    No reports of any Botcon exclusives selling out today. Last year the sets began selling out on Saturday. Any updates from attendees?

    This is good news. Hopefully 2 sets or even all 3 will be in the store!

    I heard from Optibotimus' Ustream that the SG Galvatron and AM Thundercracker sold out yesterday but it was not confirmed. Also how long usually does it take for botcon stuff to show up on the club store site?

    Yeah, this has gone exactly the opposite of how I was expecting. In previous years the troopbuilders always went first. Well, I guess "Animated versions of Kiss Players drones" isn't nearly as popular a concept as "Sweeps" and "Sharkticons." Still, the fact that Toxitron and Sideswipe went out before Thundercracker and Galvatron is surprising. I guess having to buy Galvatron dragged seekermania down a bit.
