    I imagine AF might turn up in this, from the makers of the Classic Figurine Collection.

    Nice! Too bad we can't subscribe here across the pond. Oh well I'll ask my LCS to see if they can hook me up with one of those sweet binders.

    In reality I only collected the figurines for the books anyway so this is even better.

    Oddly enough, if I'd got them, I'd be buying the books for the figures.

    Hmm. I have a whole mess of neato but unwanted figures here collecting dust. Maybe we should trade your books for my figures and split the difference! We can save half. Or buy twice as many. At half the price (ugh, not this again....)

    Well, if I give you five, you can give me ten change, and I'll swap you three whole ones for a shiny new five... or something...

    Alpha Flight appear in #9.

    Not sure how much information/what there is in inside of them, but will probably pick up a copy later.

    Rob, if you need me to pick one up for you let me know.

    Neato! I also see Northstar on #7 cover next to Storm's boobs.

    I think these should be available here. Thanks for the offer though, will PM if necessary.

    It's a pretty simple double sided page that gives a very very brief overview of the team and it's history from Mac creating the suit up to the end of #1. (Though also mentioning The Collective and Loki and 'the Pack' which I'm pretty sure was in Mutant X...) a quick roster and some blurb on Byrne.
    It is listed as "PAGE:AL-01" which indicates there might be later pages on the other Volume teams...

    Wild Child is also mentioned on the X-Factor 9 page, also in the issue.

    Found out that these will be available in the US (yay!) but at a lag of about 3-4 months from the UK release. For those of you who collected the figurines, it was the same distribution deal. Not sure how much they will cost or if there will be a re-issue for the US market.

    Look for Alpha Flight in issues #2,3,7,8 and 9.

    Love,

    Ok yes these were solicited in Diamond Previews (the big thick book) for release in the US! They are due out October 2013. Sorry, don't know the exact date. It's a bit different than the UK release: the binder and divider cards both come with the 1st issue and costs are:
    Issue #1 $2
    Issues #2 and up: $6 each
    Not sure if the covers will be re-issued (assumed yes because there are no US dollar figures on the UK releases)

    An Alpha Flight update (page AL-02) appears in issue #89.

    Again, no new info or artwork, it gives a brief summary of the team from the first Great Beast storyline up to the Dreamqueen saga.

    Phil, I've been collecting the entire run and there's a smattering of cameos around - Should we add them to the "appearances" section? I have up to issue 52 and the first four "statue" specials.

    There's no new information or artwork so they don't count as appearances per se, but it's definitely worth listing them here in this thread.
