    Just got this email from Brian!

    Looks like the same policy as in previous years. 1 per badge holder until Saturday, then first come first serve for the rest of the con.

    Just got that message too, damnit this isn't looking good for those of us who are not going this year. I would be a hippocrit to complain, as I did go last year. It just is what it is. Hope everyone who is going gets a chance to get a set.

    This is understandable, I guess. A pity since although I'm going, I was hoping to snag a set for someone who wasn't able to make it.

    See you in the queue on Saturday morning!

    This policy makes sense- letting all the registered folks get at least one, and then opening it up to others. Prevents some scalping.

    And with how fast the set went this year it's not surprising.

    I too am supposed to be picking up a set for someone. Hope for his sake that there will be left overs after 5PM on Friday although I doubt there will be with all the thefts going on in China.

    Yeah, I think this is the way it should ALWAYS be. I've got my set taken care of for this year, but if I miss out on future year's sets because of this policy, oh well. I'd rather see these get spread out among the attendees who've purchased the rest of the figures than see dealers or others buy them all up right off the bat.

    I'm kind of bummed, as I'm in a class, and was hoping to score a second set early, that way I knew I had it for Onesock... but it does make sense to the majority of con goers.

    I'm for this being the norm.

    It sounds like some people can save the Friday night hotel stay because they are going to wait at the head of the line overnight... for 8:30am sales begin.

    Same policy as the previous years.

    Hopefully there's enough for everybody during the whole weekend.

    I like this rule. I'm glad my wife and I each registered for a Primus so we should be able to get 1 set each.
