    Wonder if that means that there was a S-ton of them left that the club didn't think they could sell on their own. I am one who liked the set, but based on the feedback in the lead up to the convention, a lot of people did not.

    I'd say that's most likely the case, I believe there were no reports of it being sold out. It also has the largest number of box sets yet for a Botcon, so wouldn't be surprised if they felt they had to find another way of disposing of it.

    ^Even this link shows off the figures better than the official BotCon page.

    If that's the "big news", I'm severely underwhelmed... Hopefully there's more news forthcoming...

    It's a great opportunity for the Japanese fans.

    I'm guessing they're probably going to offer the subscription service as well.

    I would tend to think this agreement was in the works prior to BotCon, and that these were set aside for this.

    Great news for Japanese fans, but only 150 sets? Isn't that like, 10 percent of the entirety of the production line?

    I'm hoping its a reciprocal agreement and we have access to e-hobby exclusives thru the club.

    The sell out announcement was tweeted during the weekend of Botcon. Not sure if the 'Ehobby 150' is part of the original run.
