Less than ten orders to go before someone makes the 200,000th order on CCL. Any chance for a promotion or freebie for the winning buyer? It's been awhile since CCL has done any cool promotions.

Who got it?

My most recent order is #200042 and the one before that was 199984
Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

My past three order numbers were 200004, 200007 & 200021.

I really like the idea though, would have been a fun site-wide promotion!

I'll bet two copies of X-Force #3 that the 200,000th order timed out in Paypal and was eventually cancelled.

I thought we'd won two copies of X-force 3?

Speaking of X-Force 3, it appears Marvel Wiki is now showing Cable #3 as Weasel's first appearence instead of the book CCL members said hit the stands first.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weasel_(Marvel_Comics)

Is that the official 1st appearence reference or is there another site somewhere that counts as the definitive one?

Nope, X-Force #3 only if you got screwed over by a Paypal snafu.

I had always thought Cable #3 was Weasel's first appearance. Didn't know there was a controversy about it. Don't matter. Looks like nobody's buying them anymore anyway.

A former store here said Cable#3 was shipped late allowing Circle Chase to make it to the store first and the Marvel Wiki at the time had Circle Chase as the 1st. It's not so much a question of demand or value at this point as much as accuracy when someone asks.

That's not what it said. You bet that it "timed out in Paypal and was eventually cancelled", it wasn't so gramatically you lost the bet. It wasn't a PayPal snafu. One of the rare occasions an order made it through. I'm way more interested in knowing the truth about Cable #3. Lonestars still showing it as a $3.20 comic. AA has it running from $1.99 to $25. Numbers like that want let the price drop back down to the cheap box pre movie prices if you hope to have a copy onhand for customers who just want to read it. Every time a price gets under Lonestars some speculator comes along and tries to buy every copy leaving none.

Ah, I see now. Apparently I don't place bets often enough to even understand when I've won or lost.

I wonder if there have really been 200,000 orders yet. I have had a number of failed Paypal orders that were canceled, and then customer replaced the same order. This takes up two order numbers for one order.

I've had CCL staff place a handful of test orders, trying to resolve various issues, and these added to the count, but were canceled and not real orders.

One thing I'm sure of is that order 200,000 wasn't actually the real 200,000th transaction on CCL! Don't know if we are really there yet or not. WIth typically 100 stores or less open, you wouldn't think there were thousands of canceled, failed, or test orders, but who knows...
