    So I'm guessing the "Attacktix Playoff" is an official tournament, then, since otherwise something like that would likely fall into "Game Night".... cool!

    My registration letter came today..... EXCELLENT!!!

    Unfortunately I have the blue letter which means I pick up my set of convention exclusives at the later time of 8-10 pm. If you have a green letter then you pick up from 6-8 pm.

    The letter mentions the additional free item for attendees. That would be really cool if it was the Megatron we've been seeing.

    Probably not Megatron but Waspinator might be a consideration. I am thinking of the size. They will make more cash off of selling Megatron seperate then giving him away as an exclusive for Primus attendees. Like they did last year.

    99% chance the free figure is the Waspinator figure we've seen.

    Im just hoping that there will still be exclusives left to buy at the club store by the time those of us with blue letters pick up our packages.

    Actually, I think the free figure will be Tigatron because is the only figure (we know of) that shares a mold with a figure from the set.

    Woohoo, just got mine in the mail today with a green letter. I wonder though if I was quick enough to get one of the Golden Disk pins. Not that I have to have one, but it'd be nice.

    I think you might be right about Tigatron. It seems like an easier and less expensive choice.

    Can anyone with experience of FunPub-run cons enlighten me on the nature of the "Private Sales room"/"Sales Room". Is that just the dealer/vendor room? Do the admission prices listed apply to everyone, or just walk-ins? Sorry for the confusion level. Last large TF con I went to was OTFCC.

    The thing to remember is that not all pre-registrants will arrive on the Thursday. Aside from Registration and MSTF, there's not actually much on.

    But like Motor Master said, I just hope there's exclusives avaliable for us Blue-Letter people.

    The invoice that accompianed your schedule should have been labeled if you were one of the first 100 to register which got you the free Golden Disk pin. Like last year, I got my registration in to them in time to qualify.

    Last year's Deathasaurus pin wasn't much to write home about, but at least it's limited. Let's up this year's pin looks a wee bit better.

    Yep. Preregistrants can go into the dealer room on friday and earlier on saturday. I believe walk-ins are allowed to enter at 9:30am on saturday.

    I believe the prices on this thread's first post are for walk-ins.

    Thanks much. That's pretty much what I assumed, but some of the choices in terminology threw me off.

    I got my letter this morning (UK people, take note); blue letter. I can live with that; it'll give me a chance to get used to being on solid ground again after the flight!

    I received my non-attendee information this week as well. It included an invoice for the price of the box set, indicating 'paid in full' and confirming my address. It also stated that the box sets will be shipping to us late October/early November. Why I am forced to pay for all the things I'm not attending is still a mystery to me, but that argument has run its course so I'm over it. I will be picking up Megs, Waspinator, Tigatron, and whatever else from eBay, I suppose.

    There was an additional insert with details about converting over to the attendee package and the deadlines for doing this (9/15, if I recall correctly).

    I registered right away, so I can only assume I'm also one of the first 100 - it may have indicated, but I didn't notice. I got the Deathsaurus pin last year ... and again, as others have stated it's cool to have but nothing particularly special.
