The Mode 5 was announced in February as an event only cigar, Martin told halfwheel he already has informed the factory that the cigar will be a regular production release and as such changed the box count to 24.
On the RoMa Craft Tobac website the Mode 5 carries an MSRP of $6.50 meaning boxes will retailer for $156.00 plus applicable local taxes.
