    I just got an email from a good friend that works for FP. And He told me NOT to wait to sign up for the exclusive set for botcon. Due to the 1st 2 hotel being sold out and the 3rd one to be sold out once the offical forms hit the streets. They are not sure if they will have lot a extra sets this year. This may be the 1st year the exclusive sets will be SOLD OUT. What they are going to do is place number on the form as the come in. And if they hit that magic number of exclusive set to be made, Then that's it. Unless they go majorly over that number and it would be a shame to not make another run. If you name would on on the 2nd run list then your will be mail out to you once then finished. It's looking to be the biggest botcon to date.

    The DAY it's posted on this board is the DAY I'm calling Angie for my Primus package. Nuff said.

    You can call in package reservations?

    Either way, I'm waiting till it's announced by Brian or Pete personally before I believe that. The forms aren't up yet and honestly things can be changed at the last minute that the friend isn't aware of.

    So I'm waiting, and on the day it's online I'll fill it out and fax it

    Considering the theme for this years set I'm predicting a sell out.

    I hope not. Most of the molds who can be sensibly repainted have already been, the rest really only work as themselves IMO. Time will tell.

    So does this mean that people who order the super-duper package and don't get in in time for the exclusives will get a discount?

    Classics themed. That's all we know... well, other than it being a 5-figure set.

    I'm hoping that they have at least one set for each Primus package holder like they did last year, then I'll be happy :)

    While there may be a few in the set, I highly doubt that the whole set will be comprised of only Classics molds. Hence why Pete@BotCon himself said the set would be Classics THEMED. Meaning based on the Classics mythos.

    Last year they ran out of Botcon Tigatron. They give folks Botcon Flamewar instead.

    If that's the case, I would be very pissed off. :mad  So that's why you have to send that fax asap.

    If they do end up doing a second run it had better be IDENTICAL IN EVERY WAY to the first one. And they'd better mail it to people overseas for free.
    Well considering I don't currently have access to a fax; and considering how much international phone calls cost; if I prereg and don't get the set I'd be unbelievably pissed off and calling this year the last Botcon I even think about going to.

    That does seem a bit absurd, I mean if you preregister they really have no excuse.
