    Ok. As I have no wish to get kicked out of a thread again (Long story, only myself to blame) I'm starting this one for those who wish to discussed the Prices and Availabilty of this years Botcon Exclusives. Rememebr keep it civil. :) 

    Ok, here's how I see the price break down for this years exclusives:

    Iacon (Non-Attending) Package ($279):
    Comic: $5
    Commemerative Pin: $5
    Shipping (inside US): $39
    Voyager Class Figure (Dreadwind): $76.66 (233% markup on the retail)
    Deluxe Figure (Bugbite): $38.33 (233% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Thundercracker): $38.33 (233% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Dirge): $38.33 (233% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Thrust): $38.33 (233% markup)

    Primus Package ($279):
    Comic: $5
    Commemerative Pin: $5
    Convention Attendance: $90
    Voyager Class Figure (Dreadwind): $59.66 (198% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Bugbite): $29.83 (198% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Thundercracker): $29.83 (198% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Dirge): $29.83 (198% markup)
    Deluxe Figure (Thrust): $29.83 (198% markup)

    (The price for the figures in the Primus package is also the same breakdown for a loose set).

    Personally I think that's quite resonable for a set of exclusives. The real trick is going to be not paying a fortune to scalpers for the Attendance sets after the con.
