    Is anyone interested in combining resources to buy the 2006 Botcon toys. Here's the tread from last year:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=89269

    Last year, several of us pooled our money to buy two full sets of Botcon toys and we paid for only the toys we wanted. I was not able to get the toys that were at-the-show-only exclusives.

    I want all five this year, but I'm happy to take them in the baggies because the box doesn't do anything for me. I'm looking for someone who also wants the complete set or several people who want just certain toys.

    $249 + $129 = $378/2 = $189. I think the person getting the box should pay a little more, but not much. Either way, we would both save money. Let me know if you're interested.

    Count me in for a full box (or bag) set possibly, depending if I have the cash or not, but I am most definately interested.

    I just want Primal, so if there is another one count me in. I made a plea for this the other day in the want area. I don't think people go there as much though. Let me know. :)

    I'm trying to figure the prices for the individual figures - which ones have new heads. Is it just Primal?

    I think they all have new heads, I know Primal, Cheetor and Megatron are new heads. And I also believe Dinobot is a new head. Not sure on Rhinox or Rattrap.

    Almost everyone wants Primal, but there's not much interesnt in the others. I can't get Megatron because I am not attending Botcon in person. I am will to buy four sets because I'm still interested in getting a full set myself so I'm going to work with dragontron88 and then Rattrap about each of us buying a full set.

    This will be the price breakdown for individual figures. Both Primals have already been claimed based on the post time (one was in the tread, the other was a PM). Please respond in the thread (so everyone knows when you posted) if you are interested in any of the other toys.

    From the box set: (Primal & Cheetor are proportionately more because of the remolds)
    Primal: $69 - B-Prime (backup = unafraid)
    Rhinox: $30 - Rock_Lee
    Dinobot: $30
    Cheetor: $30 - Rock_Lee
    Rattrap: $25 - Twin Twist
    box and pin: $11 - Rock_Lee

    In baggies: (Primal & Cheetor are proportionately more because of the remolds)
    Primal: $69 - CyclopianVision (PM to me @ 9:45 on 8/10) (backup = ambushbug74)
    Rhinox: $30 - VE Telus
    Dinobot: $30
    Cheetor: $30 - Ray Kremer
    Rattrap: $25 - Ray Kremer

    Full box set (w/ pin & any other extras): $200 - dragontron88 (backup = Rattrap)
    Full bagged set: $178 - Gort

    I will not front the money for this unless every figure is claimed.

    I'd love one, but I don't know how much they will be. If we can figure it out, I'll pay you in advance via PayPal, check or money order (whatever you want). Thanks!

    Do you want to be listed as a primary for Cheetor even though you're a backup for Primal?
