant. Yesterday / this morning – the Hot Topic head office sent an email to all stores saying that because of the advertisement found on the back of the Star Wars variant all stores were told to pull the item off shelves, count how many copies sold and destroy all remaining copies. All stores were also told to remain very quite about why the book was being pulled and to tell customers replacements would be coming in within the next month.

$_57As a result – copies have been selling on ebay for upwards of $100+. Did you get a copy? Might be time to sell… but why wouldn’t Hot Topic want you to see this image?

_1421882063Have they been instructed by Marvel / Disney? This leaves for a lot of think about. We need to be asking ourselves, would Marvel recall a book based on a too-early advertisements appearing on one of there variants? Probably not, so maybe the “Savage Hulk” isn’t a Hot Topic Exclusive Figure or has more relevance to the Avengers film than initially thought? (See Savage Hulk / Grey Hulk Speculation here) 

If you were able to get a copy of this book you should send it in to grading and get that all so uncommon – recalled label.

UPDATE: Looks like Funko / Marvel / Whoever is in charge at Hot Topic, have changed there mind and now for whatever reason Hot Topic is selling there Star Wars variant. Prices are dropping fast- so sell em’ while you got em’ – but these books still have the potential of levelling out at the $30 sweet spot they were at before the recall.
