    So, I'm getting the Boxed set, and I'm guessing that the Waspinator will end up being the "free" figure you get for showing up, so how much extra cash should I bring if I wanted to make sure I got all of the exclusives? I'm guessing Megs at the convention will run somewhere between $60-70, think $200'll do it? I want to make sure I can nab any of the extra "Dawn of Future's Past" figs, especially if they surprise us with Tarantulas/Scorponok/Terrorsaur to complete the first ep characters.

    Think we can get J.E. or one of the other convention planners to at least give us some estimate of how much we'll need to nab all the in-person exclusives this year? I'd hate to miss out because I budgeted too low.

    Bring exactly ONE buttload of money. :) 

    Actually, your estimate sounds about right to me, though it's always best to bring more than you think you'll need, to brace against the uncertain.

    Last year it was $100 if you wanted all the extras. I doubt they will go TOO much over that, but you never know. I'd say budget in $150 just to be safe.

    Ah. That's what happened. I posted near the end of a LOOOONG 17-hour work shift, and made two different posts on two different boards, One for news, one for discussion, and apparently switched the two. Whoops.
