No! NO! NOOOOOO!!!!
And the pain continues.
i just wish we could get exclusive figs for a change
I second that!
all seems like tat to me
No-one's forcing you to buy anything are they?!
The photos don't really reflect the print quality of the fanzines (and I have to stress that they are not professionally produced magazines which we have always said) but I think the fact that most of the keyrings from last year sold out pretty much indicates what people thought of them.
As for the mugs being "tat"... the artwork on them has been done by five professional Transformers comic artists and we've already sold about a fifth of them before the convention has even started and our pre-convention survey highlighted that people DO want to buy convention souvenirs like mugs, keyrings, baseball caps, t-shirts etc.
Until we have SPARE funds in the region of £15,000 - £20,000 to play with or a company willing to take the risk of putting that sort of cash up front, we won't be able to think about looking at an exclusive toy unless by some miracle Hasbro would be willing to take the risk of producing it themselves. We've tried asking for the last six or seven YEARS and it's just not going to happen any time soon.
The only way we will come close is if people get behind us, register and help us to get our attendance figures up to 500+ consistently then we may have a better chance of making a strong business case for a toy to Hasbro.

I might pick up the mug when I'm there.
for some reason i'm really diggin the JP nod with the Grimlock picture.
I'll be picking up the comic for sure. Dropping the title shortly but I really like that cover. I might get a mug too but since I don't drink tea or coffee, it would be a bit pointless, haha
It's a derogatory term for souvenirs and such that you have no interest in or think are unappealing.
It's a shame that AA can't afford to get an exclusive figure, we'd all love one but there just isn't the numbers to make it doable,s ad but true. Maybe one day.
The mugs look quite good, might pick one up.
