Just got the club email...passing along the info.
Hmm, so it seems like these sets are going to be very rare then, as I believe this time around many primus package buyers will want to keep this set. That is unless ebay convinces them otherwise.
and of all years for me to get my registration in late and be stuck in the 8-10 registration pool.
I do like the lengths that MC is going to, to ensure that as many people as possible get a shot at the "unannounced" exclusives.
No worries, you will be ok if you are pre-registered
That's reassuring to hear Pete, considering I won't get to the hotel till close to 10pm. So if I don't arrive on time to pick up my stuff on Thursday I'm hoping there's stuff left on Friday
Oh you didn't get the memo Shaun:
I don't arrive 'til Friday afternoon, so I was a bit twitchy about the souvinirs. But if Primus Package = guaranteed souvinir purchases given that I arrive before 5pm Friday, then I'm relaxed.
I bought two Primus packages in the hope to get two sets of exclusives. Can I just bring my father-in-law to get an extra set for me?
Man... this could really suck. For me and everyone else who isn't going anyway.
we only know for sure about Megatron and Waspinator what are the other 2?
Very likely the 2 Divebomb repaints.
It makes sense, logically. You purchased two attendee packages and two people are attending. But then again, I have no affiliation with Botcon and logic doesn't always prevail.
I really don't approve of "spare" sets being offered to dealers before Protoform package attendees. I dread to think what prices they'll be going for on Saturday, even in the dealer room. Even if protoform packages don't cost as much, the people who have them are STILL attendees, and I don't think it's at all fair that they should miss out like this.
Hmm. I don't like this part. I don't think dealers should get the opportunity before paid attendees -- preregistered or otherwise.
EDIT: Apparently, I've been DRAVEN'D!
We've also seen a tigatron (cheetor repaint)
First let me say I totaly agree with you. However, its fairly common practice at other conventions I have attended. At Celebration III for Star Wars, pretty much only those with dealer tables were able to get certain limited exclusives (such as the gentle giant busts) which were alotted in small quantities each day.
Right, but either the Tigatron or the Waspinator is likely to be the attendee-only box set freebie.
The difference there, though, was that the convention organizer and exclusive producer were not the same entity.
I mentioned this in another thread, but I'd guess if they're going with two packs (though it just says sets not two packs?) it'll be Waspinator/Megatron and Tigatron/Airrazor as the other. The other Divebomb will likely be the sixth figure Terrorsaur. Though it could be the Divebombs together, since terrorsaur doesn't fit with the set, but that really doesn't matter since he's the freebie.
The Divebombs are not Airazor and Terrorsaur. This comes straight from FP's collective mouth.
Separate names with a comma.
