    So buying the extra exclusives at pickup time is limited to one of each per person, basically.

    Arrgh. Two per person would seem perfectly reasonable.

    As long as there is one of each extra per box-set then that's cool.

    After paying loads for last years extras I'd hate to attend this year and not get a chance of getting them.

    Ok, now I'm pissed off. Lisa emailed me and told me I was intitled to two exclusives. What's up with that??

    They are talking about the extra exclusives you can buy, Lio. Plus, since you bought two Primus packages, they are counting you as two people.

    EXACTLY!!! Don't jump to conclusions. Last year I was able to get 2 sets of each exclusive because I had 2 Primus Packages. They will do the same this year.

    Is there much risk if I don't pick up my stuff until the Friday pick up I'll miss out on any exclusives or because of this limiting on Thursday there should be plenty left?

    I think its a wise move. I could easily see the extra exclusive being swiped up by the time the 8-10 pm registration block starts.

    Do we have the numbers on the extra exclusive produced for last years con? Im thinking there was only about 500 sets of extras made last year.

    Is that just what you want or have you thought through how "perfectly reasonable" it is?

    I want to pick up extras for friends who can't make it, but when I think about the numbers, 2 per person probably is unreasonable on the first day.

    They supposedly have increased the production number of souvenirs this year, but I doubt they'd make more of them than of the box sets. So last year was 500/400, so assume at least 600 but not more than 750 for this year.

    If it is 600, look, they've sold 600 box sets already. I would guess mostly attending packages. They should try to give as many actual attendees as possible a chance to buy them. If it were 2 per person Thursday night I'd bet they'd sell out immediately. So no one who didn't get the Primus package would have a chance to buy them and no one who couldn't make it until Friday would have a chance. Seems perfectly unreasonable to me.

    Now if you want to say they should have made more, well yes perhaps, but that decision's already made. Now they can only make decisions on distributing the numbers they did order.

    FUCK ME, I'm not getting in 'til mid-Friday. >.>

    If it looks like a sell-out Friday morning, I will gladly give someone a hug for buying a set of exclusives in my stead, while I'm on the plane. :D  If I could do it from there I would, but I can only throw cash so far.

    See I knew there was a reason I wanted to bring my wife (definitely not a TF fan) with me this year (other than she wasn't my wife last time I went).

    I didn't know I had to fax it!
    I mailed the damn thing with a money order?
    I hope I'm not out all that money now.

    I e-mailed Angie @ MC with this same question and I was told that as long as I check in before 5pm on Friday there should be plenty of extra exclusives left to purchase. She said that they had decided to limit all exclusives to one per person until Friday @ 5pm. Here's a copy of the e-mail response below:

    < If you come in around noon on Friday you will be okay. We will be
    limiting souvenir pieces 1 per Primus Package holder on Thursday as
    well as Friday until 5pm. Beginning on Saturday if there are any pieces
    left they we be sold as first come first serve type basis. Please let
    me know if you have any more questions. Thank you. >

    Angie @ MC told me that all exclusives will be limited to one per person until 5PM on Friday...so hopefully they'll still be plenty left Friday afternoon. I too won't be making it into town until somewhere around lunch time and I too was worried. Keeping my fingers crossed though that everything will go smoothly.
