    Any news about how many they are making? I heard they were coming, but I also heard production numbers were going to be low.

    If you are referring to the picture attached to the article, that is the G2 card art but I believe the colors are just off. Its safe to assume the colors will more closely match the original G2 character.

    Awesome next evolutionary step to the 3rd party era.

    A local shop getting an exclusive? The possibilities are endless now.

    I personally am not a G2 fan but having followed threads about the botcon G2 set, I know there are a lot of fans that will be happy about this news.

    I wish Comic Ink and iGear the best of luck on this venture and a quick sell out. The better this does the more things like this will occur.

    Good luck y'all

    Cherry Bomb is a show and we have seen 3rd party stuff at shows, off the top of my head the blue and red CC trailer at TFCON toronto. The other stuff was garage kit stuff.

    This is the first full figure released through a local comic shop. Corect me if I am wrong.
    Either way I like how this further solidifies the life span of the 3rd party era.

    The final number will be 500....so about 1/3 of a Botcon run...with the launchers as a bonus for pre-orders only! We're also having a couple really nice stickers made so they will have our store logo AND be individually numbered (we're going to keep track of what number everyone got their orders in...so order #17 will get #17) and another declaring the "Pre-order version" because we absolutely want to give Automaster & Shapeways credit for the work they've been doing...and as a neat packaging variation. It wont be as cheap as we hoped, we look to be coming in at about $225. I was amazed at how much the custom lauchers add to the final cost, but having seen the rendering Automaster did it looks awesome! Certainly makes me appreciate the Botcon heads even more. We're hoping to open up pre-orders just after the first of the year with it shipping out in April (we will absolutely hold off shipping for anyone going to Botcon just in case...we don't want anyone to worry about it being on their porch while they are gone!). I'm really excited about this...we were hoping for a Hasbro exclusive at one point but were pretty much told we were too small and unimportant to get one...and with a Toys R Us and a Target a block away we really needed something to set us apart.

    We will be doing some of the reveals on our Facebook page AND once the piece is in hand we will be having a GIVEAWAY for one of our Facebook "fans"....so head on over and "LIKE" us!

    $225? Ouch ... but still, I will be pre ordering this the moment it goes up. A Masterpiece G2 Ramjet? GTFO. That's just too awesome.

    Oh no doubt. I can certainly imagine.

    How many preorders are you going to be offering for people outside your area? Rough estimate yet?

    I expect most of them to be sold to people out of the area :)  I've got some hardcore fans here but we're openning it to everyone at the same time.
