The Tradesmart edition was produced for a Todd McFarlane signing event at Hastings Entertainment's Tradesmart store in Littleton, Colorado, on Saturday November 16th, 2013. Anecdotally around 500 copies were available and surplus copies were sold online after the event. (Tradesmart opened in 2011, "specializing in used electronics, media, and novelties", including comics and McFarlane figures, but closed at the end of 2016 when Hastings went out of business).
