D&D (2024) New D&D Edition's Player’s Handbook Alternate Art Cover Reveal

Alternate Player's Handbook cover art by Wylie Beckert.

Polygon revealed the alternate art for the 2024 Player's Handbook.

"Illustrated by Wylie Beckert, the alt art cover of the Player’s Handbook (2024) features a party comprised of D&D’s four iconic classes — the fighter, the wizard, the cleric, and the rogue — all gathered around a friendly gold dragon, sharing tea. This gentle scene stands in stark contrast to the mainline Player’s Handbook (2024), which will have a bright, bold cover by Tyler Jacobsen with similar characters posed in the moments before striking a blow."

I know this is probably common knowledge but I failed on my skill roll.

Are these, like previous alternate covers, only available through Brick and Mortar stores? Because if they are, I've got a store near me that will be getting some money!!

Finally snagged this, after my two FLGS completely ignored my question. (They both sell a few RPGs, they both take preorders, neither of them responded to queries about preordering this.) Someone apparently cancelled their alternate cover order at Noble Knight and I swept in and grabbed it this morning.

Are they afraid to sell less? Or they just trying to gauge the volume they must create. Since it's not launched as a new DnD (perhaps 5.5?), not sure how much it will sell.
Retailers are always afraid something they have purchased will sell less. Pre-orders are often incentivized - money now is worth more than money later. 15% isn't that big a deal for a guaranteed sale. Also, they need to compete with Amazon, at least here in US. I will note my FLGS is not rebating new D&D. they are confident.
