I wish he drew the turtles in the main issues more like how they look in the collections covers compared to how they started to look like from issue 5 or 6 till 11 or so. Those egg heads. Haha.
I don't think there's any big secret or anything, it's just naturally evolved over the past 9 years; Duncan did the art for most of the first 12 issues (a few pages were drawn by others like Mateus Santolouco for example) in 2011-12 and the first hardback released in 2015 and there's a bit of a difference even there.
Ultimately all artist's styles change a bit over time as they improve or become more comfortable with doing things a certain way.

So I've just received my copy of Volume 11 and few curious things of note about it;
firstly the Donatello Macro is included as the last issue in the volume.
It also includes the following back-up stories: Triceratots (U16-17), Mutagen Maintenance (U18 ), Woody's Invasion (U21), Dangerous Waters (U22) and Nobody Cares (U23).
The back cover and the volume's credit page both state that Universe 23 is included but only the back-up (see above) is present. (U23 & 24 will be in the next volume).
Also notably the KoR prelude has been added as the first four pages of #81 and does not have separate cover pages.
The Donatello Macro issue also does not have a back cover page, although considering the book is already a bulky 392 pages I'd say that's understandable.
Finally the bookmark ribbon is oddly a golden colour similar the ribbon in Volume 9 (Slash)

I’m in the same boat, but have too good of a preorder price guarantee to just be impatient and cancel it to order elsewhere.

I think amazon’s warehouses are slammed in and out with all the Prime Day(s) merch deals. If it’s not a deal item, it’s probably less of a priority for them to deal with over the next few days.

Are you guys all in the US? I'm in the UK so that may have made a difference maybe?

One other thing that I didn't mention above is that the cover art is a bit darker than the previews again and the spine is almost exactly the same colour as Volume 6 (Shredder) except it has a very slight pinkish/orange hue to it.

hmm, I think J3h may right about the Prime Day stuff causing the delays as I would assume the warehouses have the stock but also Prime Day isn't as big over here.

Some bookstores are reporting a date of 10/27, which lines up with the usual IDW releases books to comic stores two weeks before sending them to other book sellers like amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Books a million, etc.

I don't know the specifics but there have been supply issues for various TMNT volumes since the covid stuff started.
Hopefully it will all be sorted out soon.

Amazon just emailed me with an updated date range of Nov 19th to 21st. About a week ago I was sent an email with a date range similar to what You received.

Yeah, PRH has it as Feb 9th too, but also this:

Interesting change of colour for the spine and I quite like it, especially as it fixes the previous problems. Only problem thing is that that the 'bubbles' are still the previous colour, which I think were to match his eye.

So I've updated my previous pics to reflect Hob's new colour and although it still is similar to the previous pink/purple spines we've had previously it does look way better next to the other volumes:



I've also kept Hob's original colour in the grouped image for comparison:

Can't recall, does the Inside/Out backup story by Eastman and Sienkiewicz feature in these collections?
