    This was suppose to be an "attendee" exclusive and now its going to be sold to the masses? That just isn't right. That is one thing that makes Botcon special is that you are rewarded for the exclusives. It isn't an exclusive anymore if its sold online. I just think it should be left exclusive to those who made it out to the event.

    Let the debate begin.

    It is going to the Hasbro Toy Store? Really, I had not heard...if its true, that is annoying. I just figured that the remaining stock was being sold off at the club store and that was the end of it.

    I remember a post not too long ago about something like this.

    That there is one convention that has exclusives that are sold online as well, and if they weren't people would ***** and complain about not being able to get them...and that the Botcon people shouldn't ***** and complain if the Botcon exclusives are available online.

    Anyways, just kinda rambling.

    As someone unable to attend Botcon, I think it is GREAT that they are offering things online for those unfortunate enough to not be able to go and that don't want to pay out the ass for them on eBay.

    I'd be more upset (if this is true) that they chose Alpha Trion to sell to the masses, rather than the seekers.

    It'd be nice if they would have done this with last years Megatron/Waspinator two pack.

    I wouldn't mind it if the seekers were sold as well through HTS.

    For those with the attendee exclusives and no seekers, it's maddening.

    maybe its from the club shop. perhaps i was misinformed. i think it being sold publicly is ridiculous. ITS A BOTCON EXCLUSIVE

    Not surprising, they had some left so what else should they do with them? and I thought it was the club store that was selling?

    I don't want it to be sold to easily, through stores like Target, nor too hard, like attendees only(*coughpokemoncough*) It's great for those who can't go because they're not old enough and their parents won't let them, like me

    Exactly. Do you expect them to just throw away any extras?

    so? It's a frikkin toy. If Hasbro wants to be nice and make at least one or two of the exclusives available after the convention, even if it is just to get rid of left over stock, why complain? Its a great opprotunity for those who couldn't make it to the convention.

    I don't get it. People bitch about Hasbro's shitty quality control, distirbution, and store exclusives, yet when Hasbro does something that is very good for a change, people still complain. Guess there is no pleasing some people.

    I was there and got my set, and I'm delighted that others will have an opportunity to get and enjoy them as well.
    That's correct!

    People like to be selfish/feel they are special for having something not everyone else can, and anything to take that away from them is bad even if it is good for other peoples.

    I don't care at all that they are selling the left over exclusives. I care that I HAD TO WAIT IN LINE FOR 4 FRACKING HOURS TO GET MINE AT BOTCON AND WASTE MY TIME. Sorry. This is why I will not likely attend another BotCon, I could have enjoyed myself and ordered it online instead.
