    I just looked at a lot of the exclusives and I'm pretty sure that people are going to be clawing each others eyes out to get them this year. We have game accurate Bruticus, Derpy Hooves, the Shockwave Hiss Tank, and the Sheild Helicarrier. I'm pretty much abandoning hope right now and am planning on getting the inaccurate bruticus when it's released. To those of you going to Comic Con, god speed.

    I already see people disliking other people for wanting to buy multiple Bruticus sets.

    I'm assuming this if for SDCC?

    Luckily for me, I don't really care for this Bruticus, or the other stuff, so I don't need to worry bout it :D

    Not at all...I anticipate it'll be my favorite SDCC Transformer exclusive ever when I get my hands on mine, it looks great and the packaging and dark energon shard are a nice touch.

    I am very curious now to see how the lines are, especially after the news about the helicarrier hit.

    Don't get your trousers in a twist.

    I plan on trying to get my Bruticus off HasbroToyShop. If that fails, I just wait for some damn scalper to put it on eBay.

    Speaking of which, what part of HasbroToyShop should I look for exclusives on?

    Usually you can type in "SDCC," I think, and that'll take you right to the exclusives.

    Pens to the Eye all around


    I'm waiting to see what Takara do with Bruticus and Terrorcon CJ isn't dingy looking enough for me.

    For those of you who make a genuine effort, hope you succeed.

    ....and for the rest I look forward to some of you throwing a hissy fit.

    I thought the limit was one per exclusive per customer?

    At least, that's what I heard about the FS Derpy Hooves pony this year.

    The only SDCC exclusive I'm intrested in is Bruticus. The others I'm not intreseted in.

    Why because a Zombie Cliffjumper would make your Arcee cry? :p

    Fixed. Derpy Hooves and the Marvel Legends X-Force set are going to be enough to ruin any functionality the site still has.

    I'll count myself lucky if I just get Bruticus.

    I've attended the last two SDCCs, and the whole process to obtain these "exclusives" is an absolute nightmare. If I were attending this year, I seriously would not waste my time; I don't care how cool they are. Depending on what day AND time you plan on on picking these up, you can literally waste an entire day just waiting in line, and there's just entirely too much awesome shit happening there to just stand in a long-ass line for an "exclusive" that can be obtained at a later date, and by other means.

    :lol 

    But the real reason is that I already have a FE Cliffjumper so there's really no reason for me to get this one. Maybe later in the future but not right now.

    Heheh. My friend and his girlfriend were a row away from that incident when it happened.

    Hell no, there are only two or three exclusives a year that are limited to one per person. They do have limits, but it's not just "one per" by any means for most items and I doubt that will change unless one year turns into an absolute clusterfuck.

    Check Post #6 of this earlier thread...it contains a pic of the handout from last year's convention with the purchase limits for each exclusive.

    Does anyone know when HTS usually puts the exclusives up? I need to be ready. In previous years I'm always at school or out and when I come back they're all sold out.
