    Nuttin' yet for me, but fingers crossed. Seems like it took about three weeks to start sending them in previous years. Good show, FP.

    I didn't get a notification yet, but good to know they're sending them out now!

    No notification for me yet, either, but I didn't order until about the time of the Great Site Crash of 2012.

    Nothing yet on my end, but if it follows the route Drift and Runamuck did, probably I should get a notification next Monday-Wednesday. :D

    Curious, but what were the prices for non-attendee sets?

    What were the prices for the non-attendee sets, and the process associated with preordering them before botcon?

    I always thought the only way to get Botcon exclusives was to buy them at the show yourself, or pay secondary market prices on websites/eBay.

    I hope mine goes soon. I got mine ordered on the first day.

    Oh nice, Octopunch/Spinister didn't sell out. I may be able to get one for a reasonable price.
