    Or at least making an honest attempt to...

    How difficult will this really be?
    Will the Hasbro site be bogged down?
    Is there a phone ordering option?
    Is there a bookmarked page I need to be looking for?
    Will they allow multiple purchases, decreasing my chances of getting one?

    Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Next week? I thought SDCC starts on the 26th, which is about twelve days from now. Is there something I missed concerning when this thing goes on sale at hts?

    Be prepared to fight tooth and nail with people who intend to buy up as many they can and resell them at insane prices on ebay.
    And watch out, cause a lot of sites will probably put him up for preorder/order at a time you're sleeping, and the wackos are still awake :O

    Nah, £10. Alts are £20 ($40) each over here.

    Last year, I bagged Alt Nemesis for about £25-26 (inc p+p) from Ebay.

    Also, while its on-topic, Is there anyway to tell if NP came from SDCC or his general release in Malaysia and other places?

    (Im not even an Alt Fan/Collector in the slightest, I just bought it cus its Nemesis Prime)

    Yeah as much as other Alts have been going for on e-bay this is going to be fucking ridiculous.

    He's all I need to complete my Alternator collection too. :cry

    I'm expecting more carnage than Bonecrusher at a bus convention.

    It should be fun to watch.

    I dont think it's next week. It's the weekend of, which will be the 27th/28th but might be days before that too.

    He'll be tough to get because of the nerds and the scalpers. As far as phone options, I'd call the hasbrotoyshop number. If he's around $20 I might get him. I dont like the mold enough to spend more on him. I'm also one of the few who likes him better with the stripes and prefers Mirage.

    im gonna be in cali on those dates. but considering what others said that np sold out within minutes of each day of the convention, i dont think its gonna be worth the 2 hrs drive just to get rodimus. im just gonna try my luck with hts, if not, ebay or if someone sells it here.
