    this may need to be FRONT PAGE NEWS


    A week or so ago we announced that there would be some limits placed
    on the BotCon souvenir purchases at the show this coming weekend. This
    message relates to the unannounced two souvenir sets and has no effect
    on the boxed BotCon sets.

    Because of the high number of Primus package holders who have
    pre-registered, here are the rules we are putting in place to make the sales of
    these items as fair as they can be:

    Primus package holders (who pre-registered) will be limited to one set
    each of the souvenir pieces (there are two sets) per person (not
    package). For example, if you purchased three Primus packages in your name,
    you will only be able to purchase one set each of the two souvenir
    sets. Only Primus package holders will be allowed to purchase these items
    on Thursday and Friday.

    There are barely enough pieces for each pre-registered Primus package
    holder to purchase one per person. This is even after we manufactured
    25% more pieces than the previous year's souvenirs. We wish there were
    more but unfortunately there are not.

    We also do not guarantee that walk-up registrants on Friday will have
    this souvenir purchase opportunity. We will make that decision on
    Thursday night after close of registration, as we will re-inventory.

    We will hold enough sets until Friday close of business, so that every
    pre-registered Primus package holder has the opportunity to purchase a
    souvenir set (if they want it).

    On Saturday morning, if there are any available, we will then offer
    them to the Dealers (one set each) via a raffle system if so needed.
    After that, we will open it to the Protoform package holders and then if
    there are any left, we will open it back up to the Primus Package holders
    and then the General Public. We do have systems in place so that we
    can tell exactly who purchased what.

    We are very excited about seeing you at the show.

    The Dealer Room is sold-out (200+ tables), the guest list is terrific,
    and the activities will be outstanding at BotCon '06! The response has
    been overwhelming and we are looking forward to the best BotCon ever!

    We appreciate your support of the club and the show and we apologize
    for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.

    See you this weekend in Lexington!

    Brian

    Yeah, I just got this too. If I'm reading this right it means pretty much those getting in Friday don't have to worry about missing out now right? I was originally gonna get in Thursday, but I might just wait now and go down Friday morning.

    Also, I'm starting to wonder if the two extra sets means that we're likely to see megas/waspinator and tigatron/airrazor as the sets and then maybe get another one of those divebombs as terrorsaur as the sixth figure.

    Man, I miss the days when you could get an exclusive for $40 to $80 w/o having to pay for everything. I wish I were rich.
