Official Word - All Botcon Exclusives Now Sold Out! - Transformers News - TFW2005
Damn those went quick!
I'm bidding on a few on eBay, though I really don't expect to win, as I'm not a big spender.
Maybe the Galvatrons will be cheap after a while...
d'oh. Glad i made a deal for the galv/thunder pack.
That makes it easy. I was debating whether to drop the cash on these at the club store. If I'm not willing to pay "retail," I'm sure not going to pay the eBay markup.
Aw damn. No Galvatron for me.
On the plus side though, that's another $100+ I don't have to consider spending. I'm actually surprised everything sold out; guess the price hike didn't matter.
snagged a Galvatron on Friday for $90 off ebay. not great but not as bad as what most people are wanting.
Received confirmation not too long ago that my Botcon hook-up bought me one of each from the convention. Whew...
I've already grabbed my DragStrip, comic and Autotrooper from E-bay (thank you, people!), so there's no competition from my side. Good luck to everybody else, though.
Good for FP and a huge thank you to my fellow members who made it possible for me to get the ones I wanted. Proof that 2005 is full of great members!
What pisses me off is you can easily find a single seller who has listed 20+ sets on ebay, selling them for double price. Why does Fun Pub sell a case of them to someone just to resell the next day? They should save some for members at least.
In the past the have had purchase limits, so I would speculate that eBay seller is being fed his exclusives by multiple buyers.
They want to get rid of them as fast as possible, which makes sense economically I guess. But I agree that they should show the members some loyalty and make it availible for the members instead.
No exclusives in the club store then I guess :/
yah i saw the seriously LUDICROUS PRICES for this stuff on feeilbay. I'll wait for someone to offer a thundercracker (actionmaster one) WHICH WAS F&^KING FREE..aty a more reasonable price. Greedy ass mofos on feevilbay.
How much for the booth-babe?
Fisitron was the freebie, but your point remains
What a shame. The Stunticons went quick.
Then again, all I want is Breakdown, Drag Strip, and Wildrider. I could care less for Motormaster or Dead End.
I guess it's time to check out eBay.
I don't understand the hate. I didn't go, but if I did I would try to recoup some of my costs by making some profit on the exclusives. I don't understand why people expect to be fed the exclusives at or near cost, when they did not take the time or expend the fuel getting to the con. I happily pay a mark-up, because I could not make it and I'm still coming out way ahead compared to what it would have cost to go.
