    Ebay:
    Suhweet! They're good prices. Slightly better than the rabid eBay rate - I've seen full sets of attendee-only exclusives going for well over $600 since Saturday. Get all the exclusives here and they're just under $500. Leozack in particular is an excellent price - he's not touching sub $100 for a while on eBay. And the Sweeps will stay *insanely* high now that they're sold out.

    All that said, the best of all possible options will be when TFCC offers their remainder sets at the original cost. But they're notoriously slow to post stuff post-convention, certainly too late to wait to take advantage of this BBTS offer.

    Anyone know if the Banzai & Razorclaw sets were sold out at the show?

    Yeah decent prices. All the add-ons are below ebay. Sweeps are right at ebay but I'd expect them to go up.

    No idea about whether RC/E1 and BZ/SQ sold out.

    Kinda suprised at the prices, would have thought BBTS would mark theirs up more. Those are some pretty decent prices, except the Sweeps as they're about the going rate on eBay.

    Anybody know? How about the Primus package that comes with the Box Set? How much was that and is it the same price every year?

    They're about the same price every year.

    I may regret it, but I ordered a Sweep set. I love the Noisemaze mold, and I figure it's only $53 a figure.

    Sweep gone. They were selling for $160 two days ago but started hitting $200-$225 yesterday so the BBTS price was a good deal. EDIT: I hope they weren't bought by scalpers. We'll know if we see 15 of them go on ebay a week from now at the same time.

    Believe someone overhead BS saying they'd give em away for free if they could. Couldn't go against the "we will not put them on sale" statements though. Since Leozack's going for $100-$125 and the 05 boxset was $250 they were giving them away for free. Doubt they expected Leo's price to shoot up that high. Unfortunately, heard they still have some left at the warehouse in TX. :lol

    Hey, Pete just posted in the News thread that they will be offering Razorclaw & Elita One in the Club Store. So if you're a member, you can save yourself $40 (my assumption here, when they offered the Alpha Trion/Weirdwolf set a couple years back, they were sold @ Con cost.).
