I have the god pledge so I should be set. But I have had friends ask where to buy Mythic Battles: Pantheon and I am not sure who is selling it? Is it even being offered by the publisher or retail anyplace?

Ebay or maybe a future KS reprint are your best options. Some people also sell on Facebook.

BGG Marketplace, likely the cheapest place to find it.

Even if they do a reprint with the MB:R KS, which isn't confirmed, and they sell it with the full Pandora and at the same price, which is unlikely, that would be at least 2 years out, possibly more.

Essentially, they said that they couldn't provide a game with these components at an attractive price via retail channels.

Yep and it’s been discussed at length in many threads over BGG in the MBP, Conan, and Batman Forums. Also, in the MBP comments. The people from Monolith have actually commented in these threads.

The short version is that Monolith had a bad experience bringing Conan to retail (they actually lost money) and they feel it’s just not viable at this time to bring such a product to retail.

They might sell them through their own web store when all backers' copies are sent.

Why not selling the Pandora Box seperately in retail? Maybe about 150-170$, for both.That would cover the costs, I guess and people would get the chance to get the full game experience. And it would be worth the money, you get many stuff with it. Also backers, who pledged live in the campaign would have a good bonus, for thei funds.
They want prevent, that the costs in retail are not this high , but with don't going in retail, its quite the case now. Retailers who buy this Game in the Campaign, selling it now for about 200$+/-.
In fact, Im also one of these, who missed the campaign and also bought it for more than 170$ . But it wouldn't bother me, its a great game and it would be sad, if its going to dust.

You really should take the time to read all the other threads where a Monolith explained multiple times their reasoning for not selling it at retail. The biggest of which is very few people are going to shell out that kind of money for the game. Aside from that any company that would label something as a Kickstarter exclusive during a campaign and then turn around and sell them at retail would be crucified and lose all credibility severely limiting their sales in future campaigns. Not to mention anyone who is willing to pay the $170 for just the Pandora’s box like you suggest should have little problem tracking it down for that on the secondary market.

you get it wrong .. i sayed 170$ for both, I mean Core box around 80-90$ and Pandora box around 60-80$ its nearly the same content circa 5 kg. So thats the benefit for backers, they get their pandora box for free.

I don't think you're gonna get too many takers. Look at the marketplace, even copies at ~200 are barely moving, and that's not a lot above your proposed price, even if we assume that that's a realistic price for retail (which I'm not convinced of)

The KS page lists the retail prices of some of the expansions. And you can possibly assume that everything else is the listed retail price since they were planning on a retail release without the KS exclusives.

Yeah. No specifics yet, but there is a reprint happening 'in the near future'.
