    Hasbro is limiting 2 nem primes per badge at the booth @ 24.99 each.

    I arrived @ comic con at 8:30am.. close to front of line and let in first... however as I ran down to the hasbro booth.. there was over 100 people in line already from the new & press people I suppose.... I waited for 30-45 minutes till i got to buy my two.

    They were sold out for the day 2.5 hours later. around 12:30pm.

    so if you want one.. get there early!!!! And they Pucnh your badge once you purchase once there!!



    P.S. i have pics of the new items.. classics and 6" titanium soundwave, and more - Ill post later after i rest from the drive!

    Trouble getting Nemesis Prime at SDCC?

    I hope this is the right forum for this since its where most threads are about NP but I was wondering how are other going at getting the toy at the COn?

    I have a buddy hooking me up with one but hes telling me that they close the line because its too long, theyre turning away people, and theyre selling out! What the hell is up with this? Is there a quota for the day? Dont the regulate how much a single asshole can buy? Hes not even a TF fan, hes there as a favor for me, but from what hes saying its a real mess there at the booth.

    It's a limit of two per person, they're punching badges.

    they should limit it to 1 per person, help get more people seen per day, so that the line gets smaller as the days go on.

    That'd be nice if they started doing that - because that's not how it was yesterday.

    I'd get there as early as possible so you can get in before they have to start regulating the line (they prevent people from just walking up when it gets all the way around the booth so the line doesn't double back on itself).

    People who attended preview night on Wednesday (People w/ 4 day badges) were allowed to buy 5 Nemesis Primes each. Then the next day they changed the limit to 2. I was only there on Thursday where the limit was 2.

    I asked the sales person at the Hasbro Toy Shop booth today, there will be no more Nemesis Prime for Sunday, they are completely out of stock.

    Well,, looking at Ebay, there seems to be a growing numbe of listings and it seems the price for NP has dropped a bit from about 60 shipped to about 50-55 now.

    Slag, I know I should've waited a bit to save a few dollars. :banghead:
