    Does anyone know if Alpha Trion/Weirdwolf, Huffer/Springer, Vector Sigma, and the Classics poster sold out? 1400 of each is a lot compared to previous years, almost triple last year's production run, and ebay prices are surprisingly soft so far. Even with the OMG first day available factor, I've seen all of them go for less than double their original prices, which is pretty damn reasonable considering last year the 2006 toys were going for triple or quadruple price consistently.

    The bagged sets are sold out for sure, and I think that the VS set may have come close. Though there were a ton of lithos. They were using it as a "buy something, get this for cheep"

    I really don't get the appeal of the Vector Sigma set, what with it being just a big hollow yellow ball on a stick, and the fact that Alpha Trion's minicon companion is supposed to be a sentient form of VS that travels with A3.

    That litho, though, it may not cost much, but MAN is it nice to look at. :)

    The word I have been hearing going around is they "accidentally" left a pallet of Alpha Trion/Weirdwolf, Huffer/Springer, (and maybe Vector Sigma) back in Texas. So keep an eye out the club store might end up selling them.

    According to the people working the TFCC booth, they left a pallet of the Alpha Trion/Weirdwolf two packs in Texas, as buzzbeak said. They still apparently had plenty of the Huffer/Springer two packs as of Saturday afternoon, when I picked up two additional sets.

    Also when I ordered two additional sets of the AT/WW 2-packs, Angie said that they would be shipping them out after the convention at their cost.

    I can confirm that, as I got the same story from them.

    Ebay:
    I was told they sold out of Huffer and Springer sets at the show on Sunday. I doubt they will put the Alpha Trion/Weirdwolf on their club site. They had Ratchet/Flareup sets left in 2005 and offered them to Primus Package holders, then Iacon holders. I was Iacon and got to buy a set for the convention price, but it was all through email.
