      If Northstar is in Amazing X-Men #15, then the Star Wars variant is going to be a bit hard to find:

      Amazing X-Men having a 32,000 print run with a 1:20 ratio variant will likely be 1,600 copies – thats roughly 1 copy per comic store.

      I doubt I'll have a problem getting one but I imagine i'll cost me a fair whack.

      I doubt I'll be able to get one. Not at any justifiable price, anyway.

      A bit more on the covers:

      Unfortunately it looks to cut off just before the Amazing X-Men one, judging by the BAMF! so we may see Northstar on it...

      That links to a page about the Welcome Home variant cover for Amazing X-Men #15. So there's a regular cover, a Star Wars variant and a Welcome Home cover for #15 so far.

      The Welcome Home variants are the Star Wars covers.
      The characters are in line to see the new Star Wars film.

      I was expecting blasters, Darth Vader, lightsabers, droids, maybe an Ewok. Grand battles to the death over the fate of the Rebel Alliance. Good versus evil. Dark Side of the Force. Millennium Falcon. Stormtroopers. Instead we get "Bunch of people standing around"? Really?

      Yeah, the 'Welcome Home' refers to Marvel getting the Star Wars licence back.

      Yeah, I get that they are happy to welcome back the. Star Wars comics. It seems like they had an opportunity for a more celebratory image than a movie queue. Oh, and it's "on line", not "in line" and "license", not licence. Maybe LaRocca was told NO MASHUPS so he wasn't allowed to give Kurt a lightsaber and couldn't draw Wookie Northstar.

      No Northstar on the cover
      Means if it's stupid money I won't pick it up as a necessity.

      Hm. Is Northstar inside? I'm hoping he is since I've special ordered that variant!

      Unsure at this point; I've had no confirmation either way from Yost as to if he's in the Juggernaut storyline.
