    Fortunately, there's a good chance that they made tons of these, and the club store will still have some sets available after the con.

    Even if they don't... I plan on getting Spinister, Kick-Off, and maybe Octopunch (in the hopes that Venksta or someone makes a new head for him)

    YES SPINISTER. I'll be getting that set. Any word on new heads, prices, etc?

    I want "Kickout" too, we'll see if I can afford it.

    Don't see the point in shattered glass at all, but I really like the mold so I want the shattered glass g2 prime. Admittedly I'm too cheap to drop the cash on an exclusive like this one so its not happening. oh well

    SG meets Classics-verse, with very little Classics-verse.

    Metalhawk is all I wanted from the very beginning. And none of the other exclusives has changed that. With us getting Metalhaw and Overlord homages, I was hoping for some other Japanese G1 Classics-verse characters to show up as the at show exclusives. Oh well.

    Can we get a solid confirmation of this (if you have the comic and these are the characters within, you'd qualify. I just don't know)? The phrasing of the original post (which I assume took straight out of the back of the comic) really sounded like both toys in each set would be SG.

    I'd be happy to be proven wrong (or to chalk it up to FP's lack of understanding of how conjunctions work), but I'd like clarity.
