UPDATE: Sadly have to mention that those that purchased the issue in the UK… you will not be getting the BABYMETAL cover or poster, as it was a Japan exclusive.
You can return them, but you still have to pay shipping costs…
I apologize for the mistake. Rock Sound announced later what the UK cover would be. They didn’t even mention the BABYMETAL edition at all, which is odd.
UPDATE 2: They finally tweeted a reply to someone saying: ” This BABYMETAL cover was a Japan exclusive, but if you email us at email@example.com there might be something we can do to help you get hold of a copy!”. So I guess that may be the cheapest way to get it. UPDATE 3: I emailed them, and they told me that the only way to acquire it is from Japan.
This one comes with a huge double sided poster (8 pages large!), which means fans will need to buy at least 2 copies to get both. If you purchased their previous May 2016 issue (212) with BABYMETAL on the cover, it will very likely be the same as that poster size. It’s also still being sold on their website.
Amazon Japan link (the one sold in the UK features BABYMETAL, but does not have the cover or poster).
